Dating can be tough for those who are enthusiastic about video games.Even if we ignore the social stigma that surrounds “gamers” and “gamer culture”—which certainly doesn’t make finding a companion any easier—there’s still one big obstacle: game enthusiasts are a niche market.When you join Mai Otaku (pronounced My Otaku), the first thing to do is list your favorite anime (from our list of all of them) and any conventions you have attended.We match your list, mixed with your basic stats (birthdate, orientation, location), to find other fans like you who are near you.Again, it’s worth taking the time to fill this out properly.Afterwards, LFGDating lists all members who fit your match criteria.
So, realistically, they’re worth a shot but you should not expect immediate success.
There doesn’t seem to be a way to browse through or query the member database directly, but that isn’t really necessary with this system.
Free members can respond to received messages but cannot send them.
While the site looks straight out of the 1990s, it’s functional and suffices.
Right away, without creating an account, you can perform a Quick Search to browse through potential matches based on age, location, and distance. But for best results, you should create your own account.
