Obsessive internet dating
There is a range of behaviours that can be referred to as Internet addiction.
Other terms for this addiction include Internet addiction disorder (IAD) and net addiction.
A recent study in the USA showed that four per cent of college (university) students aged between 18 and 20 showed problematic internet behaviour.
College and university students may be particularly vulnerable to addiction, yet studies on internet addiction in students typically only use self-selected online surveys, with no control groups for comparison.
The basis of cognitive behaviour therapy is that beliefs trigger thoughts, which then trigger feelings and produce behaviours.

Watch your drink - you don't know this guy and I'm sure if you were "taken ill" he'd "take you home" without the restaurant staff objecting. muahahahaha (Although it would be weird to totally hit it off with the first match, right?
