What does Meetup.com have in the way of NY-area WoW / Diablo III (or whatever your fragging pleasure) meetups?
Given the ratio of women to men who are into such things, I suspect that any woman into such things could have their choice of men like Armchair. Given such power, I believe that we would all pick a fabulous, exceptional outlier.
Being that most of the world falls within 2 standard deviations, I suspect AW is not exceptional.
Hence, I believe that we should advise AW to stray outside of his comfort zone and cast a bigger net than he is used to: I.E. He should not seek the ever so attract, ever so elusive woman who is into WoW or Diablo III.
AW, dating is about putting yourself out there, being open minded, and (ultimately) settling for who will spend time with you.
You gotta have reasonable expectations. A first step might be accepting that Victoria Secret Models and Diablo III girls might be equally out of your league.
...they just have too many other choices.
For better or worse, the change on Nostrand is going to make the change on Franklin look minor.
