Dating.com is joining forces with virtual reality (VR). The business is now launching a “meta-dating place for modern singles” in Decentraland. This is a blockchain-powered online community that has grown to be a well-liked entry point into the overwhelming metaverse.
In order to promote its new service, Dating.com asserts that online dating is superior to in-person dating. An issued statement said, using avatars to date in virtual reality “allows users to form connections without any of the materialistic judgments in the external, physical world.” According to them, in online dating, you can find love without worrying about spending time and money. Singles may develop relationships centered on personality, similar beliefs, and shared interests.

The dating site is also supporting the removal of geographic restrictions. They are now promoting their site as a place “where distance is no barrier to finding a match.” As a result, it will launch its new online dating service with what they call “the wedding of the year.” Confused about it? Well, three “intercontinental couples,” who all met on Dating.com, will be joined in “blockchain marriage.”
Obviously, the marriage documents will be NFTs (users will also be able to donate NFTs to one another while mingling in the virtual space). They’re the token of digital love, get with the times!
Virtual dating is a form of dating which is focused on digital avatars rather than actual people. It is slowly becoming a part of our mainstream culture.
