Dating On Club Penguin?

I found this article on TheVerge.com about kids going on "dates" on Club Penguin. Part of it says:

Online dating for middle schoolers is pretty primitive. "First, you find a good looking one," one user explained in a YouTube video entitled "How to get a girlfriend on Fantage." "Then you ask her to be ur girlfriend. Tip! Wear good clothes so she’ll say yes!"

 Kids pair off by asking "say 123 if u want me" and break up just as abruptly — like, five minutes later — by dropping a quick "brb" and then disappearing to another server. Boyfriends and girlfriends can do little besides chat, go to the virtual pizza parlor, play games against each other, and send heart emoticons back and forth.

So, what do YOU think about this? Have you ever been on a Club Penguin "date"? Or had a virtual girlfriend/boyfriend?

Yes, sadly it was dumb. I don't recommend it for anyone because of potential safety hazards. It's not appropriate for children to be doing this. You couldn't even actually meet the person nor should you want to because you might find someone you weren't hoping for. You couldn't actually kiss them or anything so it seems to be worthless. Also, it's a kid's game so it looks extremely abnormal to see two penguins pretending to kiss each other.

I actually used to do this all the time. I'd go as far as adding them to my buddy list and then I'd delete them and disapear.

Lol, dating over a computer? That's sad. Work up the courage and ask a real girl on a date.

What's the use of dating on CP if you don't even know them personally in real life. 2 girls asked me out even though I was a non member, and the funny truth is that IRL, I'm a girl who dressed like a boy with non member clothes on CP and had a boy like username, which is Fire4564 XD I actually never told the girls I was a girl too..
I'd always make excuses to log off CP and then I'd delete them off my friend list :P

Nope. Online dating is stupid and pointless, IMO.

YUP, so many times, just wear the right stuff and next you know you have 10 or 20.
BTW I had one that chased me across servers just because I befriended them

I used to do this. But it's pointless. You might not even meet them again, and if you do then you've got five other girlfriends or boyfriends.

I did once have a girlfriend, but its pointless. Reason? When you have a girlfriend and waste time dating when it turns out to not be a real date, after a month you forget each other and realize you wasted time on getting a girlfriend and having a fake date.
