Woman prefer gaming over sex and shopping

Firstly I just wanna open the floor by saying that surely their partners must be doing it wrong. I mean, really, really?! The shopping one I totally get, in fact, my hubby likes shopping more than me, but the sex one, surely…

Apparently, this sad state of affairs cannot be blamed on situations as shown in the above meme. According to a study done by Doritos (erh?) “50 per cent of men readily admit to frequent online gaming, a surprising 49 per cent of women confess that they too are addicted to Internet games. And while men spend 22.3 per cent of their time online playing games, women trump them, whiling away 23.2 per cent of their time online playing games.”

Now for the interesting parts, “Revealingly, the study showed that not only are women just as keen on gaming as men - but that the majority would rather spend time playing on their gadgets than having sex…what is perhaps more staggering is the news that female gamers would rather play online games than go shopping.”

The study further shows that while men mostly play online because they want to compete, women like to play online for the social benefits of gaming. According to the study the fairer sex wants to water the virtual plants rather than blowing stuff up. “So while women download apps, solve problems or exchange bushels of hay on the popular Facebook app Farmville, men, who were found to be far less selective in their gaming habits, are more likely to be shooting up virtual opponents in an online war game (over a third play regularly), or gambling, with one in five admitting to logging on to such sites.”

The last aspect the Doritos study looked into can be summed up in these words, “together alone” as described by relationship therapist Douglas Weiss. According to him, “These days, people are on their mobiles at dinner; they spend hours on the computer or watching TV; and they are more connected to their Facebook friends than to the person they promised to love and cherish until death do them part. Technology is interrupting our relationships and allowing us to avoid each other. It has become a way of avoiding real relationships and intimacy.”

My conclusion, according to this article, I am so not a woman, since I don’t prefer gaming over sex, I hate shopping and I play online only to compete. FML?

What’s your take on all this?
