I have the most amazing boyfriend ever! "He's perfect" I thought. I was certain I had found my fairy tale life. And then... Fallout 4 landed ...

I've heard the term "football widow" for sure. But never did I imagine I would be upstaged by a video game.

Even Damian the Cat felt his Absence...

I started out trying to be a super supportive girlfriend. I insisted I didn't mind if he played and even found myself intrigued by the intro of the game, thinking for a moment; "oh, video games are like movies, this will be fun!"...

It was lie. Video games aren't fun.

After the initial plot was revealed, he spent an hour and a half in front of a simulated mirror searching for the "perfect red coif" and adjusting his character's broken nose... I was sure this was some strange form of karma for that time I made him watch "Age of Adeline."

 

 

The truth is, Nate is still the best boyfriend ever. He cooks, he cleans, he makes me laugh, he's fantastic with my daughter, and he looks great in a suit. And I guess in life you just have to take the good with the not so good. Luckily I know, I'm not alone.

(Also, here's a really funny song about the reality that is "Video Game Abandonment". If you also have experienced this phenomenon, give me a call. We can watch chick flicks together and eat copious amounts of ice cream to the soundtrack of Fallout 4 and my boyfriends occasional outbursts.)
