    That's how crazy people find each other.

    I am living proof. I wouldn't recommend it to my sworn mortal enemies. People that date online fall into two basic categories: People who are bored, and people who are lunatics. Entirely unsatisfied with their lives, group A seeks to be sought. They have a void that can't be...
