    What do elf males or human females get out of this?

    Because promoting race mixing is a mandatory agenda these days and the game industry isn't exception. Check any advertisement or movie, there is always a mixed couple these days to pander to all consumer demographics

    There probably is an explanation what happened to Arwen when she gives up her (relative) immortality? Like..she then only lives as long as a human would from then on? (Also probably an explanation how you give it up )
    Aragon was from the Numenor line wich was blessed with longer life.

    Some pairings just work, real life often sees white guys and asian girls together for instance. I'm guilty as charged, I'm asian and my husband is white.

    I enjoy Human male + Elf female pairings in fiction, what do I get out of it? Girls generally like when our men/boyfriends are approved of by other women. We ask our friends what they think, we look for other women checking our guys out, it's just how we evolved, a guy that can get a girl that is beyond his "league" must have something going for him! And imagine if an elf girl likes a guy, he must have loads of things going for him!
    Generally the guys I know don't care nearly as much what their friends think, if they find their lady beautiful, well, everyone elses thoughts no longer matter!

    As for the guy part I think that's simpler, elf women are hot. lol

    well elves are always hot, like always hot. so i get why a human would go elf.

    on the other hand OP yeah i think elves go through a "human phase" in their early 200s where they marry a human to piss off their father. since humans live significantly less time than an elf, it's over once they're in their 300s.

    win win really

    So far I've only seen the Three Sisters, Valeera trying to hook up Shaw, Shandris and that human guy, and then Modera and Aethas

    Let's pivot away from discussing real-world racial and identity politics and instead focus on fictional relationships between species in literature or other media.

    His fall was not a small one.
    We did but build his pedestal,
    A narrow and a tall one."

    Just look at the player base. 95% of them would like to date an elf.

    I think the bottom line is wish fulfilment. Elves are attractive, humans are writing the stories, humans are reading the stories.

    Same reason there are lots of stories about humans and vampires in relationships.

    I mean, what's wrong with wanting to date a fantasy race that is basically made up of hot humans with pointy ears? I'm pretty sure anyone would find the idea at least appealing, gamer or not.
    How could I ever have loved someone so weak? Let us hope Arator did not inherit your cowardice.

    what about human females dating night elf men. imagine a movie about it where all real human females fall for a cool legolas guy. blockbuster incoming.

    The WoW lore specific explanation is pretty fucking simple.

    Time+geographical proximity+looking alike.

    Humans and Elves, specifically High Elves have been living in close geographical proximity for about 3000 years, during which there have been substantial political, military and cultural interaction to the point of sharing a religion etc. And humans and High Elves look sufficiently alike that they could be just really ethnic varieties of the same race.

    Keep in mind that Dalaran always held a fairly large Elven presence too.

    Furthermore these interactions and relationships are more prevalent on the upper ends of both societies, princes, mages, generals because the upper echelons of both societies were more likely to interact, study together, do political stuff, go on military campaigns etc. than a farmer from Silvermoon and farmer from Westfall.

    The real life out of lore explanation. It's a literary trope.

    Yeah...Last time that happened in WoW the end result was the several hundred years old Kael'thas losing part of shit because a teenage Jaina ignored him. :P

    Oh....So...Twilight.

    She either stands as Rhonin's loyal wife or she is Jaina's puppet, or Sylvanas' puppet. Now she sticked to Alleria and follows her.

    The only difference is that Christianity prefers when Christian has intercourse for multiple times to have many children to teach of Christian ways.
    So she has a husband, a loyal best friend, and a complicated family. Why doesn't she again?

    I'd like to see more Troll/Human couples, but that would probably cause some problem between the Alliance/Horde

    Unlike her sisters, she didn't dominate her husband and now she is totally dependent on children. Of course, good mother should focus her life on her kids but that's not what independent women do.
