Anyone else have problems with your SO/DH being addicted to Online gaming?

He denies it but he is online most of his free time..chatting with people, etc. I'd rather he use some of that time to chat with me :-(
How do you get someone OFFline sometimes *sigh*

  • We did until I deleted his game off the computer. No matter how much talking I need he wouldn't stay off his game so I deleted it. He hasn't had a online gaming thing since.

  • He gets really bad when he starts playing the game.. what i do is totally ignore him when he needs to talk. Or if i really need to talk to him i just go and turn it off. He is worse with his xbox games. I want to sell them sometimes including the xbox. but then i couldn't watch anything. lol

  • If I deleted any of my husbands games I am not sure what he would do! I will say he has gotten better over the years...

  • It's really starting to get to me..when he's online I just wanna scream lately. Why do these men think it's better to talk online then to their own family? *sigh*
