All my boyfriend wants to do lately is game. I'm all for that normally, i'm a major gamer as well. However, lately he won't help me do a single thing. He cusses at me if I am asking him if he's busy etc. For example, I just asked him if he was busy, and if he could help me. He kept sayin, "I'm in a damn game, bro." lol. The house is a wreck. I need help cleaning it all and maintaining it. Every time I pick it up, he's like a child and messes it up again. He won't even help me carry laundry into the laundry room. I have to make many trips because it's heavy and too much. Even if I ask to just help me carry it so I can go ahead and get it put in and washing rather than making a million trips, he ignores me and continues to play his games. What should I do about this? How can I get him to help me more? Like I said, i'm usually all for gaming because I am a major PC gamer myself, but there's times when you need to stop what you're doing and help out.

You are fast becoming his new mother. You need to just stop doing things for him. If he doesn't start acting and helping out within one week tell him you cannot live like this any more. If it persists for two weeks move out and explain that if he is not willing to pull his share of the work you cannot continue forward. Love makes us put up with too much sometimes.
What would happen if you had a child with him and these ways continue? While i do not advocate him completely giving up gaming (Everyone should be free to do what they like) i am an advocate for life skills. If he does not maintain or has never had life skills, the future will be bleak. He is fast becoming dependant on you in a bad way.1
