Date A Gamer's Dating Advice Too Embarrassing For Words

It's not amusing. It's just flat-out painful.

The UK's popular Date a Gamer website has since birthed a spin-off, Shag a Gamer, which is - if possible - even more pathetic and embarrassing. And now, they've gone a step further by having girls tell guys what it takes to get 'em into bed.

They've launched a YouTube channel featuring a few scantily clad chicks giving dim-witted, horridly common-sense and cliched advice to gamers who are apparently very hard up for a date. All of this implies that not only are men who play video games complete social freaks, but they're also borderline brain-dead.

I'm all for tongue-in-cheek fun. I defended the obvious satire that was Duke Nukem Forever. But watching this will lower one's IQ and will in no way assist anyone with getting a girl. It's...sad. This had to be said.

It's a joke right?

Too embarrassing for words and even more embarrassing for someone to actually watch this seriously.

It's like watching TMZ or Access Hollywood. You don't want to look, but you are compelled to...and yet you know it's going to be bad, but it's worse than you expect...

Ben, why did you inflict this upon us? Why? Why!!!

Women like it when they eat, get things, are complemented, and when you listen to them and know their birthday?!? They also want you to be yourself and not have a fake front?

I could never have figured these things out without these youtube videos and this site. I'm going to go out and buy some clothes that don't look like I dragged myself out of Kurt Cobain's basement sale, take a shower (I hear women like hygiene as well), and go out there and shag me a bird.

Thanks Date-a-Gamer, you've turned my life around.

In my day all the English girls needed to get them in the sack was five pints of lager and a packet of crisps.

Times must have changed! They are wanting more...

Both, Date & Shag A Gamer are "gaming" scam sites, that have absolutely nothing what-so-ever to do with real gamers or real gaming.

They're just there to suck the money out of your wallets.

And(allegedly), according to an another true gaming site who investigated into their background, that for the clueless that just had to find out for themselves that the site was scammy, then trying to get a refund... then sends you from one site to another, and then on to numerous different phone numbers where they use high-pressure hype to keep you & paying even more.

BTW, I wonder what currency they wound up paying both of those midriff & thigh flabby models....

Was it those high protein Milkbone dog biscuits....

...or the more meaty Beggin'Strips???

All I can say is that those models were "Ruff, Ruff"

Eh, tweren't too bad. Very Beta. Those girls need a healthy dose of kick ass personality to be a go. And based on those videos... I'd say the personality is lacking.

(Or the director is a d!ck and a moron.)

I got the impression that these gals may be the ones in need of advice.

They don't look like gamers, but they do look a little gamey.

There's a good article done that has entirely discredited these 2 "fake gamer" sites.....
