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 Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
