Dating and games online
This isn’t necessarily hard and fast, but it’s a decent starting point.
There is also a difference between “dating sims” and “ren’ai (romance) games.” The latter are more often done in the style of visual novels or choose-your-own adventures, while the former have some RPG elements, personal stats, and gift-giving mechanics. So where should you begin if you want a fun, romantic, and well-written game without breaking the bank?
Online daters are typically stereotyped as dressing as realistically as possible; many assets on ROBLOX, including packages and hats are stereotyped as "ODer items", and players who wear these items are often prematurely identified as online daters.
Certain community members believe that online daters frequently follow popular username trends. It is unwanted by many ROBLOXians and encouraged by very few people. ODers are also known to not get banned due to the flawed moderation, and ironically, the word oder is filtered.

Aside from not fitting with the kid-friendly nature of ROBLOX, there is also a risk associated with online relationships; online dating is often seen as a predatory act and, in extreme and rare cases, can result in outside interventions. Though ROBLOX's Rules of Conduct prohibit builders from creating games that are designed for players to get together romantically, there are some loopholes to this rule; though a game may not be intended to be used romantically, the nature of the game may promote online dating.
Such examples of common online dating hotspots include role playing games, Girls Only games, and middle/high school/college games.
Some of those weirdos go on to be game developers, and that beautiful marriage of madness and digital potential creates the most random simulation games you’ll ever find....! Looking into it is similar to walking into the romance section of a bookstore for the first time. As with anything related to matters of the human (ahem) heart, there are a number of different types and genres available, catering to various preferences.
Bishoujo are those where you play as a man and have a harem of potential female love interests, while otome games are ones where you are a girl and have multiple male love interests.
