Good News: There’s (Dating) Life Beyond Gaming!

Hello dear readers!

You know, I have always found it hard to relate to guys with some kind of addiction. – I’ve dated guys with a variety of them so I should know.  Guys who just can’t keep their noses off their beloved books, guys who so love RPG they almost forget everything else, guys whose passion for music excludes most everyone else, etc.  But I draw the line on guys addicted to drugs – that is just a dead end.  My latest brush with an addicted person is with a fanatic gamer – RPG and the lot!  While we managed to stay together for a while, gaming got in the way eventually.  I still think we could have made it if he had just made small adjustments.  I hope the tips in this post help gamers have a full dating life outside of their computer screens.

Non-gamers won’t understand the passion, excitement and adrenaline that goes through a gamer’s body. They all accuse gamers of having ‘no life’ that’s why they do nothing but just sit around all day and spend all of their free time pretending to be high profile car thieves or some knight in a make-believe world between earth and hell (or something like that).

And because of all the time and energy that gamers spend on their in front of computer screens, they don’t only miss out on their social lives but their presence is also sorely missed – on the dating scene.

But that’s not how it should be! Gamers should not have to choose between his game and his girl. He should balance both his real and his virtual life so he can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Dating Tips For A Gamer

Forget about being the gaming geek who can’t snag girls. Be the gaming geek who can win girls as good as he can win extra lives and powerups. Here are some essential and very helpful dating tips for gamer guys:

Meet someone online. No time to go out and meet girls? Meet girls while gaming! I am not a gamer myself but I know from my uber-gamer of a boyfriend that the most popular games these days allow you to meet and play with real people including women. So why not make the most of this opportunity? There’s always Facebook for some quality online RnR should you wish to talk and get to know each other better.

Create an awesome online profile. And since you’re trying to get to know women from the online gaming community, the best way for her to know you is through a real-person online profile. And, well, what better site to do that on than Facebook? Make sure you have a Facebook profile that lets women know the other things about you apart from your utmost dedication to your gaming life. And yes, that includes having a real photo of your face and significant posts and not just stuff about gaming.

See my previous post here.

Talk about other things too. Just because she appreciates your gaming prowess, or just because she games as much as you does not mean she’d like to talk about it 24/7 – especially if you’re on a date! So be well-rounded. Share the passion but be a holistically interesting person. Your love story should not end every time you beat her at the game.

Explore tons of stuff together. Comic con, gaming competition, gamers meet – go ahead and be each other’s date on these non-date requiring events. Who cares? This is what you both like so why not make the most out of it? But that should not end there. Apart from sharing your passion, you can always (and should) take her to some other things that interest you (and her) as well.

Look good and clean. I’ve heard from a little birdie that, erm, gamers kinda’ get a little too carried away with their games that they forget to shower and brush. No judgments and no generalizing, really, but if you’re that kind, I suggest you change – literally. And maybe it’s time to invest in a date wardrobe. *Wink*

Scouring Hollywood News For Relationship Lessons



Hello guys!  This is still Jeanette, this time posting a few relationship tips we can learn from watching Hollywood celebrity updates!

Many women, like me, enjoy watching TV programs which focus on the lives and relationships of Hollywood celebrities.  I like watching both the victories as well as the breakups, not because I am nosy; I really think we can learn from both the successes and failures of other people especially with regard to relationships, thus this post.

Watching TMZ and following the interesting and exaggerated and sensationalized world of the world’s elite and most popular people might not be everyone’s cup of tea – especially not amongst most men. But trust me, it has its benefits.

But first, here’s a lesson on how to approach a woman anywhere you meet her.

Relationship Lessons

In this article, let me break down some of the most valuable relationship lessons from some of Hollywood’s men (and maybe women) that you, Mister, can definitely learn from. So brace yourselves, watch your Hollywood counterparts succeed in their own relationships carefully followed around by the careful and scrutinizing lens of the paparazzi cams.  Here are a few tips we can take from the lives of our onscreen idols:

Drugs don’t do you or your relationship any good. So Charlie Sheen may still have kept his superstar status net-worth wise but drugs have certainly dragged him down leading to a nasty divorce and child-custody battle with the Denise Richards. So forget about even trying any type of illegal drugs, or you’ll end up with the nastiest wrinkles and the worst signs of premature ageing you’ll ever see.

Cheating is bad, very bad. I’m not sure who I should start with on cheating, but I guess Jude Law will do the job. Jude Law kind of had a cheating streak that made him quite infamous. His charm moved several notches down when he did it once, and even further when he did it again.  And that’s just Jude Law; let’s not even start discussing Tiger Woods. Darling, cheating is bad. It’s not something you should do with pros or the advice of pros. It’s something you should NEVER do with anyone at all.

Funny guys snag gorgeous girls. Funny guy Jason Sudeikis is hardly Sexiest Man of the Year material, but he is dating the gorgeous, stunning, and very, very beautiful Olivia Wilde. So start improving that humorous side of yours and put it to good use.

There’s more to a relationship than just good looks, because even the most handsome ones can fail in relationships too. Ryan Reynolds, aka the Green Lantern, was the Sexiest Man Alive of a few years ago, but that didn’t stop the failure of his marriage with equally attractive chick Scarlett Johansson.

A proper breakup is always called for. Liam Hemsworth would have done Miley Cyrus and himself a big favor if he just broke up with her properly and maybe even sooner. It just got more complicated when they took it much longer than they should have. You think he could be partially responsible for her rebellious twerking???

Great men keep great friendships for a very, very long time. Okay, so this may not technically count for a romantic relationship but hey, a friendship is a relationship too! Take Rob Scheider and Adam Sandler, or James Franco and Seth Rogen, and tons of other Hollywood man BFF’s. Keeping a great friend for a long, long time will tell girls that you do know a thing or two about commitment and loyalty.
