SEATTLE, WA, May 17, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ — The success of their first Free Virtual Dating Day has prompted TangoWire, a community of online dating sites, to repeat the popular offer of free Virtual Dating on their network of over 3,700 sites this Thursday, May 20th. The first Free vDate Day resulted in 40 times more virtual dates than normal and TangoWire wants to repeat that success with their upcoming Free Virtual Dating Day.
CEO Shaun Wolfe explains, “Virtual Dating is a new concept in online dating and many of members are skeptical until they try it. What we discovered on our first Free vDate Day is that our members were simply blown away by the experience. Tens of thousands of members tried out our vDate system and loved the results. The traffic on our network increased dramatically, interaction between members increased, and Virtual Dates went through the roof. Members were having a wonderful time interacting with each other in a virtual reality environment and getting to know each other in an interactive way that goes beyond instant messaging or chat.
“We were so impressed with the results and the feedback we received from our members that we knew we had to offer Free vDate Day again. So many people are looking for that special someone to share their life with, and Virtual Dating is one more tool that can help them find the right person. The TangoWire network is one of the few mainstream online dating services providing Virtual Dating and we want everyone to give it a try and find out just how much fun it is and how it can enhance your online dating experience. Our Free vDate Days are a great, risk-free way to give it a try and meet your match.”
Harvard and MIT researchers recently proved that online dating service members reacted more positively toward individuals after Virtual Dating experiences compared to simply reading profiles or exchanging emails and chatting. Virtual Dating also led to more face to face meetings and more second dates, due in part to the increased comfort level for both parties. Virtual dating allows members to interact using 3D avatars in a relaxed setting such as a museum, nightclub, restaurant, or at the beach. On May 20, 2010, every member of TangoWire community sites will be able to go on unlimited Virtual Dates, or vDates, for no additional cost.
