Video game dating site

Date a Gamer chief Tom Thurlow said members of Date a Gamer had been using the site to search for sex rather than relationships. Already hundreds of members have defected, Thurlow claimed."Over the past few months we noticed that instead of looking for love, many of the members were using the site purely to meet up for sex - it's not something we were expecting, but obviously gamers get urges too.

There is a chat room where you can talk to online members, though.

This is probably a good idea to try out at first as you can get a general feel for the platform. Profiles are also very detailed on, so you can pinpoint exactly what your deal breakers are and what aren’t.

"Our initial 'starting base' of members for this site will again be determined by user interests 'computers', 'computer gaming' and ones who are purely only interested in no-strings rendezvous," he said.

The dating world isn’t a cake walk for anybody out here.

The site is still small with around 55,000 members in total, however due to the popularity of video games you may find a few surprises.

Some may even consider this to be a kind of nerd or geek dating, however nerds and geeks aren’t the only ones who like gaming!

"This is a result of direct marketing to gamers who have been coming to the site since launch in February and as a gamer myself, I'm genuinely happy that I've been able to build this niched community of single gamers.

" He denied users from Date a Gamer will be automatically signed up to Shag a Gamer.

Thurlow admitted to Eurogamer this afternoon that he used a site called Global Personals that helps dating site creators get an initial starting base to lift Date a Gamer off the ground.

"Only members that specifically express an interest in 'computers' and 'computer gaming' were selected to be displayed on Date a Gamer for our members to meet," he said.

But we're all adults and by using this platform all members know what they are there for and the activity is far more transparent.
