It's a reality that there are people out there who are wired to prey on young people.

The Internet provides them with a playing field like no other area of their lives.

The ODA Code of Practice is binding on members of the Association.

Please note that a complaint submitted through the online platform will not be considered unless you have raised it with us first.

We are a member of the Online Dating Association (ODA) which was set up to ensure high standards of behaviour by dating service providers serving the UK.

There are tips to keeping yourself safe online, including not giving out personal information, being skeptical of what the other person tells you, and guarding your heart.

People who will want to prey on you will lie to make you think they are just like you, think like you, act like you.

Most of the sites claim to be for teen online dating but they are either places for pedophiles to prey upon vulnerable teens or random chat rooms.

As Christians go, there are even fewer teen online dating sites that cater to those looking to edify their faith while also seeking a dating relationship.

The ODA provides general information on common enquiries users have about dating services but will not deal directly with individual complaints which are properly the responsibility of member companies.

The ODA monitors enquiry and complaint levels and the issues complained about.

Not surprising, but still it is no more likely that a teen would find a relationship in an online environment than in math class.

There are so many dangers inherent in anything we do online, and teen online dating sites present real peril to those that use them.
