Going by the handle "Jjivani," the female member claimed to be a 26-year-old Canadian aerobics enthusiast whose favorite thing is playing World of Warcraft as a member of the horde.
Therefore, there are websites for gamers who need dates, and there are websites for people who want to date gamers. It's not really clear in the surprisingly inept world of video game dating sites, a web of false promises, Google search bait and general crappiness.
Shag A Gamer is the site that inspired this miserable trawl.
It got some press earlier this week thanks to its snicker-ready premise. Central Mystery of their Site: They seem to believe that all gamers are straight.
Gamers fed up with logging onto normal dating Web sites need no longer worry about having to cater to potential dates' interests such as "long walks on the beach," "candlelit, romantic dinners," and "anything outdoorsy." A new service has launched that caters to people whose turn-ons include "raiding the Blackfathom Deeps for epic gear," "farming the Scarlet Monastery," and "bringing doom to the evil Horde." World of Datecraft (due to heavy traffic, the site is intermittently offline), an online dating service aimed at the nearly 7 million World of Warcraft players, provides the icebreaker for WOW fans to host their own meet and greets.
Members submit profiles with basic info (similar to Match.com) such as age, gender, location, and an optional photo, as well as descriptions of physical appearance, lifestyle, and professional life.
While such a service seems like an answer to many-a-lonely-PC-gamer's dream, men shouldn't expect to become level 60 lotharios overnight.Currently, there are just more than 700 users, approximately 600 of which are males.(Note: It's probably not a good idea to mention your "burning crusade" when trying to lock down a date.) As for the site's legitimacy, the owners claim that "thousands of people meet on our site daily and go on to date and start relationships.We've also had hundreds of marriages across many borders." However, the owners offer no proof to back up their claims.A cursory examination of World of Datecraft yielded somewhat unimpressive results.Only six users were online, only one of which was female.
