OP  8/05/12 3:38:50 PM#1

As a female gamer, Pokket has a unique insight into the ways in which male gamers might want to go about finding the virtual girl of their dreams. Check out her advice in her latest column!

It has come to my attention that there are quite a few guys that know how to get a girl on the internet, and yet still some don't. Being a female myself, and therefore not being bound by some sort of bromantic no-talk secrecy, I thought I would make a written guide explaining the steps to take to get the girl of your dreams. In this case, she exists in your computer. Now, there are many ways to go about getting a girl, but I will try to keep it to the best and most effective ways of doing so.

I want to add a humorous or intelligent comment here.  I really can't though.  I have two sons and I hope that I've raised them well enough that they wouldn't be the subject of an article like this.  That's about it. :-(

For every large, complex problem, there is a simple, clear solution that also happens to be absolutely wrong.

Lot of disturbing people in the world. Guess you have the right attitude about it. Can't let it get to you although I suppose at times it is probably difficult.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

Oh man you don't want your son hooking up with gamergirl, they will want someone to wash clothes and make sandwhiches.

People being negative towards other people on the internet and finding the net is chockf full of basement dwelling lonely stalkers?

STOP THE PRESSES!!! (monocle almost falls from eye...)

Better write an article about it!

 Next you'll be telling me that Chatroulette isn't a safe haven of people just looking for a simple friendly chat!

Good job Pokket, unfortunate women have to go through this when posting as themselves on the internet, but hey, it happens to everyone. (I used to get stalked by near insane guild members back when I did stupid stuff like you know, run guilds)

But at least you still have a sense of humor about it.

i've found that gamer girls naturally gravitate towards me, because after all the shit they put up with they enjoy just being treated like a normal gamer (human being).. gender shouldn't effect anything, but for some people it does.

 

If anyone wants some geniune advice on making gamer girl friends, just treat them like you would any other gamer and have some fun.

In a public forum, are there more likely to be negative comments based on a person's race, religion, sexual orientation or gender? When the comments are related to gender, will they more likely occur if the original poster is a male or a female?

Shining a light on stupidity can be the first step to making it disappear. Or turning it into a meme. It's really a 50/50 thing with the internet.

I agree with you, but to be honest, I'm not crazy about the way she went about it.  Yes, shine a light on stupidity and discuss it.  However, I can't help but feel she gives to these sub-humans exactly what they desire, attention, buy posting what they supposedly wrote.  All it does is perpetuate the problem by inspiring them to do it more.

Althought not as extreme, it's somewhat along the lines of the news media who give unbelievable amounts of attention to psychos who shoot up a movie theater or shopping mall.  All they crave is attention, and by golly that's exactly what they get with their pictures being plastered all over the media for the following weeks after the event.

Well said, Pokket. A lot of this touches on prior work of yours. I'd recommend anyone who enjoyed this to search for "The Friend Zone" on Pokket Sez's Youtube. A lot of information that desparately needs to be understood by the masses.

Nice! If I weren't happily married, I'd try all of those things! Where were you when I was dating? I needed all the help I could get!

 

 

 

Happy Monday, Pokket.

actually, that is what two people on this site wrote. I remember the comments.

In general I don't like Pokket's work but, other than the spelling mistake, I feel this is the best piece to date.

It probably will give attention to people who essentially have issues and crave attention but at least it starts a dialogue. Won't help the perpetrators but maybe something will grow in the heads of people who might try to be "cute" in the future.
