Webcam local dating sites
Participation in each Wink Up will cost .99 through Pay Pal — less than you're likely to spend on an in-person speed dating event — but it's free while the site is in its infancy.
If you get cold feet or meet someone you want to be exclusive with before the event starts, you can cancel your registration and get your money back as long as you make the move at least 24 hours in advance.
It's a bit like Chatroulette, but without the naked creepsters (one hopes) and with an aim at establishing real connections between people.
It's set up to be a bit less random than something like My Chance Romance, too. Just log in before the event starts and make sure your camera is working, and you'll get connected with your potential matches.
Now here's the fine print: Wink Vid currently only offers Wink Ups in the Chicago area, but expansion to more cities is planned.
