Now who would've thought that this day would come? The day when it's the gamers who get the girls instead of the nerds or the geeks or the jocks who are still hell-bent on meeting their match using online dating websites?

Sure, dating sites have their uses and you might still be able to meet your match on them, since everyone who signed up is probably looking for a mate. But what if you could meet the girl of your dreams while doing something you actually like--like playing a video game?

The stats are in, and it looks like that's actually very possible. Here are a couple of factoids that'll highlight the edge that gaming has over online dating:

  • WoW has about 12 million members, while eHarmony has a paltry 1 million
  • Gamers spend 34.6 hours a month online, while online daters log on for just 1.4 hours a month
  • 42% of women gamers find themselves attracted to other players

Pretty awesome, right? We almost didn't believe it at first, too.
