My boyfriend and I met over WoW and, until we can move in together, our relationship will remain long-distance. Yet, we still manage to stay strong with the help of WoW and many other online games :DA lot of people may make fun of us, and I know at least my mom thinks online-relationships are silly and they're "fake", but I have this strong feeling that they day that I get married is the day I will prove everyone wrong :)
Well since you asked, my ex-wife and I played online games in 1993. It was a local dial-up game that we hosted. My wife hooked up with one of the guys from the game and now we're not married.But, Because she was out of my life I was able to meet my new wife in 2001. We were off college for the summer and spent the summer chatting on-line, then when we got back to college we eventually got together. Now she's my wife of 10 years, an avid WoW player, and way better at it than I am. We rarely have the 'you always play game and never hang out with me" fights. We do have the occasional "Hey you went on LFR and didn't invite me?" But she's got like 5 level 85 alts. This year we will celebrate valentine's day by running LFR. We both wish that the in-game marriage thing was in WoW and not Rift. Maybe you guys will cool the sting by giving me a free mini-pet? :)
My boyfriend got me to play World of Warcraft and now i end up playing it more than he does! But when we play together we are one unstoppable team. A holy pally and assassin rogue ruling the ranks on Gul'Dan![[: Even more as a couple ^^ I think I even know more about the game noaw than he does :o But he doesnt like to admit that[; Happy Vday!<3333
I always hated World of Warcraft til I met my Husband on a sunny afternoon in Goldshire, I was a little lost and he offered to help me. After I finished what I had needed to do we sat by the pond and talked for hours, from that moment on he was all I could think about. Four years ago Valentine's Day, we were wed in game and moved in together in real life. We were married again (under state law) about a year ago, I am very grateful to World of Warcraft for helping me find my true love and we still run together all the time.
I was drug kicking and screaming into online gaming, I was strictly a console kinda girl. But now, 5 years later I have WOW to thank for getting the best friends I've ever had, the best of whom I met while we did the Druid Epic Flight quest. We all are in the same guild, and raids are a trip in giggling and joking, and having the most perverted conversations. We have people from Australia as well as the US, and the friendship boggle my mind.More then that, I met the love of my life while leveling in vanilla. We leveled, joked, and became fast friends. Now, we are engaged, still laughing, and make a completely lethal arena team. So thanks for that Blizzard.
My fiance taught me how to play my main and, well, basically everything I know about WoW. That's really one of the things that brought us together in the first place. The first day I met him, I commented on his horde hoodie, and the rest is history. There's nothing I love more than when we raid together, or work on achievements. Almost 3 years together, we're getting married in March. And we still spend loads of time together, in Azeroth and out. <3
I keep in touch with many of my old friends through WoW
I met a few good friends through wow last year and they have been greet in times of need.
My boyfriend and I live several states away from each other. The day that he moved I reactivated my old WoW account and gave him the information so that we could play together. It lets us feel like we're spending time together when we can't be in each others physical presence. It took some convincing to get him to play (he's an old Final Fantasy MMO player) but now he logs on every day to run heroics with me. If it had not been for WoW, I think we probably would have run into the typical long term relationship problems. It's nice to have a virtual world to spend time with my sweetie in.
i found this post on Wowheadnews and i had to post a comment because WoW has played a huge role in my life these last 11 months. its a bit of a long story, but ive always been very outgoing and have lead a very busy life. My other half introduced me to WoW about 6 years ago and since i have always tried to balance my (other) hobbies and studies with WoW (being a gm of the druid guild we started - and still run - together). im now more grateful then ever that i did this. when i became so ill in mid March (almost 11 months ago now) i was unable to do much - i have been bedridden all this time – that meant no going out with my other half for dinner or to see a movie, hang out with our group of friends, go bowling..etc but my friends on WoW and my other half (with whom i have always lvled chars with, etc) were a great support. i could "hang out" with my friends and have fun with them despite the limitations my illness forced upon my life. i dont really like facebook or that sort of thing, but socializing in WoW with the love of my life and my good friends helped me stay positive through all this gloom.
WoW has kept me single... forever. FOREVER ALONE...
I met my husband five years ago, we spent our first date discussing interests, and found we both loved video games. He mentioned Diablo, City of Heroes and other MMO's and I mentioned a game called WoW that I really wanted to try. Shortly after, my birthday came up, and my love had bought me none other than WoW. We started playing together, and haven't stopped yet... We're now married, and after a long work day the best part is sitting down next to him conquering the "World" together; one boss at a time.. Who'da thought a game could bring a couple so close together. Our romance & warcraft are truly like wine. They only get better with time. My final words for this holiday are Make Love and Warcraft! Happy Valentines everyone!
Bull...excrements. Married in game? World Record? So where WoW has quality events, RIFT has to set a World Record at idiocy to compete?P.S.: Pauthepally and others - join the club.
This has been happening on Runscape for much longer than RIFT has been around. Catch up with the times.
Unfortunately for me, my boyfriend is not into gaming at all (opposites attracting at its finest), and none of my real life friends play WoW. But I've made a lot of new friends through WoW and, during the beta, SWTOR. Its amazing how easy it is to make friends when you save their butts ;D I think MMO's offer great opportunities for friendship to start and grow, and sometimes even more! Although I *will* note that paid MMO's are slightly more friendlier...When someone in Maplestory finds out I really am a girl, I get stalked and spammed with Marriage requests...frequently...Its hard being the mythical creature known as the gamer girl...
I met my wife through gaming. First, MU Online, then Ragnarok Onilne and finally, World of Warcraft.
WoW has played a huge part in my marriage. My husband did two tours in Iraq and when he got back to the states he completely consumed himself in this game. It became his escape from all of the terrible things he witnessed and a safe outlet for his anger. I actually despised WoW for the longest time because I thought it was ridiculous and didn't understand how this was so helpful for him. Well I eventually caved and gave it a shot and was soon just as excited about it as my husband was. It became a common interest between the two of us and soon we were doing everything together. We had something to talk about and it helped to open the dialogue for other parts of our lives. To be completely honest if we hadn't found this common ground with WoW we probably would not have made it to the wonderful relationship we now enjoy today, not to mention the many lasting friendships we've made along the way!
I met my current girlfriend during a game of triviabot just after the ToC patch was released, after we both started shouting 'RFC' and 'YOU LOST THE GAME' at random questions, one of which it did end up being (RFC, obviously) and she got the speed record for the entire game, which has stayed ever since. We've been together ever since I spent ages farming nothing but herbs to sell and buy her the 245 crafted holy paladin chest. We do it weekly on our server now and it's always fun to get random people involved. She always wins though. :(
If it weren't for W.o.W., I wouldn't be in love with the woman of my dreams. This game is how I met my lover, who we met over a Role Play where our characters were a couple on the Horde as she was her troll druid and I was my blood elf warrior. We have been playing WoW since at least early Burning Crusade, so we both have interest into the game as well. I wish to spend every moment with her as possible, as we have been going strong for almost a year now. She may be a huge role why I continue to play this money drain, but I cannot think of anyway how to thank Blizzard for W.o.W. If you read this babe, I love you and always will.- Darkthing<3
My spouse and I actually met in-game through World of Warcraft. It was neat really, I was relatively new to the game and did some research on Naxx(60) because a fellow guildie told me it was floating in the air in the Plaguelands.. I was intrigued and through Wowhead discovered how truly awesome the place was. I then began looking for a way to check it out. My current guild was not interested AT ALL in old content, so that avenue was a bust. Luckily, I ran into a toon through heroics and found out that he and some of his buddies did weekly runs through old Naxx! I was stoked! I quickly joined the Naxx channel they had set up on our server and began following those peeps around.. I even got to see old AQ 20/40 and even current BC content! One of the raid leads, Tykahndrius, chose me to lock tank the twins in AQ. I was totally freaked, cause these people ran through these instances like they weren't even hard! (My current guild at the time, had a hard time on Moroes in Kara... <.<). Apparently I did a good job and was asked to tag along on many more adventures. It was a really fun time for me, b/c I was getting to see the game in a whole new way, becoming a way better player, understanding the game more and getting to know Tyk through all of this. Needless to say, 2yrs later, an expac, several new toons and the fall of LK;, we were married and now have a 1yr old daughter! We have totally dorked out with this new bundle of joy and even got her a t-shirt that says NOOB!
