The Bossy Pally: Good Idea To Mention WoW On A First Date?

Ever wondered if the fact/trivia/terrible secret that you play WoW would help you (or anyone) on a date? Well, Ophelle’s got a take on whether it helps or not from a girl’s view, complete with personal examples. And pie charts.

And from what gamer guys say, you’d think that, as a girl, uttering the words World of Warcraft on a first date would equal instascore. To illustrate this, I’ve unscientifically guestimated the following statistics …

Yeah, you’d think that, as a girl, uttering the words World of Warcraft on a first date would equal instascore.

Buuuut, in general, WoW hasn’t gotten me very far.

Ophelle uses the WoW-as-real-life trick to turn geek-dating on its head with some amusing results. I particularly liked her use of the “real life UI” and the thought of reputations with other people made perfect, geeky sense. She takes a look at the types of responses she’s had from mentioning WoW on a first date and it sounds like it’s surprisingly rare for it to be love-and-gooey-eyes-at-first-sight-positive reaction. Which is good, because gooey eyes aren’t a pretty sight.

But does talking/mumbling/gushing the WoW thing help at all on a date? That’d be telling – go read Ophelle’s conclusion!

What do you think? Has it ever helped you, or do you steer clear of taping gaming and dating together?
