    On line gamers hook up & get married

    Was watching a TV show last night about online gaming. It was about couples that met through these online games. They build an on line avatar character and a virtual life together. Slaying dragons, other characters together, building houses etc. They chat on line out of the game and talk on Skype. Some meet up and travel from all over the wold just to meet. A few got married. One couple 5 years on still married and two kids.


    Im thinking WTF thatís just plan nuts yeah.


    But really, itís similar to online dating. You chat a bit, talk on Skype and may fly and meet up.

    So whatís next?

    Problem with those "Second life" type fantasy sites is that "She" always looks sexy young and lovely on there.
    As soon as you get anywhere near real life though she turns out to be some kind of old ugly reclusive troll...555

    This first started happening about 10 years ago. The marriages of course take place in real life and quite some time after they've been well acquainted in person, but the origins still remain somewhat of a stigma.

    An online game is basically just a glorified chat room, not much different to various, more socially accepted apps today. And some of these gamers spend quite a lot of time in there, sometimes years. So somewhat ironically, they end up knowing each other much better than regular couples who might only spend weeks and months dating before engagement.

    All good as long as it works.

    Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

    That is pretty much how it was for most the couples but both were the same so it didn't really matter they still loved each other.

    One guy on the gaming site was a big black fella in life he was a regular white guy. The funny thing was the girl was black in life and sexy too. They were the ones that got married 5 years ago and had too kids. Rather nice story really.

    As you know I had a blast with online dating. I met so many girls not just in Aust but in Asia as well.

    I'm a bit shy going up to a random girl in a bar or off the street (not in LOS....55) , its part of my fear of rejection I guess. On line dating gives you the opportunity to get to know them first.

    After my first marriage ended I was single for a number of years.
    I must have tried most of the online dating sites in that time. Back then it was more phone and sms, no smartphones yet.
    Like Ozzy, met lots of different people and had fun. Never really the way to find someone long term.
    The big issue always seemed to be, people couldn't help drifting back there after a while, the grass is always greener and there's always plenty of grass...555 IMO there is no substitute to meeting someone in person and just hitting it off.

    Oh yes, met some of those "Second life" types too. Nice enough people, but no oil paintings among them...555

    I don't know C1 seams to be a lot of people that meet online these days and have a life together. Most of my friends that where single and now in a relationship met on local dating sites.
