Conclusion Online Dating is a very risky way of dating people. Who knows if the person on the other end of the computer is really who they claim to be. People have been scammed, lied to, sexually assaulted, and killed from meeting people online. Some individuals may even already be married and act like they are not to cheat on their spouse. It is a lazy and effortless way to find true love, and hiding people from society.
