It goes a little deeper. My last ex I met online, and she was afraid to tell people she was female. And I only found out because she pretty much confided in me that she was a girl. Turned out she was local and we hit it off. Then since we were dating, she used me as a safety net for the hounding of dudes on vent and in-game. Since we've broken up, she hangs out in vents as the only girl and letting everyone know she is a girl online is priority #1.

I must admit that I met my girlfriend on WoW. Oddly enough when I first met her in game she scared me to death. But over the course of almost 2 years we chatted back and forth a great deal then one night she just came out to me with how she felt. Within 1-2 months I was on a plane to Pennsylvania and I spent a week with her. We have been inseperable for almost 2 1/2 years now. I live in Arizona and work has been very slow so I havn't been able to afford to get out to see her often. But we are always on the yahoo voice chat, from when I get home from work until bedtime. We also use skype. I've been out to see her 5 or 6 times for 2-3 weeks at a time and it's been great. We are wanting to get married but for now things are on hold due to both of us failing at finances.

Yes she is a real girl. Yes she's hot (in my eyes at least). And she is the only good thing in my life.

I don't play WoW, and yes, it's easy to get a laugh at MMORPG's because of the stereotype but in reality, they're the minority.
A good chunk of MMORPG players are in the mid 30s, have working lives, often professionals, mothers etc...
And due to the social factor, attracts far more female players + the fact they are far less discriminated against and less intimidated vs. FPS games.

I would rep you so hard, if I could. The best post I've read this week.

Not that I am some kind of stereotype standing up for WoW, I play it for 2-5 hours per week, but as a gamer, I wish more people took this understanding on the MMORPG industry.
