...that playing 30-60 minutes a day makes me a "casual" player.

Bad idea.

How many spouse points did you lose with that one?

Hubby and I solved the problem by gaming together.

That's barely playing at all.
Jedi vs. Sith, Page 97, column 2, paragraph 4, line 1:

Prior to the Battle of Ruusan, the Jedi used crystals from many different sources, and ignited lightsabers in every known hue, including purple, orange, and gold.

It takes 30 mins just to get from one planet to the next.

I truly wished it worked this way at my house. My wife is a lost cause when it comes to gaming. Unfortunately she thinks this game along with every other mmo that i've played are stupid.

Comments are being made by my better half because I haven't set her machine up again after redecorating........

She really wants to get on TOR!
Didn't we just leave this party?

My solution: Only get involved with women who share my intrests. It makes finding things to do together awesome, seriously my lady drags me to tabletop game stores and nags me to pay attention to the game when I try to make sure she isn't feeling ignored.

Found her at a D&D game.

Plus, gaming gear being a "romantic gift" is just awesome.

It does require having to accept that I may not at all times be the most hardcore gamer in the couple.
For further ramblings and samples of my fictions go here.

Big part of the problem is a lot of women (not all by any stretch) think that you need to "grow up". Some feel that you always have to be changing in life or they need to be changing you. They can never just "be". Also, they fail to see that it's a hobby, or type of entertainment you enjoy. If you were not doing this you would be doing some other hobby. If you can't find a life partner that understands this or respects your "you time" your relationship is going to be full of the same. You also know she will be the type to talk behind your back to her friends about the "childish" things you do.

Good luck.
