On a completely unrelated note, I just found out there’s a World Of WarCraft dating site, where WoW gamers can, er, hook up. I’m not making this up, it’s called World Of DateCraft.
The site’s pretty new, with beta warning labels and tempting links without content (One of them is an intriguing murloc link! But nothing’s there yet), but there seem to be quite a few users. I’m not saying that I spent all morning on the site, but the profiles seem to be real people, who really play WarCraft. Romantic WoWers tell their faction, race, level and in-game professions on their profile, as well as the usual location, job, marital status info from other online dating sites.
This profile, though, cracked me up.
Laughable requests to exchange cyber for gold aside, I think this is a pretty good idea. You already have something pretty major in common, so you can just talk about Defias bandits to avoid all that first-date awkwardness. Plus, you won’t be surprised in a few months when your new special friend wants to stay up all night and slay bad guys!
