Recently my old college roommate got out of a 4-year relationship. It absolutely devastated her and the thought of looking for someone else was beyond her capabilities.
She was always a big player of World of Warcraft and used the game as a sort of coping mechanism while she went through the motions of the break-up. Before she knew it, she had met a single local guy around her age that she really hit it off with.
After meeting a few months later and going on a handful of dates, the two were in a relationship. They've been going strong for a little over a semester now.
One of her friends actually found love through the game as well, though he wasn't as lucky. The girl he found happened to live in Finland and was at least ten years older than him. He has a lot of hurdles to jump.
I've never been big on the RPGs and fantasy games. I know people go wild about it and there are trading cards and conventions and what have you. I did date a guy who was heavily into Starcraft. When I came over one night, he only wanted me to watch him play. It was weird.
Do you play any of these RPGs and have you ever found someone on there--whether it be a crush or an SO?
