Really the only thing of mine that she doesn't get is football. She doesn't even like the sound of it on the tv and I want to watch it all Sunday.
p.s. Go Broncos!
Your wife isn't alone, i'm a guy and I do not for the life of me get football or any major sports really(could not care less about the Super Bowl if I tried), they just bore me to death.
I don't have a significant other yet, but all the women I have dated were pretty good gamers.
Other chicks I've dated usually have been decent sports about my gaming at worst,or been outright gamers themselves. Very glad nothing's changed with this one.
The wife doesn't mind me playing because it keeps me quiet (and at home) while she does her thing. At least she doesn't mind me having friends over to play (not so quiet).
In my fourth month of marriage, I seem to be onto something here.
I have a gamecube and she has a general disdain for it, but it's "allowed" (lol....joking...eh...kind of) so long as it doesn't interfere with family stuff, which I'm very respectful of anyway. I usually only play when I'm home by myself, which isn't often. I did recently buy 1080 snowboarding and told her that id like her to try it with me, but we'll see....so far it's no go.
I have other hobbies, which she is supportive of, and if I has to choose, I love just hanging out with her 100x more than getting through a temple in Ocarina of Time (though that is also sweet).
Parents never played, but me and my brothers did. Too bad the FPS party games (Goldeneye, Halo) came out after I moved out the house. But when we did get together and play those later, man was it fun.
Still undecided on how I will let me kids play games.
Whoa, so by "wife" you meant "mother," right?
Which fine establishment did you patronize? I hope it was worth it.
