Introduction to the Annotated Bibliography
Many may believe that communicating online is a very distinct way of meeting people in their own way. They want to have their own type of comfort zone to prey on people that they don’t even know. In most cases, that’s what happens; they are men that prey on women or little children that they meet online through today’s networks such as Myspace, Facebook, Instant Messaging, and others just like these websites. There are many studies that show interest in Internet Dating and the courtship of dating period. The articles and resources are as follows: 1) The Self- Advertisement Approach to Dating: Male/Female Differences; 2) Attitudes on Dating, Courtship, and Marriage: Perspectives on In Group vs. Out Group Relationships by religious minority and majority adolescents; 3) Redefining Firm Boundaries in the Face of the Internet: Are Firms Really Shrinking?; 4) The Anthropology of Online Communities; 5) Digital Dating and Virtual Relating: Conceptualizing computer Meditated Romantic Relationships; 6) Online Communication and Adolescent Relationships. All are relationship sources which are based on courtship and other ways of communicating towards online dating. But the most part about these sources are the tactics that they speak upon about how dangerous it is to communicate online to someone that you don’t even know. And as follows are the abstract and summaries about each article and the importance it is to know about the history of dating, though the internet was not out much long; there is many cases and dangers of internet dating to go around. Attitudes on Dating, Courtship, and Marriage: Perspectives on In-Group versus Out-Group Relationships by Religious Minority and Majority Adolescents Carol Markstrom-Adams

In this recent study, 47 non-Mormon, religious minority high school students and 36 Mormon, religious majority high school students were asked to identify perceived barriers in dating Mormons …..if they were non-Mormon or in dating non-Mormons ….if they were Mormon. They also were asked if they advised dating between members of both groups. More barriers in dating were identified by Mormons, in contrast to non-Mormons. Further, the Mormon adolescents expressed greater reluctance in advising dating between Mormons and non-Mormons. Redefining Firm Boundaries in the Face of the Internet: Are Firms Really Shrinking? Author(s): Allan Afuah

The Academy of Management Review, Vol. 28, No. 1 (Jan., 2003), pp. 34-53 Academy of Management
Here are presented two models of the exploring impact of the emergence and diffusion of the internet on vertical and horizontal firm boundaries. I argue that the effect of the emergence and diffusion of the internet on a firm's boundaries is a function of the firm's determinants of costs, moderated by the information dependence of the firm's value-adding activities and the organizational technology that underpins the firm's primary activities. The Self-Advertisement Approach to Dating: Male-Female Differences Rosemary Bolig, Peter J. Stein and Patrick C. Mckenry

Family Relations, Vol. 33, No. 4 (Oct., 1984), pp. 587-592 National Council on Family Relations
There is a type of content analysis that’s performed on profiles or self-advertisements from a magazine for singles to identify categories of exchange used by men and women. Generally, the findings supported the traditional social exchange notion of dating for men but not for women. That is, men's profiles tended to emphasize attractiveness and other expressive qualities of potential audience in exchange for their own work status and attractiveness.

Family Relations, Vol. 49, No. 2 (Apr., 2000), pp. 187-192
National Council on Family Relations
This article reviews Internet history and culture that has contributed to the recent emergence of a subset of romantic interpersonal relationships known as computer mediated relationships. Characteristics of these relationships in comparison to face-to-face relationships are considered. This information may assist family professionals in developing a research agenda for the new millennium, as well as incorporating new content and strategies into family life education and clinical work in the area of interpersonal relationships. Online Communication and Adolescent Relationships

Over the past decade, technology has become increasingly important in the lives of adolescents. As a group, adolescents are heavy users of newer electronic communication forms such as instant messaging, e-mail, and text messaging, as well as communication-oriented Internet sites such as blogs, social networking, and sites for sharing photos and videos. Kaveri Subrahmanyam and Patricia Greenfield examine adolescents' relationships with friends, romantic partners, strangers, and their families in the context of their online communication activities.

The Anthropology of Online Communities
Samuel M. Wilson and Leighton C. Peterson
Annual Review of Anthropology, Vol. 31, (2002), pp. 449-467 Annual Reviews
Information and communication technologies based on the Internet have enabled the emergence of new sorts of communities and communicative practices-phenomena worthy of the attention of anthropological researchers. Despite early assessments of the revolutionary nature of the Internet and the enormous transformations it would bring about, the changes have been less dramatic and more embedded in existing practices and power relations of everyday life.
