Hi, I've been looking for a place to turn for advice and this seems like a good place to start. Let me start by saying that I'm 24, my boyfriend is 27 and we've been together a little over a year. We moved in together April of last year, and things have been pretty good but the biggest issue between us is his extreme amount of daily video game play.
I knew that he was an avid gamer when we got together but I didn't know how bad it was until we moved in together. The first thing he does most mornings that he doesn't have to be at work early is play a game of whatever computer game he's into that day, then when he gets home he plays until typically 2 or 3 AM. Today we got into a horrible argument because I asked him to bring me food at work and he said that he would but then he wanted to play video games all night.
I tried to explain to him that it bothered me that it seemed that he was offering to do something nice for me just so that I'll leave him alone all night. He basically got very defensive, said I can't accept him for who he is and never let him do what he wants, which isn't true. I don't want to leave him but I'm scared that this will just get worse as life goes on.
I feel very neglected sometimes,and that's what I want him to see. It's like he'll spend one night with me then hang it over my head to play video games sometimes? I don't know, it's very frustrating. He has been getting mean lately when I suggest he spend a little bit of time off of the computer, too.
