The latest trend in online dating is Virtual Dating. What is virtual dating? It’s kind of a practice date before committing to the real thing. By creating an avatar and doing a run through date with singles you’re interested in, you can become more comfortable with each other before actually meeting. Studies show that people who meet each other in person after having already done virtual dating together are more comfortable and at ease with other.
Virtual dating helps avoid first bad dates and leads to real life relationships. Research done by social scientists from Harvard, Duke and M.I.T. showed that people who go on virtual dates first tend to like each other more when they meet in-person and have more successful in person dates.
People also say it’s a lot of fun to do. Everyone I know who’s tried it has said it was a very enjoyable way to test the waters before going out on a real date. They say it’s a lot like the real thing but you don’t have to get dressed up for it. Sometimes people who set up a virtual date can discover that they are not a true match so it can also be a time saver.
