    Sucks about the previously arranged marriage. Makes for a good story/memory regardless though. The old school days of MUDs no less.

    Oh the stories I could tell.

    I've forwarded the survey to a couple friends, and I'll take it myself when I have the time later.

    I started playing MMORPGs when I was 14 (almost 10 years ago now) with a friend of mine. Both of us were shy, geeky, and didn't get along well with other people our age. I found a new home in MMORPGs, and the people I met made it feel that way. I felt I fit in so much better, even though most of the people I played with were older than me. The age differences never really mattered to me, because the online world breaks down or makes invisible many of those barriers.

    That's really awesome, thank you!

    Stories are always fun to share, and there sure as hell isn't a lack of them. When you spend years playing, meeting thousands of people, it's difficult not to come away with some crazy stories.

    I met my girlfriend of 5 years on WoW, so it works sometimes.

    Like dating in any setting, it's not always going to work out. Just because you meet someone at school doesn't mean you're going to have a higher success rate than meeting someone online. It's simply another place to meet people with similar interests, and a more vast area to find someone who may be compatible.

    Thank you! I would hope it's at least somewhat enjoyable to take, to ease the burden of the length. It's an interesting topic (to me and what seems like many others), so an interesting survey to go along with it goes hand-in-hand I suppose.

    I think online relationships can work just as well in real life, as long as both parties are dedicated and at least adults. Teenage relationships can work too but the problem is financial Independence, adults are just more likely to take the relationship to the real world and cover the distance most of these relationships demand.

    I've never had a relationship with someone I've met in an MMO. I feel left out.
