Hi mylotters! While I'm in bed, I suddenly remembered my guy friends who I was able to play with some online games. I remember them playing "girl" characters. I asked them why would they want to take the role of a girl character in game. One of my guy friends say that so he could get rich guys to buy him stuff. What other reason could you think of why some guys tend to pretend as girls online but they are real men in real life? Happy mylotting

I know someone who did that. Didn't end well for him. Turned out that the guy he was lying to was just beside him. Lol. I just stood back and enjoyed the show. Lol. That's true though, they just wanna take advantage of gullible dudes.

Yeah it is but that shop was always infested with people playing that same game so i wasn't that surprised. They just had an argument. A little pushing but nothing serious. But it was fun to watch. Lol.

I think the reason is too much time on their hands, such they feel scamming someone for gifts is the way to go. I wonder how they felt when they got the men to buy them stuff and it was womem's stuff

I even asked that too, what if he's on that guy's shoe and scam him. He said he's careful enough to be scammed..

Well I think that idea of spending time to scam people all together is wrong to start with, if you are involved with someone like that, is time to rethink things. Beware of those signs, and walk away from that kind of influence and trouble. It could come back to hunt you and hurt your life.

i dont know why but i know in south africa that most of them pretend to be a girl and even uses girls picture then the reason why they do it is for them to ask money from those guys they are chatting. they will promise for show and everything. they will also going to use other woman video telling its them. theres a lot of report about them already.

I know about that. Before whenever I come in a chat room there's a lot of girls who pm's me and asked if we could talk or something and saying something not really nice.. I wonder if they're doing that for a living.. x.x

When you end up looking at your character all day, you tend to want to make an attractive and fun-to-look-at avatar. For straight guys, this means a cute female character. :3 Also, some games just don't let you play as male for certain character classes. I know at least one game where each character class has only one base avatar. For one each for each gender, but a grand total of one. :

Some games girls level up quickly than the male character. But it's personal, I don't know if they like to be girls in the game. Ok, I've played some games with girl chars, but that was why the character was more interesting than the others, the moves was more atractive.

Its true that men are real gentle to girls online. :D 95% of the internet is of men. So it's rare that you see an ACTUAL female character ingame

so that's why I get the impression of "are you really a girl?" or "girls can't be that good when it comes to online games, you're a guy right?"
