After readingthis all i can say is...What about those of us who just enjoy giving?
For instance i had a guild member i met(yes fenale) after starting on a nes server with my now ex GF. Would i help her out with gold? Sure i did for my GF and other guildies as well. Why? They were new players didn't have alot and i like to help.
Did i send her pets(as in ONLY in game ones) once...FOR CHRISTMAS. She did the same.
She said she wished she could repay me. My thinking. No need it's nice just having a friend and i said this.
Now after reading this i probably came off as a creep...Never meant it that way. Bug it probably explains why i haven't seen ger online in awhile as well.
Now for me IRL. I give friends male AND female all the time. I have say 2 copies of Martian successor Nadesico(happens more often then you'd think for crazy collectors like me) and i'll give it to a friend who will enjoy it. MALE OR FENALE.
Same for manga or even games and hell even electronic devices.
As i see it if i don't need or can't use why not let someone else have it ya know. Amd if someones a friend what's wrong with helping them.
So yeah it seems guys who do this sorta thing with ill intent give the rest of us a bad name.
Oh and before anyone asks i am kinda awkward with women. Shouldn't matter. Online is online and as far as i'm concerned anyone i befriend say through WoW and i will never neet IRL.
