.... guild killer here ...First one fell apart due to GM's personal difficulties, many of which involved me ... /cough. Second one fell apart due to a schism in the members, of which I was in the splitting-away team. The one that formed from that ended up being a lame duck because I got a tad too personal with the GM, who turned out to be kind of nuts, and that blew up in my face.The lesson I learned after all of this: stop dating tanks :( It was a bad time for me, and I did some stupid things. Unfortunately the people on the other end did stupid things too, so it ended baaaaaadly.

Not sure why dating tanks would be any worse than dating dps'ers or healers. Unless you end up with a life-partner type person, dating usually ends up bad in the end, and stupid things go along with that, that's just kind of the nature of it. As long as you learn and grow, and don't do anything stupid that would require jail time or a restraining order, no need to beat yourself up over it. We're all looking for love (or a roll in the hay, whatever your pleasure) in the places we enjoy being, and WoW is no different.BTW don't take this the wrong way, but since the internet is so anonymous and I can't tell your gender from your screen name, I can't help but think if this is a girl-boy, boy-girl, boy-boy, or girl-girl thing. (/ducks!)

Not particularly worse, but I've found tanks have a tendency to be GMs, so that's where the issues start. I've certainly learned my lesson - a nice steady RL relationship for two years now, and my guildies are mostly RL friends too.I'm a girl, so they've been boys :P You've ducked, so I really feel obligated to throw something now ...

Ah yes, GM significant other issues definitely cause friction. Even just being in the same guild with my girlfriend during Wrath (I was just a raider, not an officer) was a bit stressful, since she was not very social with the guild and wouldn't stick up for herself, so I had to advocate for her, for example to do the Shadowmourne quests in ICC when it would slip the minds of the raid leaders.Legendary quests are yet another headache that Raid Leaders have to deal with.You can throw anything at me, I'll dodge it, I was the Bombball champion in 5th grade. (Bombball is like dodge ball, except there are no teams, and there is no out of bounds area, an every-man-for-himself dodge ball-like deathmatch).
