  • Be frank with him and tell him you are going home if he's just going to sit there and watch tv or play video games. Go out with some girlfriends and have a good time. If he does'nt like it tell him when he has more time for you you will spend more time with him.

  • What would the you like for him to be doing with you instead? Is it something that he also enjoys doing &/or the two of you enjoy doing together?

  • Calliesmommie- not all men are like that. That's like saying all women arent interesting to be around. Generalizations dont help a situation like that.

    OP- tell him you need some attention or you will find it else where.

  • Do something that didn't involve the tv or the computer is what I like to do. I'd like it if he paid attention to me once and while beside having sex. Without the tv on too!! Maybe I'm just being a big baby. idk anymore..
    well smiley I'm glad yours isn't like that.

  • In my situation, I find that when my dh is spending too much time doing his own thing, I find something to do myself. It doesn't take long before I become interesting again. It's the nature of the beast(or some beast) it seems.

  • sometimes i start loosing my bf to his game, just have to reel him back in. he hears an ear full, then make him have a guilt trip, then its all about me n our daughter. he loves to be in his own little world somethimes which is fine when its only sometimes. Guys get comfortable real quick so speak up. or even bargain. like last night he played games til like 1 and i said i wont get mad if he hung out with me all day. which did happen. good luck
