Ladies, I understand that you are lonely and would like companionship, but you need to educate yourselves, and take precautions! As exciting as the attention may be, you are NOT in a race to meet someone. A lot of people post photos of themselves anywhere from 5-20 years ago! If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them. Before meeting them for the first time, leave their name, phone number, and meeting place with a friend. When meeting someone for the first time, and possibly the 2nd and 3rd date too, it will minimize potential danger if you are surrounded by people. You may be trapped and not free to leave if becoming uncomfortable.
Compromising your safety and/or life does not need to be the price to pay for a date. If any serious problem arises, they (and you) can be tracked down easier and faster. Being in their car gives them all of the control of where you are going and when you are returning home. When you start dating someone seriously, remove your profile from the site and ask them to do so as well.
They have already given you so much false information about them, there is virtually no way to find them.
It is the perfect venue for these men to find women to scam.
In the beginning, a man will have an extreme interest in getting to know you, making you their top priority, and making you feel more special than ever.
They reel you in with promises of the great life they are going to provide you, and tell you everything you want to hear, including how much they love you, rather quickly.
These statistics are showing that since 10% of members are scammers and another 10% are some type of sex offender, your odds of ending up in a bad situation are already 20%.
Then add the 51% that are already spoken for, and your odds of meeting a normal, available person decrease greatly.
Did you know that there are 54 million single people in the United States, and 40 million of them have tried online dating?
