i love the xbox.. and my boyfriend hates it.. hahaha!!!
not been on it much really tho cause now am pregnant a get tired easily and it hurts if i sit too long in one position, altho i used to be on it alll the time!!!
i would chuck your fella off it and buy a game for it that you might like.. and take over his xbox.. see how he feels lol!!.. ya never know.. you might like it..
my fellas buying me kinect next week ready for when ive had my lil man!! cant wait!!.. just hope i have as much motivation for that as i do for sitting down infront of the xbox with the controller lol!!.. xx
Maybe if he's so agressive and reacts badly when you try to talk to him whilst he's playing prehaps you could write a letter explaining how it's making you feel and get him to read it when he's not playing. I think sometimes blokes get so caught up in it they don't realise what they're doing or how much it's bothering you. Be honest without being too accusatory so he doesn't go automatically on the defense. Like you've said, normally he's a good guy so should take time to talk to you about it xx
Good luck and I hope you resolve it before baby comes! xx
the aggression is the worst i actually feel a bit on edge when hes online and he doesnt seem to understand at all! hes usually so calm and relaxed but when hes on his xbox he shouts and throws things, punches the table/sofa, gets arsey with me aswell and doesnt talk whatsoever im actually waiting one day for him to get so wound up that something gets bounced off my head because he hasnt realised what hes done and tbh im at breaking point with the thing i love my OH but i wish he would spend more time with me rather than his online friends or his games
Wow barrowland I could be writing your posts. My otherwise fantastic DH gets exactly the same and it scares me too, the thought of what he might do by accident x
my OH has a ps3 and plays call of duty all th time he gets so into it he wont even hear me if i ask him a Q, hes on it just now apparantly they get double points tonight so he will be on even longer! Great!
I hate the thing too!! The other day my OH and I had an arguement, he left me somewhere I didn't know, and I had to walk 3miles home guessing where to go, as I had no money for bus and my phone was out of battery.
When I got home, I tried contacting him and instead of him trying to sort out the problem he was on his xbox instead. It made me feel he'd rather be on that than sort out our problems.
Not only that, when I'm with him round his he'd quite happily be on there for 3 hours and leave me with nothing to do!! I did confront him about it and now it's not as often but he still does it occassionally. Either way it just stresses me out!!
I hope to god when I do eventually become pregnant and we've had a baby he isn't the same!!! xx
yeah but it doesnt help that earlier he got so annoyed on halo that he smashed his favourite cup and almost broke a remote aswell and then got pissed off that hed smashed the cup and stormed about the flat trashing it looking for superglue that i said we didnt have and he bit my head off he appologised later but its not the point i really dont need it right now i just want some support im in alot of pain with my back and spd and leg cramps and all sorts and i just want his to cuddle me but he either snaps at me or swears at his games cos hes on them all the time
wow at least I know I'm not alone. I try to be very understanding and not make a big deal, but when spending time online with the guys is more important than spending a little time with me it's dreadful....
I don't feel like I ask for a lot but right now he is out there screaming at the tv for the superbowl. I stopped watchin because he was being an idiot. He's been so mean and just downright absent lately. I can't stand it..he doesn't get it and I know men don't understand since they can't be pregnant but dang is it that hard to just be nice every once in a while?
I find this really funny... The only thing I hate about the xbox is when DH is playing it and I want a go. I'm also the more aggressive of the two of us with video games - I'm very competitive and my hubby is incredibly relaxed. I honestly don't think it's a "guy" thing. There are some really amazing games on the XBox (Lost Odyssey is my newest and latest addiction), and it's honestly gotten me through some of my bedridden days.
