10 Best Ways To Check Online Dating Profiles: Genuine Or Not?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Online dating services offer access to a variety of people that we otherwise would have struggled to meet. Not everyone checks dating profile tips when they are uploading a personal listing. This means, some guys and girls will have good profiles that you like while other ads will leave you indifferent.

One of the major things that everyone is concerned about when dating online: How do you find out whether a profile is genuine or not? Is this gorgeous woman or sophisticated man really seeking a partner or just playing the field? How to figure out that people are who they say they are?

Here are top 10 tips for dating profile screening

1> Review their profile photos. People who are serious usually include several pictures that show them in different environments. If there is only one photo or pictures seem blurry, that's a sign of an individual trying to be evasive. It's easy for anyone to take plenty of pictures on their mobile, ask a friend or a passerby. Photos that are too glamorous may be a concern as well. Crooks love using images of foreign celebrities downloaded online. Over processed or grainy illustrations are the sign that the person didn't just upload a file as it was. Authentic profiles have a few photos that appear recent (by the clothing style, for instance) but are rather on the casual side. You could also search for copies of photos online if in doubt. Sites like Tineye offer reverse image search. See if it pops up under someone else's name.

2> Assess the age range of partners they are looking for. People who try to use others for financial gains often specify unrealistic age limits. A young woman may be looking for men that are much older. A middle-aged man could seek women older than himself. Such listings should immediately raise suspicion. One tip to remember about fake online dating profiles, they try to emphasize that "age doesn't matter". This is because scam artists truly don't care whom to profit from and how old their victims are.

3> Emphasizing honesty and sincerity. Cheats tend to talk a lot about honesty. Players try to create an impression they are seeking one true love. Both types talk about moral values and emphasize their devotion to ethics. If someone mentions honesty and sincerity, it doesn't necessarily mean that they are swindlers, but together with other signs it is a prominent red flag.

4> The profile contains nothing that could put prospective partners off. The text is carefully crafted to be acceptable to anyone. It's rather generalized. There are no requirements that cut off any particular group. The content includes only what you want to hear.

5> Spelling and grammar are inconsistent with the bio. Phony listings may feature poor grammar and spelling, peculiar choice of words. This is because bogus ads are usually created by foreign scam artists. Vice versa, some false listings could have a text without any errors. Run the text of the profile through a free plagiarism checker like Quetext or Grammarly for copies. If you find other ads with the same phrases, it's a worry.

6> The person is located overseas. Even though you seek to date locally, somehow you receive a contact from an overseas admirer. The profile usually features a location within your country but in a different city. When you start communicating, they say they are temporarily overseas. This is the most concerning red flag that tips you about their dating profile being questionable. (If you are initially contacting someone who lives abroad, for example, on an international online dating site like Elena's Models, then obviously an overseas location is acceptable.)

7> Phonies don't have underage kids. Fraudsters know that presence of kids is a turn off for potential matches. This is why bogus profiles rarely mention underage children. The sham persona either doesn't have kids or they are grown up.

8> Be cautious of male widowers and never married females. The favorite marital status for phony middle-aged gentlemen targeting lonely ladies is "widowed". Female profiles used as baits are usually of never married young ladies in their twenties (sometimes early thirties).

9> Professing love quickly. Normally cheats will be the ones to contact you. Once you start communicating, the pretenders will be quick to profess their fondness for you and then openly admit being in love — even though you have never met in person. They are the ones who are strongly propelling your online connection forward and leading you to the next step. You may be surprised by their overpowering attention but after a while they convince you that you are extremely special for them. You have to do very little, just enjoy their admiration and unreserved affection.

10> Phonies brag about their prosperity but ask for money. If the sham listing belongs to a male, he is a top level professional or retired businessman, government employee, or military officer. In any case, he is well off, established in life, and tells potential victims about it outright. He may even have a mock website, either at a free hosting service or under a recently registered domain name. If the bait is listed as a female, she will be gorgeous and innocent, but also from a high-quality family that is not poor. A frequent scenario for females includes a sudden inheritance or finding a treasure (an old valuable coin, a gemstone, etc). After convincing victims in their good financial standing, fraudsters ask for wire money transfers claiming some emergency situation. This is the final tell-tale sign: There is no other reason to have a fake profile than to profit from it. A money request, for any purpose, is your final stop signal. (It's always about money, either for emergency or payment for a visa, insurance, communication, or translation services. Sometimes people don't notice how they spend thousands shelling out mere $5 per message on paid chat dating sites.)

If 3 or more dating profile tips listed here relate to your situation, slow down. Spend some time thinking how your relationship started and who is moving it forward. Do all the checks and searches for images, texts of profiles and mails. Verify names and facts given to you. Always remember: Genuine people have families, friends, and business associates, whom they would ask for help in an emergency. There is never a reason to request money from strangers. The only people who do it are online criminals seeking to profit from lonely people.

If you know someone who would benefit from these tips on checking a legitimate dating profile, forward them a link. Especially if someone you know is dating an overseas person they met online.
