How To Get A Gamer To Like You In 9 Ways
Do you have a crush on a gamer and wondering what it's going to take to get them to like you back? We have 9 ways to get that gamer to show an interest in you!
Disclaimer: This has been written as a bit of fun and should not be taken as solid dating or love life advice. Someone should like you for who you are. Anyway, on to the list to snag yourself a gamer!
1. Show interest in their game
We aren't talking about showing an interest in them, we already know you like them! We mean show an interest in their game, that they're playing.
You don't need to be a professional at Fortnite or Call of Duty to get their attention. Just knowing a little bit about the game will most likely surprise them. If you don't know about the game, just do a little Google search and find out something about it, to bring up in conversation next time you speak them.
2. Get involved in their game
Play the same game they're into! It may mean you having to fork out a bit of money to get yourself a new Playstation, gaming PC or new game, but you can't put a price on love!
Hopefully their favorite game is Angry birds and you just need to download a free app, from the app store.
3. Ask for advice about games
If you are playing a game they like, ask for advice about what the best thing to do at a certain part is. Ask them what the best setup is or even what the game settings they are using. You can also ask them "what's a good game to play?".
This is good for two reasons, because it helps with having more conversations and will also make them feel good giving out advice.
4. Always be supportive even when they're really bad at gaming
This one is super important! If you see them get smashed in online gaming, just blame the lag or say that the other person was cheating.
Act really surprised or happy about them every time they beat someone or complete a stage.
Never tell them that they aren't good or need to get better at the game. Although if you need to give them some tips or you would like to get better, we have an article of 7 ways to get better at gaming right here!
5. Don't ever disagree with them on any gaming topics, ever.
They are the gamers that you are trying to get to like you. You shall never challenge anything they say in the field of gaming. Even if you know they are wrong, you just keep that to yourself.
They have probably lost teammates over a slight disagreement in a party chat during a game. Don't think they won't cut you off in a heartbeat, if you disagree with their point of view on a gaming topic.
6. Give them gamer gifts
A gamer would love nothing more than to be gifted an in-game currency or an online present for their game. This might be points that they could use to unlock new skins or upgrades for their games.
7. Give them IRL gamer gifts
You could get them a t-shirt or maybe a Pop Funko of their most beloved gaming character. This also lets them know that you pay attention to what they like.
Next time they look at that item, they'll think of you.
8. Don't use game time for chit-chat
There is nothing worse than when someone is in an intense game and one of their teammates starts to talk about what they did on the weekend or something. The whole time they're trying to concentrate on not dying and trying to block the sound out. Then they die and instantly go off at the other person for talking.
It could just be that they are bad at the game, but they will still hate the other person for using the airwaves for non-tactical communication. So keep all communication channels during gaming free, of any nonsense.
9. Beat them at their own game (SUPER RISKY MANEUVER)
Oh wow, this one is super ridiculously risky. You could pretend you are really bad at the game and in your time off, you practice as much as you can and become really good.
Then out of the blue one day you challenge them to a 1-v-1. They would probably laugh at even the thought of it. Then once you get them in the game, you totally pwn them!
They will either never speak to you again or idolize you for the rest of your life. Execute this with extreme caution.
Hopefully that gamer notices you and wants you to be their Player 2. If not, there's plenty of other gamers in the sea.
