Girlfriend thinks Video Games are Pointless
Posted 11/6/16
What should I do? My girlfriend doesn't want me to play video games at all, and wants me to quit it. I only spend like 2 hours at most per day on GTA 5 and Overwatch combined. On my phone, I mostly play Hearthstone.

Whenever she sees that I'm playing a game, she feels obligated to turn off my computer, and in many cases, take my phone away. I mean, wtf, bro. I've been dealing with this for about 2 months now. At first, it didn't seem much, but after awhile, it's pretty freakin' annoying. In my free time, I mostly workout, and I'd classify myself as a relatively casual gamer. I don't understand women sometimes.

So she's agressive, controlling and has flat out stolen your phone?

Yeah... gonna have to agree with Axizu here.

well, she keeps on telling me I should be doing better things in my free time such as cooking, building stuff like a "real man" should? It's pretty irritating when she WAS NOT like this until the honeymoon phase was over.

Well you said it yourself you don't play video games at a point where it's an issue. I'd say just break up with her you aren't doing anything wrong. Stealing your phone on the other hand is wrong.

I have no idea why somebody would do that. My best suggestion would be to leave her unless you can talk it out with her.

I've moved this to the Advice, Info, Recommendations forum.

"Freakin' annoying"? That's stepping all over personal boundaries controlling.

Seriously, if the issue is that she doesn't think you spend enough time with her, then maybe you need to deal with that and figure out what works so that you are both getting companionship needs met. But it's preposterous that you can't have any free time of your own in which you are free to choose your own activities.

If I were you I'd tell her to stop messing with my stuff, and if she refused, I'd dump her. You really do need to have a talk about boundaries with her.

It'll be pretty hard to keep a good relationship like this if she refuses to let you do what you want for fun and won't understand them especially when it's harmless.Those are just really hard things to tolerate especially when the things she expects from you is "objectively" better.

I've tried breaking up with her, but uhhh... She's a bit crazy. I don't know if I should try. I've talked about it to my roommates, and they seem pretty uneasy with her.

Would it be best if I broke up with her in public? In case, she pulled a weapon or worse, make false accusations? Me and her live on campus, but our dorms are about 10 minutes from each other in walking distance.

I think those are legimate issues to consider. Considering if she's a bit crazy and makes your room mates uneasy. I recall a classmate here got stabbed with a pencil by this girl I knew in the same class. It explains why we never saw her again.

I'm not one to say but I'd say if you had to break up. It should be a place where you feel at least safe.
Posted 11/6/16
Yeah I'd break up with her immediately

Yeah fuck that



I've heard too many stories from past friends about women controlling them. It reached the point where they couldn't even hang out with us anymore. You should definitely have a long discussion with her about boundaries and if she gives you lip then she obviously doesn't give a damn about your feelings.

Tell her to either respect your hobbies or you're done with her.

Relationships based on manipulation are always going to fail, she sounds like a very manipulative person who you wouldn't be happy with in the long run. I'm surprised you put up with her for two whole months.

NOBODY should mess with your hobbies to the point she's taking it.

Kill her

Guys, in all honesty, I'm just worried because she's a relatively popular girl on campus. A few weeks back, she threaten to ruin my reputation by spreading rumors I have STDs, or things of that nature if me and her were to split. Like, I really don't know what to do. If I stay with her, I lose my hobbies. If I leave her, I ruin my life relatively speaking.

Although, my roommate told me that I should record ALL conversations I have with her, and then have that as evidence. Do you guys think that would be enough if I had to show to the police?
