Well itaEU(tm)s too late for me, but I wanted to share my story with someone out there about how this pernicious game has ruined my life.
For a while, everything was perfect. My girlfriend was the kindest, most caring person I had ever met, and we were in love. We shared so much in common it was often hard to believe I had met someone so perfect for me. I had never really believed in soul mates until I met my Jenny. We got engaged and I was certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that we were going to spend the rest of our lives together.
And then she started to play World of Warcraft.
Over the course of a year I watched in horror as everything I loved about her was erased by this **** game. She was drawn more and more into it this fantasy world. I tried countless attempts to agree a compromise on time spent playing, only for each promise to be broken only a day later. What I didnaEU(tm)t know through all this time was that she was getting closer and closer to another male player. There relationship started to spill over from the game into facebook, then text messages and phone calls. Three weeks ago she came clean about it and told me that she wanted to be with this person she has never actually met.
My life has been utterly destroyed by this game, self esteem shattered, and it seems that there is nothing left of my dear, sweet girl. She is now a person who lives in this fantasy world completely. She even has a boyfriend in there.
My thoughts are with everyone else struggling with this addiction. I only hope you have more luck than I did saving your loved one from itaEU(tm)s evil, vice-like grip.
