Dating in the virtual world has now become easy with AV Match. It makes your Second Life persona more complex and human as you can now find friends, date, and even establish a long-term relationship.
AV Match has one of the easiest registration methods, provided you already have a Second Life account. It requires only basic information such as your e-mail address and password. After that, you will fill out a form where you indicate your birthday and place of origin, among others. A crucial step is verifying your Second Life account, which you can do by going into the in-world kiosk. Its verification e-mail will already include the link.
If you don’t have a Second Life account, that’s not a problem. Joining is still quick. Choose your avatar and fill out the necessary details. Then you need to download its platform. From the kiosk, you can now click on AV Match to log in.
There are two kinds of profiles to fill out: personal and RL details. All parts of your personal profile are mandatory. These include your profile display name, brief introduction, and more about me sections. The profile display name can be confusing. It’s actually different from your AV Match username and works like a headline for your account to grab other members’ attention. It is limited only to 5 words and up to 25 characters, and all words should be found in the website’s database, which you don’t have any access. At this point, it becomes a trial and error, a process that may end up time-consuming and frustrating.
Your RL profile, which already includes personal attributes like physical characteristics and interests, is optional.
There are different ways to browse profiles: relevance, recently active, new members, age, have RL pictures, and basic or full personal information. Relevance is vague; it’s hard to pinpoint the basis of the results. Meanwhile, if you search according to personal information, the website matches your potential matches’ profile details with yours, although you can also do that in basically all profiles.
If you want to keep tabs on specific accounts, you can add them to Favorites. You can also click on Viewed By and Favorited By to find out if other members have shown interest in you.
You can communicate with potential virtual matches via open live chat, personal messaging, and pass a note. The last one is sort of an ice breaker and sends a one-line sentence to the member.
AV Match looks pretty basic. It doesn’t have the sleekness or the polish of some of the most popular dating websites such as Match.com and eHarmony.com. However, you’ll appreciate the fact the page appears organized. The menus are found at the top and on the side so most of the screen is occupied by matches and profiles.
AV Match is a virtual dating website, which means its main goal is to help you find a date, meet a friend, or seek a long-term relationship for your Second Life account. However, it also doesn’t limit your interaction there. You can take your relationship into the real world, and you can indicate that in your profile. Nevertheless, it may take many rounds of back-and-forth communication since you’re not allowed to share many personal details about yourself like your name and contact information directly into your profile.
There are two membership options available: Basic and Premium. Under Basic, you can get 2 free tokens each month as long as you have a complete and approved profile (which also means you need to include a photo in your profile). You use the token to communicate such as send an e-mail or talk through chat. Sending notes is free. If your recipient doesn’t reply to your e-mail within a month, you will receive a token refund. Five tokens will cost you $550L while 12 tokens are $1,100L.
In Premium, your account is immediately upgraded and will have unlimited messaging and chat. Your profile will also include a Premium Unlimited banner. You don’t use tokens here but instead pay for subscription: 1 month ($1,425L), 3 months ($3,475L), and 6 months ($5,995L).
To place an order, you need to go to the in-world kiosk.
Second Life is all about creating a virtual world that reflects or mimics the real one, so it doesn’t come as a surprise if you will also have a platform for dating. AV Match is a fun way to make your character richer and more real. Not only that, it may even lead to real-life romance.
