Difference Between Gamer and Non-Gamer Girls... According to a Typical Guy

Difference Between Gamer and Non-Gamer Girls…

by Steve Napierski to Comics

Maybe with some geeks, a female that is into video games becomes even more appealing, but for most guys it’s just part of who you are. And if you want to date someone solely because they’re into the same things as you are, you might want to think again.

The reality is that if you’re using a mutual like in video games, or anything for that matter, as the foundation for any relationship it’s doomed to fail. Sure, maybe that commonality is how you get to know each other in the first place, but it cannot be the glue that holds you two together. If it is, what happens if one of your likes changes? Then what do you have? Nothing.

As a gamer guy married to a non-gamer girl, who has seen both of our interests change over the past 16 years, trust me I know what I’m talking about. You share common interests with your friends. You share your life with your partner.

And now a bonus panel, since jnite enjoys them so much.

    In the first panel the girl could be a total butterface. Sherry Jenix in the FGC proves this.

    “I’m about to spontaneously combust”
    “You’re going to be really hot…”

    That was your lame joke for today. Please hold your rotten fruit.

    If she said “I hate video games and whoever plays them” that would be a turn-off, though.

    But having a girl friend that is into video games means that you can include gaming time in the Girlfriend Time quota, thus maximising your gaming time.

      That’s a plus for me whenever I find a guy that I like AND who shares similar tastes in gaming with me. If total bonding/hanging out time is 7 hours out of the week, and I spend 5 of them playing video games with my bf, that’s not a waste for me. 2 birds with one stone.
