    Hmm….leaving the usual frivolous lawsuit comments to one side, this story provides another example for what I've been saying it for a while: a photo and online dating profile (entered by the person it's about) just isn't enough to ensure you get the date you're expecting!

    This site is worth checking out:……calls itself "the Yelp of online dating"…can you believe that?

    Would definitely reduce the number of bogus dates you end up on using online dating…..IMHO.

    Newsflash: It is neither the responsibility of the dating service to check the background of every person who signs up, nor should it be. Ultimately, it is YOUR responsibility to investigate the person of interest BEFORE you agree to a date and you should NEVER, EVER invite them to your home until you've done so!
