Most services also encourage members to add photos or videos to their profile.

Online dating (or Internet dating) is a system that enables strangers to find and introduce themselves to new personal connections over the Internet, usually with the goal of developing personal, romantic, or sexual relationships.
An online dating service is a company that provides specific mechanisms (generally websites or applications) for online dating through the use of Internet-connected personal computers or mobile devices.
Imagine scrolling through a multitude of single people on an online dating site.
You find an interesting candidate; their profile catches your attention, their pictures captivate your eyes, and the smooth way they chat with you online keeps you fascinated with their persona.
There's nothing wrong with being 10 lbs heavier or 4 inches shorter than what you'd like to be.
