He is a computer science major. He is useless at fixing computers. He can install ram, but he cannot tell me how to get rid of a virus or why my screen is suddenly sideways or recommend me a good DVD burning program.
Before we moved in together, he had a LIFE. He had a job and friends! Now he has no job, no friends, no challenging coursework. Just an Xbox, a TV and a computer. It has made sleeping arrangements difficult. He goes to bed after I do. I get up a lot earlier than he does. I do not mind sleeping on the futon. He minds because his precious games are not in the bedroom. But if he sleeps on the futon, I am constantly waking him up between 6 and 7:30am and he does not like that! We have to come up with some kind of working plan by new years. Even though it is like I am sleeping with a crash-test dummy, I do not feel comfortable sleeping in a bed with him while I am currently dreaming about somebody else. It is just weird.
The whole thing makes me laugh.
. I cannot believe I got myself into such a mess, yet things are going quite well. I could not be happier right now.
I am beyond overtired.
Nice to know that I have a lot in common with some of you out there.
Is anyone dating an engineer?! What is that like?
Wow!!! I guess if you are not into video games, then it's hard to keep up with what they are into.
There are occasions when I don't even know what my boyfriend is playing. And Runescape is old....... Also, sounds to me like your guy needs to study more about computers if he plans to do well in the field of computer science.
I don't actually live with my boyfriend because we are in a long distance relationship, but I'm sure we would have our disagreements if we did. It drives him crazy when I stay over because I usually go to bed around 2am, and he likes to go to bed at 11pm. During those times, we usually compromise, but we only see each other for a very short time. If I were you, I'd make him move his games into the bedroom and then you could sleep on the futon. You're working hard for your future while he plays video games all day, so don't let him drag you down.
I'm glad things are going well. I'm worried about what will happen in the Spring if I get into vet school. I don't know how a long distance relationship for another 4-7 years would work. :/
