Heres an answer to the question: “So what is it you guys are doing?”
1) Date night is important. Really. Invest in the relationship just like you invest in EVE. Thats a lot of the “You need to sit on the couch and watch TV with me” part. EVE is very time intensive but you WILL make time for your significant other if you don’t want to be single.
2) Exercise. A 300lb. gamer is infinitely less desirable to most women than a 150lb gamer. If you can mine ice in HS for 8 hours you can exercise for 30 minutes. It doesn’t matter if you play EVE or not IF the woman in your life finds you unattractive because of weight gain. Thats reality and it can happen.
3) Have SOMETHING you do together. Make it something not video game related. It could actually BE exercise and you can kill two birds with one stone. Don’t make EVE sole primary interest because it is something that your significant other could feel excludes them.
Those are my big things. Expect more kill mails later in Feb and less words 🙂
