The Nevermet dating app, like Tinder and its ilk, sees itself as a platform to find a partner, only here VBF’s And VGFs Searching for: Virtual Boyfriends and Girlfriends.

According to philosopher David Chalmers, cyberspace is as real as meat space. So it’s no wonder the same problem is here: How do you find your girlfriend or at least take the first step? Especially when the other person comes in the form of a banana or a bunny.

This is the biggest difference between Tinder and Nevermet. With the latest platform, the real look doesn’t matter.

Metaverian dating: an idea with future potential?

Nevermet was developed by Cam Mullen and Solaris Nite (no artist name or avatar). Together, they created the VR social apps Couch, Somewhere, and Cheerio.

The latter is entirely designed to get to know each other and make social contacts and is said to be particularly popular – which is why the founders of the startup decided to develop the idea further. This is how Nefermette was born, which also attracted a number of investors such as Draper, Boost VC, Greg Castle and Anorak Ventures.
