Letter to the Editor:
Another Man to Avoid Dating - "The Gamer"

Editor's Note: The following letter is in reference to the article "Five Men to Avoid Dating" and the Letter to the Editor that mentions a sixth to avoid dating - "The Dude".

I've had my fair share of this one, and I think others need to be on the look out...

#7 The Gamer
This guy has never grown up past his days as a outcast high school student. His friends are the only ones he really cares about, and he can go on for hours about their latest rpg campaign. If you're hot, you have an advantage because you're that much closer to the woman he lusts over online or in the fantasy art books for his games. He spends hours tweaking his computer for optimal performance, and most conversations the two of you have will involve you talking to his back, set to the tune of swords slashing and vicious demons growling. His idea of "going out" will involve either calling in for dinner and going to pick it up, or hitting the bar, cause there isn't any alcohol around.

Why you should stay away: You'll never live up to his virtual expectations on how woman should behave or look. If you don't know how to handle a weapon, or enjoy dressing in leather every other night, or know what the point of a twenty sided dice is, you're going to find yourself woefully neglected. He might give you just enough attention to keep you holding on, but as soon as he can, he'll be back in front of the computer. The response to any argument will boil down to "What's the problem? It's something I enjoy doing, but it's not real. Why should it bother you? It's just fantasy"

How to get rid of him: Ask him to give up Friday night gaming and take *you* out every once in a while.
