there is a problem here. If this continues, nerds will learn to breed.

I'd backsmack her.

Shennanigans. There are no girls on the internet and that guy doesn't sound like a 13 year old
 
2012-07-17 12:12:08 PM  
Double-shenanigans.

She's too hot to be from the internet, much less playing Halo.

Oh, God no. This gives hope to millions of nerdy online gamers that encounter a female voice in online games. They will never, ever shut up now. There's nothing more agonizing in video games than being forced to listen in on a video gaming nerd trying to strike up a conversation with a video gaming female.

A 5 year, long distance relationship sounds a bit awkward. Glad they were able to finally meet in person and that it actually seems to have worked out. If they had invested that much time and had something go wrong would have been a bit of a tragic comedy.
 
2012-07-17 12:17:23 PM  
Damn, she looks a lot like the girl that still has my heart. Except the last time I met her in the airport our hug and kiss was 10X better. Eh, well good for those kids, hope it works out.

/She moved away

Actually, its not. I have several good friends from all over that I met playing MMOs. Some I feel a lot closer to then just friends. I was even called a little brother by one, in return, she became my older sister. And I have a real close connection with another young lady. It is just a new way to talk and learn more about other people.

/Why yes, I am a Video Game Geek. Why do you ask?
//No, did not hook up on said MMOs.

And that night they discovered that they have no sexual chemistry.

He noob tubed me, so I called him a fa***t ni***r biatch.

Right then, I knew it would be forever.

The couple met five years ago in a Halo 3 game lobby, became virtual best friends, and began a romantic relationship two years ago, and met for the first time in March.

i'm confused, how can you start a romantic relationship 2 years ago, when they only met 3 months ago?
 
2012-07-17 12:33:42 PM  
Wow, shame on me thinking they would both be unattactive people before clicking the link.

And I'm a geeky gamer dude. I should not prejudge my own kind like that.

ahhh thats sweet. My buddy met his wife online long distance, they dated "virtually" for a couple years, then he up and moved to michigan, they just had their first baby not too long ago.

Semi-serious question: If there's someone that you like that much over a long-distance relationship, why does it ever take more than a few months to decide to meet in person?

Are the Amtrak tickets that expensive? These are people who have the disposable time and income to be doing this serious online gaming. Why don't they just meet once they decide there's some chemistry? You know, get laid now and then?

When I lived in the Bronx, Brooklyn was a long-distance relationship.

That being said, good for them, they look like people who may have actually dated IRL but really found compatible people.

If you want to see a terrible relationship started by people who met on WoW and then moved in together prematurely, it may have been a documentary called "My Gaming Addiction."

The other states are bigger. Amtrack service is also less frequent and reliable for the rest of the U.S. For the two in the story, looking at Amtrak, it's $380 - coach seating - and 38 hours to get from Texas to Tennessee (assuming Houston and Memphis were the departure and arrival cities). That's just one way. Google Maps puts the drive from those two cities at 568 miles and 10 hours.

A 10 hour drive turns into a weekend trip, if you want to have time to actually do anything when you get there. That means adding meals and a few nights in a hotel into the budget.

A plane ticket probably falls somewhere between the two - much faster than driving, but also a bit cheaper than flying.

And as a woman, if I didn't know anyone else in the destination city, I would be reluctant to just take off by myself to meet a mystery dude from the internet. Best case, I'd talk a friend into coming with me both to split expenses and be around in case something went horribly wrong.

I'd kind of glossed over the Texas part -- I realize that Texas is a good-sized country in and of itself.

I think that if you know someone well enough to make the weekend trip, you are staying with them -- perhaps on a sofa, but the meeting is for that person. The theory espoused here is that the guy is no longer a "mystery dude."

I actually do know people who made booty calls halfway across the country after an online relationship. But these online relationships were no longer than a few months, they decided they finally had to meet in meatspace.

I guess that in many situations a weekend trip could easily be $500 or more, possibly for someone on a tight budget. But after you've known someone for a few months, there comes a point where you save up so you can go, meet them, and lovingly fondle each others' genitals.

When I was dating online, I never dated anyone who lived more than an hour away, especially with my schedule.

I just had "the talk" with my 9-year-old. I never thought it would be so difficult to explain when camping is griefing, and when it is acceptable gameplay.

I hope you explained to him, griefing is always acceptable gameplay.

I guess it's a good thing that she didn't turn out to be a 62 year old congressman pretending to be a woman who wanted to meet in the airport men's restroom.

Look at everyone's face in the background of the video at the airport, they just look super pissed and angry at those two hugging. How dare they be happy!

Well, when there's the knowledge that the two of you will eventually be gettin' rad in meatspace, being able to look but not touch builds up this insane sexual energy that makes the payoff pretty spectacular, at least in my experience.

I met a cool lady on the other side of the country through some stupid website called Fark.com eleven years ago, and we're married now.

If you listen to one drunk, psychopath on the internet today then make it me.

Go get her you stupid, son of a biatch! Life is way too short to turn you back on some you love and you want to be with. Seriously, why are you even still reading this? RUN! RUN TO HER!

I once drove 3 hours and 170 miles to meet face to face a girl I met once at a party one time and started talking to online afterwards. I won't get rude because I'm a gentleman.

.......but it was awesome. I then did it every weekend for a year. Was totally worth it.

the best sex you ever had was still...

just sex.

never understood the whole "build up" stuff. yes, anticipation is fun. anticipation that lasts months is simply frustrating.

some people must truly think they just can't find love. that is the only explanation for some of this crap.

go out to your local wal-mart or other retailer or grocery store and just girl watch (or boy watch) until you find someone you like. step two - HIT ON THEM.

it's just sex, people. it isn't pixie dust spewing unicorms.
