Thanks SO MUCH for all your support, and we'll see you in-game!
The inability of teenagers, or apparently mature men, to discuss things like dating and romance is so high that you'd never get more than a few sentences into any conversation about the subject before someone said something stupid.
One of the earlier posters who acted like a complete jerk about it (comparing the entire thing to Second Life, which is just weird) is a superb example.
However, Risa is a dating planet. Go date there. It's not hard, if you have a date. What exactly needs adding?
I speak as a person who is romantically involved with someone I met online - apparently I'm sick for having a completely normal & healthy relationship that happened to begin with two people talking online...
If you want to date and look for relationships... do it on a dating site.
STO is an GAME not Adult Friend Finder.
RISA is a PLEASURE planet NOT a dating planet. If people want to have games on Risa and interactive content fair enough. That would be reasonable. What is not reasonable is treating Risa like a brothel.
Yeah lets go to Risa for sex games shall we ?
Thats going to go down REALLY well with CBS and Cryptic when the response comes in.
Risa is known for its 'Sex games' something which the OP clearly knows.

Risa is a 'pleasure planet' that was depicted 'romantically' so we should make it a 'dating' planet were we can 'meet new interesting people'.
Whats stopping you from meeting people at Sol, Vulcan, Andoria, Memory Alpha etc. ?
What is it EXACTLY about RISA that makes it more valid a spot to meet and date interesting people ?
Is shooting NPC mobs on Risa somehow more romantic than doing it elsewhere ?
'Hey, wanna go kill some Borg with me ?'
'Sure, can we share the loot together
'your so romantic...'
How exactly do people imagine a dating planet working ?
If you want to go on a date... how about getting off your rear end and doing it in the real world rather than on a computer screen in a GAME ?
It shocks me people think this would be a good idea.
Risa is a 'pleasure planet'. I think we can agree on that. But 'pleasure' isn't limited to 'dating'. Not everyone went to Risa to pick up a date. Picard once went there to research artifacts or something - which is his hobby and has nothing to do with dating. Many couples went to Risa to spend time together (Jadzia and Worf, Zek and Ishka), they already had a partner, so they were probably more looking for activities to share, like games, sports or such.
Risa has statues that indicate romantic interest, so maybe it would be a good solution to add an outfit piece along with swimwear (a handheld statue). Players that wish to 'date' on Risa can display it, and everyone else can stay away from them if they are not interested in that sort of activity.
