Real Vs Fake Online Dating Websites – How Do You Choose?
Ten years ago it was extremely more difficult to get quality results from using online dating. This was mostly because online dating still had an unfair stigma attached to it and not everyone was doing it. People were ashamed and embarrassed of having to resort to using the internet to meet someone new. Because of this, the dating landscape online was limited.
Thankfully that stigma is long gone and now EVERYONE is doing it. Dating on the internet is now a billion dollar business and it is the top choice to meet your next potential spouse. In minutes you can sign up for a new site and be chatting or messaging with your next potential date. It’s that’s simple!
And while this internet dating explosion is great for potential options, it also makes it confusing deciding which site you should use. Because of the money involved, there are now many unscrupulous websites out there who simply want your money and don’t care about your dating success. Here’s a dirty little industry secret as to what many of these sketchy sites are doing to pretend they have a large user base: They are BUYING FAKE PROFILES. Yes, the site may look like it has thousands of users but the majority of these users are not real people! Or they were real people but are are profiles that are not in use anymore. You can even see for yourself by doing a Google search. You’ll find many online sites willing to sell these fake profiles. It’s a sad truth, but it’s the truth.
Having said that, there there are a lot of quality websites out there to recommend escort listings. But which ones you choose should come down to what you are looking for. Not every website is right for everyone.
Answer a few simple questions before you make your choice of which dating site to try.
Are you looking for a potential husband or wife and a serious relationship or are you simply “playing the field” and trying to have a good time?
Do you care which religion and/or race your potential date is?
How much money (if any) would you like to invest in your search and for how long?
Some of the best websites might be for everyone (match.com), free (okcupid), for certain religions (JDate) or for those looking for a long term relationship (eHarmony.) You should decide first what you are looking for before you think about which site you want to try out.
Once you decide on your goals, you need to do the research on each site you are considering. And don’t limit your research to the internet. Talk to your friends and family who have dated online and ask them their opinions. Make sure to talk to someone who had had success!
