For those with girlfriends/wives/kids: how do you find time for Halo?

#1EvalAngellPosted 11/12/2012 10:44:58 AM
I'm in a serious relationship and I love my girlfriend very much. We live together and she has no problem with me playing video games when she's home. She's a great girl and even makes fun of me when I die and/or asks questions about the game. Admittedly, I do feel a little guilty sometimes that I am neglecting her. I try to keep the Halo time to weekend mornings and before she gets home from work. Whenever I have some downtime to myself, I try to play. Gotta keep up with DAT RANK ya know?

When do you guys find time for Halo? Does your significant other get pissed at you for playing?

My girlfriend dragged me to the midnight launch and is already a SR34 while playing between a full time job and a trip to the cottage this weekend. My issue isn't finding time to play halo, it's finding time to do anything else.

I play whenever I get the chance, really. Not saying that in a negative fashion in which she leaves me no breathing room, I just mean it in the sense that I f***ing love the game and I wanna play it as much as possible. She doesn't have a problem with it. She knew I was a game freak when we first started hanging out, so if she just now started b****ing we'd have a problem. >_>

When they sleep and/or when they're doing a hobby they like (i.e. watching a TV series they enjoy)

My girlfriend accepts that I play video games. I was surprised when I found out she does too. She likes games like Fallout and Elder Scrolls. I know I played Halo a lot in the first 3 days. We only have one tv so I was hogging it. The fourth night after we got home from work she turned on Netflix and I just didnt play that night. She doesnt mind watching me, hell she played 6 games with me last night.. but if she wants to do something else, she lets me know, and that works pretty well :)
