    too bad she needs to realize men can't give them 100% attention all the time we need our frigen space and alone time.For me i'm not married or have a GF because they would just complicate my life and these days I have a lot on my plate and with the way me being bipolar they would just piss me off with wanting my attention all the time.

    Hopefully you find the right girl.When you do, you'll want to giver her 100%, and when you're apart you'll feel incomplete.

    I understand most of you guys here are young, but if you end up with the right girl, gaming won't seem as important.Fun yes, but not important.

    -21 years, and still happy

    what's the difference between a girlfriend and a high-end graphic card?


    none, both of them require a lot of money. [​IMG]

    My GF doesn't care, she watches a lot of TV, she studies law though so she's entitled to her relaxation time...

    She let me spend a lot of our combined savings ( spendings ) on a 40" TV for my room, and then I needed a new blu ray player as the old one wouldn't play some of my movies ( and wouldn't update firmware ), and of course I needed a $300 glass entertainment unit for said TV...she let me get that too, and just today I told her I was going to start saving a bit of money each week for a gtx480...and she said I could use my tax money to get it in a month :D ( we had a prior agreement that in return for me using so much of our money for my stuff that she would get my tax return )

    Yep I love my mrs..so nope it's all good.

    EDIT:

    I'm not married but we've been together 4 years, and have lived together for as long, joint bank accounts, shared income and such.

    @Year, your post reminded me of a good and relevant quote

    "those who are willing to trade freedom( to play games ) for security ( having a mrs ) deserve neither" - Benjamin Franklin

    She should just deal with it, if she doesn't respect your lifestyle and hobbies, then she is the wrong mrs, I wouldn't never tell my mrs she couldn't do something, and vice versa


    That says it all right there...you're affraid of her, you need to whip your pants off her right now

    In my 40's married for 16 years, she dosen't get it, but she also dosen't complain about it. I usually play 5 to 10 hrs weekly. I had to laugh at her the other day cause she was playing farmville. She gave me a quick run down on the concept, all I could say was it dosen't go fast and your not shooting anyone so what's the point?

    He needs to tell her she's immature for watching TV programmes he doesn't like, or thinks are stupid.

    The difference is one doesn't whine, complain and mostly does what it says on the box, while the other (possibly) suffers from permanent pms.

    Better not show her then, you'll get whipped if she does.

    I used to play games a lot, when I was a teen, but now I can't even play for more than 20min, I just get bored, so I don't anymore as I used to.

    I do other things with my time, but just yesterday I bought a game on eBay, Crysis Warhead, I think I played a little at the local PC shop and it was fun but I'm sure after 20 min I'll get bored and do something else.

    I got an XBOX 360, Wii & PS2, played with them maybe for 1 hour each in about a year or less, my son plays that, I can't.

    I use my XBOX360 mainly for Netflix these days.

    I'm 32, been married for 3 years, with her for almost 9

    The only time she ever complained about gaming was when i was playing WoW excessively, and she was totally right. I jacked it in the same day and never played it again (3 years ago)

    I still play games each day, manage 2 hours in the gym each morning before work and spend time with our little girl whilst helping around the house.

    There is always time for everything, you just need to make it.

    A successful marriage is about respect and compromise.

    Amen brother! You are completely right, and to the rest of you guys - if you can't put your wife before your hobby then you don't deserve a relationship & at the same time if your wife won't allow her husband some time to relax with a hobby a couple nights a week (or more) then she doesn't deserve a relationship either. It's all about mutual love (yes that "L" word) and respect for each other. :)

    Wow, lots of veterans around here!!
    Although i'm not married i would like to give my 2C here :D

    Lately i've found the PC to be extremely boring so i will probably not game like i used to when i get older.
    Every single game is getting boring for me, don't know why xD
    The only games that i still play are FPS and not much lately
