Teen female dating profiles
From Bebo through to My Space, Facebook, Linked In, Twitter and beyond, I’ve used the whole range of tricks from flattering camera angles to (tragically) writing easily Google-able ‘inspirational quotes’ in my profile in my attempts to appear like a rounded and likeable individual.

I wanted to become that kind of person, whatever 'that' was, so I projected 'that' image and hoped someone would come along and cultivate sophisticated tastes in me.
However, while using dating websites as a kind of set of resolutions to be a better person is sweet and misguided but probably forgivable, lying about unavoidable truths about yourself is an altogether different matter.
Once the sole preserve of people who exist entirely on the internet for one reason or another, it has steadily and stealthily infiltrated the lives of Normal People.
