Video gaming isn’t for everyone, and that can put pressure on a relationship to a degree but this guy’s girlfriend escalated things very quickly.
This tale of love in the 21st century was uploaded to Reddit by a user called Trainer_A, and it is absolutely priceless.
Basically this guy was caught in an unenviable position between ‘Destiny’, his friends, and a new girlfriend.
He explained in the post:
So I have been seeing this girl for about a month. Totally cool down to earth, easy to talk to with a lot of shared interest, expect one. She hates how much I play Destiny even though she was fine with it at first. I wouldn’t say I’m addicted or anything but I like to play when I get home after work and when I have free time and what not.
So today I get a text from her asking what I’m doing tonight. I tell her when I get off work I’m going to play some Destiny before I have to leave for hockey. She ends up calling me gets pretty upset saying that we should spend some time together before I go to hockey and that I shouldn’t be wasting my time on a video game. I remind her that we hung out yesterday and are hanging out again tomorrow and I was looking forward to some me time. So then she drops an ultimatum on me, its either her or Destiny. Then hangs up.
Clearly things were not going to be ending in the pissed off girl’s favour, and Trainer_A certainly wasn’t going to sugar coat it…
He ended his post saying:
I’m a little rattled by the whole thing and don’t really know what to do tonight now. So I figured I would ask the reddit community for some guidance. What do you guys think I should do? Iron Banner or Trials?
Yeah, ultimatums aren’t a great idea at any stage of a relationship let alone right at the start!
