Are Completely Free Online Dating Services Better Then Paid Online Dating Sites? See For Yourself

Posted on December 21, 2017 in Uncategorized

Completely free online dating services sounds like the golden ticket you may have been looking for if you’ve considered signing up for an online dating site or Internet dating service. But how do they actually compare to a paid online dating service and can they really help you find romance in your life?

The truth is most of the quality online dating services actually offer some form of free trial period that allows you to get familiar with their website and provides a small taste of the services they offer for individuals looking for a prospective date or romantic partner. Additionally, these free trials will allow online dating browsers and visitors to the site an opportunity to see a few profiles and some photos of current members but that’s about as far as they go. In order to see additional photos, more information and the full online dating member profile a paid upgrade is usually required.

One drawback to a completely free online dating service or site is the concern with security. With the increase of identity theft, fraud, online dating scams and cyberstalking you might actually be better off joining a paid online dating membership just for the additional security it provides with your private information and the details in your online dating profile.

Keep in mind that most free online dating trial memberships also have a time limit placed on them. For example many only allow free and limited access for only two weeks. In order to retain your membership and receive full access to the online dating site you will usually need to complete a paid upgrade.

Finally, don’t forget that you generally get what you pay for. Many of the paid dating membership sites offer specific questionnaires that can accurately match you up with another person that has similar tastes and qualities which ultimately could lead to a better romantic connection which is something that a completely free online dating service may not be able to do.

Online Dating Safety – Don’t Do This Mistake

Posted on December 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

Online dating services is getting more and more popular in the Internet world. In fact, many people worldwide, are members of various online dating services. Statistically, there are more than 40 million singles in the U.S. alone that have tried online dating sites to find romance.

While it is a great and fun  way to find friends, dates, lovers and even marriage, there is risks. There are many scammers out there, that just want to steal your money or to get your email address. In my experience they go after new members… most  dating sites show when you joined.

The most common trick is the visa and ticket scam. Basically it is a scam, where a attractive female from Russia, Ukraine or African countries like Ghana and Nigeria contacts a lonely foreign man. “She” quickly falls in love with him and shortly after announcing her “deep feelings” for him “she” begins to plan her travel to meet the guy in person.

Now the money issues start. She will now ask for help to get the necessary documents like visa and passport. When the guy agrees to that, she pretends to get it and next she will ask for money to ticket and travel expenses. She sends a copy of the visa (fake, of course) and the guy really has no other choice than to send more money.

Of course they will never meet. The scam will go on as long as the guy agrees to send money to her. She will come up with all kind of stories and reasons to send more money.

I got one of the craziest stories from a scammer myself… lol. I was scammed like this the first time I joined a dating site over 5 years ago and this is my own experience. It is a little embarrassing for me to admit, but I fell for it and it cost me some money. After that I did some research and got acquainted with some scammers on purpose just to see how they work.

Here are some warning signs to be aware of:

It’s too good to be true – You just signed up on a dating site and and haven’t even finished your profile and you get email from a very attractive woman.

The woman asks for your email address or ask to you write to her private email in the first letter.

She has posted her location on her profile to be from your region, but in her letter she tells you a story about why she is in Ghana or Nigeria now…  

Any person asking for money, for whatever reason – Do not send money to anybody for any reason.

If you are looking for love online on one of the hundreds of online dating websites, don’t feel lonely, since there are probably millions of lonely guys and gals around the world looking for true love they couldn’t find in their offline lives. The only thing, however, that should raise your eyebrows about online dating sites is the gigantic number of fake profiles created to dupe the people like you. YES! Online foreign dating scams are on the rise and the number of people getting tricked is also increasing at menacing speed.

Financial and emotional loss of the victim in such a scenario is inexplicable. However, you should not get carried away with what people are saying about online dating scams. The truth is, and always remain, that if you are cautious enough, ninety nine times out of hundred, you’ll avoid falling into the trap. And that can be achieved only if you have sufficient knowledge about the tricks these scamsters are up to and their modus operandi. If you are one of the lonely hearts looking to find genuine love online without getting scammed, read on.

The first thing that you need to look for in a suitable partner on an online dating site is his or her profile. The user profile is the first impression of the person you’re about to choose. And as they say, “First impression is often the last impression!” The same holds true in case of people uploading their profile on the online dating websites. First comes the username. The red lines are ‘sex-filled’ username of a girl and ‘handsome-wealthy’ username of a man. If any of these attributes are visible in the usernames of the girl or man, simply look for another suitable option!

Then come the photographs accompanying the profile. If the girl is posing and looking like a drop-dead-gorgeous model or movie star, or the boy has the picture of a tall-dark-handsome man seeming like a model or movie star, chances are that the profile is a fake or of non-serious user who is either after sex or your money. However, this does not mean that such profiles can never be genuine. If all other aspects seem fine to you, then may be you have chanced upon your dream girl or man!

If your date is asking for money in any form for whatever reasons, simply run away for this is the most common trap laid out by the scamsters.

While you are chatting with a user to assess your mutual compatibility, watch out for the delay time of the response from other end. If you are getting replies after a gap of over 90 seconds, chances are that the person on the other end is having multiple chats with other users and simply out there fishing for novice users.

Another common trick that you need to watch out for is the expression of love at an early stage. If the person at the other end is bombarding you with love messages after just a few email exchanges, you know what to do, don’t you? Yeah! Simply stop sending the replies for the person is a fake.
