In the old days, single people often relied on friends and family to introduce them to potential partners.

It was known as the “blind date.” Today, the blind date is often replaced by online dating and what our friends and family often did for us in the past the computer now does. Whether you have been online for years, in the “should-I-really-do-this?” phase, or somewhere in between, this seminar provides you with information, caveats, step-by-step instruction and encouragement. Motivational speaker Constance Hallinan Lagan discusses the five top-rated online dating sites, photos, profiles and profile headers, winking versus e-mailing, phone conversations, the first meeting, conversation starters, online dating scams, and online dating safety tips.

Consider the statistic: The unemployment rate ranges between 8 and 9% and that does not include those whose unemployment benefits have run out, those who have not held a job long enough to qualify for unemployment benefits, and the seniors who have stopped looking after being beaten down by ageism.
