I have always felt that using online dating sites are like playing Russian Roulette. The sites do not background check either the men or the women and everybody knows that a convicted domestic abuser would never have a profile that's honest like, "Shy Convicted Domestic Abuser Seeks Quite Single Female....". Having said that, would you be more inclined to join a service that required background checks that insured a greater level of accuracy of profiles and security, or do you feel that is too much work and effort?
Personally for me, i dont think i would ever go that route. I think i would love to engage in one on one communication face to face..and not have to worry about who the other person really is on the other side of pc..
When it comes to online relationships.. you're really going out on a limb. Many people are fakes as well. They'll put anyone's picture just to get attention. I believe that when doing this you have to be very careful. Get to know the person extremely well before ever thinking about meeting them in person.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who'd worry if, say, my daughter (who's engaged) considered online dating. I know people use it all the time, but I sure wouldn't be comfortable with it.

A lot of people are saying that the congressmen (and women?) who voted against background checks are cowards, cowing down to NRA pressure. I don't believe they are cowards. I think you have to have a basic...

Has anyone had any luck with the free dating site, Plenty of Fish? I tried it and so far I'm not impressed. It's not the site, it's the people on it. Too many fakes, liars, and psychopaths. I noticed that in my area,...

So many of us are busy everyday at the office that we literally do not have much time to pursue relationships. Years ago people married the people they "ran into" in their neighborhood, office, etc.,...
