This is where people like to “meet”

Tinder stated that meeting in the virtual world of Animal Crossing has become quite popular. In the early days of quarantine, there were five times as many mentions of Animal Crossing in user bios, with Gen Z mentioning it twice as much as Millennials. In Animal Crossing, users can agree to have their avatars meet up with other avatars at designated times and places in the virtual world and “be together.” There is even a Reddit thread discussing whether or not Animal Crossing should just add dating as an element to their game.
