I'm the same as Esk and Pyornthe. I played WoW for quite a while but was very casual and usually only played over summer and winter break so I could focus on school. (I should really start doing that again, but, I'm an addict.)I kept trying and trying to convince my boyfriend to play, but he would have none of it. He teased me for playing something so nerdy and was more of a console guy. At the time, he also didn't have a computer as good as mine. (Yes, how horrible for him. His girlfriend had the better computer.)Finally, for Christmas, around the time BC came out, I bought him vanilla WoW. He was like, oh man, why did you buy this? But he played the trial and ended up liking it. Although for a while he thought the idea of paying monthly for a game was absurd, so I think I bought him a subscription card whenever I wanted to play so he would play with me. I was totally an enabler.Now he plays more than me, and it kind of ticks me off that he's better than I am. I've never been a great gamer, I guess, but I still know things he doesn't: yesterday he didn't know you could hit ESC to stop attacking Maexxna and we wiped partially because of it - but he's the one the raid leaders whisper to group with, not me. It's a bit annoying. Partially it's the class (he's a rogue, I'm a warlock), partially it's his tenacity (he'll stay in LookingForGroup ALL DAY and run things as often as possible, while that starts to wear on me after a while and I'm shy to advertise in LFG sometimes) and partially it's because I have to go to school and he's currently sitting on his ass unemployed. The other day I asked him to /played and he's logged literally twice as much time into his level 80 than I have into mine, though even with school and alts I got to 80 just a few days after him.So, it's fun to play together, but be aware there will be little issues if she's the type to get jealous if you progress faster than she does (or seemingly so). But I mean, I don't give him that much crap. I just try that much harder to be a better player, you know? I don't regret introducing him to the game. Usually. ;P
