Gamers Get Girls: Online Gaming vs. Online Dating [Infographic]

I knew it! Assuming the information on this infographic is correct, it confirms what I’ve always thought was true. That is, single guys who hang out on online dating sites are mostly lame, and single guys who hang out on gamer websites are mostly hot, typically. To me, it seems like there isn’t even a contest here, but this interesting study compares online gaming to online dating.

Gamers just have a different mentality in my opinion. It’s so much sexier to connect with someone on that level. It’s a whole different kind of adrenaline rush, and I’m sure a lot of it has to do with the whole anticipation of it all. This infographic touches on that a little when it says that there is an uncertainty there. For example, on a gaming website, you don’t really know if the other person is interested in you or not. You get to have fun while you explore that to find out. On a dating website, someone picks you because they are interested, and the mystery about that is instantly gone.

There is also a special bond there that only a gamer can truly understand. If you are a gamer, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. It makes sense that players tell each other things that they wouldn’t tell their offline friends. For me, this is true in social media also. I tell my social media friends things I wouldn’t dare tell any of my offline friends. Then again, my best friend is an online friend, so for me, it’s a whole lifestyle that comes very naturally.

So, to all you guys who are sending dozens of messages to girls on sites like (and not getting any response), just remember, the gamer guys are quietly behind the scenes getting all the girls! tee hee [Infographic created by Online University]
