Funny thing, how people assume relationships when two people of the opposite gender appear to be pretty close knit.One of my friends had me apply at a hardcore raiding guild with him. Looking back, I realize how easy it was for people to assume we were attached to each other. I applied at his behest, we were always hanging out together, and I was the 'breadwinner' (meaning I knew how to play the AH and had a ridiculous amount of gold) and often gave him gold for whatever he needed. We weren't a couple then, we aren't now, and likely never will be anything but friends. We also didn't lie about it, but boldly told people we were just friends. It never worked, people continued to assume we were an item. I've since retired from that guild (and raiding in general) and I'm on another server, but he and I are on Real ID and talk often (he remained with the guild and is now an officer there). The people we knew from before /still/ maintain that he and I are a couple. So we jokingly refer to each other as in-game lifemates. Cause even when you do deny a relationship, people will assume or think you're lying about it. *eyeroll*
