Virtual Gifts - Zoosk offers so many ways to interact with potential matches, you may wonder why they'd need another. But the option to give cyber sweethearts a gift is fairly unique among top tier dating sites. Covering romantic mainstays like teddy bears, chocolates and roses, gifts are a cute way to engage someone new. Since they're purchased with the Zoosk coins you earn from other actions on the site, they imply an additional amount of effort to earn the special gifts you send. Read Full Zoosk Review >>

RelyID - RelyID is an identity verification service that lets your matches know that you are who you say you are. While this service validates your name, full address and age, your matches will only actually be able to see your authenticated first name, city of residence and age. Once confirmed, your profile features a RelyID badge. When potential matches see that you have a badge, they may be more likely to initiate communication with you, since you've taken the time to reassure them. This service costs $5.95 for the year.

HowAboutWe

Suggest a Date - The entire premise of HowAboutWe is based on suggesting dates, but you can take it a step further. If you want to meet a particularly interesting match and know exactly what type of date you would like to take him or her on, you can suggest it directly to the person. Your gesture will have a bit more romantic impact than the date ideas that you broadcast, since it's only meant for one special person. Speed Date - Want to see as many dates as possible? With HowAboutWe's Speed Date feature, you can do exactly that. This service lets potential matches know if you are intrigued by their dates, but doesn't inform them if you'd rather skip it. With Speed Date, you'll see a huge cross-section of the site's membership and send a flirtatious nudge to the ones you find most appealing. Given the site's growing membership, this might be a great way to start going on a lot of dates even faster than using the regular interface. Read Full Howaboutwe Review >>
