Please dont take this the wrong way.... im just not sure if this thread is awesome... or just scary.

Meeting your other half in a game... and EVE of all games... oh god lol. Its worked out for some people it seems however! Very HappySmile

Humm wonder if this is how I meet that stunningly beautiful music loving game playing mrs perfect? :P ......... naaa cant see that happening.


You'd be surprised. Look at all the posts above. I'll also ad In a MUD I played there were a number of marriages where 5 years later people were checking in on out of game boards reporting on happy mariages and things like moving on from role playing to amateur theater etc (yeah rp's are a different breed .. I'm not one but I do put a foot into the fuller immersion now and then)

Really it comes down to this being a hobby of ours and I'm sure many marriages originate at dog shows , bowling leagues, kite festivals etc. Its great when a couple has similar interests

No, but I can imagine a break-up in my future caused by the game. I can't tell you how many conversations I've had with my headset still on one ear.

lol yeah.. I grant you that.. 9 out of 10.. maybe 49 out of 50 the mmo's hurt relations with the other half ... unless they also play or have some equally time consuming and life engrossing hobby.....

well, I suppose it would beat going out drinking with the boys everynight but being a lesser evil isn't quite the same as helping relations.

I met my wife because of eve, does that help ? Razz

Took a break after losing an Ark to a stupid mistake, just needed some time away from eve...
We've been married over a year now, and I no longer mind losing that Ark, lol

Turns out she's a WoW-geek, so she doesn't really mind me playing eve, but she never will try my "science-geek, excel spreadsheet"-game, lol Laughing

I love that sort of thing.

People in real life still have hang ups about talking in public about playing games.

Well, it started two and a half years ago when I was in a different corp and we were negotiating an alliance. We had a Ventrilo server that we were using and she was only playing Eve because her current boyfriend at the time had gotten her hooked into it. I had asked a question about natural herbs for pain relief, and her (being a bit knowledgeable on the subject) had answered. Apparently the question plus the sound of my voice intrigued her (her own words as I type this) so we started talking more in both Vent and in game.

After this in short order, we exchanged contact info for out of game as her sub was up. So we continued there, got into phone calling, and of course, pics and webcams shortly thereafter. After a year of this, I decided to fly out to see her in person (me in Michigan at this time, her in California). We hit it off so well that shortly after, I came back for 3 weeks on a job interview out here and also to see if we'd get along long-term. Turns out we did, so upon coming back, I packed up all my **** and moved out to be with her.

Now a year and some change later, we are still together. Although she doesn't play Eve anymore, she at least understands when I tell her that I need to dock up before helping out with stuff. Nothing beats having a chick that's also a gamer. Cool

I introduced my wife to MMOs so its the other way around for me.

However, I am aware of at least two wedding this month by players who found each other in EVE. There are a lot of love stories that started in EVE. Some of them even started after one person ganked the other. It goes to show that chatting in local is underrated!


some pairings have no evidence of female participation!

Okay, so you actively pursued a woman when you knew she was attached?? Morals and scruples - miss them, much?

Oops, forgot to mention that she had broken up with him before we started any serious talking.

Although, this is Eve, so morals do tend to go out the window anyways. Laughing

Damn, no one has responded to my personal ad yet!

single and in Bay Area, but much younger than the age you specified so instead i will make my own ad =P

seeking boyfriend for a long-term relationship in SF area* anyone applying to be my bf will need to demonstrate a couple hundred kills in kill section of the character sheet, proficiency in fitting out pvp ships and skill to successfully fill any of these roles:
-being my falcon alt: if you can fly only a blackbird train up to a falcon and re-apply in a month
-being my logistics alt: guardian preferred, huge bonus if you have a carrier and balls to put it into triage
-being my spy alt: I love to gossip about which alliance is failcascading currently and how their fail is moving along
-jita sugar daddy: while i can support losing a couple T2 ships a week I would definitely not mind upgrading to flying with full pirate sets and a couple of 5% hardwirings will do very nicely
*note: you do not have to be local to fill these criteria, but would be nice if we are to have sex regularly
I will consider moving into alliance of a very successful applicant. Thanks for reading.
