Girls who game don't want to date guys who game? True or False?

I mean we know the reverse is true but do girls/women who game wanna date a guy who does? "Gamer" isn't exactly a compliment for guys these days. I'm interested to know since I've heard both yes and no. What say you?

I do not mind if my man is a gamer as long as he know how to spend time with me too.

Does gaming together time count for that? Or do you like to do it separately.

I prefer my partner to be a gamer, but it's important that they don't take advantage and think they can put less effort into the relationship. Gaming together is fun but it shouldn't replace actual dates that involve going out together.

Probably true for any relationship but I can see how it's probably easier to let it slide with gaming.

Go into any game lobby with voice chat for 10 seconds and tell me the general impression you get from "gamers" after that. Now throw a woman's voice in the mix. I don't blame people for immediately assuming that a "gamer" has toxic traits. Couple this with stereotypes of not bathing and exercising, and you can imagine the stigma. Obviously I don't speak for everyone's perspective. The less exposure someone has to "gamers" the more wary they may be of them. I think so long as you're a gamer who can exercise personal control, and not have your personality revolve video games, you won't fall into this stigma. I say all of this as a recreational gamer.

No I have witnessed it myself you're not lying. Unfortunately yeah as soon as guys hear a girl's voice things immediately change which is ridiculous but it happens definitely I can't deny that I've seen it.

Why is gamer used as a derogatory term? We just like video games.

Dunno. I think journalists as of late are using it to insinuate like creepy incels who live in the basement etc. Although there is some bad behavior we can't deny that I still think most of us aren't that.

I would also say that corporations kinda ruined the term as well. I never really call myself or my friends gamers unless we’re just memeing around.

As long as being a "gamer" isn't his whole personality. Also, has to be a nice one, the community is so toxic and full of misogynists 😬 so i totally understand why girls who game don't want to date gamer boys, I know so many girls with bad experiences with gamer boys. Of course, they're not all like that, but ohhh boy, the bad ones are majority.

I'm so upset to hear that people think it's probably the majority. I have definitely witnessed it myself and even spoke up a few times online just to say hey you know cut the s***. Of course then I became the target LOL and they accused me of you know trying to impress the girl etc etc so I get it sometimes it can be a no-win situation

I think false... I think it really just depends on both the guy and girl. Back when I was still big on games, I dated a gamer guy. We played a lot together, I thought it was pretty cool.
