10 Things You Should Know About Dating A Gamer

WC: Following on from our hugely successful article, 10 Things You Should Know About Dating a Cinephile, we’ve decided to examine those things you should probably know when seeking out a guy or gal who you suspect from their Zelda T-shirts and weekend cosplaying just might be a bit of a gamer.

Gamers, whether casual or hardcore, can present an interesting challenge in relationships, and though the pictures in this article might suggest otherwise, it is a problem that goes both ways as far as gender is concerned (there are only so many pictures online of women playing games, alright?).

Gamers can be a handful; they can be sweet and loyal (the stereotype is that they’ll be too busy gaming to be out at bars trying to cheat on you), but the nature of their habit can make them a cautionary prospect for many would-be suitors. Right from that first date, here are 10 things to keep in mind about dating a gamer. (Culture)
