MIT-Research has shown that doing this kind of virtual dates before you meet the real person helps in having a more successful real date...

Ddduhhh- Any real date will go a lot better if two people do a lot of exchanges in honest writing and speaking before they actually meet. That has been the case since people started dating back in prehistoric ages. Virtual environments are only yet another medium.

What research, specifically? Was it published in a respectable peer reviewed journal?

I'd much rather read the original research paper than watch an ad with a vague reference to unnamed "MIT researchers".

*sigh*
It isn't supposed to be like SL or rp game... it isn't a game. Also, it's private between you and the person you invite.

It's a virtual date, and the inworld stuff like quizzes help you evaluate if this is a compatible person to meet offline.

So you aren't supposed to use it on and one, but to figure out who is worth meeting for a real date.

Most people using online dating have a lot of bad first dates before finding someone compatible. I would know.

If some of you took the time to read rather than assume you know what you're talking about you might understand better. I've used it a few times since it came out and have seen for myself that it does work.

Can you have sex? wtf? you are a geek! Time to step away from the computer if that's your interest lol.
