If there’s one thing we know, it’s that girlfriends love video games. 

1. You don't give her a long answer when she asks what you're playing. You know she doesn't care.

2. You look at your girlfriend every time you shout just to make sure she hasn’t completely lost it from your screaming.

3. You have to convince your girlfriend that you don’t have anger issues.

4. No matter how late your girlfriend stays up, you can always stay up later.


5. You have super human hearing after playing hours of video games on very low volume.
