Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but at a price.
After a little while of chatting and waiting and waiting for responses, My response: Unfortunately, you’re running into the sad situation that is online dating.
Too many women have fake profiles that are used for making money, i.e., directing men to paid porn sites or personal Web sites or just asking men outright for money.
Unless the online dating industry makes a push toward cleaning up their websites, men and women will continue to fall prey to fake profiles.
You Get What You Pay For It seems the “free” membership sites tend to be the ones most likely to have more fake profiles on them.
Though, recently, I learned that averages 10 percent paid profiles and 90 percent free profiles.
The unfortunate truth is that the paid singles don’t know who is free and who is not.
Verified, Schmerified Beware of the “verified” profiles that some sites tout.
The issue of the fake online dating profile continues to escalate like a hurricane, and drown all the real singles out there in online dating land. The issue remains that the anonymity of online dating has opened the flood gates of liars, thieves, cheats, and the sex industry looking to make a quick buck any way they can.
So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?
It’s not as simple as some online dating services claim it is.
Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes.
