Default Is this marriage?

Asked the GF if I can build a PC, which we kinda don't have room for, but we do, kinda. One would fit (a desk)
She doesn't live here yet but treats the home like it's hers/moving in at the end of the year (which I'm legitimately excited for)

Response:
It's not fair to ask me questions like that. I'm not going to say no and be the "my girlfriend won't let me" person. I honestly don't think there is anywhere to put one and you are right, I'd rather not stuff the house with another big piece of furniture that doesn't have a place.
Besides that, I don't live there and it's not my house either.

Contradicting? If she doesn't want a desk there, I can get over it. Lol. But am I going to have to keep "getting over it"? It's about compromise I guess.

If I didn't ask her and just did it, she'd probably be pissed.
I did ask her and it's not fair to ask her.

WAT


TL:DR, bitches be cray

Contradicting but she is giving you a clue that if its not needed than don't do it.

Now you can be the king of the hill and since its your house, under your name, you can do as you please.

You can counter back and explain that it will be her place of living to and that is why its fair that you guys talk about it, make room for it, etc...etc.. get rid of ****, etc...etc...
She can be annoyed but if things don't' work themselves out now I just wonder what happens when she does move in.

#1, if you don't have "room" for a PC, you might be in some kind of hoarder situation. I could fit a PC anywhere in my house without causing any major inconvenience.
#2, if building a PC starts a conflict, you might need a new GF.

Lulz. I'm not in a hoarder situation. I live in a 900sq ft brick shack with 2 bedrooms, with 2 dog crates, a drum set, and normal living furniture.

I just never know if I'm supposed to ask her if it's okay so she doesn't get pissed when I do what I want, or not ask.

I care about what she thinks, but I also have my own wants/needs.

2 years ago my best friend wanted to buy an is300. His fiance told him you don't need that, so no, you can't spend like 6 grand on a "nice" car. 1 year ago she had him buy her a Pilot Touring for 25k. Last year she divorced him, stating he is selfish. Let that sink in a little bit, and see what a woman telling you how to spend your money can result in.

She actually seems pretty reasonable in that she probably doesn't want the new PC and desk in the house but is willing to let you have your way on it because it's not a huge deal worth fighting over it.

Really? How do you deal with that?

Btw, I just tell my wife in advance when I want to buy new PC parts.

How I read it as well, doesn't like the idea of it, but it's not a big deal.

Your GF has successfully broken into the next enlightened intellectual plane by using the Schrodinger's cat experiment. She hasn't told you that you can't do it. She hasn't told you that you can do it. She's somehow managed to say both without saying either.

Yup, pretty much married life in a nutshell

After awhile she'll decrease the amount of words needed to say no

If you're planning on marrying her, don't do it

Or you can pull the smart move, build a really small pc, use your tv as the monitor, they make small cases these days. Bam you only need to take up like 1/4 of a cubic foot. You make her happy that you're trying to accommodate her and you get your computer

Attach the pc to the tv, and leave the pc nearby.

That's how I read it as well, seems like she has at least some sense of boundaries. That's a good thing.

Your house your rules

Buy the PC. If she has that much of an issue with it then she is a psychopath and you need to dump her immediately
