Having carried a rather specific stigma through the 80s and 90s among popular culture, computer gamers are now considered "chic". World of Warcraft in particular continues to be one of the most popular multiplayer online role-playing games, expanding its list of subscribers and long-term gamers (although there has been something of a dip over the last 18 months). A game that combines the unique enjoyment of a fantasy world with the ability to interact and socialise with millions of other people, World of Warcraft has given birth to a specific group of fans with specific personality features.
But, is there any substance to the idea that a Warcraft gamer is going to be a more polished lover - in every sense of the word - than their protein gulping, shot-putting equivalents in "the real world"? Despite any preconceived ideas you might have, a Warcraft Gamer might surprise you with their outstanding skills in terms of poetic dialect and prowess in more private areas of your lives :-) Here are a few reasons why:
Outside of the school-based communities that roam the world of WoW and act their age, constantly starting arguments and breaking the group dynamic, there are many extremely nice people on WoW. When you are dealing on a daily basis with so many patience-testing circumstances and people, you tend to become a nicer person when you get to your refuge world. When you get beyond the pick-up group you met through, you will see that Warcraft gamers are a nice company, willing to chat with you for hours and ready to lend a friendly ear, be it in real-life or via a messenger.
Just as you jump into the game looking to team up with fellow Horde or Alliance allies and slaughter all those who stand in your way, others are signing up actively looking for love. This means they are willing to put in the hard work and hours that are required to make an online relationship work. This can be the problem for many people, but WoW gamers are used to long distances and taking things slowly.
