This company is owned by the same people who own the telepersonals phone service. It currently consists of Avenia, for heterosexuals and man to man or woman to woman for
homosexuals. You can view written ads from this
service or you can listen to telepersonals ads in Real Audio. This company offers free browsing
by three different categories: dating, romance and intimate encounter. They also allow for instant
messaging with other online members. The instant messaging service is done in frames which is
