Has anybody dated a gamer?

I am a non gamer and I have this guy who plays pokemon that likes me. Can anyone share their experiences with dating a gamer.

Thanks!

  • Pokemon? Like on his phone? Please don't call him a gamer unless he plays games that are not meant for passing time on a phone. He'd be a gamer if he play games for a proper gaming experience.

    I hope I didn't offend anyone. I just feel like there's a huge difference between games meant to give you an experience and games that are just... time killers. 😅

  • Simply put, relationships take time, and so can gaming. If you like him back, you can give it a shot, but try to set a boundary to have enough together time with him to avoid him losing himself (and ultimately you) in his games. Games are great addictives, which is why many people are either full-time gamers or hardly gamers at all.
    That being said, there are tons of games you can play multiplayer and he's probably very enthusiastic about his games, so you can try to find a game you both like that you can play together. I did this with my last girlfriend, and it really helped connect us. (We split because we were simply incompatible, but I think we lasted for half a year because of games.)
    Bottom line, it can both connect and divide you, and the trick is to find a common ground in gaming if there is one, or to have him abstain from gaming enough to save the relationship.

  • It's AWESOME cause i play as well, i rather be with a guy that is all about God, family, me, work & plays video games then being with a guy that club & be on social media 24/7 & drink & smoke a lot & is also a cheater , as long as he have time for me & cut off the game when i wanna have a conversation or go out then it is not a problem, You should try & get involved into video games as well like a ps4 or xbox, nintendo switch & when you out at a doctors appointment or something have some games downloaded on your phone in case it's a lot of people & your getting bored 😏.

  • Depends on why he likes the games, honestly. Like first of all, when ever you date somebody that is really passionate about something you gonna spend less time as a couple, for me thats great because i got my own passion so i love having all that free time.

    Second thing about gaming. My boyfriend loooooves League of Legends, he even took me to some Championship game couple years ago, i dunno anything about the game really, but that was still fun though. So him beeing a gamer doesn't mean that he stays at home all time or sth like this. He just goes to conventions that you have no clue about maybe :D

  • We are mostly normal. Some of us use it as a tool for procrastination. Some of us play for fun and some use it because they have a shitload of free time with nothing better to do. Well, I'm the 3rd one so yeah. Most of us will play less when we have other things to do. Its like watching TV or reading books its not different, we just choose to play instead of reading or watching TV...

  • If he just plays the one game, that doesn't really qualify him at a gamer.
    Gamers have passion for the games they play, sometimes bordering on addiction. And if it's a phone game it really doesn't count at all.

  • Haven't had the luck but i would love to since i am a gamer myself.
    If you where to date me expect me wanting to spend some time at the computer after work and just do my thing alone, after that i am all yours.

  • As a non gamer you will get bored, and feel frustrated. He will spend most of his waking hours playing games, and you will feel ignored. If you were a gamer, then you would probably be alright with that.

  • I am a gamer, and pokemon is one of my faves. Gamers are just like everyone else, we just enjoy living in other worlds while in this one. If you find him to be a nice guy and interesting, just ask him what his favorite games are. Ask about hobbies. Gamers can be fun interesting people, some are shy, others are outspoken. Since he likes you he will already want to talk, he will ask you about lots and probably relate it to games.

    Bc just with pokemon, you're just a guy with a smartphone...

    I was a hardcoregamer, means I played 18 hours daily (with an mothly income direct from playing)... thats a gamer...

  • My closer friend likes to game, and his girlfriend didn't do so till she started dating him.

    What she did is playing games that she likes. For example she likes misteri puzzle games, and platform games.

    • I also like to game, but only with other people. For me it would be perfect if someone was with me solving puzzle or point and click games, or playing some horror games. Those are perfect to play with someone else.

  • Yes and i am one, experiences were fun and varied interests where we had a mutual shared interest and but also our own separate ones also

    Dont call his games "kids toys" or anything like that, to him they are a fun hobbie or a good distraction from stress.

  • Pokemon? That's not a gamer. That's just a dude with an app 🤷.
    If it's just one game he will grow tired of it, at least I hope.

    • you're an elitist bitch. That's literally the same as getting made because you don't consider people of certain races to be people.

      you: "Pokemon isn't a fighter so it's not a game"
      "me: it is a game, just a different one"
      you: "NO ACCEPT MY OPINION YOU"RE IGNORANT."

  • There's a lot of ignorant stupid people alright. There's way more Pokemon games than just Pokemon go. There's even tournaments for the ds games, so I don't know what people are talking about.

    by the way there's plenty of games on the phone that's not just quick and casual. In fact I'm pretty sure mobile gaming will soon completely kill all handheld gaming devices.

    Anyways just try to show some interest if you like him. You don't have to be a hardcore gamer, in fact with people attending college and working I'd say most people around your age are casual gamers anyways.

    If he doesn't have a job and is gaming all the time that's when I would be concerned.

  • I used to. There were no problems at all! It was cute when we played together and he used to teach me what he knew. It turned me on that he was so passionate about it. Call me crazy but I found it to be a very romantic relationship.

    When he was proud of me for doing something good, he would make out with me and it would get really passionate.

    Date a gamer! 😂❤

  • Games are really fun! My boyfriend and I play them together fairly often. We are both pokemon fans as well. For your boyfriend its a hobby and you really dont need to worry unless he uses it to avoid life and ignore you. There are games out there to suit almost anyone taste, I'm sure he would appreciate you taking an intrest, but at the very least would just want you understand something he likes to do.

  • Almost every one of my boyfriends so far was a gamer, and since I'm one myself there weren't any problems at all.
    I won't really call someone who only plays pokemon a gamer though xD Its like calling someone a reader just because he read the Harry Potter books once.

  • If all he plays is Pokémon he's not a gamer.

    However, I've dated a gamer and it's no different than dating someone who isn't a gamer... and if they really like you they'll either pause their game, or unplug from like playing with people online so they can talk to you.

  • My boyfriend is a super gamer, he's playing WoW as I speak, I initially didn't know he was one, but I got used to it pretty quickly. It's actually pretty funny to watch him get super excited for new releases and such for games. I'm not a gamer like him but I still find it good to actually ask about games he likes and try them out for myself so we're on common ground. The only con about being with a gamer is that sometimes they put their games first and it can get lonely, but as long as you communicate with them, it'll help balance it out
