You’ve probably heard of 2nd Life. It is a software program developed in 2003 that allows consumers to create avatars and check out an online world. People through their own avatars can socialize with other people, be involved in specific or group tasks, purchase and exchange property, vacation around the world. Consumers purchase clothing, things, and motions. You will find 18 million users on Second Life.

An innovative new organization labeled as Weopia has had this notion and applied it to internet dating. Their site states permit you to “get a better feeling of the person”, “work faster than online dating by yourself” and “to produce real world times doubly successful”.

The style operates similar to this: you fulfill someone on an on-line dating solution. In e-mail or in the telephone you suggest that you are going on an online big date. Among you joins Weopia and pays $5. This individual delivers an anonymous e-mail invite to another person. The two of you develop an avatar for the big date. Then you can take part in one of many tasks – fly a hovercraft, go boating, hang gliding.  You can also remain and “talk” via I am.
