If you are a single guy and looking for love, you definitely have more options in today’s world. Modern technology has evolved to the point where it is easy to get your stats out there and see what happens. It is something that we take for granted. Compare that to the methods our forefathers used to meet women, and I think you will agree that we have it pretty good.
However, if you are using an online dating site, there are a few things that you should know. First of all, not all dating sites are created equal. Yes, you can find some fairly good free sites out there, but you have to look past that.
Many of these sites are free for a reason. And that is because they are just starting out and they are struggling to get members. It is a catch-22 situation because no one wants to sign up to a site with very few members and the webmaster can’t get a lot of members because no one is signing up.
That means that the site owner is going to have to find creative ways to populate the database in order to gain some momentum. In some cases, they may resort to less than honest methods. While it is a little dishonest to put all your family members (married or otherwise) on your site to get the ball rolling, it is a major deception to include fake profiles. Yet, it happens a lot.
So, the next time you join an unknown dating site, be aware that you could be corresponding with the owner’s married sister, or worse, someone pretending to be someone they are not.
While there are many quality sites out there that are just starting out, it makes one wonder if you shouldn’t spend the few dollars to get on one of the major dating sites.
The bottom line is that if you choose a free site, be aware of some of the potential drawbacks.
