Let’s be honest, it doesn’t matter which dating site you’re on, there are going to be fake profiles.
Trust me, I’ve been on my fair share of dating sites and through my experience I can now spot a fake profile a mile away. Just to give you a little example of my own personal experience, I was recently on Match.com and I got a message from this dude who messaged me saying “Hey gorgeous, love your profile.” Of course I immediately checked his profile and he was talking about how he was looking for his lifetime match, wanted to get married, yada yada! So I wrote him back just to see what was up, even though I was skeptical, and guess what? NO RESPONSE, ever! Obviously fake!
Anyway, whether the fake profile is a 500 lb chick looking for love posing as a blonde bombshell, a scam artist, a prankster or a bot from the dating site itself, it’s almost inevitable that you’re not going to come across at least one fake profile during your online dating journey.
And since I have plenty of experience spotting these fakes, I’m going to let you in on my secret!
If you receive a message, a wink, a favorite, or an email from a GORGEOUS gal, you should automatically go into defense mode. Not saying that this isn’t entirely possible, I’m just saying that you should do a little research before getting your hopes up.
Indicators it’s probably a fake profile:
The photo – if it’s a photo of a model, if it’s professionally shot and looks like something from a magazine, then chances are it’s a fake profile. Does the girl in the picture like “kind of familiar”? THAT’S BECAUSE THAT IS A PICTURE OF RIHANNA! If the picture is of a celebrity, that’s a definite indicator of a fake profile. No celebrity is on an online dating site.
The requirements – “Hot babe seeking man 20-55″ DOUBT IT! No real chick is looking for a man between the ages of 20-55! “Hot babe who loves to f*ck looking for a man with a high sex drive” I DON’T THINK SO! Chances are no woman is ever going to write this in her profile, even if you are on an adult dating site. Hmm… except maybe if you’re on Easy Sex where the ladies are legitimately super horny and not too discriminating (EasySex.com is actually pretty legit – check out the review).
The language – if her profile looks completely generic like she just copy and pasted it off of an “example of the perfect profile” blog post on the site, then it’s probably fake. If it looks typical and lacks imagination this is a definite red flag.
The country – If she’s from Russia, China, or Nigeria, she’s probably fake. Even if she is real, don’t want your time, or your money for that matter.
No response – If a hot chick sends you a message, you respond, and then you never hear back from her again. SHE’S FAKE.
