Hello everyone! ^-^
I'm in a pretty good mood right now.. So, i figured i would help those who are struggling to find their player 2 get that long awaited player 2.
Basically, a guide for gamers to find their match.
I make this guide because, well, it took me and many other people a long time to find the one they love. Games are often a turn off in a relationship, so finding your gamer guy or girl is a can do. Unless, you feel like giving up your massive levels in exchange for ms. supermodel.
So, what's the first step you can take in finding that elusive player 2?
Step 1: Don't do stupid things
Now, it's perfectly fine and even kinda cool to get goofy in a game. What i mean is things like:
- Picking or complaining about noobs
- showing little or no care for others (especially team mates in team games)
- Trying to be overly macho ( bursting through things, mass killing enemies, etc)
- Trying to be to shy (like letting others do the work when your just as capable, keeping out of occupied areas of the game map)
Now, you'll notice i mentioned things you would normally only do in a game. This is because that would be the best way. Your favorite multiplayer game is the best way to meet a girl/guy you will enjoy more.
This is because you need to enjoy at least one game with your possible player 2. Your bound to have at least a few games you and your possible partner will have differed opinions on. Which, leads directly into number 2.
Step 2: Cooperation game modes
So, you found your possible player 2. He/she agreed to being your partner. What next?
Well, even if he/she hasn't said yes to dating, arrange to play co op games with them. With co op games, you would get to spend time playing with your partner instead of against them. Creating more of a bond.
But, no matter how much you play one game... what about others?
Step 3: Play their games
Now, when it comes to games there are plenty to play with other people with. Some of those games you will not like or not be used to.
But, that can be a good thing. With me for instance, i hated playing roblox for a long time. But, when my girlfriend wanted to play some games on it, i agreed to do it with her. The result? I love it now!
Games you hate, games your not used to, even games you never heard of. By playing them with your partner, you might discover a game you love.
But, what about when they play a game you love they aren't used to? What then?
Step 4: Don't teach them excessively
Now, when someone you love spending time with starts playing a game you love, it can be exciting. You can't wait to show them the features of the game, and start playing with them.
However, that excitement usually leads to trying to overteach them. Now, it's one thing to help them with things they truly need help with. Like controls they aren't used to, weird mechanics, or even understanding the plot.
But, you don't want to tell them every little thing.
By over teaching, you cause them to lose interest. They end up thinking you as annoying and the game as stupid because of it.
One of the best parts of games is experimenting and figuring it out.
So, encourage them. Cheer them on a bit. But don't go for trying to overteach.
If you do all that, you should be pretty good.
But, what about conventions?
Step 5: Any problems? GET RID OF IT
Every relationship will have it's problems. But, you can help limit those problems by getting rid of stresses.
One big cause of stress and just it not working for a relationship is couple costumes. So, just get rid of it.
Any problem you can eliminate, get rid of.
Step 6: Don't fret wandering eyes
When your at a convention, a lot of people are in costume. Some of which, will be revealing costumes.
Guys and girls will have wandering eyes when any costume comes. Someone walks by as your favorite character, or with their breasts showing and everyones eyes will be attracted to those things.
Don't fret. Don't worry. Unless you partner has shown other signs, and i mean lots of other signs, then they won't be looking to cheat.
And that's it. Have fun, and have a nice day.
