|Online Dating started with a 'usenet' kind of newsgroups to
social networking and has become one of the most important part
of our personal lives in less than 10 years time. With the
growing demand in online dating, thousands of online dating
sites were formed. Some sites unbelievably reached millions of
members in short periods. With the easiness and forwardness of
online dating, millions of singles became couples and got
married. But as in all part of our lives, 'cyber-thieves' or
nowadays we call them 'scammers' created millions of fake
profiles on online dating sites and suckered money from innocent
people, who were looking for love on the internet.
So the question is how you can know if the dating site of your
choice is reputable and how can you know the person you are
getting in touch is a genuine match?:
On the huge ocean of Internet, there are hundreds of free dating
sites with maybe a dozen of them reputable enough to give them a
try. But the biggest problem with trying totally free dating sites is that
it just doesn't attracts innocent individuals like you. It
attracts scammers who are creating hundreds of fake profiles
everyday, looking forward to wrong moves from genuine people. So
most of the time, giving hundreds of free dating sites a try is
waste of time which may discourage you to find someone genuine
online. So if you really intend to find someone to build a
relationship, it's better you find a reputable and cheap dating
site where you can meet real people.
After you decided to go with a dating site of your choice, you
must keep in mind some of these simple rules for avoiding ghost

effects your chances.

but reputable growing sites with hundreds of profiles You will

profiles will not be overwhelmed with thousands of messages

your dream mate, always look into the photos that may be fake,
eliminate your options to a smaller pool.

their personal ads.

especially from overseas with so much interest in you be careful
with them. Look into their messages and if any part of their
messages, they talk about financial problems or even if they
tell you their salary honestly, run away from them as you are
90% approached by a scammer.
- Even if you exchange tens of messages with someone, never send
money for plane tickets, visas, etc. as this is 99.9% scamming
technique, cyber-thieves using everyday.

the phone with your match.
