Millionaires Are Not Sending You Anonymous Love Notes And Other Online Dating Tricks

Ladies and gentlemen, if my inbox is to be believed, I am very hotly sought after by honest to goodness millionaires. No, I do not believe these emails and neither should you. Millionaires, eligible men and women of all faiths, ethnicities and other breakdowns are not randomly messaging strangers from dating sites that they did not even know they joined. That's right. You are not signed up for these sites but yet, you are getting messages, you hot ticket, you. It is time for a little cold water on that steamy dream you are having.

Online dating sights use a variety of ways to lure you in, some of them a little more direct and some of them very sneaky. Some sites, but not all, have always resorted to some very nefarious tricks indeed.Tricks or legitimate marketing aside, none of these strangers, rich and famous, old and young, depraved and desperate are sending a single thing to you. They are not winking at you. They are not sending you gifts that you have to check out right now. They are not messaging you, they are not waiting for you, they are not going to die lonely, sad, solitary lives without your membership right now. They do not know you. They have not checked out your membership profile because, and stick with me, genius, you do not have one. This is a marketing ploy. They want you to be curious about this potentially great person who is "messaging" you. They win when you log in and create a profile.

At this point, it is still nothing more than marketing and there is nothing inherently wrong with that. They know (because of your searches or because of other info) that you are on at least one dating site so you get these emails. They are not promising you anything at this point. They are only telling you that this person wants to talk to you. The message is not entirely true, but it is still not entirely false either. They are still within the boundaries.

If you are not aware of it, a few years ago some of the biggest names were called onto the carpet because of a really horrible practice. Just before a paid membership expires, the perfect gal or guy messages and starts a conversation. You want to keep talking to his person because you have not set a date yet so you renew your membership. Another message or two and you end up with the kiss off. That is the really sneaky, nasty trick they employ. The bottom line is simple: you are not catching millionaires with a profile that does not exist and you are not getting the perfect person just as you ending your membership. Online dating is not the worst thing in the world as long as you realize that it is not perfect either. Proceed with caution.

I didn't know about these "tricks of the trade." However, I know that when I see a dating site in my email that it can't be created specifically for me since I've been married for 17 years and I have never visited a dating site in my life. Still, I find it very interesting that I get tons of them daily. They sound pretty sneaky.
