You can specify religious preferences, and even the body type of the partner you are looking for.
The first thing to do if you decide to try Internet dating is to build your profile.
This can include your hobbies and interests, life history, hopes for the future, whether you have children or not, and what you are looking for in a date.
A photograph is optional, but many sites claim that a photograph increases the number of people who look at your profile.

Internet dating has become one of the biggest and most successful business ventures on the World Wide Web.
