On line dating is not for me. It is a problem for kids who spend hours charting on line with strangers. The dangers often featured in the press had been scary. Parents must educate their children about scams inherent in on line dating.

I real like the site. God bless you all.

I think online dating should be banned. It just means that once your in a relationship, they might propose online but you haven't met in person, you are basically committing your future to a total complete stranger. Even if they're a friend online, you run the risk of knowing someone who are not what they say they are.
