Looking for love online? There’s a whole world of dating out there that goes well beyond Match.com and eHarmony.com. From avatar dating to “arrangements” to iPhone apps, depending on what you’re looking for, today online dating can be customized to meet your specifications. Here, nine cool options to consider:

Weopia.com
Touting itself as “online dating’s missing link,” Weopia.com offers an “intimate 3D world” where you can interact online before actually meeting in person. Here, you can literally invite the people you meet on other dating sites to join you for a virtual date, complete with avatars that you choose to represent you and your potential partner. Touting plenty of interactive tools to help you explore each other’s personalities – including text and voice chat, and even offering a list of potential conversation topics – this could be the perfect solution for a nervous dater.
Cost: $4.95 for a set of Passkeys, which allows one date for two.

Waiting2Connect.com
This site is “a focused community dedicated to singles.” While the main activity here is dating, the site also presents itself as a place where you can network to find new friends and business contacts in your area, too. Waiting2Connect.com‘s profile system allows members to set up video and photo albums, among other options. Its users tend to be men and women, aged 18 to 40.
Cost: $14.99 per month; $29.99 per 3 months; or $74.99 per year.

SeekingArrangement.com
Looking for a Pretty Woman experience? SeekingArrangement calls itself the premier Sugar Daddy Dating site, and claims to be “a matchmaking website for wealthy benefactors, and attractive guys & gals” who are seeking a “mutually beneficial arrangement.”
Cost: Free for Sugarbabies; but you can upgrade your membership to use full features and search options.

Nerve.com Personals
The Personals section of trendy Nerve.com boasts artsy, funny users and tends to cater to edgier singles. It also includes a gay/lesbian, bisexual and transgender section.
Cost: Instead of charging a monthly fee, users redeem “credits” for contacting someone or chatting.

BeautifulPeople.com
It may not be politically correct, but BeautifulPeople.com was founded on the notion that “people want to be with someone they are attracted to.” Like an elite clique in high school, new members must be “voted in” by members who are of the opposite sex. If you’re deemed “beautiful” by a majority of voters, you’re officially in and are granted access to the site’s global membership for dating opportunities, as well as social events and networking.
Cost: Free (provided you’re voted in).

    Sorry, but the avatar dating thing sounds a little hokey to me. On the other hand, definitely need to find out more about UrbanSignals! very cool concept…

    I’ve always wondered if this whole dating thing online really works

  3. FBNYC says:

    Yeah, I’ve always been a little skeptical about online dating sites, but trying out one of these wouldn’t hurt, right?

  4. uptowngirl says:

    Good to know! I’ve actually heard great stories about couples who found each other online!

    I used the weopia site (with skepticism) on a friend’s advice. It actually helped get to know someone better before meeting. Yeah, its different.

    Avatar dating is cool. It’s spontaneous. You don’t have time to edit what you say, like in other sites. I thought this guy was pretty cool and I was going to meet him at Starbucks, but he invited me to weopia before I could invite him for coffee and it turned I couldn’t stand him. He took off on me in the plane and he cheated at checkers and then argued that he didn’t and got mad. He had creepy answers to questions at the church about weddings. We didn’t click at all, but I liked the stuff he wrote at POF. Maybe he never wrote it! Weopia is free right now. Not sure how long. Saved me wasting time with him for coffee.

    In the summer of 2004 I met my husband on match.com. We married 6 months later. We are not expecting our 2nd child and could not be happier.

    My ex and I met on OkCupid, and we were together over two years and had a baby before we split up. After our split, he met his bride-to-be on OkCupid. I haven’t been that lucky yet, but I have made several friends off of the site.
