Launched on June 23, 2003 the virtual online site called Second Life was created by a company called Linden Lab for "dating". Like Beyoncé becoming her alter-ego Sasha Fierce, you create a whole other "you" whose world you can actually control in all aspects. It does help to remember that cyber-reality isn't reality at all.Who among us doesn't want to have a perfect life where you are forever young, beautiful, and life is exactly how you want it to be? Virtual dating can seem a bit sad if taken too seriously.
Think of it like Skype, but with cartoony, customizable avatars in the place of other people.Once you’ve made a snazzy profile, you start getting responses, like this: But when you try to reply to these messages, you get this popup: If you’re really curious, you have to shell out for a one month membership. Even worse, according to the FTC complaint, disappointed members were often unknowingly charged again to keep their subscription current.Fair enough, you think, the site has to make money somehow. Some users who tried to cancel their membership had trouble doing so.This game has millions of accounts made and is the most used virtual world today.Create your own character, build structures, hang out in different realistic worlds, go shopping, and much more.Finding someone through Internet dating is sort of like being set up on a 'blind' date by friends; not all are good or welcome. Internet dating can be frightening too; you never know until you meet someone what will happen.
