Online dating vs. online gaming: Are gamers really forever alone?

A look at the stats shows that the “forever alone” gamer stereotype is no longer accurate.

Despite the fact that the gaming industry brought in about $16.5 billion dollars in the US during 2011 (about $6 billion more than all North American box office sales), gamers still have a stigma as being cave-dwelling anti-socialites with zero dating skills. This is especially true for online gamers, who spend their hours with titles like World of Warcraft. But a look at the user profile of gamers versus that of people who use online dating sites paints a very different picture.
