    LOL Thanks, for reference I am successfully married for a little over 18 years now, and quite happy to keep that situation ongoing till one of us dies.
    I'm in a relationship with him for over 12 years now, haha. And he still thinks I'm irresistible, so I must be doing something right... I want nothing more than to settle down with him, raise a family. Do the whole nine yards. I've wanted this ever since we met, and it saddens me to think that he would want to see me with other men that way... For me that is not true love. True love is still something I'm trying to understand the meaning of. What is TRUE love? Self-sacrifice? Undying loyalty? As you can see, I like to ponder about the deeper meanings in life... Like, what I'm doing right now is an intellectual experimentation if you will. Why am I going after things that ultimately will not make you happy? What will ultimately make you happy? This is another thing MMORPG.com has inspired me to think about. To think about your deepest desires and where they spring from originally... What is the source? Isn't life so fascinating but also cruelly deceptive? Why keep us in this perpetual cycle of pain and suffering? What is the meaning of it all?! And when I try to bring this up in a conversation with him, he acts kind of childish and makes fun of me... Oh, but how I still love him despite his lack of understanding. :) I think that's true love; to love someone deeply despite their flaws. See, I am coming closer to the truth each day...

    I am straying off topic here by a lot... but I also feel that it's important to talk about issues that are not necessarily "game" related. But just to keep things relatable:

    Also I would love to see your Character Analysis of me however, this should be fun. You said you did such, so, send me a message or something.
    Ungood, I wanted to make fan-art of you, too... You've been so kind to me. :) But I have a hard time forming a mental image around you... Do you have any favorite game characters, or how would you like to see yourself "painted"? :) You can message me if you like. This goes for everyone else who is also interested. :)

    Oh my god, that had me roaring with laughter... I am so embarrassed. OF COURSE I AM DEALING WITH GROWN MEN HERE WHO ARE ALREADY SETTLED.
    Or even beyond :) (since grown and settled indicates something around 30?)

    Based on threads like the First game/First MMORPG I believe it's a safe bet a lot of us here are in the 40s and 50s, maybe even higher.
    Many of us started with ZX and Commodore games in the '80s, according to the thread. Some even earlier...

    This he doesn't get... We did plan on playing some SWTOR together next week, when his Internet is better, so hopefully I'll have an easier time talking to him about videogames instead of my dirty escapades. Then I'll mention MMORPG.com forums and see how he reacts... >:)
    If MMORPGs are not his liking, Scorchien mentioned the game It Takes Two in the other thread, and the reviews are actually nice. Looks like it's built for couples and shared play.

    SWTOR is good as well for a duo play, lots of heroic2 and 4 missions, but a good pair (and companions) can clear out most heroic4 too.

    Oh, he's going to love that. >:) Now I can add even more detail to my smutty fantasies with him. ;) Ah, the things you do for love... o:)

    We played Dauntless together and we had such a blast. Lots of laughs and fun idiotic actions (mostly on my part, though). But a blast nonetheless. Shame it was so heavily instanced based, otherwise we would have probably kept to it... :)

    We played Spiral Knights waaaay back together, too, and it was fun. We both like to play videogames together, but I'm also very independent... Do not like spending too much time with my boo (I'm used to being so independent that I get very tetchy when I have to spend too much time with just about anyone). I DO LOVE HIM, but it's just... eh, I can't let my lone self fly. It's just too embedded within me. Do you know that feelings of being too afraid of losing yourself to someone else? I don't want to lose myself to someone else. I didn't even have a teddybear when I was a kid. Human attachments are not exactly to my understanding. :)

    The both of us also LOVE Star Wars, so I think it will be a safe bet. As long as we can play together, it doesn't really matter what the game is all about though. I played SWTOR at launch, but for some reason I can't remember anything specific about it... I think it didn't really capture my interest at the time... Hopefully now it'll be a completely different experience. Besides, now I get to fool around with my man. :D It's not always a bad thing to start an old MMO later in life... :)

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    Just a quick update... 

    While we were lying in bed tonight, he said to me: "I shall do whatever commandest thee..." and started talking about metaphysical stuff OUT OF NOWHERE. Either he has an account on MMORPG.com and has read my Thread, or it's divine intervention working out its magic...  That's when I realized how sexy he was. He then proceeded to whisper into my ear asking me why I was laughing so uncontrollably loud... "What are you hiding, naughty girl...? When you laugh like that it's called "Duper's Delight" with "I'll love you no matter what you do..." at the end. So hot...

    And then it dawned on me: 

    I am evil. I must be propelled by some pure Satanic force to do the things I have done. How can I have been so friendly with P_ogg and Ungood when I am with him?!?! I would feel so HURT if I found out he was being so generous with any of his lady friends, especially behind my back. P_ogg, Ungood, you are both precious to me... This is true. You've both been too kind. I don't deserve any of your support... I AM WICKED. I never thought I would have been capable of such treachery, but apparently I'm no better than a harlot. Ugh... 

    Things I have learned so far the absolute hard way: 

    1. Think twice before you act. Actually, in my case... Think a thousand times over.

    2. Already thought a thousand times over and maybe have it rechecked by someone else with brains? Ok. Good. You may proceed to step 3.

    3. Keep things always ON TOPIC no matter what.

    4. KEEP THINGS ALWAYS ON TOPIC NO MATTER WHAT AND DO NOT FOR THE LOVE OF GOD SHARE YOUR PERSONAL MATTERS WITH ANYONE ELSE EXCEPT FOR YOUR CLOSE FRIENDS OR ON AN ANYNOMOUS MESSAGE BOARD YOU TWAT

    Why does this always happen to me? It's always the same story... I live for the moment, it feels fantastic, but then as soon as I land on the ground everything around me collapses. Am I delusional? Am I just stupid? Am I possessed by some demon that is out to destroy my life? People like my should just stick to drawing and shut the hell up... :'( 

    Don't let my awesome oratory skills fool you. I am nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    Have a good night.

    Don't let my awesome oratory skills fool you. I am nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    We are chatting on a message board about games, a hobby we all share, and for some of us, derive joy from playing these games, for several years at a time, we even have one member that has been playing UO for 24 years straight.. Nothing but mad props for that.

    So we hang out here, talk stuff, maybe talk a little trash, but at the end of the day are, I hope, somewhat decent people, and hopefully at the end of our discussions, maybe not want tea bag the shit out each other in some obscure PvP game.. sometimes.. we do.. I know I have felt that urge towards some posters.. I am sure others have felt it towards me as well.

    What We are not having is some gnarly affair like horses in heat in the back of a car on a dirt road out in the middle of nowhere.

    So there is no reason for you to not enjoy sharing a discussion with people that all share the same hobby with you. If your beloved was into MMO's he is just as welcome as you are to come and post with us, join discussions, start discussions, and what have you, and we would.. for the most part (Highly depending on how he acted) treat him pretty much the same as you.

    Just like if we are all model train makers, or discussing mad photoshop skills, this is just a forum for people who enjoy a specific hobby.

    Unless you have been private messaging some intimate stuff with these posters... actually you did nothing wrong by any standards and neither did they.

    uhm. if you are being made to believe that you cannot have friends of the opposite sex, that is the textbook example of a controlling toxic relationship...

    What others said, nothing wicked or evil here, and no treachery either. You're just having a forum conversation with random people.
    Honestly, hard to think on anything less treacherous than this :)

    If you mail about something at work for instance, then you actually know them in person.
    Or on discord, the chat is more "on time" and responsive.
    On cam you actually see and hear others. And it's still nothing even close to treachery if you simply chat about work, hobby or anything.

    If the "behind the back" part worries you, why don't just show him the thread?
    It's a friendly and civil discussion (some threads can have quite the drama and heated debates), there's no evil, harlot things in it... as Twisted says

    I DON'T want this. Not at all. I've always just wanted people to talk to about shared interests like MMOs...

    He would LOVE for me to have friends of the opposite sex. But he always turns my relationships with other men into... Something dirty. I allow it because I love him, but I think this fetish of his is getting out of hand... It's turning me into something I am essentially not. 

    I have given up with making friends with men because they either a) fall in love with me or b) don't want to talk to me anymore because I have a bf. This is why it's so hard for me to form lasting friendships with people, because my interest are... I guess masculine and weird?

    I haven't been able to find many "girl" friends who are also into the same things as I do. And when I do find them they always either a) fall in love with me or b) get jealous of me and treat me badly. At this point I've just decided to do most thing on my lonesome. And I don't MIND. As long as I can entertain other people, even if they're strangers, that's good enough for me. I feel kind of inspired to go back into writing/creating web comics... Just silly stories or dramas. :) I think I need to channel my energies in more productive ways than this. Because it's just causing me to feel anxious over dumb things that don't matter in the end...

    See, this is that Satanic force making me feel guilty over JUST HAVING FUN. :( I'm sure if I showed him this Thread he would understand... But yeah, I can't shake off this feeling that I am on the wrong path. Really, I just want to make friends and be able to make other people laugh and be silly with them is what makes me happy. I haven't really spent that much time with others in a long time, I guess I'm just overly excited about expressing myself again after so long... It also doesn't help that I have active imagination which can either create amazing worlds or cause me to self-destruct. A LOT of existential mental fodder for me to think about...

    Thanks all for helping me out. I don't feel comfortable talking about this stuff with my social circle because they don't understand me. They even think I'm weird for liking videogames as much as I do. Sometimes I feel like I'm a stranger in a strange land... Again, thank you all for being so level-headed and composed! It brings peace to my mind. May you all be well! <3 :)

    They even think I'm weird for liking videogames as much as I do. Sometimes I feel like I'm a stranger in a strange land...
    You should tell them they're living in the past, liking videogames is now the trend and the hip thing, as a matter of fact they are the minority in this.
    Game industry is now a juggernaut, and not without a reason.

    I'm not a fan of Blizzard and Wow, but when they started the adverts with Mr. T and Norris, on prime time, even the most notorious "games are for the weird people" advocates had to reconsider their views...

    Same for roleplaying, long gone the good times of sewers and pentagrams :D

    Remember that online, no one knows your a "female" until you intentionally alert them, which is usually a pathetic attempt to cause drama, gain attention and weave chaos.

    Even sadder is that it works pretty much every time.

    Welp. I feel pretty ridiculous now.

    I was just looking for a platform to air my grievances. I now know that this is not the proper place to do it. 

    Not looking for a fight this time around. I hope you guys are doing well. My experience until now here has been fright/enlightening, and I learn as I go.  I want to leave you people with this, that it might help you out as well if you ever find yourself in a time of crisis or in need of deep reflection:

    I had an epiphany as I was going for a walk in the woods today (great exercise if you ever feel like sorting your thoughts out), I used my mind to figure out how I could properly use my imagination to create something purposeful... Like a webcomic or painting.

    As I was reading my posts here I thought: "Wow, my life is actually pretty damn interesting and I make for a funny character." I've never written my thoughts out loud before, but after my experience here I think I should... Only to myself next time, though. ;) Sorry, I'm glad that my life is so entertaining to you Cuddleglass (and I mean it sincerely! It means it has potential! :D). My initial idea was that perhaps my own life experiences could help me into creating an interesting webcomic or story. But then as I thought more deeply about it... How can I be so delighted at my own pain and suffering? This can't be the right way to go. 

    So then I examined my thoughts further, and what surprised me is that an image appeared to me of a "stern looking guy with a grey beard" who told me I should focus my attention deliberately, not to let it wander on silly things and meaningless pursuits. This is what got me into danger in the first place. I allowed for my energies to be scattered without properly directing them first. Error number one.

    Secondly, what I realized is that your imagination can either BREAK you (relentless inner self critic) or MAKE you (utilizing your creative powers to beauty in the world). It is up to you how you use your power. Be gentle with it and use it with the utmost respect, if you can. 

    Thirdly, ALWAYS follow your own Inner Compass and Truth. Do not let society dictate for you what you can do, say or think. You know when something feels right to do? When it brings inner peace and contentment. This is when you know you're making the right decisions in life. AKA: Do not post personal "drama" on public forums. X)

    Well... That's it for now. I want to write more in-depth about my "experiences" in consciousness... This is something MMORPG.com forums has also helped me with, although... Very indirectly. Peace. :)

    That's me by the way, I often look like a angry gray bearded dwarf in real life.

    I tend to look like a bald version of Santa with a goatee....

    Not the same?
