"There are 100 [virtual] weddings a month right now, which is mind boggling," Shuster said, and they often lead to real long-term relationships. Mosel created Av Match, a dating profile site similar to or Ok Cupid for users' Second Life avatars."People will send me pictures of their [real] kids. The site currently has 20,000 members from 50 to 60 different countries.
But the Riselings and many other couples have found that their avatar attraction extended far beyond the computer screen.Over the next few weeks, they would go to amusement parks, take walks along the beach, tour architecturally-interesting houses and stay up through the night talking.In September, they decided to take things to the next level and see each others' faces for the first time.Sean and Meta, 37 and 38, respectively, met as avatars.They make up two of approximately seven million registered users of Utherverse, a 3D virtual world geared to an adult audience with a design that was inspired by Amsterdam’s red light district.Finding Virtual Love MMORPGs cater to the needs of a diverse range of users -- "I don't like to call them players," Utherverse co-founder Brian Shuster said.
Avatars can attend and participate in educational classes, political town halls, live comedy shows, DJ performances and entrepreneurial endeavors. A study released this month by the Visa-owned research group Play Span found that almost one third of the general gaming population uses real money in virtual games as game dollars can be bought with real dollars (230 Lindens in Second Life translates to 1 USD plus a 30 cent fee; one Ray in Utherverse roughty translates to 7 cents, although the actual cost shifts based on the world's market prices).
They picked a date to meet in October in Oklahoma City, halfway between Meta's home in Ozark, Mo., and Sean's home in Walsh, Colo.
The next month, Meta and Kinzee moved to Colorado with Sean and Josie.
Sean and Meta now celebrate two wedding anniversaries.
Decked out in matching jeans, cowboy hats and black boots, they had their real wedding in July 2010 in front of Sean's family and a justice of the peace in a small church in Colorado.
