article in Reuters for more.
25 Aug: A nice 10-tips article for

25 July: Here's something new --
not a dating site itself but a tool to use.
TrueDater posts reviews of
online daters -- the idea is to catch out people who are using false or

2 Feb: Clothes make the man, and first impressions count -- so
what you wear on that first date may mean a lot. Make sure you send
the right message with our outfit -- and if the message is "I'm totally NOT
politically correct" then check out this site I came across
