SEATTLE, WA, April 05, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ — TangoWire, a community of Online Dating sites, recently announced the addition of Virtual Dating to its network of services with Free virtual dating this Thursday. Virtual dating allows individuals to meet each other in a virtual world before committing to that first real world date, getting to know the person behind the profile in an interactive environment that allows for a unique, interactive experience that goes far beyond chatting or instant messaging.
A group of Harvard and MIT researchers studied virtual and online dating, and found that the online dater’s reaction is more positive towards individuals whom they have Virtually Dated than towards those whose profiles they have just read and that these effects carry forward through an initial face-to-face meeting. They found, in fact, that those who had virtual dates were twice as likely to have more than one offline date.
Shaun Wolfe, CEO at TangoWire, explained, “We’re very excited about bringing Virtual Dating to our members. This fills a serious gap on the online dating experience by having a more meaningful interaction with another person before commitment to a real-world meeting. It is a safe and effective ‘next step’.”
On April 8, 2010, the tab is on TangoWire with “Free vDate Thursday.” Every member of the TangoWire community of sites will be able to go on as many Virtual Dates as they want without paying an additional fee. Free vDate Thursday encourages members to take control and initiate virtual dates for free with other singles, increasing their chance at finding love.
Singles that participate in virtual dates can get to know each other by listening to music, playing conversation provoking games and interacting through life-like, 3D avatars. The avatars will even respond to the text that is typed, providing an enjoyable, interactive experience. Type “LOL,” and your avatar laughs, hit the smile button and they smile; you can even kiss your date if it is going really well – and they give you permission, of course.
The vDate feature adds to TangoWire’s already significant array of member features, including instant messaging, email and vGifting. Virtual Dating has been proclaimed by Scientific American researchers as the next generation of online dating. However, it is still fairly unique among dating sites and TangoWire is excited to be one of the first mainstream networks in the industry to offer it to their members. According to a recent study by Harvard University, Virtual dating establishes a greater rapport between couples that continues after they meet in real life, making it a valuable tool for singles looking for real-life relationships.
