Read That Profile Another way to spot a fake is to really check out their profile.
Most fake profiles don’t take time to fill in all the sections, or have trouble with correct grammar, or even basic English.
For a long time I wanted to communicate with people in general in a non-chat format.
It was only when I was on vacation with limited access and resorted to exchanging long emails with a friend who was similarly inclined that I realized that what I wanted was penpals.
A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.
Even some of the more clever fake profiles can get “verified” by using a friend’s credit card.
Unless the online dating site is going to go to the extra effort of meeting the single in person, doing a background check, and taking their online profile pictures for them (like Findthe It Factor.com, a personalized dating service), then “verified” means nothing more than the faker has access to a credit card.
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.
