To help online daters in their pursuit of romance, Cupid.com has created a virtual assistant named Wingman Barney. With a subtle nod to the smooth-talking character from 'How I Met Your Mother,' the virtual wingman helps singles figure out how to navigate the complexities of online dating.

Wingman Barney is a virtual assistant that functions as both a relationship expert answering questions on the Cupid.com blog and as an online aid that helps users with their dating queries. For example, Wingman Barney can help users come up with a creative way to start a conversation with someone they are interested in.

As online dating becomes increasingly popular, tools such as Cupid.com's virtual wingman help users make stronger connections with potential matches.
