Who says gamers don’t need love? A Philadelphia Craigslist ad has surfaced likening the squishy feeling of romantic entanglement with the cold hard random shapes of Tetris. “The long piece” - the piece that Tetris fans long for in all of their games is what this Craigslist seeking gamer longs for in his love life.

If you are looking for a mate you can always check singles groups online or you can opt for speed dating in real life to quickly eliminate losers in 30 seconds. Now you can combine the two with sites such as SpeedDate and WooMe.
