My son married a girl he met on the net. They are wonderfully happy after a year. Not one argument and I've never seen him so happy. So it can happen.
But, the total anonymity of the net invites all kinds of trickery from people who would take advantage of you. Do you really know who you're talking to? They can send you a photo, but is it really that person?
Try the Yahoo personal ads...no charge there. BE CAREFUL!
And if you do, ask if he has an uncle for me: I'm not picky - don't care how tall, don't care what car he drives, don't care what he does for a living, don't care what he looks like. He does, however, have to be creative, intelligent, funny and nice. I'll be waiting!
