6 Reasons You Should Date A Gamer (Girl or Boy)

6 Reasons You Should Date A Gamer (Girl or Boy)

Most girls are looking for the ravishing bad boy who is going to make their love life interesting, despite the fact they know these boys are trouble. Meanwhile, the nerdy type is left alone with his games. Which is a pity, because there are so many reasons you should be dating a gamer boy. Or a gamer girl, in a boy’s case. You don’t have to know all the games they play, and you don’t have to join the gamer at Comic Con, but once you get to know them better, you will discover how many things you have in common. Plus, gamers are sexy creatures when you manage to take them away from the gaming console.

1. Gamers know the value of alone time

Most gamers know how valuable alone time is and don’t become jealous. They only become jealous when one of their friends has the latest game and they don’t. They will be happy to give you the space you need, as long as you do the same for them. There will be no problem when you want to spend the night with your friends, because your date will be spending the night playing a game. That’s a win-win!

2. Gamers are more intelligent than average

The Department of Defense conducted a study which revealed gamers are more intelligent than the average person. This is because video games ask for a sharp mind and the ability to solve problems fast. Playing a game also requires the ability to focus for a long time and the ability to observe and memorize. All these keep the brain active, just like you keep your muscles active by exercising.

Another habit of a gamer is the love for exploring new technologies. When you are learning to use a new technology, you also exercise your brain, which improves your intelligence.

3. Gamers have a broad imagination

When you are dating a gamer, you will never become bored, because they have really broad imaginations. Because they spend most of their time playing games featuring fantastic worlds, gamers know how to find the awesome in the most mundane things. This will make all of your moments together unique and memorable.

4. Gamers are low-maintenance

Who doesn’t want a low-maintenance date?! Gamers are able to play non-stop for hours on end without eating or asking for anything. They are also going to be ok with staying inside, having some pizza and chilling, just like they will be ok with going out. A gamer is definitely a low-maintenance date. Except for one thing…

5. You will have the best devices

Dating a gamer comes with a lot of perks in the technology area. You will always be able to enjoy the latest gaming chair, you will always have the best speakers and headsets on the market, you will have your own personal computer specialist and you will never have to call for the cable guy to fix the router or something similar. A gamer, boy or girl, knows technologies like his or her own hands and will always be eager to help you out with any tech-related problem you might have. Besides, they will always spend their money on technology instead of on casinos or other people.

6. Gamers are real-life heroes

A gamer never gives up, and when he or she does, he or she is going to use that time to recover, regroup and try again. A gamer will always look for alternatives and keep trying until the problem is solved. The same is valid for your relationship, as giving up is not acceptable for a gamer.

Because gamers are used to waiting – they wait for new games all the time – they will also have patience with you. If you need three hours to get ready for a walk, your gamer date will wait for you and maybe even play one level in the meantime. If you need more time to really find out what you feel about them, your gamer will have patience and won’t give up on you.

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

1. Work on the small tasks.

When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

2. Take a break from your work desk.

Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

3. Upgrade yourself

Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

4. Talk to a friend.

Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

6. Paint a vision to work towards.

If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

7. Read a book (or blog).

The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

8. Have a quick nap.

If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

9. Remember why you are doing this.

Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

10. Find some competition.

Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

11. Go exercise.

Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

12. Take a good break.

Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
