It's really an embarrassment to any society who needs to advertise to get dates. It's sad enough that parents have to go to the park and post profiles of their ADULT kids on boards as a means to get dates for them. Relationships of any kind should not be based on money or fraud. You might ask 'how is this fraud?' Because most of these people are BUYING dates, just to show off in front of their parents, so their parents won't hassle them when they go back home for the new year. This is not genuine or sincere. It's not honesty; it's deceit. Therefore, it's fraud.
