Staff writer Rigby Rat discusses the mismatched dating situation using the example of dating a video gamer. Was this you?
“He likes to play video games all the time. As a result, I think he is: not well rounded and not too bright. In addition, he has a very limited vocabulary. ”
Okay, but you picked him!
Because he’s a video gamer, now you think you’re not compatible. Then tell him the truth – “we’re a mismatch”, buy him a new video game, wish him well, and move on. Life is too short to waste time on a dude who prefers video games to intellectual stimulation and growth.
There are plenty of cerebral-sexual guys (a term I coined) out there who read books, visit museums, own a library card, go to plays, like to take hand-holding walks, have a vocabulary above a ninth-grader, and believe learning doesn’t stop at the completion of a technical or college education. So, go get yourself a C-SG and enjoy the rewards of a compatible partner who will enrich your life and vice versa.
Food for thought: you don’t see grown women playing with dolls. How come grown men play video games?
