Usual scams are well known for most of the people. There can be simple not serious lies, but there are huge serious cases. To avoid them you should be aware of their peculiarities and the next will help you with that. Read the next stories and get know how to avoid to be scammed.

1. The other person, the other life.

When we meet a person in real life, we watch at his appearance first. The same story is about dating sites. When you register there, you try to show your best. But there is one disadvantage – people hide in front of the computer and can show us the different information, not the real, just to seem more beautiful. And when you find it out, you can name it a scam.

So, here is one good way to find out the lies. If a person sounds strange and you do not believe him at 100%, just ask him questions as much as you can.

If you are sure that a person tells you the truth, ask for a photo to send for you. But take into consideration that a person may send you any photo from any period of his life. So, you should also not believe it for sure.

Mind that there may be emotionally unstable people. To be sure in a person don’t date him in quiet places, better meet on public, tell your close people, that you are on a date and where it is, and don’t spread too much information about yourself.

A famous on line magazine offers you to do the next:

  • Don’t give your full real name on the site and get new anonymous email account. Don’t enter too much information about yourself on this account.
  • Don’t mention your home telephone number anywhere. Only use your mobile phone number if necessary. If a person knows your home number, he is able to find your address easily. (There are scammers, who will find your address even without this number, but this is not an easy deal).
  • Use your car or whatever to drive to the place of dating and back home. Don’t let an unknown person know where you live. If there is no such an opportunity, ask your friend to do this or call a taxi.
  • If you visit a public place on the date, pay some part of money for the bill. In this case your partner will have nothing to fait from you as a return.

2. A married one.

The recent research showed that the most part of men, who are registered on dating sites, are already married. But there is no certain number for women.

Find out a married person with the help of the next advice, though it will be difficult sometimes:

Watch for the photo carefully. If a person is married, he will probably use a dark unattractive photo. People do this, because if a picture will be too attractive, somebody may notice and recognize him.

Your couple asks for your number, but doesn’t give his one. It is also safer, as he in his turn can use any different number to call you or simply block is so not to let you know the real number.

The time period, when your partner contacts you, is limited or regular. If a partner calls you at some special periods, it may mean that he chooses a moment when his wife or other people don’t hear him. He may not answer your calls for a long time. You may send him messages and get a response only after some hours.

When you knew your partner a good piece of time, but he doesn’t want you to be introduced to his friends and family. Usually married people want as less people as possible to know his lover. You may ask him this question, as why is he hiding you or information about his close people.

3. Email scam, but not a date.

Some of the dating may not be as they are at all. It may be just a scam or email marketing.

It may often happen when you go to the dating site for the first time. Also there it can be the first time you are registered there and chat with people. From the first minutes of your chatting you are asking to give an email address and spam comes therefrequently. But you will never also meet this person and will never know the person. Well, this is rather annoying.

So, the solution exists after all. Just don’t tell anyone your email name. Only you know for sure that a person is real, you may let him know this. It is even better to create a separate anonymous address in order to leave it in case something of the sort happens.

4. Blackmailing: a dangerous scam.

And now we moved to the most serious and disappointing way of scamming – shakedown by women (there are even men, who introduce and act like a woman).

The situation is that a person tells that he really likes you and wants to see you. Then as he sees that you trust him, he starts asking for money. Usually he needs money for a ticket to see you. Sometimes somebody is ill. You send money and a person disappears forever.

But this situation is easy to predict and recognize. Don’t believe people who ask for money. Scams on dating sites have a long history. But nowadays this particular way is only gaining momentum. I hope that I have helped you a lot. Now you may feel safe and try the methods, which were described above.

Let’s Decide, Why On-line Dating Is Not Easier than in Real Life

When you fail to seek for love in real live and go to the Internet, you will discover that it’s not as easy as sometimes it seems from the first sight. Every beginner in this “sphere” makes a range of mistakes, which you should avoid. And here is a thing, which you should pay an attention to. Here is an opinion from the woman’s sight, a woman, who looks for love on line.

Well, dating sites are like a catalogue. You come, choose and try to compete and survive there. The strongest are the best here. You put descriptions of yourself and see information about others, provide photos of you in different situations, from cute photo at home or a crazy picture from somewhere. You see whether you approach someone or not. In many cases you start criticizing yourself, but that’s OK. Such a feeling is good for dating sites to survive; otherwise everybody on these sites would have relations with each other. But still it is not an easy thing to courtship after a woman, totally as in real life.

Find here several reasons, which will show you why on line dating is not easier than meeting in real life:

1. Men make photos of themselves in the mirror.

So, on line dating has become safer in the recent years. But still, the quality of the pictures, typed there, are really poor and their quality is constantly getting lower. You never know, whether the boy or a girl from a photo is cute and nice. The first impression may be so damaged that there is no interest in it further. Men take their photos in the mirror in such poses that they seem not what they really are. He seems like a too self-assured person, whom I would not like to get acquainted with.

2. A character with no photo.

There is a range of such people, who do not have a photo on the profile, but have suchlike things written there, as if they would send you the photo if you ask for it. Or somebody tell you beforehand that you must like him no matter what the photo is. But if a person has no photo, I will even not be interested in you. Such people may seem strange, unattractive and too shy. Nobody will spend time on your requests when there is a range of interesting personages all around.

3. People who wink for the photo.

Well, let me say that we do not often give “winks” to each other in real life. Still, sometimes it may seem as a problem with your nervous system. But as for me, winking means a kind of aggression. It seems to me that most of people feel the same. So, don’t people be confused and feel uncomfortable while chatting with you. One guy did the same when I had a conversation with him on a forum. We talked for a while and then he disappeared for some time. After this period he suddenly sent me a “wink”. A question arouse in my mind, that how could it be so?

4. Sympathetic headlines.

Sometimes I read men’s profiles and have kind of mixed feelings. When you read something like “Nice Guy Who Finishes Last”, what would you feel? It seems like they don’t like themselves, they are sorry for even existing here. Such people don’t deserve my attention and time to conversation. I even automatically have no desire to get acquainted with him. It is really better to write a quotation of a famous person or a joke, than making people feel pity for you.

5. Talks about destiny.

Many men use unsuitable word in all cases and situations. How many times have I heard such clichés as if I was somebody’s destine, other people were searching for me for the whole like or something of the sort. Well, from one side it flatters me, but from the other side, I can’t distinguish between those people, who are cheating me, and those, who are really honest with me. I’m too tired of such responses and they are no more interesting for me and even sound silly.

6. Predefined rejections.

Well, this point is still strange for me, you know. I start feeling on line dating no more than a business. It seems like a response from job, for example. It is lack of warmth and friendliness there. I feel so that I must answer a person who wrote me, because he spend some time on it and put all his heart there. I can’t just ignore him. But now I even have no particular feeling about it. Sometimes it is maybe better to do this, although I do not appreciate it. I see that it is normal for Internet world of dating now.

7. Hunting.

While you are afraid for your information to be hunted for in real life, think about the world of Internet. Thousands or even millions of people can find it, read and examine it. One day a person wrote me that he found my profile and blog through Google. So, I was interested in it and tried to do the same. I went to Google, entered my personal information, but nothing happened. I was so frightened! So, there is so much space in the Internet, where you can work!
