My partner games but I read so it kind of balances out. We spend most evenings cuddled on the couch. He draws while I read and we both watch tele. We have a date night every couple of weeks. Go to the movies and have a nice night out. I dunno really. We don't really plan much, just do what we feel like. Some nights we have my grandma over and settle in for a good game of rummikub :)

I'm just gonna list off dates I've done and maybe you'll like a couple of the ideas haha
I like to go hiking, go to waterfalls, the ocean, rivers, lakes, etc.
Camping, rafting, floating the river in inner tubes
Ice skating (we've been roller skating a few times too)
Making dinner together
Going to a new city for the day
Parks (rose gardens are pretty!)
The zoo/ aquarium
random drives to new places
Poetry slam nights
Sometimes, you have to try more than once.
Alice came to a fork in the road
"Which road do I take?" she asked.
"Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat.
"I don't know," Alice answered.
"Then," said the cat, "It doesn't matter."
We spend time together but don't necessarily DO anything, just talk, we talk a LOT! .About EVERYTHING.
And watch TV series' together, and we go for walks together, bimble around town, drink a lot of coffee, go to markets, galleries... we are very much similar people though, so unless we're doing work we're together doing something because we like to do the same things.
Bath time is always fun. And sex of course :)
and we argue, but then we always make up (the making up is my favourite bit, it's almost worth the argument over nothing!) and tons and tons of cuddles. Sometimes we just cuddle up and read or go to coffee and read...
I think you might need to say something to him, like it's fine he plays on his PS3, but would he rather spend all his time on that and not see you? I used to be similar wth the internet but I realised and cut it down after a couple arguments on the matter, and it was completely worth it. An hour or two here and there is probably fine but he should want to put that aside for you from time to time.
Maybe tinker with it, "oh **** it's broken we don't have the money to fix it, get a new one, lets spend time together" I would, lol.
Mine is a 29 year old gamer (only 80s and 90s consoles though). Try explaining that you were late for a party because he needed to complete Castlevania 4 hahaha.
I really suck at video games, but I actually really enjoy watching him play. We go to the pub quite a lot, as we're both real ale lovers, we go for walks, go swimming and we learn Finnish (that's how we met). We also like to cook together and watch TV/internet videos. Also SEXY TIME hehehehehe.
We watch films together, have a couple of TV series we watch together, sometimes we'll just sit there taking really stupid pictures together, have playfights in the kitchen when I'm cooking for us, Playstation, I'll go to his gigs with him when he has one.
We barely ever have any money so we just do what we can at home.
My boyfriend and I usually watch tv and movies together, go into town to check out festivals, live music or comedy, go to the pub, go out to dinner or stay home and try out a new recipe together, hang out at the beach, go bike riding, go camping, random short road trips... I wouldn't say we're hardcore gamers but we both like gaming and appreciate our 'me' time but our relationship comes first and when he wants to get out of the house and hang out then I go, and vice versa. We're both students and don't have a lot of money but there's usually lots of things to go see and do for free or cheap :)

My fiance and I don't ever really have much money either so we find stuff to do at home. Last night we played 21 with poker chips and watched trashy TV (Don't Tell The Bride, Snog Marry Avoid, Sun, Sea and Suspicious Parents)
We have TV series we watch together, we play on the Xbox together, playfight, cook together, snuggle in bed and listen to music, take the dog for a walk and sometimes we get in the car and just take random roads :)
You can't lose hope when it's hopeless.
You gotta hope more,
then put your fingers in your ears and go,
"Blah blah blah blah!"
Gosh good question. We don't really do that much together. I'm usually in bed as I tire out from looking after our son while he watches tv. I don't know how me being home with out son is harder than him being at work all day. I'm always tired. The time we spend together is mostly to eat dinner and do shopping.
Lol its comforting to know that the things we do aren't that different (although to be fair im asking a similar group of people to myself!) i just hear about some of the girls from my work going out as couples almost every night and always having these fantastic plans - when im like uhh well we go out for chicken wings on a weds??? XD
Maye they aren't happy in each others company so have to go out as relationships become longer the fun stuff becomes less. You fall into habits. Plan a date night once a month to spice things up and make things a little more interesting.
Dinners out, Coffees, Walks, Drives, Movies, Cocktails, Nights out, Dinners in, Lunches out, Wine & Cheese, Hotel stays, art galleries, more eating out, watching documentarys on tv, watching programs on ipad in bed, watching the news, more wine, talking about work (hes not a 'gamer') - These either with the kids or them being babysat xxx

My boyfriend and I are both gamers so it's not really an issue for us, haha. We do a ton of other things together too....pretty much everything. Shopping, walking my dog, taking my dog to his house to play with his two dogs (lots of pets haha), spending some time with his family, etc. And lots of time in the bedroom.
We're planning on getting engaged soon and married next year, and I hope it doesn't change things too much when we move in together.
