Choosing to date online means navigating a world full of predators, knuckleheads, and potential marriage partners.
If you are in a zone with potential for marriage, look there first before searching online.

It is better to have no marriage at all than a shell of a relationship built on a sand bar of lies.

There is always the slight minority that could end up killing me. Not to be coy, but it depends on the risk you are taking.

For the most part, the risks of online dating are avoidable.
