Let me fill you in on a little sercet:

Gaming guys are the best guys.

Most girls HATE when their boyfriend/husband plays video games. Girls hate it because it takes away time from their relationship, they feel like they're number two. Ladies, let me tell you something, that isn't the case. Gamers work in a special way, and they're honestly the best guys a girl could ask for.

Here are some more reasons gamers are great to date:

Gamers play games as a stress relief.

When a gamer is stressed out, the first thing he reaches for is his controller. This is his way of releasing the stress he's dealing with. He's releasing it by playing games, not with alcohol or by going out with a wild crowd. He's sitting in his room playing games and yelling at the screen, and if that means he's getting rid of the stress he's dealing with, that's okay by me.

You'll never have to worry about where he is.

While other girls may be worried about where their man is, you can be content with knowing yours is in his room playing games like Destiny. Your man may not be writing you back, but it isn't because he's in a club, it's because he's in an intense game with his buddies.

Watching them play is hilarious.

Let's be real ladies, gamers have such a colorful way with words. They'll combine words and make hilarious comments about their games. Personally my man doesn't cuss, so this is even funnier when he's mad at a game. I've heard so many different combinations of words that I could write my own dictionary of words with things he's said. It's more funny than Comedy Central in my opinion.

They'll be perfectly fine with however long it takes you to get ready.

They won't complain if it takes you hours to get ready, because this just gives them more time to unlock the next level.

Two Words: Fast Reflexes

This sounds really dumb, but its so true. The games actually train them to notice things you wouldn't. There have been at least 5 times my fiance and I have been driving around and he's avoided a wreck or accident simply because he was paying such close attention.

They're full of fun and jokes.

Dating a gamer is the best because they're constantly making things fun. They always make jokes and will plan things that are fun for you two. Gamers are the best because they have a young soul, so they enjoy having fun.


Because to be honest I have no idea about anything technology related, so he can fix things when I break them. That's a major plus to me.

So despite what others may think, gamers are the best. When dating a gamer, try to understand they aren't choosing the game over you. Try to enjoy the fun they have. Embrace their games, and your relationship will be the best you've ever been in.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
