Hey there,

I need some good advise to stop me from changing my mind about getting my tamas going again.
I did not used to have the time for my tamas due to working full time so i retired them back in 2001, i tried again in 2004 when version one came out i think i played with them for about a month but again due to working they were always on pause poor things!!
Now i have changed my job and only work four days a week and i really want to get back into tama mode!
Another thing is my partner is not over supportive he thinks they are childish, i am 24 next week :furawatchi:
The funny thing is i am extremely supportive of his world of warcraft addiction!!

Please tell me to stop messing about and go dig those tamas out :mametchi:

Do what you want! World of Warcraft is kinda childish, too. I know alot of 10-year olds that play that game.... I also have the same problem with people thinking I'm too old. It was actually keeping me from getting one, but finally I did. I love Tamas, and if you do too, I don;t think you should let him stop you. :D

Your friend says it's childish playing with Tama's yet he plays Warcraft.... You should say it's childish to play Warcraft... ( I'm just kidding) :) Anyways I'm 24 too and I love my new V4.... -_- I work like 3-4 days a week and 4 hours... I just put mine on PAUSE... And when I get back home I start playing again... It's no big deal... ;)

If you want to play with Tamas, and it's not interferring with your priorities, do what makes you happy! :huh: If you have time and want to start being a caretaker again, go for it. :huh:

Your never to old to do something you love. I'm going to be 22 November 20th and I still enjoy these little egg-shaped toys. I do get uncomfortable telling people about it though. Some people aren't understanding about V-pets. About your partner, I think you just should tell him that he doesn't have to like it, its your choice. I don't get why people see Tamagotchi as a kid's only thing, I personally find them as a stress breaker. More stressed out people should try a V-pet. :D

my girlfriend and I both bought one yesterday,
She's 19 and I'm 22.

Some people are just hooked on V-pet games,
myself, I've been playing sims since the day it was released, several virtual pet sites which I left,
I currently still play one petsite tough, best pet site ever.
an adult community and actual pet intelligence.
If your intrested, just mail me for a link.

I’m so glad to hear that some of you are older as well. I am 22 and I just stopped hiding my tama from my husband. He thinks their childish but he’s ok with it I guess….. (As long as the house gets clean)! Thanks for all of you’re honesty about you’re age!!!! :D
