Facebook's new virtual reality dating show looks like more fun than most first dates.
Thankfully, the future is here to step in and change all that: Meet Virtually Dating.
The show, which was launched on Facebook on Tuesday, and created in conjunction with Condé Nast Entertainment, provides a look into the exciting possibilities to come for single people everywhere. Sick of setting up first dates over drinks? Looking for something new to spice up the experience of meeting someone for the very first time? Let virtual reality solve the problem. Instead of meeting up for a drink at your favorite bar, take your latest love interest to the moon and back.
Now, let's be clear: This isn't a scenario where your partner is a virtual avatar who you pursue in lieu of a real human being. Rather, you and the person you're going on a date with are hooked up to virtual reality headsets that allow you to travel together to the farthest reaches of your imagination.
As this video shows, the experience could strike you as either horrifying, or completely hilarious and thrilling. Our take? Nothing will break up the monotony of that initial icebreaker with a potential partner more than seeing them as a dancing cactus.
