My name is Kelly and my boyfriend and I have known eachother about a year. We met a year ago at a convention we both were at and hit it off instantly. He ended up getting us a room the last night of the convention. Nothing happened except for sleep and he ended up giving me a ride home the next day. I lived in Wisconsin and he in Illionis at the time.

About 8 months ago his dad got transferred to a job in Florida and him and Andy moved down there. His dad traveled a lot between FL and Illinois and eventually was getting ready to move to Ohio. Since Andy was still in school down in Florida he let him stay there and at that point Andy invited me to move in with him. So I traveled by bus for more than 24 hours to get down there and spent 3 months down there with him. August 28th the lease on the apartment was up and he was forced to move to Ohio and I having no where else to go moved back into my parents house. Three months went by and I once again saw him at the convention we met at. It will be another 2 months before we see eachother again.

My problem is that he can be a jerk. He's a real gamer and every night when I call him or IM him he's usually playing a game. I love him to death but it gets so annoying when he ignores me to play a game.

What do I do?

if youre in a long distance relationship, communication is KEY. It's the only thing you have most of the time!! So him choosing his games over you, is totally not cool. He should cherish the time you get to spend talking because it's the only way to keep that kind of relationship strong and working... so you must bring it up to him that it bothers you so much. If he loves you, he'll understand and put down the controller! There's plenty of time without you being in the same place as him for him to play, he should be excited for when he gets that call from you!
If he doesn't listen to you and realize what he's doing, you may need to give him the ultimatum... you, or the games.
good luck
