    Default Partner stayed on computer all day?

    I am a male and my wife is pregnant and I play wow a lot. But I choose my times. While she has been pregnant I have done all the housework and still had time for two jobs and my wow time. Maybe talk to him and explain it. If he is anything like me he will understand. But at the same time I use wow to get away from reality at times.

    Happy bday and good luck

    Happy birthday!
    My DH is constantly on the PC or his phone or watching tv. I feel like technology gets in the way of our relationship and intimacy. He doesn't play games though, but it's all the same. Hope you have a better day tomorrow xx

    Short answer... YES.

    My DH would never do that in a million years. Wow... that just shows such a lack of respect for you.

    Does he show his respect and appreciation for you in other ways on other days? (daily I mean?)..

    I'd be so hurt.

    Happy birthday.
    My DH is a gamer and it has caused many many fights over the years. Although he would never be so careless on my birthday.
    It's his way of socializing as he uses vent to chat whilst gaming. I played wow for a while so I understand how easily it can become an addiction and time can creep away.
    We have set rules now that gaming does not come before family and jobs and when he starts to fall back into old habits I remind him (and we usually fight but he does change his habits for a while). he now mainly plays at night once DD is in bed and of I go to bed and he stays up until early hours of the lurking playing he settles DD when she wakes. On the weekend he asks if I want any jobs done before disappearing to play.

    I often say gee i wish i could just sit there watching cartoons but i dont have a choice because someone has to feed / dress / toilet our son & clean all the mess.

    lmao... sorry, just my DH is really into anime too! ANd ALWAYS has one show or another loaded in multiple windows on his comp. And I say the same things.. lol, "Oh so I see you're in here working really hard watching cartoons"

    And he gets all cranky "They're NOT cartoons, they're animation, it's different."

    Sorry, just made me chuckle.

    I think it's really low he's made no effort for you on your birthday, or any day really. I would be asking DH to give me a list of the reasons he was with me and what he loved about me... coz behaving like that sure as hell isn't showing it!

    DP is a gamer. But we have worked out how it works well between us. And that is really important. I get annoyed if we have his daughter and he plays all day. I think that is irresponsible. I don't mind if he plays for a bit after dinner and then we will both normally watch an anime that we both enjoy before bed.

    Each to their own...

    Happy birthday OP. Hope you at least got some you time at some stage.... Unfortunately I haven't been in that situation before... DP has been away for all my birthdays since we got together
