My girlfriend is a gamer, but thus far we seem to have very different tastes in games. It actually kinda sucks because we haven't really found anything we enjoy playing together. Makes the whole having a gamer girlfriend thing seem like more of a novelty :/
Anyway, don't give the OP crap guys. Meeting strangers online is old hat nowadays. You just be smart about it-- meet in a public place, take your own vehicle, tell someone where you're going, etc. There are even guides if you're too much of a tard to figure out how to not get raped/kidnapped/axed. And it's not like he's giving off a creeper vibe.
I can understand wanting to meet people irl to play the game with... I would have enjoyed XI much more if I had, but nobody in my area was on my server. The game got a lot less fun when my brothers quit. I think getting to know people in the area is a good idea so when the game comes out you'll actually have some (gasp) real life friends, and you can make sure to get on the same server.
Plus it's Dallas. Surely there are some people here from Dallas. But you should probably put (Dallas) in the topic title, OP. Good luck to you.
What color are your eyes?

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.
Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
