    He will fall asleep watching TV at 6:00 and then expect to play video games all night. If you can't stay awake during "my time", you don't need to be up playing video games......you obviously need to go to bed early.

    Not much advise to give but to tell you to tell him you want him to spend time with you...awake...and that (although you understand video games are important to him (and one of the reasons you love him...right?)) video games should not take priority over you and your relationship.

    Make sure you let him know its a serious concern.

    Us guys need women to be forward with us. Dont tell me to be romantic and be upset when I dont meet your expectations. Im not a mind reader and I can be happy by making you happy if ya just tell me how!

    Imagine who had that talk recently...

    No, we do not know what you are thinking. And yes, we are that dense.

    Also...my peeve is facebook...its a great way to make someone feel unimportant. Spend too much time on it and your significant other will start looking for other ways to waste his/her time, and that can be trouble.

    He plays pretty much every night from 9 or 10 pm until past Midnight. On the weekends it's a lot later. He knows I don't care about that but that I care if he's falling asleep while he's supposed to be spending time with me. And you were supposed to share a pet peeve of yours......

    That's why we have a joint FB account. Then everything is alright.

    I am very outspoken and he knows exactly what I want. No cryptic messages from this girl.

    What does he do for a living? I have know several friends with the exact problem you are having with him and they eventually stopped their addiction because of either work or women (usually a new woman having not had one previously). Dunno what other advice to offer other than "drastic measures."...

    Sorry :)

    Mmmm, one of my pet peeves is whenever my wide moved in with me "just girlfriend then" she is the one that decorated everything.which is fine, but i dont have any say so on where anything goes anymore. If i try to put something somewhere,she will just take it down. Alot of times i will think something looks good but she wont want any part of it :-/

    That is a good girl! :D


    OK, my pet peeve is stupidity (not ignorance) that i failed to notice early enough in the relationship. Stupid women get boring REALLY quickly. Another pet peeve is the "pretend dummy" who thinks it makes her more attractive to not know how to do some things (kinda the flipside).

    Worst of all is behind-the-back manipulation; for good ends or not, manipulating someone you are intimate with is not cool, no matter what her mother taught her. I am a grown-up; deal with me as such or GTFO.

    He is a welder and works in hydraulics etc. I know he's hot and tired when he gets home, it's just frustrating. "drastic measures" don't work. I don't mind him enjoying the games, I would just like to be equally enjoyed.....

    That stinks. You should have some input on decorations..... But I guess you have to choose your battles.

    I hate when I see women play dumb to try and look cute as well. Manipulation is crap too. Playing games is for kids.

    Perhaps some cosplay, maybe a "Rosie the Riveter" throw-back? Alternatively, i can imagine how a female could easily convert her maidenly form to resemble a video game controller, especially the old N64 ones. "This button makes me go fast; this button makes me jump; that button gets you smacked upside the head...

    :D ;)

    You're funny. We don't have problems there. I just get agitated when he puts on a show I didn't want to watch in the first place and then goes to sleep.

    The best thing to do is, don't say anything because then it starts an argument. That's the secret!
