Online Dating Tips: How to Fact-Check A Profile

Online dating has become an integral part of modern society, and as a result, we have grown quite skilled at screening out the bad eggs from the good potential set. We know the key to finding a compatible partner is to meet them in person, but how do you evaluate a potential partner without spending hours on the phone or in-person? Online dating is a stressful experience for most people, but it doesn’t have to be. Today we are going to talk about how to check if the person who you are talking with is real or fake. There are many things you can do to find out if the profile of the person you are talking to is real such as follows:

• Conduct a thorough research before the first date or meet up

It’s an age-old question: how do you plan a first date without knowing too much about someone before it happens? It’s difficult to research someone online. After all, how do you know if they are who they say they are? How do you know if they are looking for a relationship or just sex? How do you know their intentions? Before you meet with your date, you could do your own fact-checking first. This is the best way to make sure you’ll have a fun and safe experience and not end up in a bad situation.

• Check the profile carefully

We all use online dating websites. We join them to meet someone, but most of us never have to say more than one line to convince someone to meet. The perfect online dating profile is just that — perfect. The name, the photo, the interests, the hobbies, the lifestyle, the age, the location, the type of relationship. It all sounds perfect, and you wouldn’t even know that there was more to their profile than what is shown.

• Go to Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media

Online dating has changed how we meet people. The days of driving around in your Geo Metro trying to pick up numbers at lunch are over. Now you can meet people on various social networking sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Google. As much as we like to think that social networking sites are the way to go, they can actually be a liability when trying to find a potential partner.
