What’s your dirty little secret?

   Posted by: Red Moon   in RedMoons Rants

If my wife knows that I bought the Ice Pack she will freeze my ballsI have to leave now, my hubby is just arriving and if he catch me playing again he will kick my assI can’t wait for my spouse to leave the house with the kids so I can play in peace and enjoy… Are those lines familiar to you?. Have you ever heard a player saying things like that?. Well, I have heard that many times.

I have seen respectable people that hides at the bathroom with the laptop to play, pretending to feel sick of their stomachs; some others that get a new credit card to spend at the game without telling a word to their partners… I have even know about a guy that took a female character instead of a male’s one because “his wife is too jelous, and that’s the only way she allows him to play”, could you believe it?!!!.
After seeing all that I came to a conclusion that I want to share with you here: for some players, the game is a lover. It´s that dirty little secret that makes them happy. The forbidden exciting pleasure that they hide in the closet. The prohibited activity that makes them feel young again.

I always imagine those players making up excuses to get that free time to play… things likehoney, I’ve just received an important mail from work… please, don’t disturb me for a little while, I could be fired if I don’t finish that report asap(and there is when our guy runs to play poker, of course!).
I can even make a mental picture of the wife yelling at the guilty husband you were at Dark Warriors again! I smell the upper ven in your hair! And yesterday you were dreaming about it… I heard you repeating 175.000 kills…180.000 kills…190.000 kills all night long!.

Now I can’t avoid wondering… Why these players keep hidding the game to their partners? … Is it that they need to keep it at a “prohibited” path in their lives because they feel more excitement in that way, or are they just being greedy and doesn’t want to share the fun?.

Experience shows that entertainment activities with your better half could be an excellent idea. I think about Mama and Ox, husband and wife in real life that plays all the OGN games together and daily have a lot of fun with that. I also remember Begone and Sir Lee, fighting arm with arm at the ven; Devious and TheNiteMare, and so many other successful cases of real life couples improving their game experience by shearing the same hobby…

So my advice for those players that behave as if the game were their lover is this: relax, have fun, invite your better half to get into it… Make it a threesome!

My GF knows how vicious i am abbout playing, but she is the kind of woman that will share all my fun..if i do the same..that means..more ballet and Opera, more “exercice”, to get more DW lol

Ox and Mama D. are a good example of sharing love in bought worlds.

Spot on I have tried to get the wifey involved but she really hates this game. Apparently it takes over our family life. If she only knew how much I have spent she would kill me then track down poor old Tom.
