how can I help my boyfriend? he is addicted to WoW.
I left previous boyfriend for this one, moved in and after 10 months I dont know where its at. He got WoW last December (9 months ago)and has played it since.
problems are: I can count on 2 hands the number of nights he has come to bed with me when I go.
There have been times i have got up to go to work and have seen that he came to bed 1/2 hour before i got up
He is self-employed and has various contracts - he has lost a lot of them for not doing the job/visiting each site often enough - because he has been playing the game
I think he is depressed - he finds it hard to go out to work, to mix with people, to do stuff at weekends etc. I think its what the game has done to him
I dont know how many heartbreaking hours Ive spent lying in bed feeling lonely, or watching TV feeling lonely, or eating a meal on my own feeling lonely while he has his meal on his lap while playing the game
When he talks to me, its usually about the game, how well he did on a riad or in an instance, or how annoyed he is about something in the game. You can feel the passion when he talks, but only when its about the game.
We dont go out, we dont do much, and I love doing stuff, fishing, going to art galleries, visiting new places etc, sports etc.
He always says we will do stuff, but when the time comes it gets forgotten about cos of the game
I work hard and at the moment im working 60 hours a week to get my job done and then I come home in the evening, to open the curtains as theyve been shut all day, I make the evening meal, I wash up etc. yesterday I gave him one job to do if he wasnt gonna do some work, and that was to hang out the washing.. it was still in the basket when i got home in the evening.
He gets up about 8am, plays the game, grabs some toast for lunch, and will be on the PC when I get home, someitmes he will spend a couple of hours with me in the evening, but then he plays the game again. I think he is on the game for average 12+ hours a day (every day). I just found out to check how much hours he has played, so gonna check tonight.
Im so fed up with all this. he promised me the world, and I left everything for him... to get this...
someone help me, im getting depressed about it now and dont know what to do
