Love in the Online Bingo Room?
If you’re playing in online bingo rooms regularly, chances are you’ll bump into a few familiar faces from time to time, but have you ever felt the first flutters of passion? Is there room for romance to reign free in this online environment? We don’t see why not as plenty of people meet their future spouses through other online means such as social networks and dedicated dating sites, why should bingo rooms be any different? One thing’s for sure you’ve already got a common interest so why not see if things can be taken further?
More Men Please!
Of course statistics still suggest that over 80% of players at bingo sites are female but just because there’s only a few of them doesn’t mean that men can’t be found. Research from the past 12 months shows that more men are getting involved with the game and people of all ages are involved so you could bag yourself a bit of a cougar or even your very own toy boy, depending on your preferences. Of course we’re not suggesting that you prowl the chat rooms at your favourite site seeking out potential mates but it could be fun to engage more freely in the chat environment and see if there are longer term friendships or more to be found. We’re sure plenty of loving couples met down their local bingo hall so why can’t the same happen in the 21st century via the online bingo version?
Gala Makes a Match
Only a few years ago the Gala Bingo team were excitedly announcing the pairing of a couple of love birds thanks to their site. In 2009 a Gala Bingo fan named Catherine met the man of her dreams Julian whilst playing at the site. Despite a huge distance between them with Catherine based in Lancashire and Julian in East Yorkshire the couple still found a way to meet up and clicked instantly. Without Gala there is no knowing if their paths would ever have crossed. Their relationship began as many do on bingo sites, with your standard good luck exchanges in the chat room and moved on from there once they realised they shared more common interests than just playing online. They swapped email addresses and the rest they say is history. The couple had plans to marry which is a lovely ending to their online gaming induced love.
Even more recently we’ve heard that the innovative webcam based bingo site Bingocams has had a proposal of its own. Two players at the site have announced their engagement since playing and getting to know each other through the fun site which offers video clips and live win moments as part of its overall experience. The two fans got to know each other through the site and in time built up the courage to meet up in person where the attraction remained and it’s just blossomed from there. The only thing they need now is a big progressive win to pay for the wedding of their dreams, followed by a suitably luxurious honey moon. The Bingocams team were stoked by the announcement and one representative even went as far as to remark that the engagement was caused by ‘love at first webcam.’
Do it traditionally
There are still some traditionalists out there with one Cumbrian woman announcing earlier this year that her then boyfriend proposed to her live in front of all their friends in her local bingo club. Maybe the old ways are the best as the new bride-to-be had been a fervent player at her club for many years and so her boyfriend knew it was the perfect place to ask for her hand.
It seems possible that whatever sort of bingo player you are you can find love, be it in your local hall on your webcam or from behind the computer screen. Of course we’d advise everyone to exercise caution and not just meet up with people from the internet willy-nilly. Developing a great relationship online is one thing but keeping some reservations for real life should always be at the back of your mind. More than anything though, there’s scope to spark some real passion through the online bingo room and it adds another exciting edge to playing games online.
