Profile Verification: Why is it So Vital to Dating?

When you talk to someone for the first time in a bar or restaurant or even at work you meet them face-to-face. You know they are there and can usually tell if they are a certain age, sex or weight. Sure, they might be economical with the truth and not give you their real name or phone number. But they are REALLY there in front of you, talking to you. So you can be more confident that they are real. Even with the beer goggles on!
