Ten Reasons Why You Should Not Date a Girl Gamer

From the PlanetXbox360.com feature article:

"There was recently an article written about why it's a good thing to date or marry a girl who plays video games, being the chauvinistic pig that I am I thought it only fair to write an article listing the top 10 reasons it would be a negative thing to date a girl gamer (this is a parody). These choices are purely for entertainment purposes and have no bearing on the actual way I (or the staff at PlanetXbox360.com) feel about women in general (our editor-in-chief is married for example). For one thing it's really unique when a girl is actually passionate about video games, so I won't take any credit away from those females; however dating/marrying one is a different story completely. This is also a semi-response to an article posted by some fellow gaming journalists of mine, that just happen to be females, over at GamingAngels.com - Ten Reasons Why you Should Date a Girl Gamer. Below are the top 10 reasons why just such a decision could end up being a nightmare and/or the biggest mistake you have ever made."

I'm a girl gamer but I can understand some of the points and where the guys are coming from, funny list for sure!

I don't know I personally think ALOT of the list is BS.

The having to share thing being the biggest. If they are a girl gamer then they will have their OWN console and their OWN games and you will share very rarely. Because they will play on their console and you will play on yours.

This also gets rid of the split screen thing as you would just play online with the two different consoles.

There are also things wrong with the other things on the list but I don't feel like getting into it really.

This.

This list has nothing to do with reality, and it's just a lame attempt to get hits.

I always have to laugh at the totally random pictures they put on this kind of articles too. A girl screaming with her face 3 inches from a screen, while playing a racing game with a JOYSTICK? Please...

#1 - I don't want to share my gaming consoles/PC or my games.

Being married to a non-gamer is great since I know it's always mine and she'll happily do something else while I'm gaming.

***The having to share thing being the biggest. If they are a girl gamer then they will have their OWN console and their OWN games and you will share very rarely. ***

As an adult, dating oftentimes leads to marriage. Even prior to marriage many people move in together. There's absolutely no reason to waste money on multiple consoles/games/peripherals. So, yeah, sharing is a big thing, but only to those of us who have/are looking for long-term relationships.

Not exactly a great parody but a few of the points almost made me laugh.

In a relationship, I want a girl with diverse interests along rare common ones. That's what keeps a relationship fresh. If the couples shares too many interests, it's only a matter of time until they grow tired and poof! Divorce/breakup.

...but if the sex life is good, then my opinion is void.
