For many male gamers, the holy grail â€“ when it comes to relationships, at least â€“ is a gamer girl. wouldnâ€™t it be nice to have a significant other who understands, enjoys and can share in our hobby?
Well, yes â€“ it can be. Iâ€™m fortunate enough to have a ladyfriend who supports my gaming
habit hobby. Sheâ€™s what could be called a â€œcasual gamer,â€ but you should see her eyes gloss and an insane gaming demon take control of her when sheâ€™s playing Uncharted 2. Only problem is I think sheâ€™s developing a bit of a crush on Nathan Drake, the bastard. Dating a girl gamer does have its caveats, many of which are listed over at Gamerpaperâ€™s â€œ10 Reasons NOT to Date a Girl Gamerâ€
Itâ€™s a pretty funny, satirical look at the perils of dating a girl who games. Take a look, and see if you recognise any of that in your own partner.
