Those seeking love online face being struck by scammers, not Cupid's arrow

    Most of those scammed are not stupid but loneliness greatly impairs their judgment. It is a sad indictment on our society that so many individuals past the prime of youth have to live alone, with insufficient human contact of sufficient depth or quality. Is it because of our selfishness and focus on youth and beauty that the vast majority of relationships do not last? Is it because our culture and relentless advertisements sell an ideal of romance that only scammers can satisfy? As a society, we need to take the epidemic of loneliness seriously and come up with ways to ease the unbearable heaviness of living.
