eHarmony

Who's it for: White-collar cubicle-dwellers looking to meet themselves. Admirers of Dr. Neil Clark Warren.

Match.com

Who's it for: Bros, and the female equivalent.

JDate

Who's it for: Jewish people.

Cupidtino

Who's it for: Apple fans. The pitch is, 'Meet an Apple fanboy or girl.'

How it skews: People who carry around copies of the Steve Jobs biography.

SeekingArrangement.com

Who's it for: Those in search of 'mutually beneficial relationships.'

How it skews: Mostly older men and younger women, though there are also same-sex and older women-younger men opportunites -- just fewer.

How it's unique: ''Men my age are too immature. My current arrangement is wonderful. Unlike other cash strapped students, I am pampered with expensive gifts. My sugar daddy is the sweetest man I know. He is my mentor, my benefactor and my lover.' That's the testimonial on the site.

Hitch.me

Who's it for: People who work too much.

Zoosk

Who uses it: People with Facebooks -- it uses your Facebook profile to populate your Zoosk profile.

How it skews: Both singles and those who meet through Zoosk: the site is attempting to be a way for couples to document their relationship as it goes on.
