So I’ve been married for a little over a year now and I’ve run into some problems in regards to gaming. I love gaming. I’m the kind of person who could easily spend the day alone gaming, about every day. It’s how I grew up. It’s part of me.
My wife gave me the impression that she liked some games, however she’s been giving very mixed signals. Since we got married, I’ve gotten very little game time in. Most of which is me sneaking in time when she’s doing something else. The problem is, I feel bad gaming when I’m home because we want to spend time together. She never agrees to play with me, so if I want to play, I play alone.
Sometimes she says that she’s interested in some games but other days she says they are stupid and a waste of time. This makes it hard if I want to express the fact that I want to have more time to game.
I feel like it would be better if she was able to game with me, but that’s difficult to do. I at least want her to accept the fact that it’s something that I like doing and give me some time to do this. I just don’t know how to pitch the idea. Eventually I want to do a pc build, but that’s all part of the same pitch. I could never pitch that idea if she thinks games are stupid. How can I pitch the idea to maybe get her into gaming or at least respect the fact that I enjoy it and I miss doing it? Obviously everyone is different but I’m curious to see what people think.
