About 60 per cent of men and 48 per cent of women are interested in trying out dating virtually in the Metaverse, according to new research from FIS

While the virtual dating experience may not be exactly the same as in-person dating, it still provides a way for people to connect and build relationship

Dating in the Metaverse is especially relevant for people who are shy or have difficulty meeting new people in person, as per the research. While it is relatively new, dating in the Metaverse has started gaining popularity
