Are Online Gaming Sites Better Matchmakers Than Online Dating Sites? [Infographic]

Are Online Gaming Sites Better Matchmakers Than Online Dating Sites? [Infographic]

How playing MMO games like World of Warcraft can help you find a date.

Yi Chen


If you haven’t had much luck on dating sites like Match.com, eHarmony, or Zoosk, then it might be time to switch to online gamin to find a date. The ‘Gamers Get Girls’ infographic shows that you’re probably more likely to find your perfect match while playing MMO games like World of Warcraft or Starcraft, rather than contacting people on dating sites.

The online gaming community is 12 times larger, has a younger median age, and is visited more frequently. The fact that gamers usually have an anonymous profile can heighten the attraction. Studies have shown that being uncertain whether someone likes you or not, can make you even more interested in them. Furthermore, being anonymous sometimes makes people more honest and prone to confess things they usually wouldn’t.

So next time you’re looking to find a suitable date, pick up the controller and jump online instead.
