About 6 months later I started a toon on her account and started playing so often she didn't have time to play, joined a guild called <Monster Inc>, made friends and loved playing.
About a year later I have my own account now, and all I got from my gf was "You play too much seriously.." and I didn't care, she was dumb. By this time I had a level 80 Paladin and DK.
About 3 months after that I found myself obsessed with WoW and single, it was her fault, she suggested the game, but let me tell you how awesome it was gkicking her from the guild she got me into now that I was an Officer.
Fast Forward to the beginning of Cata, having taken a 6 month break or so from the game, my former guild Monster Inc dying and without activity, I was bored on my alt Hombrélobo and messing with Horde on TB island, pulling guards and running fast as I get a tell saying "Dude stop pulling guards noob", and after pulling guards again I see in general chat "Druid stop pulling guards please", I believe it was Kat or Keylog or someone from SWBRB, and two days later I found myself a part of Keylogs guild tanking guards as we dominated the horde settlement on TB island.
Those friends are the reason I still play this game, no other game can match the social aspect of this game. I love these guys and gals, killing noobs and slaying dragons with them is fun in its own, it'll keep me coming back.
