5 Perfect Reasons You Should Teach Your Girlfriend To Be A Gamer

So you’ve found the girl of your dreams – the one that’s perfect in almost every way! All except for one thing; she’s not a gamer. But before you give up and accept that she will never share your passion for shooting aliens and battling Pokémon, consider the following reasons why you should try your best to bring her into the world of gaming.

1. You combine the things you love

I assume you love your girlfriend, and being a guy, you probably love video games as well. So why keep the things you love in your life apart? Good things become so much greater when combined! Why should cuddling up with your loved one and blasting up bad guys not be compatible?
Playing video games and spending time with your girlfriend are awesome things on their own, but when combined, they become unbeatable!

2. It gives you a project together

Teaching someone to play video games is a lengthy process. Depending on their level of skill it may take weeks, or even months, before they are ready to fly on their own – all time you get to spend together, working toward the common goal of making her a pro gamer.
And nothing brings two people together better than a common goal. While the gaming itself will be a great experience, you will also find that bonding over it will bring your relationship to a whole new level.

3. You will never run out of things to do

Once your girlfriend has adapted to the world of video games, you will never find yourselves at a loss of what to do. Never again will you struggle to come up with plans for date night! Entertainment is just around the corner as you beat each other up in the game of your choosing.
Need something to do for Valentine’s? Video games! Forgot to make plans for your anniversary? Video games!

4. It gives you an easy way of settling disputes

How many times have you had a disagreement with your girlfriend, and just wanted a simple way to settle it? Arm wrestling usually doesn’t seem fair, and flipping a coin is just boring. Well, now you can just fight to the death over it! Simply fire up the game of your choosing and battle each other until a clear victor has emerged.

5. You will never have to choose between games and your girlfriend

As every gamer with a girlfriend will tell you, there will be a constant battle between gaming and spending time with your loved one. But once you’ve managed to get her hooked on gaming as well, you will never again have to choose between the two! Playing video games and hanging out with your girlfriend will become the same thing, and you’ll be free to enjoy the best of both worlds.

So if you find yourself with a non-gamer girlfriend, don’t just give up – teach her! Thought Catalog Logo Mark
