I rarely play video games but I enjoy them once in a while. I've always said one of the best ways to get to know someone and break the ice on a date is to play video games.

It's a great way to get a feel for the other person when you're in stressful and challenging situations. It's just a thrill! You learn so much about the other person. How they react to problems, how well they work with other people, etc.

know why else it would work? same reason as if you met a girl at a concert or at a baseball game, you have a common interest.

This is probably the main reason.

You can make really good friends through gaming though. Last year my TF2 gaming community had a meetup. Most of the people I had never met before IRL but we were all so immediately comfortable with each other it was as if we'd known each other for years (which I suppose we really have).

Online games FTW! Warcraft is my absolute favorite game, under Twisted metal of course..

I agree. Coffee with a nerd girl is a snoozefest and about as bland as you can be without being in a generic move. Taking on a raid in WoW or beating noobs in SFxT co-op is far more intense.

True, but then again, we're talking about WoW women here...

I can believe it. I used to play WoW for several years and I made many friends along the way. Some I have met in person, others I haven't. But I have seen plenty of couples playing together. In fact one of the reason I played for so long was because it was the only way for me and my sister to stay in contact. She is now dating and living with a guy that she met playing games online and they are very happy together.

and despite the large difference between number of overall users, there are just as many women on the WoW as there are on dating sites

@nijd

I disagree completely. Many of the people that I played WoW with and now play SWToR with are married, but their significant other does not play the game. It's easily 75% of the people that I've played with that fall into that category.

Online Gaming is a good way to meet those with a similar interest to yourself. Nothing wrong with it.

LuckyDave, to conduct an accurate survey, you don't need every single person to respond to the survey. It could have been a survey posted on a WOW message board or something.

I met 2 people on a game at approximately the same time as they met each other on the game. They're engaged and spend months at a time staying with each other now (but they're still citizens of different countries, at least until they're out of uni and can afford to move somewhere together). It's really cute :D

Ummmm. Very first "Fact" mega fail.

Match is WAY bigger than eharmony and reportedly has over 20 million members.

They didn't survey me! I guess I didn't log in that day.

I'm married to another WoW player. :)

Ok, just wanted to say this is really skewed data. The WoW gamers that likely were a large part of the surveys were definitely lying about their relationship status. People who play this game live their whole lie in a fantasy world and almost every gamer you see claims to be dating someone.

That being said.. I met my girlfriend playing a video game and we've been together for 4 years..

However, I'm not stupid enough to believe that 85.1% percent of the gamers I've encountered are in a relationship. It's definitely closer to the other way around completely. I have the social ability to be in a relationship. 85.1% of WoW players have the social ability of cattle.

Wait, you really surveyed WoW players? How many of them did you survey? What age category? Which server? Or did you -actually- survey all 12 million? (lol) Even if you did survey all 12 million, I guarantee you many of them lied about their relationship status.

Been living with the love of my life for 4 years now. Met in Warmaul Hill in Nagrand (a place in WoW for those non-WoW people). I'd say we're a pretty happy WoW-dating success story :D

Can't really say it's a good thing.
