Dating sites are now the preferred way for singles to find their soul mate. Unfortunately, the "crooks of love" have understood, and false profiles are multiplying online. Whether their goal is to deceive sentimentally or to scam Internet users in love financially, the consequences are never trivial for their victims.
If one of the ways to avoid these scams is to register on a paid dating site, which facilitates the "sorting" of false profiles, all singles do not necessarily have the means and the desire to pay out of money to make serious meetings. We have already shared with you a comparison of the best dating sites and a site like Mutch offers an even more in-depth study to find a serious dating site.
But before you start, learn to detect false profiles to find love, the real, online.
When you go to a dating site, the first thing you look at is the profile picture of the registered singles. So, if you find yourself facing a beautiful girl, likewise if the photo is of professional quality, you may have some doubts about the reliability of his/her profile.
Nevertheless, to raise the mystery, check his/her complete profile and see if you see several pictures of her, in casual outfits like a jog for example (and not only in evening dress or lingerie). This could indicate that this is a real profile.
To be clear, you can even check, via Google images, if the profile picture is present in their database. The search engine can then tell you the other sites on which this photo could be published.
The ideal, when you doubt to face the physical reality of a single, is to propose a discussion via the webcam. All your doubts will be lifted if you find yourself in front of her through screens. On the other hand, be careful not to propose it to her right away. Otherwise, she will think that you are only interested in her physique and not in her moral qualities.
Similarly, you can request the phone number or nickname on Facebook so you can view additional information about it. In case of refusal, you could face a false profile (or a person who does not want to reveal too quickly, do not be too suspicious).
Finally, one of the ways to unmask a fake profile on a dating site is the conversion with the person. If it is poor enough, it is either a single with whom you have a little affinity or a person looking for something other than a serious meeting.
Moreover, if it asks you directly to converse via another platform, or if the spelling leaves (really too much) to be desired escape! This is probably a person based abroad who could, after several exchanges, ask you for sums of money, with more bizarre arguments than others.
