If you have a story and would like to share your experiences with internet dating and dating websites please feel free to email it to us! have also focused on the lighter side of internet dating and dating websites as opposed to the darker side.
Internet dating has been portrayed mostly with "success stories", because many of those who have had bad experiences are too embarrassed to talk about them openly, thinking they are the rarity, or the "unlucky one". What's tricky here is people WANT to believe they are going to find what they are looking for (nothing wrong with that) and DON'T want to believe someone may be lying to them or playing games.
Use Google Images to check whether the photos they are using belong to someone else and check social media sites to ensure they really exist. Often on multiple apps at once, users can swipe through dozens of profiles every minute and plan multiple dates, whether in hopes of a love match or a hook-up.Decisions to meet arise from limited information: A convenient location; a sultry glance captured in pixels; a mutual interest in “banter.” In 2014, Tinder users were spending as long as 90 minutes a day on the site.But fake profiles abound, sexual predators use the sites, and some common online dating behavior—like meeting alone after scant acquaintance, sharing personal information, and using geolocation—puts users at risk.Dating companies are being pushed to better protect users, but some seem reluctant to do more— or even to talk about whether there’s a problem.
You might have photos of the things that are important to you. There ARE sociopaths who will rewrite their own profile to match yours, so that they seem like the perfect partner, and can quickly pick you up, faking to be the perfect partner for you.
