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.

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

7 Simple Rules to Live by to Get in Shape in Two Weeks

Learning how to get in shape and set goals is important if you’re looking to live a healthier lifestyle and get closer to your goal weight. While this does require changes to your daily routine, you’ll find that you are able to look and feel better in only two weeks.

Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to get in shape. Although anyone can cover the basics (eat right and exercise), there are some things that I could only learn through trial and error. Let’s cover some of the most important points for how to get in shape in two weeks.

1. Exercise Daily

It is far easier to make exercise a habit if it is a daily one. If you aren’t exercising at all, I recommend starting by exercising a half hour every day. When you only exercise a couple times per week, it is much easier to turn one day off into three days off, a week off, or a month off.

If you are already used to exercising, switching to three or four times a week to fit your schedule may be preferable, but it is a lot harder to maintain a workout program you don’t do every day.

Be careful to not repeat the same exercise routine each day. If you do an intense ab workout one day, try switching it up to general cardio the next. You can also squeeze in a day of light walking to break up the intensity.

2. Duration Doesn’t Substitute for Intensity

Once you get into the habit of regular exercise, where do you go if you still aren’t reaching your goals? Most people will solve the problem by exercising for longer periods of time, turning forty-minute workouts into two hour stretches. Not only does this drain your time, but it doesn’t work particularly well.

One study shows that “exercising for a whole hour instead of a half does not provide any additional loss in either body weight or fat”[1].

This is great news for both your schedule and your levels of motivation. You’ll likely find it much easier to exercise for 30 minutes a day instead of an hour. In those 30 minutes, do your best to up the intensity to your appropriate edge to get the most out of the time.

3. Acknowledge Your Limits

Many people get frustrated when they plateau in their weight loss or muscle gaining goals as they’re learning how to get in shape. Everyone has an equilibrium and genetic set point where their body wants to remain. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve your fitness goals, but don’t be too hard on yourself if you are struggling to lose weight or put on muscle.

Acknowledging a set point doesn’t mean giving up, but it does mean realizing the obstacles you face.

Expect to hit a plateau in your own fitness results[2]. When you expect a plateau, you can manage around it so you can continue your progress at a more realistic rate. When expectations meet reality, you can avoid dietary crashes.

4. Eat Healthy, Not Just Food That Looks Healthy

Know what you eat. Don’t fuss over minutia like whether you’re getting enough Omega 3’s or tryptophan, but be aware of the big things. Look at the foods you eat regularly and figure out whether they are healthy or not. Don’t get fooled by the deceptively healthy snacks just pretending to be good for you.

The basic nutritional advice includes:

  • Eat unprocessed foods
  • Eat more veggies
  • Use meat as a side dish, not a main course
  • Eat whole grains, not refined grains[3]

Eat whole grains when you want to learn how to get in shape.

    5. Watch Out for Travel

    Don’t let a four-day holiday interfere with your attempts when you’re learning how to get in shape. I don’t mean that you need to follow your diet and exercise plan without any excursion, but when you are in the first few weeks, still forming habits, be careful that a week long break doesn’t terminate your progress.

    This is also true of schedule changes that leave you suddenly busy or make it difficult to exercise. Have a backup plan so you can be consistent, at least for the first month when you are forming habits.

    If travel is on your schedule and can’t be avoided, make an exercise plan before you go[4], and make sure to pack exercise clothes and an exercise mat as motivation to keep you on track.

    6. Start Slow

    Ever start an exercise plan by running ten miles and then puking your guts out? Maybe you aren’t that extreme, but burnout is common early on when learning how to get in shape. You have a lifetime to be healthy, so don’t try to go from couch potato to athletic superstar in a week.

    If you are starting a running regime, for example, run less than you can to start. Starting strength training? Work with less weight than you could theoretically lift. Increasing intensity and pushing yourself can come later when your body becomes comfortable with regular exercise.

    7. Be Careful When Choosing a Workout Partner

    Should you have a workout partner? That depends. Workout partners can help you stay motivated and make exercising more fun. But they can also stop you from reaching your goals.

    My suggestion would be to have a workout partner, but when you start to plateau (either in physical ability, weight loss/gain, or overall health) and you haven’t reached your goals, consider mixing things up a bit.

    If you plateau, you may need to make changes to continue improving. In this case it’s important to talk to your workout partner about the changes you want to make, and if they don’t seem motivated to continue, offer a thirty day break where you both try different activities.

    I notice that guys working out together tend to match strength after a brief adjustment phase. Even if both are trying to improve, something seems to stall improvement once they reach a certain point. I found that I was able to lift as much as 30-50% more after taking a short break from my regular workout partner.

    Final Thoughts

    Learning how to get in shape in as little as two weeks sounds daunting, but if you’re motivated and have the time and energy to devote to it, it’s certainly possible.

    Find an exercise routine that works for you, eat healthy, drink lots of water, and watch as the transformation begins.
