Dating for massively multiplayer geeks. The site currently features two pages of girl gamers (mostly jokes, video game characters or hideous trolls; sorry ladies) and innumerable pages of turkey-necked blokes. Gamers really should have a higher prevalence of homosexuality, it would make life so much easier on them, as well alleviating other problems. A friend was telling me that in his school there were girls in all the other years but his; this lead to massive violence, anger, and terrible behaviour on the part of the kids. Perhaps the over-prevalence of violence in games is related to this as well; the proximity of the opposite sex combined with an unbridgeable gap between them.
