Gamers Get GirlsDating websites aren't for everybody--hell, we're even suspicious of whether they're for the dashing people in those cutest commercials. With that in mind, Online University looked to the least likely of places as somewhere to find love: Blizzard's World of Warcraft (WoW). The informal online education provider gathered a bunch of data on both, and the results are surprising.

Of course, World of Warcraft is way bigger than the top dating website, eHarmony: 10 million some subscribed players to about 1 million eHarmony users. Sheer numbers aren't everything, but according to data that Online University compiled, 74.7 percent of WoW players are dating someone else who plays the game. Better yet, 42 percent of women gamers are attracted to another player.

On top of that, WoW seems to bring players together both romantically and physically, as over 75 percent of dating WoW players traveled 100 or more miles to meet. And if you think the average WoW adventurer is flying around Azeroth solo, try again. According to the infographic below, a mere 14.9 percent of WoW players are single.
