Years ago, when I was a kid and had no idea what I was doing, I used to date on Club Penguin for fun. So one day I randomly started going out with this guy, and then a few days later he comes to my igloo and says hi so I say hi back and when I gave him the heart emote he walked away from me and said "I'm taken."
I was so shocked he had the nerve to dump me without even telling me! Then he was like "we can be still be friends." I was thought to myself is this guy for real?! So I did what I always (used to) do in an awkward dating situation - lie and say we're friends and log off and log on on a different server and delete the penguin as a friend. That was so embarrassing.

I remember when they went as far as removing the heart emote because people were using it "inappropriately." People were so desperate they started saying the word "heart" as a replacement until CP brought it back a month later because of so many complaints. Those were the good old days when they actually listened to us.
The game has changed over time. I remember one holiday I went on and all the boys were asking the girls to be their valentine. I probably got asked out three times that day by random people but then the next year everyone was acting like the holiday didn't exist! So weird....maybe today will be different.
Do you believe in dating on Club Penguin?
