I laughed so hard when I read this. I could help but imagine him and her arguing back and forth like Howard and his mom from The Big Bang Theory.

Pretty good rule of thumb in general.

My new rule of thumb is that 95% of girls that like and play video games on a regular basis, have something seriously wrong with them. Girls arent supposed to like video games. I mean playing the wii or xbox every once in a while is 1 thing, but girls that spend all day playing WoW or LoL, usually have more problems than you. For instance that girl i talked about earlier was in debt 15k from when she was a retard at age 22 and was spending money on all sorts of dumb stuff. Stay away from gamer girls IMO

That is real dedication to.. WoW dating. To wade back 7 years through a forum to necro a thread that only lasted 2 and a half pages before no one cared. Simply astonishing.
Im proud to now be a part of what you have achieved.

Pro tip, its probably more efficient to just join into the current conversations rather than farm post count this way.

My guess is that the percentage of relationships still going strong is very high among the group that are still playing WoW, but much lower for the group that has moved on from the game. The only person who could stand being around a WoW player in 2019 is another WoW player.

i expect puberty hit for many . . .

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.
