Looking to meet the love of your life online? Try to be open-minded, because they might be an orc.

The tongue-in-cheek curiosity seekers at Online University compiled a ton of online dating stats, and as it turns out, those looking to hook up over the web may actually fare better questing in World of Warcraft than sifting through eHarmony profiles.

I laughed at this. tongue.gif + rolleyes.gif

The comments are also hilarious. laugher.gif

Best laugh I have had in a while tongue.gif

What if air is actually poisonous and it actually takes ~80 years to kill us?
What if water is an addictive drug and the withdrawals kill us a few days later?
What if we are close to death and we are living life in a flash at this moment?

The guy above is actually in the minority in terms of demographics for MMORPGs. The majority is actually, like with all of gaming, casual gamers. It's hardly surprising at all because WoW in it's gameplay mechanics, 'forces' you to be social and often they get comfortable with people in their guild and thus share real life stories and experiences.

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.
