San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) September 3, 2008
Thousands of men and women are interacting and playing everyday at Winster.com, an online gaming community where players cooperate, rather than compete, to win prizes. Winster'sn cooperative, community-focused approach helps people live happier,nhealthier and more socially active lives. And now, it's even helping people find love!
Winster.com promotes social interaction though shared goals. Players help each other to win prizes, so they naturally make new friends as they play. This reflects the way most adults prefer to meet others in the real world - by engaging in activities of common interest. Playing a game together is a more comfortable way to get to know someone and to let a friendship blossom without the overt pressure typical of online dating or matchmaking sites.
For one lucky couple, Charlene Mills of Brownsville, Texas, and Jonathan Bauman of Raleigh, North Carolina, Winster led to their engagement. Said Charlene, "I certainly wasn't expecting to meet my husband on Winster. I've been on dating sites before and never met anyone whom I wanted to get to know. But on Winster, we were just there to play games and it allowed us to get to know each other and share a mutual interest without thinking about love. It was the best prize I could have won and without Winster we may have never met and found the love of our lives."
Charlene and Jonathan's story is typical of the way Winster helps people make friends, by engaging with other like-minded men and women. Winster's cooperative games create a new type of community based on, mutual interests and shared goals.
"We've created a thriving community of avid online gamers," says Winster Co-founder Michelle Kaplan. "And naturally, when you work together, sparks can start to fly and romance can blossom. What's great about this couple's story is that they weren't looking for love. They just wanted to play games and have fun, but they found love where they least expected it. I'm sure there are many other relationships sprouting right now in Winster's game rooms!"
