    Default DDO Dating

    Why isn't there some sort of DDO Dating website, like OkCupid or some such? I think it'd be a big hit. I'm randomly running into people that play in Colorado, why not work up something like Gaming Dating? Just wanted to see what people thought of this. Maybe some programmer out there knows how to pull it off...

    Honestly, I find the idea more then a little creepy.
    Maybe it's just me, though.

    It's not just you. That's why I'm thinking this has to be a troll attempt, just a very odd one.

    While more than a few people have met their future mates in games (here and elsewhere), setting something up specifically for such a reason would lead to all sorts of problems. People taking advantage of others, etc.

    Concept of gamers-meeting-gamers? Cool.
    Reality of a site for it? Likely not so much so in practice.


    Unfortunately.


    And to go along with the lighter side of things, this MUST be linked in:






    Disclaimer: CD publicly disavows any interest or fantasies derived from gaming dating site or app, however should any unattached gamers of the female persuasion find themselves at Gen-Con with nothing to do on Friday evening, the Friday Night gathering of DDO gamers is a fine place to find CD who has an infamous tendency to keep buying drinks for ALL the girls around the tables. Ya know, just sayin' & all.

    I met my wife gaming online, and have met several other people who have done the same.

    That said, agree with other posters, a dating service of some kind is just... odd to me

    You find some hot women like Felicia day that game DDO,... and don't have some kind of serious mental/psychological problems and or quirks and then sure put up a site lol.

    I don't know about yall but theirs alot of oddballs on voice. And drunk people but thats to be expected when power gaming heh.

    I grew up and started playing when I lived in Castle Rock. Moved a bit further south now (NM) but I am back in D-town quite often.

    Personally, I don't think a dating site would work. Half the people I run into in-game, I want to punch in the face. (I never would but it's tempting)

    One of my RL friends met her ex-fiance in an online game.

    That did NOT end well. At all.

    There's just something creepy about environments where it's 90% males, 10% females and of the men, 50% are basement-dwelling social inepts. (Exaggeration, but maybe not by all that much)
    I don't have a zerging problem.

    I'm zerging. That's YOUR problem.

    Pretty much this.
    I want to punch people like Prep pretty often.
    I would seriously do it.
