WINNIPEG FREE PRESS - Feb 26 - Weopia.com is a new 3-D virtual world dating service. Wilkie and his co-creators claim it will aid the extinction of the scary beast known as the awkward first date. Singles don't click on to Weopia to find a date. Potential couples who have already connected elsewhere in cyberspace send their avatars there on a virtual date to find out how well they'd click in real life. Avatars communicate through voice and text chat. In the near future Weopia visitors will be able to create their own custom avatars, right down to skin colour, hairstyle and physique. Weopia is currently offering a free limited trial period.
