My husband and I used WoW to keep in touch while we were dating long distance. We founded a guild together with some online friends way back when, and we would get online every night. Sometimes we would hang out with the guild, and other times we would have "WoW dates" for just the two of us- running vanilla content, working on reps, or grinding for rare mounts/pets. It was hard to explain to non-gamers, but it really made a huge difference to us. We are still in the same guild, and now my sister plays, and it's a really good way to keep in touch and "spend time" with her. We might talk on the phone every week or so, but I "see" her in-game all the time. In some ways, it seems even better than a phone conversation, because we're doing more than just "exchanging information" about our individual lives- we're working together, socializing, and really just hanging out. I love it!

Honestly, when it came down to it, I kinda wanted to meet a girl on WoW, or at least one who played WoW. I knew a few people who met their future spouse on this game, and they had been pretty successful; there's a couple in our guild right now who is doing the long-distance thing, and they visit each other every month or two. Little did I know that the same thing would be happening to me :) I met this girl while doing a Black Temple run a few months ago, and she ended up joining our guild a little bit later. We just got to talking on Vent and everything and we fell in love with each other. I cant imagine my life without her anymore. We talk everyday now, we play together as often as we can. So yes, WoW is a great way to meet people and keep in touch. You'll be surprised at who you meet on there.
