During the summer, I met a boy about my age. We were at a party playing Super Smash Brothers Brawl, and he picked Snake. I love Metal Gear so I struck up a conversation with him about it. We quickly became good friends afterwards, staying up all night to talk about videogames and getting together to play as often as we could.
Well,... It looks like the initial spell of the relationship has waned, and you are confronted your first crisis (if your relationship survives this, there will be many others).
Basically your relationship needs to grow, or it will die. It can't afford to stay the same as in the beginning. So I suggest that you find more common ground than just Metal Gear, and diversify the kind of things you do together. Organize stuff together, create some shared memories, get to know each other better. It's a bit too soon to feel you know each other too well.
is this for real...? daaaayum
I'd agree with this post. All YOU can really do is reach out to him in new and different ways. Unfortunately, relationships by their nature can't be one sided and he will eventually have to make a move to follow you or its not going to last.
a woman who loves Metal Gear..jeezes christ, i sometimes i hate life.
OP here, well...he broke up with me, pulled the ol' "I still like you, but we're just going to be friends for a while, then if things work we'll get back together" trick. Then it was amazing, we went right back to quoting Metal Gear like crazy, we had fun conversations and lots of hugs. But it just hurt to be around him, to not see that spark in his eyes.
Did he ever talk about other games? Geez, why keep talking about Metal Gear? There are so many good games out there. (Yakuza, Uncharted, GTA 4, and some HOT rpgs)
I somehow sense that Metal Gear was not the point of this thread,...
Dude, we talked about other stuff, it's just that Metal Gear is his most favorite franchise (mine is Mother), and it was something we could both relate to since we'd both played all the games obsessively.
>just find a the Pain, I'd be all over that sucker!!
