Hey there, randomly came across this forum in search for some advice. My fiance is SEVERELY addicted to the game Destiny 2. He plays for 11 to 12 hours A DAY, and I'm starting to feel like a third wheel of sorts. He's a super sweet guy, and I love him to death, but what do I do when I feel like he prioritizes a game over our relationship ? I don't want to leave him, because like stated before, he's the sweetest person I have ever been with. The only issue is his game. And I want us both to work it out.
He has group chats with his clan all the time, which I only despise because they make him play even longer. Plus, they always laugh and chat together, and now its like I never see him that happy with me. It makes me feel like maybe I'm the problem. Am I over reacting? Am I too clingy ? All that goes through my head are questions asking me if I'M the problem, and not him. But I can see that there are others on here going through the same thing, and I really want advice.
Another note, I'm the only one who works. I work a minimum wage job, trying to support the both of us. It was okay, because he was attending college, and I didnt want a job added to that to stress him out. But he, since-recently, dropped out, and is now playing this game excessively. We are actually having to move into his dads house because, with my pay alone, we can no longer afford to live in our apartment.
I've been extremely stressed out over this, and feel like I'm a ghost in my own home. Like I never exist to him anymore. Please, if anyone has any advice on how to at least get him to moderate his time gaming, I'd love to hear it.
