    Busy with a site. My father in law was trying to create a profile on a dating site, he was like, sigh I have to put in my e-mail and my city and they need to know everything. Nevermind.

    I won't say a lot of people are like this, but why do we need this? Apart from mailing lists, why do we need people to verify their e-mail, birthdate and city. Why can't we just - username & password.

    I was just wondering.

    It is required to verify your email to avoid spammers, bots and people giving out fake emails. Emails which can help people recover their accounts. Considering it is a dating site I would assume the birth date is required in order to sort people based on age. Same with location is to find people who are close to his location.
