Men Who Play Too Many Video Games!
There is just so much time in a week, work taking five days, and then the weekend you were looking forward to comes along. When you and your boyfriend or husband met there were so many things to do, the dates were a journey of his and your imagination.
Once that love bug has bit you see the real person, but awe he’s so cute you can’t kiss him goodbye. Why, because you love him, after all he did take you on dates before and the potential is still there. Plus he is so expressive when he plays his games, the throwing of the control, the scream at the screen, you never seen this side of him before.
So you tell yourself let him play his games thinking soon enough he will tire of them, and then we can go to the beach, or to the mountains on a picnic like we used to. The game WOW is released, and he not only plays games but hooks up to Vent where he can talk to the other players about things you never heard of. His conversations ‘after’ he plays is about the realm he has reached, what raid is going on, and even Jim bob’s schedule at work needing to match his.
That’s pretty much the last straw so you go out shopping with a vengeance and buy clothes to entice his eyes back to you, and test his temper looking at the MasterCard bills, and even that doesn’t work.
With the game capturing his attention, the evenings constitute him playing right beside you and when you talk to him he doesn’t respond. If you get angry and ask him what you said, he replies he heard you and gives quite the wrong answer.
Such Dating and Wedded Bliss!
You sit there with all your feminine wiles and plot, grow angry, and become worse than any enemy in the game he is fighting. He doesn’t even notice, in fact he has become Slide-Jenkins in the game, you hear people calling him that on Vent so it must be. Even in the kitchen you can hear voices, "Slide hurry back what's taking you so long!"
As the old saying goes if you can’t beat them... join them. That’s right I am known today as Slinky-Jenkins.
The games are great we even eat dinner while playing, and that’s a task.
Isn’t Love Grand?
