They need to make as many contacts as possible—remember it’s a numbers game. You are doing the best you can by being smart and wary of potential fakers. Will enough singles get fed up with the not-so-great state of online dating and demand better from the industry? As a contributor to online dating industry forums, I continue to bring up the issues associated with fake profiles: liars, thieves and cheats, and the accountability of the industry for a solution. Even if you put on your profile in bold letters, “No Fakers or Sex Industry Professionals,” it won’t help. My suggestion for your first contact, if you’re worried they’re not telling the truth, is to ask them outright. The standard industry reply is that “it’s not cost effective” and that “singles won’t pay for it.” Well, singles are “paying for it” in time, frustration, dissatisfaction and with their wallets. Thankfully, the right dating app can help simplify the process, allowing you to make new friends, start a fling, or kick start an endearing relationship that’s as romantic as anything in Woody Allen’s long-standing catalog (it can happen).In addition to the dating mainstays like Tinder and Ok Cupid, there are a growing number of LGBT dating apps that will help you find someone special. Ok Cupid is one of the most well-known dating apps that works with both i OS and Android.Also, if the photo on the profile is suggestive in any way, (and you’re not on an alternative lifestyle or friends-with-benefits site, which by the way, are loaded with fake profiles) or looks like a modeling picture from a magazine, just be aware that there is a high probability that it’s a fake. Unfortunately, there is no surefire way to get these fakers to stop contacting you.They are relentless marketers, as this is a job for them.
Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes.It’s a numbers game and they have tons of fake profiles all over the Internet to be worrying about.Especially, if someone flags them and has their account deleted, they have to create a whole new account.is one that can tell you if the person is who she says she is, and if she has a criminal history.Read That Profile Another way to spot a fake is to really check out their profile.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.There are services that can do background checks for you, if you feel the person is worth looking into further.Verified, Schmerified Beware of the “verified” profiles that some sites tout.Even some of the more clever fake profiles can get “verified” by using a friend’s credit card.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.
