Frequently Asked Questions about Online Dating
What is online dating?
Online dating services allow singles to meet and communicate over the Internet, in order to facilitate a romantic connection. Typically, in order to use an online dating service, you start by creating a profile with basic information about yourself such as gender, age, location, and interests, and at least one photo. Most online dating services allow you to browse or search through a database of member profiles, although a few, such as Chemistry.com and eHarmony, only allow users to view profiles of matches who have already been deemed compatible by a computerized matchmaking system. Members can communicate by sending messages through the dating website without revealing any personal contact information.
