Online dating is very popular nowadays. There have been a lot of people who had met their husbands or wives through this online social facility. But as it is with good people, there are a lot of bad people lurking inside online dating communities and waiting for their chance to pounce upon their prey.
And there are also a lot of instances wherein a people inside online dating community don’t give out the right information about them. There are a lot of people in there that presents themselves as another person entirely different from their own personality. And these are the people you should be careful of. It’s not that they are bad people. But being not so truthful about them would indicate that they wouldn’t be truthful about anything else either.
Here are the things you should do to find out if the person you are talking to is speaking to you in all honesty:
1. Know more about the person.
Learn about his physical appearance. Ask him to describe himself to you. Then check his profile if it matches his uploaded photo perfectly. This way, you can be sure that the person you are talking to is the same person as the image he had uploaded. And constantly bring up his other features while the conversation progresses. Ask him about his black hair. If he had mistakenly told you that his hair is brown and not black, then that should be a warning sign that he’s fooling around with you.
2. Check the person’s background.
Always ask the person’s name, age, and hometown before you start chatting with him. Most of the time, these are all indicated in his profile. Ask him again to be sure. Then try to search for his background over the free people search sites around the internet. If they match then you are on the right track, to say the least.
3. Check his friends.
Online dating is a social networking site. Sometimes, people can see each other’s friends from there. If you personally know somebody included in his roster of friends, then you have a good place to start your own little investigation. Ask that person about this friend you met over an online dating site. He or she will be able to give you a lot of information about your new friend, both good and bad.
