When you’re in love with someone you think they’d be a joy to have around for anything! You get in over your head and make commitments to the person you can never take back. Or you share things with them you realize were better left unsaid. Learn from many that have traveled down the wrong path before, and don’t do this.

    “A man tends to take up the attention in the room because men just have more assertive presences, so you’ll immediately steal the spotlight from your girl”…..is this a joke? PLEASE EXPLAIN YOURSELF because this kind of ignorance does not belong in the 21st century.

    What’s wrong with a girl being into video games? I’ve been a gamer practically all my life, I love playing them with my bf, no one’s ever complained about it, nothing wrong with a friendly competition anyways, that is, if you’re playing versus and not co-op. I’m sorry, but if a man got mad at me for being stuck on games when he does the same thing, that’s called a hypocrite. And if a little versus game of soul caliber can cause problems and tension in other areas of the relationship, well then you have some deeper issues. Of course, that part kinda insinuates that females are never into games unless a man introduces them.

    What kind of nutcase woman would invite her man to go to the gynecologist? What kind of nutcase man would go?

  • Kacti

    As long as both partners are completely sure it’s what they want.. it can be very fun! My husband and I have threesomes, always with girls.. and I have to say 9 times out of 10 I enjoy it even more than he does :)

      U can smell that GAY B—- a mile away!

  • CC

    I only clicked once but I can already speculate that this article is either for couples that are young specifically immature or the relationship is not serious. Other than that, this article is not valid to mature grown folks in a mature relationship. And yes team nymphis, don’t do it once if you’re not willing to keep doing it. Period.

  • Dani

    This is the most ignorant, uneducated amalgamation of words I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading. “Don’t do things with your significant other because then you won’t be able to do them alone.” Are you serious? Ar you trying to ruin African-American relationships?

    Garbage, but on track with most of the other “articles” here. Hip hip hooray for “Pay for Clicks” writing. I refuse to call it journalism because it’s not. It’s simply creative writing with poor quality and content.

  • J

    This is complete nonsense, believe it or not some women actually liked video games before they started dating. Me and my boyfriend play video games all the time. He made a list of the top 10 things he loves about me and this was number 6. Sometimes I play a game with out him, or vise versa. It is all about understand eachother, and sharing what we love.

    Good advice

  • Trent

    Good article with good advice.

    Only if one of you is an idiot.

  • CountryGirl

    This is true if youre not inlove and youre just a preppy snobby fake couple.. :)

  • Sara Gregory

    What a stupid misogynistic article. I can’t believe a woman wrote this. I think there is hat at Mc Donald’s with your name on it. Your greatest contribution to journalism may be providing a good batch of fries to a hungry writer of real articles and news.

  • Loren

    This is the worst article ever. Other than some common sense things 3/4’s of it is bs.

  • sorry

    how about using the phrase “would of”? (“Going to girls’ night”)

  • Female Gamer

    Video games, seriously? Very rarely has playing video games with my friends ever led to issues, no matter how competitive it gets. Never has it been any different with any of my boyfriends.

    • Dani

      I can’t plus 1 this comment enough. As a female gamer with my own podcast, community ect, reading this part of the article made me throw up in my mouth a little.

  • seancsdy

    What a dumb article . What girl is ok with their man hanging with his ex, especially if shes not allowed to meet her, yet so insecure that she cant handle his opinion on an actress on tv? Makes no sense! Their just letting anyone write this garbage.

  • 11 Years So Far

    I have done 12 of 14 with my wife. We have never had an Ex-spouse, and I’ve
    never had a tattoo and don’t want one either. All those other things have kept
    our 11 years of marriage interesting, as have our two kids. Here’s the thing,
    be honest with your mate, and expect them to be honest. If the honesty is not
    returned, and you are truly honest, then move on. So much of this non-sense is
    about keeping secrets. And what is the point of that if you have chosen a life
    mate? Good, bad, ugly, human, all of us.

  • uggh

    these stories are a complete pain in the a$$ to read.

  • Spica

    What the hell kinda article is this. Me and my live-in boyfriend loves playing videogames and it only brings us closer together since we have a common hobby. There’s so many dumb things in this article I don’t even know what to say :/

    • Mandy

      I agree entirely! I met my husband at my work: I manage a GameStop and he was a very persistent customer, lol, and we love gaming together. I think the guy that wrote this has been around too many insecure women…

      • Mandy

        Wait, nevermind. I didn’t realize a chick wrote this. Totally makes sense now, unfortunately…

  • PrimaFaciaTruth

    YOu forgot the most important thing…It’s also about enjoying each other,….naked. Duh.

  • PrimaFaciaTruth

    And showing that you trust him to bring that passion back to YOU. If you’ve got to worry about losing your man at a strip club, you’ve got a lot bigger problems in the relationship already.

    • http://twitter.com/HenaJaved Hena Javed(Lilith)

      Well, if it’s all about honesty, don’t you think a man will hate the fact that by going to a male strip club, the woman is looking at other males besides her boyfriend’s body, that she finds enticing? YES, he would. Works the other way around too.
      And you’re admitting the “enticing” part by saying “….you trust him to bring that passion back to YOU”.
      These are just gender stereotypes being reinforced. Remember this really crucial quote; “Truth will set you free. But first it will piss you off”, esp since you seem so set on passing it (your nick).

      • OracleAtDelphi

        Stereotypes sometimes (such as in this case, exist for good reason. Remember that really crucial truth too while you’re busy preaching.

  • peglegthebrave

    “…men just have more assertive presences”? This is so incredibly sexist. Based on an idea of how men and women interact and not how it actually is.

    I hope you didn’t get paid to write this drivel. It’s both psychologically AND grammatical crap on several levels.

  • dratman

    This is complete crap. Simply wrong. Ordinarily, go with her if you feel comfortable, otherwise wait for her in the waiting room or in the car. But during pregnancy try to do whatever she needs you to do.

    Horrible grammar.. “would of” seriously?

    • PrimaFaciaTruth

      Horrible manners…correcting “would of” in a comments section? Seriously?

      • morph2020

        Horrible manners…correcting somebody for correcting a stupid error.

        • PrimaFaciaTruth

          Sorry if my subtle illustration of KcWhy’s jackassery made you feel left out, jackass.

          • SailorVapor

            Yet you’re the only who feels the need to curse. Just thought I’d bring the fuel. Have at it.

          • Dani

            Creating an unnecessary internet argument on a trashy tabloid website. You go girl! Show the world how classy and intelligent you are! How dare someone expect decent grammar on a ~news site~. Clearly they are just bougie.

          • CC

            That is pretty appalling to make grammatical errors in an article that is supposed to be educational even if it is a trivial subject. As for you, what if morph thought you were of the “jackassery”??? You found fault in the same way someone else did. ijs……

    We literally became competitive and would argue all the time!! I
    remember playing a video game with him and I won and I repeatedly kept
    on winning! I bragged about it and told him how he was gonna let a girl
    beat him in an x box game, he got so frustrated with me that he threw
    the x box controller at me!! I was in shocked! I
    am beautiful woman and I love good man…..inter racial romance is my dream… so I
    joined —blackwhitePlanet.С0M—–it’s where to- connect with
    beautiful and excellent people! He became very insecure
    even asked me to stop playing video games with him!! I was hurt!! we
    stayed together for another 3 months but things were different!!!

  • fabe

    Going to the strip club. I think some women try too hard to be the
    “cool, secure girlfriend” when they tag along there w/ their guy. I am beautiful woman
    and interracial romance is my dream……so I joined —blackwhiteplanet.C0M——it’s
    where to connect with beautiful and excellent people!I bragged about it and told him how he was gonna let a girl beat him in
    an x box game, he got so frustrated with me that he threw the x box
    controller at me!! I was in shocked! He became very insecure even asked
    me to stop playing video games with him!!

  • ijs

    Well me and my bf were bffs before we got together, so the game thing we always saw eye to eye on, he loves it when i play the game with him but i dnt play often maybe thats the key. Guys night is sometimes at our house so thats inevitable, i wish he would introduce me to his ex i dnt play dat ish…and we always shared tons of s.e.x stories when we were friends so it doesnt bother us now to tlk abt it we still laugh

  • JAYLUV1

    with all the advice that’s been given on here, what to do and what not to do. all that is left is, know you are in a relationship, don’t expect much. keep your single life as is, except he/she is now the only partner, treat each other with respect-so others follow in toe, don’t dish all the goodies about your past until you know the foundation that both of you are building is strong enough to withhold any load, be protective of each other, be supportive, dont become lazy or comfortable (if you have no job and living together) keep the home clean, brush your teeth and take at least two showers per day.

    • PrimaFaciaTruth

      Yeah, if you’re an OCD clean freak maybe.

    • ijs

      it depends on the woman lol the couple really some couples love it. but i think that maybe a marriage thing (if they have that kind of marriage)

      • mac

        maybe so. But if absolutely nothing bothers a woman about their guy ogling naked strangers or one of said naked strangers dancing all over him, then they definitely have an “interesting” relationship. I’ll put it that way. Call it insecurity, call it whatever you want.
        Jealousy is a natural part of love (just not to an extreme extent of course).

        • OracleAtDelphi

          Posting the identical tripe twice didn’t make it any more true the second time either. Jealousy is only a part of love if that love is territorial. Figure it out.

        • nuskinny

          I use to think that too, but I’ve been told jealousy is a sign of insecurity.

        • tjleeland

          Jealousy is a sign of insecurity, not a part of love. If you know you have a strong marriage, your partner looking at someone won’t bother you. We ALL look at other people — both naked and clothed. Just not always in person.

        • morph2020

          Jealousy is a natural part of personal insecurity — not love.

  • Team nymphis

    Don’t do anything once…unless you’re willing to keep doing it.

  • busty

    #3 was soooo me and my ex!! We literally became competitive and would argue all the time!! I remember playing a video game with him and I won and I repeatedly kept on winning! I bragged about it and told him how he was gonna let a girl beat him in an x box game, he got so frustrated with me that he threw the x box controller at me!! I was in shocked!

    • ijs

      omg! seriously thats crazy lol now thats what you call a sore loser lmao

      • PrimaFaciaTruth

        That’s what you call a lil bish with a fragile male ego…

    • Spica

      That means your bf had anger issues. had nothing to do with gaming.

      • Spica

        Also, you seemed to have communication problems..?
