When two people meet and date in a virtual world online with the intent of being together in real life. People who participate in Virtual Courtships are not initially bound by looks, age, location, and sometimes gender, thus providing a much greater real life dating pool. Virtual Courtships bypass flawed algorithms on static profile-based dating sites, allowing for real time, constant interaction.
"Matchsticks and I had an entirely Virtual Courtship. We had met as friends, fell in love, and decided to be together before we had actually met in person. I lived in the US, he was in Australia, and while skype video did a lot to connect us, the majority of our time together was on Second Life, where we met."
