Dating Online can give you an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease). Those who date online meet an abundance of interesting and attractive people. The unfortunate thing is that when two interested people go on a "date" it invariably leads to sex. While sex is good and natural between two human beings who are interested and attracted to one another, online dating can open the door to serious problems. Online dating brings the opportunity-to-close ratio for sex into overdrive. The more sex you have, the more likely you are to catch a sexually transmitted disease. Be careful! STD's can lead to death if you're not careful. If STD's don't scare you, how about becoming a Sexaholic? Or even, a Sexaholic with a non curable STD? Scary stuff.  Meetfreegirls
