  • Honestly (and somewhat harshly)
    Video gamers are OFTEN the stereotype.
    They lack motivation & people skills.
    It makes no sense why a female would want to be with a guy who would laze around the house on his ass playing video games instead of helping around the house, or going out with her somewhere and living life.

    Most gamers I know would rather sit at home playing some stupid quest game, accomplishing NOTHING, and then occasionally have you around for sex. This doesn't work. If you want a female to stick around, you need to become a human being, not a basement stump in your moms house, living online with other stumps like you.

    (Again... my opinion... may not be the same as others)

  • Yes, as long as he didn't become overly obsessed or put me Constantly on a back burner in playing these games, maybe in the end, "Playing games" with me because he would be finding lame excuses to stay home rather than be with me.
    Good luck. xx

  • Currently in a relationship with one. I'm fine with him being a gamer as long as he's ok with my being an otaku and into the Lolita fashion (I don't put the two together by the way it's not a fetish and is honestly a modest fashion) I got into the fashion through Visual Kei music because of Mana a famous Lolita even though he's a dude he rocks the style in such an epic way. Anyway I wouldn't mind being with a gamer seeing as I'm already with one. xD

  • I have been in a relationship with a gamer for 6 years and since became a bit of a gamer too. As long as gaming doesn't replace spending time with a gf and have a good balance then all is good.

  • I could've sworn 98% of the guys are gamers. I think we'd all have to say yes on this.

  • If he likes playing it a few time a week, no problem. But if he's playing it day and night, then obviously his game is more important than me. Plus, I'll think that he doesn't have a life besides his games.

  • The only reason why I wouldn't is because I easily get addicted to gaming. So we're probably be gaming 24/7 lol.. That's why I don't game anymore.. for years now.

  • not a problem a gamer myself but it would be a problem if he sits there with 30 cans of coca-cola vanila with skittles and chips playing cod or dota

    you gotta get out of the house once in a while and live reality, thats the best game there is

  • My boyfriend of 3.5 years is a gamer, and so am I, so I find gamers very attractive. To most girls, it shouldn't be a problem, regardless of whether they are a gamer too. But playing games with your significant other is such a fun thing to do, so maybe look for someone with similar interests to you in games, so you can enjoy gaming together.

  • Many people play video games. They're a form of entertainment. But you don't see an issue with defining yourself as a "gamer"? Because I'm going to go ahead and assume that you're asking this question because you're having some trouble finding a partner... I don't imagine someone would ask this question if they didn't, because they wouldn't care.

    Everyone has hobbies. I ride motorcycles, spend a decent amount of time at the gym each week, and yes I play video games too. But if you start to think of it as a lifestyle, then of course you're going to run into problems with people that either A) Can't get onboard and see it as a bit of an obsession/addiction (which may have some truth), or they B) Don't like coming second to a video game, like most people reasonably would.

    So that's really the important part to this question: is this similar to an addiction to you? Do you live to play video games and nothing else?
