- Internet dating is one of the most popular ways to meet a potential person that meets your needs for your ideal relationship.

We use search engines such as Bing or Google to find information.
Online dating is dangerous because anyone can create a false profile that makes other people believe they are real but then lead to letdowns, predators and criminals use these sites to find victims, and finally because these sites portray themselves as a trusting site when it is just filled with false advertisement.
There are many online dating sites such as match.com, eharmony.com, christianmingle.com, and much more.
It also allows people to get themselves out to a specific group that may or may not have been able to reach without this source.
