If you can fit the bill, however, the site gives you awesome features.
The best thing about this site is that it shows you what other users are looking for and the strategies they are applying to get it.
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.
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.
It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.
Singles, both men and women, are under attack from the fakes.Put on your battle gear because dating has become a minefield strewn with fakes ready to blow up in your face …they’ll tell you everything you want to hear, but at a price.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.
