is it better to date someone that you met on the internet or in the same neighborhood? online dating sites have images of girls/boys that are cute and they might match your hobbies, dreams, etc., but the information could be fake and she/he might be a boy/girl. local dating you know some of the girls/boys in your block, but you might not like their personalities or their looks. to me, i think that online dating is better. even if you can't get a girlfriend/boyfriend on a website, you can still make friends with them and get to know them.
