THEY'VE GOT GAME - UK's first dating website for gamers goes live.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

London, UK (February 22 th, 2012): The UK's first dating website for gamers launched yesterday, promising real-life romance for those who already love their video games.

With the average gamer spending an incredible 1.8 YEARS of their life furiously mashing buttons (according to research released last year by Playr2.com), there just aren't that many hours left in a week to socialise and make that special connection.

But gamers have needs above and beyond getting to Level 80 in World of Warcraft, or killing Vladamir Makarov in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, and sometimes even virtual marriage in Skyrim just won't suffice.

That's where www.dateagamer.co.uk comes in. It caters for gamers of all ages and persuasions, offering them free membership to an intimate network full of perfect Player Twos.

The website – the first of its kind in Britain – is the brainchild of entrepreneur and TV star Tom Thurlow (presenter of MTV's The Freshers).

Thurlow, himself a keen gamer who ranks the Call of Duty and Deus Ex series among his favourites, said: “It is reckoned that over two-thirds of men and more than half of women in the UK now regularly play video games, so it's about time they had access to a niche dating website packed with members sharing the same interests.

“With dateagamer.co.uk gamers can make friends, have fun and find Mr or Mrs Right. It sure beats giving the eye to an avatar all evening!”

Whether their tastes are casual, mid- or hardcore gaming, MMORPGs, shooters, or adventures, gamers can use dateagamer.co.uk to find like-minded men and women similarly hoping to turn a Half-Life into a whole one.
