Netflix has released the first trailer for Sexy Beastsan upcoming reality series where people will try to find their soulmates while dressed as animals and other creatures.
Sam, who was totally new to the life sim franchise, was on a date with a boy she had met on Tinder. He was too nice to bring it up, she says. He took her on a tour of his island, showing off spots like a garden flush with flowers. After encouraging her to take whatever resources she needed from the island to kickstart her own fledging getaway package, he pulled out a gift.
It was a nice gesture, but not enough to save the boy from the volatile waters of dating. While the coronavirus pandemic has forced widespread social distancing measures, dating life continues unabated. But rather than going out to the hot new brunch spot or a dimly lit bar with cheap drinks, lovebirds are exploring their digital options. On queer dating site Lex, many of the posts now have people asking for sexting partners who are willing to receive and encourage nudes.
Speed dating events have moved on to Zoom, where participants break off into random rooms for quick chats. Platforms like Tinder, meanwhile, are temporarily allowing users to match with people around the world for free.
These options have their benefits, but they fail to capture key elements that define dating: the process of getting ready and doing yourself up, and the transportive act of going somewhere and doing something. A good date is interactive, not just a series of exchanges.

Perhaps this is why Animal Crossing has emerged not just as a popular platform for dating, but an effective touchstone that brings people together. Part of the reason it seems to work as a pull is that the game itself encourages social interaction.
Items and furniture pieces appear on islands randomly, and often only in select color ways, meaning that if you want to set up a dream room, you probably have to trade with another player. Not only does fruit originating from other islands sell for a premium, you also get an achievement and Nook Miles for collecting all the comestibles.

Animal Crossing is also a good failsafe — no matter how the date goes, you still get something out of it. Madeline says she matched with someone on Hinge who started the conversation by asking about her native fruit. Maybe he only wanted me for my apples, who knows.
I have been swiping right on a lot of profiles on Tinder these few days because everyone has started putting Animal Crossing on their bio. Not looking to date now, looking to visit your town and drain all its resources from you and maybe a date.

But if the date goes well enough to keep things going, Animal Crossing is also a great way to keep your prospective beau engaged with you. Ian, a Tinder user who is still in contact with their Animal Crossing date, says they used the occasion to create mementos.
Animal Crossing has become such a staple in our lives that at least one Tinder user I spoke to, Chelsey, says she bought a console specifically for a New Horizons date. Often, those gifts are pink — her favorite color. Lady Brittanya Twitch streamer who spoke to Polygon over Twitter, has built her entire island around the idea of Animal Crossing dates. She has set up multiple romantic scenes around town her where players can sit down, take in the intergalactic-themed sights, and chat over candlelight.
