    You need to become familiar with the definition of the word "generalization".

    He was going to fly out here for a week. My friend took the week off of work, made plans and arrangements and everything, and the guy never showed.

    My friend was devastated. Those of us who knew about this told her to just end the 'relationship' and move on but she really liked the guy and somehow forgave him. A few months later he was going to come and meet her again, and AGAIN he didn't show, and AGAIN she forgave him.

    That's when she decided that she was going to go out and meet him instead. Everyone kept telling her how that was an unbelievably stupid and dangerous thing to do but she did it anyway.

    When she finally met the guy she realized why he blew her off the other times. 'He' was actually a 23 year old girl. They still liked each other though and in the end 'he' came back with my friend and they moved in together. The two of them and the kids now live together and 'he' went through gender reassignment treatments to become a guy for real.
    That's too unbelievable to not be true.

    Also i kind of think its pathetic that guys pursue girls in a video game. Anytime a female would want special treatment from me i was like nooope. Had a girl bitch for 30 minutes because i got a item and she was begging me for it in whispers. Cant stand it. Sad thing is, most guys on wow are so forever alone that they comply with these wishes.
    Your contempt for women is fairly dripping down the page.

    I meet plenty of guys in WoW but nobody I want to date. LDR's are just too much of a pain in the ass
    The only thing pathetic is the woman cheating on her husband over a video game. I outed her and helped her husband nip the problem in the bud. Every action has a consequence, she learned this the hard way.

    You know who didn't deserve it? Her husband, he deserved better than some tramp who was having fun cheating on wow behind his back. She was a slut, was outed, and reaped the consequences.

    The community whined and bitched and cried, they stamped their little feet and demanded faster expansion releases. They don't get to complain now that expansions are shorter.

    By "pursuing" do you mean "climbing in her window and snatching her people up?" If so, yes.

I don't want to know what behemoth lies on the other side of that mic.
    I've met many dozens of women in MMOs whom people like you would be pining for silently if you met them. On their behalf, thank you for not trying to do so. They're better off without snotty, contemptuous people making hate-ridden assumptions about them.

    I had a guildie that lived like 2 mins from my parents place. I knew the area he was in so well that it was kind of creepy.

    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...

    This I can well believe.

    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...).

    Where ever the Regent-Lord needs me to be
    Most women I meet are older yeah not my type. I did meet one amazing beautiful girl and she lived two states away. But she out of my league. So I never persuade that. Also I am not big in to online dating.

    Pretty much this. My gf is the one who got me into WoW. Funny thing is I had actually not known it existed even though I played Warcraft III pretty avidly.

    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 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.
