Because:

1. Over 95% of players are male
2. Long distance
3. How do you know what s/he looks like?

And most importantly, this game mostly breeds evil, scum-sucking douchebags, so would you really want to be with a girl like that?

Actually, forget that last bit. I have yet to date a girl who isn't an evil, scum-sucking douchebag...

Female gamers have a tendency to be socially awkward (or socially inept) attention whores, in very much the same way male gamers are.

If the percentage of female gamers in EVE is in the one-digits (1-9%), the percentage of well adjusted female gamers is an order of magnitude worse.

I am always extremely wary of any females I meet playing games, because to be honest... the G.I.R.L. (Guys In Real Life) are actually easier to get along with.

EDIT: Oh, yeah, don't forget that she'll probably empty your hangars just before she breaks up with you.

I got my gf into EVE a couple years ago. She runs two accounts, the oldest of which just hit 30,000,000 SP the other day. She's mostly a highsec player, though- gets REALLY frustrated when her crap gets blown up . lol.

EVE is a bit hardcore for her, I think, but she still plays a little. We played Darkfall for a while (I was the one who quit it first- HATED the grind. She still wants to go back to it) and she didn't mind the full loot death penalty... mainly because in that game the loot you lost really wasn't such a big deal. Death in EVE is a lot more serious business kinda thing, so usually when she snuffs it in game she takes a small break before wanting to come back. =D

there are several channels (or at least there was) but from what I have heard it was a bit of a Sausage fest http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=sausage%20fest

Sorry but file “forumsig.GIF” is currently unavailable please come back later…… like in a year or so.

The main reason for not dating in EvE, is when the relationship ends, and it will end, the jillted party will take ALL your stuff, instead of just half. Cool

because i have a girl in real life

the only game i ever had a GF in that I had never met in RL was SWG. she was so immature and psycho i swear that she had to be underage or a troll, or both. at least in real life when you meet a woman, you don't risk ending up on MSNBC's "to catch a predator" for trying to meet your in game girlfriend.

My wife and I first met while playing DAOC, so it is possible to meet someone. I'm not convinced it's the easiest or most ideal way to meet someone but it does happen. Unfortunately, she never developed much love for EVE despite multiple attempts to get her into the game.

Once you grant them roles they'll loot your assets, clean out your wallet, and make a public spectacle of your gullibility.

Sounds like a great foundation for building a lasting relationship.


In EVE terms, that's just foreplay.
