My relationships usually last 3-6 months for the past 5~ish yrs
Love is never a logical thing. I still wish you the best of luck in your relationship either way :)
Had a relationship while playing FFXI. Basically I never partied and only solo'd. She said she understood how the game works, with you playing with other people and suddenly having to go being a very bad thing. Yet EVERY time the situation arose where I had free time and wanted to play she'd decide she wanted to call and talk on the phone. You can't tank and talk, you end up half-assing one of them... and she could always tell that I was paying attention to the game. (Sure they're just pixels on my tv.. yet I know those pixels are controlled by someone else.. and that person has invested who knows how much of their time into their character. It's just not very nice to let someone die, causing hours of their time to be for nothing.) I'd say I was logging out and just force d/c if she was acting itchby about it, even if she said "No, it's ok, You play your game." Finally it got to the point where I just stopped playing because I always felt guilty and couldnt enjoy it any more.
Now I'm single again and have all the time I want to play.
**** I miss her.
*Game had nothing to do with our demise. Her not acting like a grownup and living her life for her parents instead of herself at the age of 30 / Me being frustrated and argumentative all the time because of that were the main factors.
Dated one girl, once. She was in high school and I had graduated two years prior. (I graduated in '02 and it was '04). I was at home at 1 PM and I had gotten into a group on WHM roughly 30 mins prior. She decided to cut class and just show up at my place. Obviously I wasn't expecting her, and I was not about to bail on a group at 1 PM EST and leave them without a WHM; they'd probably have broken up and I wasn't about to ***** five people over because my girlfriend showed up with no warning.
So she hung out while I was on the computer and we talked.
Eventually she asks me, quote: "Are you going to spend time with me or play that stupid game"?
I replied, without missing a beat and without even looking away from the screen for a split second, quote: "Play this stupid game"
Did you know that if enough force is exerted by the palm to the rear of the human skull, one's face can bounce (yes, BOUNCE) off of a 17" CRT monitor?
Kinda hurt. She stormed out. I got level 67. Edited, Dec 6th 2010 8:43pm by Mikhalia
