A German gamer spiked his girlfriend's drink with Rohypnol so she wouldn't interrupt his gaming session. He was found guilty of assault and fined €500.
Or, you know... You could find someone that actually accepts your gaming habits. Someone that you have things in common with? Man, some people are pathetic. If you don't like your girl getting in the way of your gaming, I don't know... Maybe she's not the girl you want to be dating? Just a crazy idea.
"Or, you know... You could find someone that actually accepts your gaming habits" Finding a unicorn is easier said than done.
So your saying that if you cant find someone who can deal with your habits might as well force them to right? Trying to find someone who will deal with your hobby's is a lot better then trying to force someone to accept them.
You are exaggerating. Girls like what OP described aren't that hard to find.
I guess I found a unicorn xD wasn't that hard lol
Nope. At the very most, you'll have to, you know, compromise a little.
@nidhogg It's sheer luck if you find ANY girl who is into gaming as much as you. In general, they take little interest in it. I look around my office, in the IT technical section I see about 80 blokes and 3 women. That isn't sexist before anyone wades in on an SJW horse, that's how it is.
Both my ex and my current girlfriend are/were cool with my gaming. So was my ex fiancee, and, well pretty much every girl I've dated, now that I think about it. Wasn't that hard.
@caseh First off, she doesn't have to be into gaming. Secondly, she just has to be accepting of your hobby and the time you put into it. Last but not least, you have to be considerate to your spouse as well.
I think at some point, you have to accept that if you're going to be spending so much time gaming that people start resenting you, then you might not be relationship material to begin with. Even "gamer" girlfriends (and boyfriends, for that matter) are going to get fed up with the neglect, because what's the goddamn point of being in a relationship if you're not going to spend any time with the person? The actual problem is that a lot of people's definition of "gaming" these days is upwards of 40 hours a week playing (or a full time job, in other words). It might be time to just devote your life to gaming at that point.
Dude my wife accepts my gaming, she simply insists that I do my manly duty before I sit my @$$ down for a session. I'ts called compromise.
@spotie U have so many ex, even an ex fiance. Are u sure your gaming habit is not the reason for that?
this dude drugged his gf to play games... I think he's broken the "habit/hobby" threshold and ventured into addiction/ psychotic/sociopath..You'r e not gonna find any woman to be okay with that, unless she's also not right in the head. its sad that i'm not even really shocked.I've become desensitized to peoples stupidity.
My Wife knew I was a gamer when we dated and married, she heard me talk about games and systems and when I moved in with her, I got her old roomates room as my Man Cave to setup PC's and my Consoles. She buys me games as gifts and our Son now plays some of my older consoles as well. Only time she complains about it is when I have the volume too loud.
Finding a very attractive gaming wife is not that difficult. I'm an average looking dude with a decent job (teacher). She is pretty damned attractive and plays 50 hours of games a week and has no problem if I play every single night. We've been happily married for 10 years and have a super cool and smart daughter who is also a mega gamer. The guy in this story is BEYOND pathetic. He is a heartless, ignorant criminal that gives gamers and all men a bad rap. This dude needs to GTFO.
@ badz149 Hahaha
@badz Ahahaa! Genuinely cracked up there and its almost 3am. Its all about compromise but trust me, I almost feel for the guy lol. What he did was absolutely wrong but that headline cracked me up.
If you want a girl that's into gaming, and you can't find one, you may just be hanging out in the wrong places. Talking about gaming isn't a common thing in most social settings, so best to go to things that are gaming related, and you will likely find one. Or there's the internet and what not. In any case, you don't really need a gamer girl, just one that respects your space and gives it to you from time to time. Most women would also like their own space, and probably do things you have no interest in, but we still don't care if they do it, and occasionally do it with them. If someone would prefer to play a game, than form a solid relationship, then it's time to reevaluate their priorities. If they're with someone who won't let them do anything they want to do, then it's just time to find someone else, because it's not going to end well either way.
Then again, if I ever found a girl who was cool with being drugged so I could game, that alone would be cause to drop most of the gaming to spend time with her. I mean, serious catch, much?
True! This is just so sad and pathetic in all levels. endangering the health and safety of the person you love just to give you freedom to do your hobbies? WHAT A PSYCHO!
Or you know, he could just stop playing and spend time with her.... "She had just arrived home from a long shift at work" Meaning he had all day to play, if he can't stop playing a game to spend some time with her and help her ease down after a long day then she should find someone who cares. Maybe she does except his gaming habits (or did, but after this innocent she is probably going to stay away from someone who games) but as the article says she just got off a long shift. I know when my girl does she certainly doesn't want to come home and watch me beat up a bunch of criminals in Batman. So I'll turn it off cook her some dinner and let her pick out a movie or show to watch. It's really not that hard to balance relationships and games.
I did the same thing as you described, summons. However, when I asked her what move she wanted to watch, she said and I quote, "one of those is OK, I guess". When I was about to put a movie in our Xbox One, I said or we could play Final Fantasy X/X-2 on the PS4, which she had played the night before. She smiled and didn't say anything but sat straight up with her hand out, waiting for mentor give her the controller. I fell asleep 2 hours later and now I'm about to make her some breakfast in bed. Sidenote: I had lost a bet that Julie Bowen was the love interest in Happy Gilmore. We were watching the movie and I said "that's not Claire Dunphy" when she told me it was. So, now I'm making her breakfast in bed.
I think the bigger issue is that he drugged his GF. What sort of sociopath does that? Did it occur to any of you that maybe he has a problem if he's playing video games to such an extent that he feels the need to incapacitate those who interfere with his "fix"? That people are glossing over or ignoring what he's done and saying crap like "maybe she's not the one for him...", is reprehensible. Examine your priorities. Seriously. I like video games. Heck I get antsy when I don't play FFXIV for a day or two, but I'm not so bloody detached from reality that I would drug my significant other so that I can keep gaming. Good grief.
@bicfitness He's probably a preadator, I mean who else uses that drug, why would a person have that drug in the 1st place? Excluding people that have it perscribed to them.
Lol exactly, and if someone really does love you, they will put up with a lot of your crap.
What's funny is the best relationships are the ones where people let their partner do all the stupid stuff they enjoy...so long as it doesn't interfere with life and stuff.
I actually have a girl that is a friend (hope to be more someday) that plays games with me for 4-6 hours at a time, 3-4 times a week. Met her at college. You'd be surprised how many college girls game.
Or, you know.... You could dump her?
This is so pathetic.
Thats horrible. :(
What the hell? Due to this ****bag's action watch how all gamers are generalised as being indecent and what not.
This guy is a total looser. Its prolly not his 1st time of doing that, such a horrible excuse for a human being
Not sure why you got disagrees. Someone doesn't just have rohypnol on hand for no reason. This guy's a dirtbag.
Because he spelled it "looser". lol
Not just a looser but pathetic one also.
lol. The stupidity meter has just exploded
So what. People have been killed over video games for less. This isn't a big deal.
HahahahHaha!!!! Sorry coudn't resist.. :D Pathetic though :&
It's not even funny. Doing something like that, it could get people kill.
I just giv her some good D... That puts her to sleep ;).. *on topic this guy is stupid
That wasnt a gamer. That was an idiot
lmao what an idiot.
No game is that important to drug someone over. You don't deserve a woman if you put games over them 1st.
Can sympathize to a degree, I'd be pretty salty too if I had to turn my game off for Coronation Street. Still he's both very stupid and very lucky. Article says the lady drove to work the next day, that was a potentially fatal accident waiting to happen.
This guy sounds like a real winner. The rapist wanna be should have gotten jail time for this.
This is why some people remain alone forever.
That is quite disturbing!
And that's the only reason he has roofies? Right......
It's not illegal everywhere. In the UK it's used as a muscle relaxant and sleep aid, although it's not a common prescription. Not saying your assumption is wrong, but know that it does have medical uses that go beyond sexual assault...or getting some game time in.
Oh god. Wait until Fox News hears this.
" Even "gamer" girlfriends (and boyfriends, for that matter) are going to get fed up with the neglect, because what's the goddamn point of being in a relationship if you're not going to spend any time with the person? " JENKINS!!! My hat and coat! This stout fellow has things well in hand. I'm retiring early this evening.
I think it has less to do with the fact that his hobby was gaming and more to do with the fact that his and her perception of their relationship and the compromises they are willing to make with one another are not conducive to a healthy situation.
Wow pretty lame. In fact he's lucky she didn't die. People do sometimes from that drug. He literally could of murdered her for his gaming habit. Dude has a problem. In fact, many problems.
When my old lady pesters me, I take the roofies myself. lol
Cosby gamer... SMH
Sounds like a healthy relationship.
Well, this sure is a disgusting story. Really shows how much you love your girlfriend.
Sleep betch, I'm raiding!
