It truly isn't that hard to manage your *game" time and "RL" time, there is a way to find balance. Myself and my boyfriend whom I live with, work our 8 hours/5day a week job. Our home is not in shambles, dishes are done, carpet is clean, and meals are cooked. We both have a sub for WoW, and play almost every evening after work, and on the weekends.This works, because we both are into the game. I personally couldn't be with someone who didn't share my passion for games, I know of a couple who live like this, and it's baffling. It seems Confused Shaman had everything going for him until he got too carried away, which most certainly has likely happened to each of us at least once. You get caught up in these games, they suck you in, and before you know it, it's 3:00am and you have work in 5 hours. I don't beleive cutting games out completely is the remedy, it sounds like he really wants to play WoW again, and if not WoW, some other form of an MMORPG. Your girlfriend once enjoyed the game, you both played together and had a good time. It has been 2 years since you last played, and by now I'd hope your girlfriend has cooled off. I don't think at this point it would hurt to ask if she'd want to roll new toons to enjoy the new content together, and re-experience the changes that have come with Cataclysm. For me and my man, gaming isn't only fun for us, and something to do together. We sit right behind eachother, so it's great in PVP, we're quite the duo. We don't raid, just casual BG's and dungeons, while we enjoy what the game has to offer. Gaming is apart of you, it's apart of me, and if you've learned not to neglect your real world duties and tasks over the past two years (job/cleaning/cooking/spouse), you can merge gaming into your day.
