Pay to play with the ladies over on GameCrush

Are you single, lonely, and a bit socially inept? Are you tired of searching through XBL accounts for that special someone to throw down with in Modern Warfare? Does your soul ache for the online company of someone with double X chromosomes?

Well, get out your wallet then, because a new social service has launched called GameCrush where you can actually pay to play online games with the ladies.

On GameCrush, girls are called PlayDates and the fellas Playas Players. The guys pay to play and gals get paid to play.

No joke.

Sign-up is free, but you must purchase credits to keep going. For $8.25 you get 500 credits, which is enough for one game (400 credits) and a 100 credit tip at the end. An Xbox Live game will last 10 minutes, while a casual Flash game over on the GameCrush site will get you six minutes of video face time with your PaidDate PlayDate.

Guys can browse 1,200 PlayDate profiles, view photos, and even chat with girls for free. Find a gal to your liking,  send her a game invite, and should she accept – you get six to ten minutes of one-on-one gaming.

So far, the service only supports Xbox 360, but there are plans to add PS3, Wii, and World of Warcraft support soon.

Of course, you must be 18 or over to create a GameCrush account and you can set your mood to either “flirty” or “dirty.”

We could go on, but we’re getting a bit confused here. On one hand we’re wondering how much these gals get paid to play because we’re a bit strapped for cash at the moment. On the other hand, we’re getting nauseous over the thought.

Honestly, it’s rather hilarious. Check it out for yourself through here.

Er um, thanks, IGN.
