We are now at the age when dating sites are on their milestone of helping people find someone online and yet there are still some people who have had some bad experiences on dating sites. Most of them have been scammed or being ripped off. So here are some guides to avoid this.
You should know how the site works. Look for sites which give a free trial. So you can explore it for a week or two before purchasing any memberships. Some sites occasionally offer a discount so it would be a good advantage. So keep an eye on it. When buying a membership be sure to read carefully the billing page. Sometimes, dating sites offers extra memberships to their other sites. And most people don’t notice it. So if you don’t want to get charged some extra penny then you should be sure to look at the bonus box. You can always find it near the terms and conditions below. Be sure not to include it before hitting the purchase button.
Also, be sure to check the site’s company and google it if they have a good reputation. You can always find it below the site. Just scroll down at the bottom and you can find the “About Us” section or “Contacts”. If you cannot find it, just google the site’s name itself. And always read the “FAQ” section or the terms and conditions first before joining or purchasing any memberships.
When contacted by other members, be aware and vigilant. If someone asked you to go to other sites or any kind of situation where they want you to pay just to watch their cam or before they will meet you. That’s a red flag! Immediately report that profile and block it so they won’t be able to get another victim. Just use free messengers or email to communicate off the site where you met them. Phone numbers is not really necessary.
Then build some connections. Some sites will offer you that you can get laid within some period of time. Don’t believe it. Meeting someone online is not an easy process and it takes quite some time. It needs a lot of effort and patience from your part or the other party and a good communication between you and other members. You must build a relationship first. Doesn’t mean you have to commit. Friendship would be a good start. It builds trust and credibility so you can be open with each other well.
Joining dating sites don’t mean you can meet someone right away in person the day you have joined. It takes several weeks or even months. You just have to be real and genuine. Be polite and friendly and be open to all members. Don’t be rude and snobbish. And you should show some respect to others and don’t be desperate. Just take it easy and be aware of those members who will try to take advantage of you. You know who they are.
But if it’s almost or over a year and you still haven’t met anyone then I think you should find another dating site. There might be a good one for you. You can start here!
