My boyfriend and I have have lived together for almost a year now. I have 2 small kids from a previous relationship. My boyfriend works from home but is working all day (which is to be expected lol) and I'm a stay at home mom. He is usually done by 3:30 when my 3 year old is home from school. We make go outside and play, make dinner, feed the kids, bath time, story time, and bedtime for the kids around 7pm. Then he goes straight onto his computer for the night playing video games. Our original deal was he could play his video game Monday, Wed, Friday nights. Now it's turned into well he plays "wow" mon, wed, fri but he does other video game related stuff tues, thursday, sat and sunday.
I'm starting to feel so alone, more like a room mate than his girlfriend. Any time I try to talk to him about it he just gets mad and says he'll just quit playing all together. On one hand I want to scream yes! But I know he enjoys it so I wont. But at the same time I feel like I shouldn't feel less important than a video game.
As much as I love him and I honestly do love him I'm starting to feel like were not going to work out bc of the video games. I want someone that wants to spend time with me, and wants to go to bed with me. He says we spend enough time together during the day but really he is upstairs working all day and I'm down stairs with my daughter.
Idk do you think im over reacting?
