It's not you, Its me.

Listen... I've been super busy at work lately. Your awsome, you really are. Listen, Its not you it's me.

Im going to break up with you wow. I think we have both changed. Quite a lot to be honest. It is not anybodys fault. But we just don't really match up together any more.
Like I said, its not really anybody's fault. We both tried hard to make it work. You tried and turn our relationship really casual, and that was cool. I even claimed you where the best you had ever been. But we both know, that was not the entire truth. There where a lot of factors, that played in.
My life fitted so well around you, and your around me, back then.
Things have changed.
I'm not the player you knew, and you aren't the game I fell in love with. We where both trying to pretend to be something and someone, we are not.
I pretended I was still the hard-core raiding type of player. When in fact, I had not really raided anything seriously since back when Lich king hardmode was something we spend the summer doing.
You, on the other hand, kept promising to change, to become cataclysmically different, and interesting.

Let's face it, you never did.

When you went Cataclysm, and threw on one new dress, you really didn't change. You just dazzled me for a short while. 
I'm not blaming you, you tried to be what I thought I wanted. You aren't any longer. And I'm not what you want, either.

You want tanks, and healers that are willing to put up with whining and moaning from strangers. It's really a SICK fetish you have there. I thought I could be that, but in reality I just stuck with the people I knew. I was not as outgoing as you had hoped I would be. On the other hand, you claimed that staying with the same people where what you wanted, but you didn't. You may have given me bonuses for doing stuff with my guildies but you had not changed. You still wanted me to PuG.

I realise I was not easy to understand. I claimed I wanted hard new content, you tried and make your dungeons hard. Then the others you where seeing, started to bemoan that the dungeons where hard.

You where caught in a tough situation, and tried to make the best of it. unfortunatly - in the end- you ended up cutting me off entirely.

But there where other things too. Stuff, that you could do nothing about. Me. I changed. I was no longer happy, spending 7-8 hours a day in front of the computer. I couldn't do that any longer. I've grown old, and tired. Now-a-days when I get home, I don't have the energy and time, you demand of me, at least not what you demand of me, so I can get what makes *me* happy.

And then there was Mrs Dwism. You remember her. You two used to have a casual hanging-out- sort of relationship. I was cool with that. Anyway. Mrs Dwism and me.. ehm well...
We've gotten pregnant. Mostly her, but i'm a guilty party too. That has done a lot to take my focus away from you. And i know this hurts now, but I am very happy that im going to be a daddy-dwism. Its a gurrrl!!

Hopefully someday, me and mini-me will pick up your latest version and we will play together the three of us. For now, other stuff is on my horizon.
Stuff like baby clothes
baby toys

And other stuff.

I loved every second of our 5 year relationship, and I would not trade the years of /played  time for ANYTHING. But I've changed, and its time to realise, that the two of us have grown apart.



  1. All the very best to you, Mrs Dwism and little miss-to-be :)

  2. Thank you! I've decided to tell Mrs Dwism that the baby *will* get a dwarf inspired name... like Moira.
    That is BOUND to go over well

  3. Congratulations on your wonderful news!

  4. Congratulations!!! :D

    I've enjoyed reading your blog and will be sad to see you leave. But it's a very mature decision to make and I wish you the best of luck.

    (And OMG that is the CUTEST Yoda toy I have EVER seen. I want one SO BAD.)

  5. Thank you janyaa ^^^

    and don't worry jayd, I've never been able to just stfu, so i doubt i'll stop. It will just be about other stuff... Once all the dust get settled.

  6. I was wondering why you were so quiet, but this was just lovely news! Best of luck with the new one and life and everything.


  7. Aww! Best of luck Dwism :) Massive congratulations :) Very best wishes to all of you :) And hope you'll let us know how you're doing :)
    Pro tip. Tie dusters to the babies clothes when she starts to crawl.. it won't hurt when she slips _and_ your floor will get cleaned :D

  8. Seems like you got your prios straight to me ;)
    Enjoy the new phase of your life and all the best - until you return!

  9. @lar; sorry if I got you worried ;) Thank you
    @issy:protip=PRO tip! love it
    @syl: I highly doubt this the right way to prioritize :) My goal is to win the lottery, so I can skip work and take care of the baby, while STILL gaming! Live the dream!

  10. Congrats on your new achievement to both! ;P
