  • What are your thoughts on "dating" worlds?

    Personally I don't like the idea of them being allowed. A whole world built on the idea of finding someone to "date" in a game that has a large amount of kids playing. I feel like people will be predatory no matter what but allowing these kinds of worlds seems sus.

    My main concern is what happens after someone meets. Date worlds seem like the best place for a predator to hang around. Obviously gathering is not against the rules but if you are gathering in a world to attempt to "date" a player, what are you really trying to do? Especially when you know nothing about who that person is. They could be 12 or 40.

    A friend was telling me about how there is a massive issue of people being predators in-game. What do you think would be the solution to this? Obviously we can report people but how can we be proactive and stray away from even allowing it to happen on a large scale like "dating" worlds? I by no means have a lot of solutions but not allowing people to make and participate in "date" worlds seems like a good first step.

    I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions on this. What's your take on "dating" worlds? Vote on the poll as well.

    Most people in dating worlds are boys dressed up in girls' clothes so they can try and squeeze in some wls from a guy lol.

      Nah I don't like them, dating worlds are pretty toxic.

          I don't like it but sometime it's a good place for trolling people

            You do you. If you want to go to dating world, so be it.

            Giving people the freedom to meet new people and socialising isn't all that bad

              Worlds like LOVE and LOVES have been part of the community for years now. These worlds have evolved to be more of a hangout spot for players to chat rather than worlds focused on dating.

                Been to LOVE quite often in the past. Its more of a place where people just chill and talk than dating.

                  I think that the main meaning of one has been roleplaying. Predators exist everywhere in this world, it's a sad but true thing and quite hard to avoid. Tbh I don't think that there's nothing wrong with em cause most of the players in that type of worlds these days are either trollers or just people who just wanna make new friends & chill n chat with others. I rarely see people actually building up a dating roleplay anymore.

                    I haven't visited those so called "dating worlds" for a long time and I try my best not to. When I was younger and I for some reason used to go to those, they were just a place for immature kids to f*ck around and I believe they still are. The worlds as themselves aren't bad, but it's the players who can't use them properly and they turn them into meccas of toxicity and debauchery.

                    Personally wouldn't mind making them illegal, but I don't think that's really an option. It's not the fault of the owners of these worlds that the worlds are terrible.

                      I don't think anybody likes those worlds, personally I avoid them at all times.

                        Worlds like LOVE or other dating worlds are actually not all bad. Most people do not go there to actually find a date, but just to make friends and hang out.. also most people on Growtopia have sense, just like you need sense to avoid getting scammed, people have sense about not meeting up with strangers and not online dating, so I personally don't think it's a problem.

                            Users mostly go there to meet up with new friends and hangout with friends rather than actually dating, but some also go there to date. Yes, there are possibilities that a young user will fall prey to a predator, this may not only happen in dating worlds but also in random worlds. But of course a higher possibility in these kind of worlds since there are more people in those worlds as it is a world made to socialize with others. As long as they do not share their personal information I think it will be fine. It's hard and not safe to trust in-game players.
