In the fast paced digital age, online dating has become a norm nowadays. It always brings to mind the commercial that put forth the point, "Not everything you read on the internet is true!" Sadly this goes for online dating, especially for online dating. My first word of advice is to PAY for your dating site. Free dating sites are just that, free. And open to well, every person just looking for a hookup. That typically means every person looking for a hookup that might not have a job and perhaps have other undesirable things in their background.
