I’ve met several women who considered one of the best parts of playing Magic to be receiving so much male attention and having such a large selection of men interested in dating them.
I’ve known some women who went around dating one alpha Magic player after another.
Obviously, the issues faced by female Magic players are quite different than those faced by male players.
If they’re single, being Magic players can be a lot of fun for them.
AP Images In this era of graphic-novels-as-blockbusters, pop-stars who give just-be-yourself pep talks, and the rising fame of, like, Jesse Eisenberg, is it OK to be a geek yet?
Apparently not, at least judging by a Tuesday's Gizmodo post in which writer Alyssa Bereznak rants about dating a guy who turned out to be a world champion player of the collectible card game Magic the Gathering. The consensus, happily, is that Bereznak showed herself to be pretty lame by dismissing the guy just for playing Magic.
If you’re a guy who plays Magic, how/what do you tell girls about it?
Is it okay to hit on female Magic players, and if so, how do you do it?
Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...
Smitten Kittens, have you heard of Magic: The Gathering?
It's a super popular card game and the vast majority of its fans and players are men.
Magic is a hobby that more than 6 million people, reportedly, share.
Yes, The Guardian writes, Magic is "indisputably associated with geekery." But ditto Game of Thrones, Nate Silver, and, well, online dating—and yet each of those have reached a level of social acceptability and even cred.
