A new study put forward by IGN Entertainment and Ipsos MediaCT found that gamers are actually more sociable than non-gamers.

The best part:

Gamers are twice as likely to go out on dates as nongamers in a given month

I’m glad this goes against the stereotype that gamers are fat mouth-breathers. I personally have been attracted to gamers are all along; they’re fun people! What’s not to love? It’s so fun getting a good frag on the guy you’re crushing on. Perhaps the most romantic, self-less behaviour, though, would be when a guy acts as your personal medic haha ^^ (Of course taking turns is the nice thing to do.)
