OKCupid is something that a few friends passed on to me recently. It's really incredibly cool - for a start, it's totally free, which is pretty rare for online dating sites.
What's really intriguing about it though is that it's all based around questions and answers. The more questions you answer about yourself - and the kind of person you're looking for - the better it can give you matches. They've got some Math PhDs running the numbers on this site, and as a result they're really confident about their matching algorithm. The more info you put in, the more likely you are to find someone you're compatible with - and so on.
It's also really addictive, because they have plenty of silly tests for you to run. Give it a shot - it's a lot of fun.
