Back when I first started playing WoW, I was leveling with my girlfriend at the time. She already had two 70's (this was a few months before Wrath came out) but she said she wanted to level up a hunter with me on my warlock. We had so much fun leveling together and we managed to make it up to level 74 before things ended.But when we were not able to play together, either because of both of us having school or her having work, I would level up a bunch of alts, simply because I wanted to play WoW and had more free time than her. The way I saw it was I was leveling these alts with different professions so that I could help her out if she ever needed someone to tank for her, or maybe craft some glyphs or something like that. She never outright said that she was bothered that I played without her, but she didn't seem happy."So what did you do today? Oh. you played your druid. Okay."Leveling my first toon with her was some of the most fun I had ever had in Warcraft, and I wish we could have reached the level cap and achieved our dreams of raiding in a friend's guild, but I still wish she had understood my motives behind leveling alts. It wasn't because I could not wait for her, I simply wanted to have a better understanding of the game and its different roles and classes so I could better assist her or ourselves if the need ever arose.Now I have my level cap warlock that I have just started raiding with, but I also have a new friend I met that I level with sometimes. I feel bad when she asks me to play with her and I have a raid or something coming up, or if I am running heroics, but I do still try to make time to play with her, too.Whew, that was long.

No you definitely just leveled up alts because you didn't want your GF to get mad that you leveled up the character you were supposed to level with her. And you really just wanted to play cuz this game is pretty awesome. I'm sure she saw right through your "but i went ahead and leveled all these characters to assist you in leveling up",let's face it, girls are smarter than us.

"No you definitely just leveled up alts because you didn't want your GF to get mad that you leveled up the character you were supposed to level with her."As the other side of that (I've leveled a couple sets of alts with my BF now), that would also be a perfectly acceptable explanation. Anything that shows you're conscious of the agreement to run the toons *together* and keep them at close to the same level as you can is a good thing, at least in my books.
