Dating in the metaverse? You need some ground rules to avoid the virtual replacing your reality

When the Black Mirror episode “San Junipero” aired on Netflix back in 2016, the notion of falling in love within a simulated reality seemed far away – but certainly not impossible.

Six years on, our world has become more virtual than ever, as more people try VR-based dating experiences.

Planet Theta, due to launch later this year, will allow users to take part in a multisensory – albeit virtual – experience with other users.

All you need is a VR headset to access the platform. Whether it’s at the “Enchanted Forest” or “Aaron’s Bar”, the (meta) world is your oyster.
