Today, my girlfriend dumped me because of a video game. Not that I was playing the game too much, but because she got addicted to it and decided that the game was more important than our relationship. FML
I agree, your life sucks 2 762
You deserved it 350

TheBigSneeze tells us more.

Hello! Op here. I logged on to make this FML but I guess it didnt go through... The game was FFXIV, and the sad thing was that we brought the game together so that we could play together. While she pretty much played it constantly, I only played it in quick sessions because I had other games to play and overall did not enjoy the game. The next thing I know, shes bringing her laptop to group events to play FFXIV, not joining us in board game nights or drinking, and investing all her time to FFXIV. She even ignored my request to spend time with her on Christmas and New years. When she finally got off the game (cause of server maintenance), she decided that was the perfect time to just break up with me. I wish I was joking, but, one of the reasons was that I was taking time away from her game because I wanted to hang out and spend time with her. The sad thing was I wouldn't of mind just being around her while she played FFXIV, and would of been contempt with being in the same room doing something else in her presence. We're still on friendly(?) terms I guess. She stopped playing it after about 3 months and now I run a Tabletop game that shes part of, but it still hurts to see her and there's this air of awkwardness and tension when shes around. I wrote this about 2-3 weeks after the breakup cause I didn't know what to do and needed to vent out my emotions somehow. Didnt expect to see it when I was browsing today

What's her gamer tag? Asking for me. **** a friend.

You could have formatted it, but that doesn’t seem to be your strong suit anyway.

I wrote this in a flurry of emotions, I was angry, I was sorrowful, I was embarrassed and ashamed. She was what kept my ambitions going, kept my passion from drying, gave me a reason to push through everything that hit me. I didn't care about formatting it, I just wanted to vent something out before I broke down in tears... It didn't work but it was an attempt.

You are an interesting character, OP.

If it's Fortnite, then you're better off anyway because your GF is an idiot.

* would have ! "Would of" does not exist.

Gubbon, I’m surprised you gave OP crap for “would of” but didn’t go after the fact that he used the word “contempt” instead of content.

happens to women all the time. boo freaking hoo

If this is what you do to girls, you are a pathetic man. You don't know what it feels like when someone chooses a game over you. To know that a game is more important than someone who loves and cherishes you unconditionally.

If this terrible formatting and grammar doesn’t end!! 😤
