I haven't but I know several who have several are married, living together, or stopped playing after they got together so who knows.
I met another (female) friend outside of WoW and found out she played later. Smoking hot (she plays Ice Hockey which keeps her fit) but socially she fits the WoW mould...
We also met in a city that neither of us grew up in (moved 1700kms) but she moved back over Christmas and isn't coming back...
Tbh - ok, those that raid... you have a bunch of folks you get used to hanging around with in game. You spend probably 10 hours a week with these people, it's quite natural, normal and human to "get to know" them a bit. In a work environment "getting to know" "that guy/girl in ????'s sale's department" who you ring 4/5 times a day is quite acceptable. If they ever had business reason to visit your company you'd probably do lunch/drinks or similar.
Now these folks are actually a bit more closely bound, you "need" them for a form of (moderately) social entertainment. Get talking for a bit after raids, things click, friendships are made, beers arranged and it's suddenly "normal" socialising. Considering how much the internet permeates modern living now "meeting people on the internet" really shouldn't be so stigmatised (better than it was by a long shot but still...).

Not in real life, there is one that lives near me but I have no desire to pursue anything unless for some reason Tampa is the host city for Blizzcon.
Met 4 of my female friends outside the game. After meeting them in game. Three of them were from my area though. I'm not really into the relationship thing. Got pretty huge social anxiety and depression and i can't get over it right now. So why bring this on others..
No, every female i meet ingame either turns out to be a dude irl or is the biggest bitch ever or just has no interest in me... In my last guild there were 2 girls, one just couldent be arsed to talk to me and the other one was like... AN ENEMY!! Didnt click at all. Thank fucking god that bitch left the ream !<3
I'm single, I play WoW, I've met a guy and he actually flew up to see me (uh, because I'm awesome). I don't actively seek out guys ingame to date, and I don't consider myself "undesirable". I've actually known two couples that met on WoW and got married, and our raid leader is currently engaged to a girl he met on WoW six years ago. They're all awesome people.
I met my current boyfriend over WoW! he was in the guild as a substitute raider. We somehow ended up leveling alts together and things carried on. After a year, we met each other in person and THEN decided we would try out a long distance relationship. We see each other in between semesters for the entire break and are in constant communication in between. We know each other's friends and act like any other couple.
WARNING!! Before readers get any funny ideas: that internet safety stuff they tell you in school is true. If you plan on meeting anyone, they will NOT be the same person you thought they were and you'll learn things you didn't know about them. Be cautious. When I travel to see people (which I do often) I personally have them send my mother a picture of their driver's license every time and will call her every night. No one has refused, and there's no reason to unless they're hiding something.
