    I oppose internet dating

    because anything that you get easily can be lost easily. if you are shopping for a mate online as easy as you would shop for shoes, it can't be for real. every person you're messaging is messaging ten other people too and they are all doing it just for the attention. just for...

    I believe you can develop a deep respect for someone you talk to and spend time with over the enternet, but its pretty much like falling in love with a fictional character. Knowing somebody and being able to interact with them, to be able to physically express your love.. is...

    The Search For Love Begins..

    I had taken a big step. I had entered into the heady giddy world of internet dating by putting myself down in prose and staking a claim on the sea of love. I sat back and pondered what might happen and was very surprised when, on checking my profile that 12 e-mails had arrived...

    Why it is called internet dating? You can't really go on a date with someone on the internet can you? Unless you take your laptop with you and have the camera on. Don't think having a relationship online works out. For some it does and that is fantastic but for most it all ends...

    Not just internet dating,
