i live in PA, have a small son and am living with a game addict. i have also had the same "cash shop" problem as you where she spends money from our joint bank account on the game and its causing us to fall more and more behind each week. i fear we will be out of a place to live by the end of december and she is doing nothing to curb this addiction and help out with this problem. if we were to be kicked out she could go live with her family responsibility free and i would have no where to go. im actually afraid to say that to her for fear she will realize that it would mean she could game all day, without me nagging her to do real life things, her mother and sister would take care of our kid , and she could play her game **** near interuption free at all times. i also fear she started some kinda "affair" on that game by some of the things i have heard her say into her headset ( yes, i have stood outside the door and listened). she sets a timer when she isnt playing so she knows when to get back on and "harvest" her stuff, or waiting for a specific monster to reappear or "respawn" as she calls it. i fear that she may be using this times to know when her friend gets back on the game. i sis accually ask about the times and she denied it of course. but after saying that to her she has become way protective of her cellphone. like never leaving out. even leaving the room she has her game in to come out , get her phone, put it in her pocket, and walk right back in to her game. once i heard the phone buzzing on vibrate as i was leaving the bedroom to shower at 5am. when i got out of the shower she was awake and on the game. so now i guess im also fearing that she has given her phone number to this person im assuming to be male. have any of you had any thoughts that your boyfriend/girlfriend/wife might be flirting or having an affair inside of the game? your stories would be greatly appreciated
