An innovative new business labeled as Weopia has taken this concept and applied it to online dating. Their site claims to lets you “get an improved sense of the individual”, “work quicker than online dating alone” and “in order to make real world times doubly successful”.

The idea operates such as this: you meet rich women some body on an internet relationship solution. In mail or on the phone you claim that you are going on a virtual date. One of you joins Weopia and pays $5. This individual directs an anonymous e-mail invite to another individual. Both of you develop an avatar when it comes to day. Then you can certainly be involved in one of the activities – fly a hovercraft, go boating, hang gliding.  Or you can remain and “talk” via IM.

The service promises unrivaled privacy and safety settings.
