I tend to play about 15 hours a day while at home, I have no job but I am looking though my countries is crap for them right now. Anyway my partner seems to feel threatened by the amount I play them, me and my partner don't live together but we spend half the week together. I don't ignore him while I'm at home, I multitask a lot since I have a low attention span, I can do 3/4 things at once, its purely the time I play on them and the fact its always the same style/genre/ect of game.
Anyway I take my handheld with me while we are together, the max I play a day if at all is 5/7 hours, he seems to take that personally but we rarely go out and thats what I'd rather do if I'm not at my place, and I don't mean spending money its an utter waste, I just mean going out walking or something. So the only other option is watching crappy repeats of stuff on the television that I'm barely interested in, and sitting there doing that frustrates me because I see no value in it, games help me be less stressed by comparison.
We argue about that stuff all the time but yet there is no solutions. Mainly I'd just like to know peoples opinions on the situation.
Just thought I'd say also, I don't want to get out and socalise, it stresses me and I find it a waste of time lol.

How can you be looking if you're playing 15 out of 24 hours? That's not looking very hard. I wouldn't be with a guy like that, so I understand why it frustrates him. 24 hours- say you sleep 6 hours, as many do instead of 8, that leaves 18 hours, 15 hours of that is taken up by games, that leaves 3 hours, say 1.5-2 hours on waking up, showering, brushing hair, eating during the day... how hard did you say you were looking for work again? If I were in your boyfriends situation, I'd probably feel a growing resentment and we'd probably argue a lot too.
Seriously, you're 25-29, you need to learn to do real life, go and work, clean the house, be able to talk to people etc...0
