What could be more romantic then spending the day shooting, killing, and blowing people up (virtually of course) with your significant other? I don’t know about you but it sounds like a good time to me. To most girls this would not be the ideal date.
Now as is said before in a previous post, Xbox Live is not a dating service. Sure there are some cases were people have actually gotten married to someone they met on Xbox Live but its not the case for everyone.
Not all gamer guys are fat, gross nerds that never take there eyes away from the screen. Many are normal boys and men that just play for fun with their friends. My advice to the girlfriends of these guys…get interested. It will make your relationship better. It can get pretty boring when he is playing and having a good time and you are sitting there pissed off that he is not paying attention to you. You don’t have to go out and buy a system but at least start out by watching him play. Ask him questions or try out a split screen game and play with him. You might be surprised how much fun you will have.
I love teaming up with my boyfriend and playing a good round of Halo 3 or Gears of War. Rockband is another good one for girls who arn’t interesting in shooter games. There are plenty of games out there for two players. Find one you both like and have a good time.
To the guys out there, female gamers are out there and our numbers are growing. Learn to play with them and respect them. Keep your tongue in your mouth and don’t drool all over the controller, we’ll just give you a good headshot.
