everytime i try to make a conversation with my partner i often easily get upset because 1) he is not listening to me 2) he is busy with the computer and 3) he is addicted to the computer!... how will i change his attitude? i want our relationship to work.

Well, being a computer addict is so hard to take it from him. But if you try to understand what he play, maybe its the right way to make him happy. or if you like to join him then just try it. lol.... I have a friend here and his partners are both computer addict but they are happy with their relationship. Just like what they say "If you can't beat them, Join them"... lol

the only solution is talk to him,tell him you feel upset about his addiction of computer.there must be chance that he is away from his computer,isnt it?my friend used to have a similar problem that her bf spent too much time on pc games to listen to her,pay attention to her.but after talking about it for a few times,they now work it out.i am sure he will listen to you if he really cares about you.cheer up!

I can understand how it can be hard to concentrate on more than one thing at a time. Perhaps you should have a schedule where you do things together and stay offline, like tv night on a night a program is on that you both like. Snuggle on the couch with popcorn or pizza. Maybe he could be online while you are doing other things, laundry, dishes, and vice versa.
