the only reason you should give up games because of her is if you see being with her for a very long time. if not, she has no right to change you at all


I would say if it's getting in the way of the relationship. If not, I see no legit reason for him to stop.


Whaddayamean "Getting in the way of the relationship"?
A pursuit, is not getting in the way of anything. Unless its something like alcoholism or drugs. Those have massive, far reaching & very debilitating side effects, that go waaaaay beyond just having substance fun.

If you're just playing games & avoiding lifes other chores, single or partnered. Then there are deeper issues that won't be addressed until YOU admit there is a problem.

The only thing that gets in the way of a relationship is *other people*. Thats dead set honest. Being personally secure counteracts that.
Otherwise nothing else should. Comments like "I want more space", "We need other things/people", or "I've changed".
Should be met with "Out the front door is more space than anyone knows what to do with", "You mean YOU do, go for it" & "Guess you're right, I'll help ya pack".
They are very selfish modes of affirmation & very dictatorial in nature. Men need to stop putting up with this crap. Stand up for yourself & your rights, be a man & be a *good* man about it.

The big question is, what's next to go?

Be very careful of what you allow anyone else to dictate about your life.

It's not right that anyone should tell you who to be as a person, especially a partner. OP, she is trying to change you to what she wants, ignoring who you are as a person.

Now the thing I would personally do is tell her that I'm not doing that. If she can't accept that then there is no future between us.

However, that's me. Is it down to you playing it too much? Would a compromise not be better? You play less and spend more time with her, but at the same time she accepts that you will still play games.

All this will do is end up making you resent her. Also, as another person said, what's next to go?

Stand your ground. Also, even if TC is trolling, then I can guarantee there are hundreds out there in that position. Take the advice given in this thread.

Anyone who makes you give up aspects of your life is a person that does not truly care about you, one thing I have learned via numerous relationships, failed marriages, etc, never let a partner dictate your life because the minute you do you have signed the death warrant for said relationship

& for our sisters that have contributed support alongside their gamer brothers. Its a hard call when everyones posting generalisations over your gender.
Its bravery worth saluting.

She doesn't have any right period dude. I don't care if they've already started plotting gravesites together.

Why do u let her decide your resolution? Be a man and decide your own.
U could tell her to meet u half way thou. Dont play as much as before and spend time with her, then she'll be happy.


then slowly go back to your old ways as soon as she gets comfortable again... LoL. thats what i do.
