It's so nice that a group of people have just committed to being alone for the rest of their lives so they can focus on other things than relationships! Your founding member was Nickola Tesla. Oh, is that not what forever alone means? Because every time I hear it I just assume the person isn't interested in a relationship and move on to someone more optimistic.
now see the reason we are "married and alone" is because if crap like this! We allow them to ignore us and then think, "oh at least we got a few minutes of attention" . . .thats crap! OP you shouldn't have waited around all weekend for him to make a move, its not 1916, you can plan and make your own move. You, lalaaa520 and, yes even me, have to speak up and let our significant others know we want/need more! Appreciate what they have done but respectfully ask for more. Our relationships, we are worth it!
I can see how you could be dissatisfied, but you should enjoy the presence of your husband, not the gifts he gives you on a corporate controlled holiday.
So she should enjoy him sitting on his ass playing PS4 instead of making a romantic dinner together, watching a movie, or even asking if she wanted to play WITH him? Sure the gifts don't really matter but there's still activities to do together. He just played alone doing as he pleased which is inexcusable.
That's inexcusable. You need to have a serious talk with him. You don't spend an entire day dedicated to love in front of the PS4 then make up for it with a 5 dollars box of chocolates.
Eh. Valentine's is a silly day perpetuated by retailers. Now I'm not defending him...but I totally understand. Because BO3 had double XP and double weapon XP all weekend (in MP AND zombies) and...still does until Tuesday...how could any gamer resist? Maybe he thinks the replacer is actually going to take his wife out.
Easy. You have until Tuesday. 4-5 hours of your Sunday won't cost you but maybe 3-4 levels. Big whoop. All I'm saying is all the time he wasted playing alone he could have taken a few hours to spend with her. Go to dinner, do the nasty, take a moonlight walk (if it's warm enough where they live), watch a movie, go adopt a puppy. It doesn't matter. Valentine's Day is a day to acknowledge the people whom you love. If this was a Christmas FML where he'd rather play games instead of exchange gifts would you still feel the same way of it being a retail perpetuated holiday? It's kind of the same thing.
It was a joke... Christmas would be roughly the same, yeah. Retail perpetuated spending money you don't have in most cases. I'm all for spending time with people. And really if you have a significant other spending money on them, sure why not, makes them feel special. I was just saying I understand this guy. He seems out of touch with a lot of things. And finally haha. No. 5 hours, 3-4 levels? More like 30-40 with double XP. Still shouldn't come before your spouse, but I thought people would see the joke.
I've read a lot of FMLs like this where the "husband" is too busy playing video games. As far as I am concerned those guys a just kids, not adults and they shouldn't have gotten married until they can get their priorities straight, at least that's my humble opinion.
You're absolutely right that some people need to grow up before they get married. But gaming is only a problem when the partner doesn't share the same interests :D My husband and I both play games. It's our way of unwinding during the weekend. If I want to do something else I just let him know, and he does the same for me.
