Pilf's post about WOW Hunks makes an important point - that, contrary to basement-dwelling cliché, many male WOW players are in fact highly eligible. Thinking about my own group of RL friends who play WOW, there are surveyors, managers, engineers, charity workers and journalists.They're all nice guys, none of them live with their mothers and they all have active social lives. Add to that the Greater Internet Romantic Hero effect and you've got what seems like quite a catch.
That's great if you're a female gamer, because you also have a shared interest, but not so wonderful if you're the kind of girl who hates computers and likes to settle down for an evening watching Friends. If start playing WOW just to meet men and don't actually enjoy it yourself, you're in danger of becoming a WOW widow.
Besides, all those so-called men are women IRL anyway!
