If you like your game more than your girlfriend, you’re an asshole Reality check for manchildren.

I regularly hear gamers complain that their girlfriends are on their cases about playing too much. First, you might not be an asshole. You might just be an idiot. Don’t date a non-gamer if you want someone to understand your gaming habits. It’s that simple.

But that’s not what I want to talk about today. Today, I’d like to talk about the fact that video games are not better than your girlfriend. If you treat them as such, you’re an asshole.

It’s a common misconception for some reason that girl gamers are a rare breed. Not really. But there are still more guys who enjoy games, and the ratio is even more skewed if you’re talking about “hardcore” (I hate that word) gamers versus casual gamers.

Log online to any game you enjoy, though, and you’ll find plenty of females. They’re around. If you’re someone who’s super into video games, that’s the type of girl you should go after. Again, if you don’t, you’re kinda a moron, and I don’t have much sympathy for you when your girlfriend starts shrieking that you play too much after only being online for ten minutes.

Yes, there is such a thing as gaming too much. And no, it has nothing to do with her hormonal moods.

The absolutely coolest gamer girl in the world won’t stand for it if you’re into your tenth straight hour of World of Warcraft or Sekiro and she’s lying on the bed naked.

Ok, maybe on launch day you get a free pass, but if you’re neglecting sex because you’re too involved with a game, you’re an asshole.

Asshole, asshole, asshole.

Oh, I know, I know. You would never pass up a hot, naked chick for a video game. So says just about every guy in the world. But most girls aren’t just going to undress, spread their legs, and wait for you to come running into the bedroom. Most girls like it if your initiate, at least some of the time. If she’s getting into the shower, put down the controller and surprise her by joining in. Rub-a-dub-dub. Think about it – when is the last time you stopped gaming to initiate sex with your girlfriend?

This isn’t just about naked girls, though.

Sexy fun time is just part of what makes a relationship work. If you’re truly going to build something together, you have to each uphold your end of the household chores. Haven’t moved in together yet? Irrelevant. Clean your damn apartment. If your girlfriend is coming over and there’s pee on the toilet seat, it doesn’t matter if she’s a gamer or not – she’s going to feel disrespected that you couldn’t walk away from the TV for ten minutes to tidy up.

It also helps to be a multi-dimensional person. Gaming is awesome, but if that’s all you do, your girlfriend is going to feel like she’s in a rut pretty quickly. Work, game, sleep. Wake up and repeat. Where’s the spice in your relationship? Where’s the fun? Get away for a few hours to see a movie and go to dinner. Take the dog for a walk together. Roadtrip to visit some friends. Even gamer girls need to get away from the screen now and then.

The problem with a lot of male gamers is that they do all of this already – but on their own schedule. They make gaming a priority, but when they’re horny, they get off. When they’re grossed out by their apartment, they clean up a little. When they’re bored, they go do something unrelated to video games. The disconnect comes from not realizing that when you’re in a relationship, your own schedule isn’t the only thing that matters. You might not need a break yet, but she does – so turn it off and turn her on.

If you love to game, dating a gamer is by far one of the best ways to ensure that you don’t have to give up your hobby because your significant other doesn’t approve. That doesn’t mean you don’t have to make an effort to put your girlfriend first. Most relationships with gamers end because the game is treated better than the girlfriend.

Please, for the sake of us single gamer girls out there – clean up your asshole act.

  1. Men game as a ‘time out’ from their girlfriend’s constant nagging and attention seeking. Go find yourself something to keep yourself busy and STFU.

  2. Pffft… who listens to women anymore?. They whine about everything and never happy. Hetmy ladies, if you dont like it, go the kitchen and make me a sammich before you walk out the door. There are plenty other fish in sea cooler than you are.

    • I believe grown men should not only be able to make their own food but they should know the proper spelling of ” sandwich “.

  3. Or maybe the girlfriend needs to “woman-up” in the relationship and make herself more interesting and fulfilling than a video game? I mean, I know that would be the narrative if you reversed genders.

  4. Or… just don’t date at all. If your game is your life, why would you even bother with a girlfriend? So what if the world shames you for being a virgin or a manchild or whatever shaming language they use for men who refuse to engage with women? You’re enjoying your game time aren’t you? So why ruin that by bringing a woman into your life that you simply don’t need?

    • This is my standard practice.. and I don’t play video games.
      GFs usually get in the way, with an agenda, or attention seeking.
      Friend w benefits is the only way to go

  5. If you like your material goods and safety more than your husband/boyfriend, then you are an Evil Skank. Grow up and learn some responsibility, missy.

    Men need to get over silly, stupid women trying to tell them what to do and how to live. Eff off all you little punkettes.

  6. This is such bitter article, you can tell that it’s really a personal issue. News flash: “If your bf/gf ignores you and prefers his/her hobby over spending time with you, your relationship is a sinking ship”. Reaaaaaally unexpected, right? FFS, relationships are complicated and differ from couple to couple. If you are miserable in your relationship, then something is wrong with one of you (or both). But blanket statements like the one this article proposes doesn’t help anyone.

  7. Women are not valuable anymore. If a woman doesn’t give her best years to a man, she doesn’t deserve true effort, attention and loyalty from the man. Women are only valuable when they are married as young virgins in the prime of their fertility, who support their husband and bear his children.

    It is fine though, women are more miserable than ever, thank God. Those who go against natural order and the law of causality, will get replaced, all it takes is time. Islam will most likely dominate the west in a century and take away women’s rights and put them back in their place.

      • I don’t like the outcome he paints either. But men love and adore women so much they have let them become horrid examples of human-beings. All morality is lost, the narrative (as seen in the article) is down to the biggest loser…. and as women are finally seeing they, women, will be the losers in the gender war. Why will women be the losers you ask: Because men do not even have to play to win; all we have to do is be ourselves, show up, and point and laugh.
        Personally I’d rather not see Islam take over the west,, but apparently the Liberties allowed by Christianity (called voluntary participation) is not within the (child-like) mindset of women..
        Feminism has exposed women’s true nature as: selfish, immoral, and monstrous at a political level (Marxist.)
        Feminism has also exposed men’s nature of: loving women so much that they will sacrifice everything for them… we always knew men would fight kill and DIE for women… but now we know that men are even willing to sacrifice a fine and honorable country on the basis of women’s whims.
        Color me not only MGTOW, but John Galt as well, while I enjoy the decline of western civilization (into decay and collapse) From what I have seen western countries (and women) won’t deserve good men.

  8. It’s articles like these I pray for Islam’s complete domination over the West. Fuck the United States, fuck Europe, and lastly fuck ALL the West.

    Arrogant scum from hell.
