Not everyone can handle the pressure of being a gamers significant other (or SO). The pressure stems from knowing full well that you will be taking a backseat to every game that has ever kept them company though out their entire careers as amateur gamers, most of which started when they were six or seven years old. When youre up against Kirby, Mario, Sonic, Pacman, Samus, or Link, a relationship can seem pretty daunting. No one wants to forget who they were before getting into a relationship. Relationships are meant to bring two people together, not turn them into each other. Gamers know this better than any other type of boy/girlfriend. They dont care if you want to go to the beach when Mortal Kombat gets released for PS4. They dont care if you want to watch a movie marathon when theyre four hours deep into a Call Of Duty marathon with friends. Theyll help you excel at any videogame you might want to pick up, theyre usually great for computer malfunctions, and if youre looking for company during an all-night cram session, you can bet theyll be right next to you, clicking away. They are who they are and you love them for that. With the good, comes the bad, though. Heres a list of twenty problems that you might run into when dating a gamer.
