I'm writing because I am **** near at my wits end with my boyfriend's gaming addiction. I am feeling very neglected due to the computer taking nearly all of my boyfriend's spare time. He has told me that he'd like to take a break from gaming, but instead he's just gotten even more hooked. I have brought to his attention that I am feeling hurt and neglected and at one point he said,"you're right, you deserve more attention " but now it is,"nothing will ever make you happy ".
We've been together about 2.5 years, have lived together for 2 of those years and have a cat together. We have discussed marriage and kids and I've said that the gaming concerns me because I feel as though when we have kids he'll choose games over them. I'm 26 and he's 29 and sometimes I feel like an old married couple and it makes me sad,we hardly ever have sex,and that isn't my choice.
Now, I'll admit. I suffer anxiety and depression and at times do not express my emotions appropriately, but I am in the process of seeking help to manage my symptoms. But, I came to him with my concerns in a level headed, calm manner recently and he just turned everything around on me. I'm never happy, I'm crazy, I need help, etc. I'm just sick of constantly going to bed alone and being ignored because his online buddies and more important. We have both said we need a hobby together, as we mostly just watch TV. Just this past weekend I tried to get him to play a board game with me and he shot me down. I'm just so frustrated and confused.
