You and you’re partner are both incredibly busy most days of the week, juggling work ties, family life and everything else. You hardly get to say 3 words to each other without some distraction getting in the way. When you do get a free moment you can’t wait to spend some quality time with your partner, but all he is interested in is playing his Xbox! So you end up sitting around like a lemon, waiting for him to turn it off, while he continues to blast his way through yet another level, as he repeats ‘just one more game’. Yeah, you’ve heard that a hundred times before!
Does this sound familiar? How many arguments have you both had because of the amount of time he spends on that console, rather than spending time with, or even paying attention to you? Your relationship otherwise would be faultless, if it weren’t for his affair with that time-consuming machine, ridiculously spurning you into feeling like some sort of jealous lover.
If this happens all too often, and it’s causing a strain on you both, then drastic times call for drastic measures. His gaming addiction doesn’t have to mean game-over for the two of you, but enough is enough. To save your relationship it’s time to bring out the big guns for mission possible, code word: sell Xbox 360.
All you want is to be made to feel special and valued, it’s not too much to ask. To be a good partner for you he has a duty to every so often make simple gestures to show you just how much he cares. This should be one of those times. Plus there are sites like Music Magpie that make it easy to sell it.
Ditching the console will mean that you both can dedicate more time to each other, bonding and enjoying the love you have for one other. The cash earned from this selfless declaration of his love for you could be well-spent on a romantic occasion just for you two. You could wine and dine at a favourite restaurant, or get away for a whole special weekend together, such as visiting a spa, or even take a short holiday to a warm, exotic location. Anywhere where you can both let your hair down, enjoy some much needed quality time together, and relax in peace and tranquility. Away from the blaring warfare game machine guns and booming explosions, at last!
