6 Facts to Know about Dating Websites
Dating websites are indeed a wonderful way to get to know new people and find prospective life partners, if not, at least some prospective boyfriends, with whom you can spend some happy time. But did you know that online dating sites can often be misleading? Also, are you aware that you can blindly fall in love with someone online and then be cheated or fooled so miserably, that you could end up depressed, even suicidal? Wait! Don’t give up on it yet! All you need to do is get yours facts straight. Once you know the rules of the game, you will be on your guard, and will become least likely to get affected by the several uncertainties and possibilities of getting duped when you have high hopes. Listed here are the 6 things to know about dating websites.
1. They have plenty of misleading pictures
Don’t believe everything you see. Also, pictures can be misleading. The first things your screen will be bombarded with are pictures of the hottest, cutest and sweetest guys who are in your vicinity waiting to meet you. Do not fall for this con! Remember that most of these profiles could be bogus. Also, even if the profiles are genuine, these pictures may not be real ones. Once you start chatting with these guys, slowly but surely the real picture will begin to unfold and you are most likely to get disappointed – time and again!
2. They mostly delude and promote themselves
How did you come to know of the particular dating website that seems so alluring? Either someone recommended it, or you read about it somewhere, or you clicked on an advertisement. If the latter is the case, then you may just have been misled! Most dating websites have unrealistic advertisements that annoyingly pop up while you are browsing some other window just so as to attract your attention and make you visit their page at least once. Their delusional promotional tactics are fine, but they also use some high profile model’s picture in the advertisement instead of someone who may be actually searching for a date on their website.
3. You can never really know a person online
While dating websites are great at bringing together people far apart up close together, you also can never know everything about a person online. Truly knowing a person requires face to face meeting, spending time together and talking to them. Chatting online does not give you any knowledge about anybody, because that other person might just be exactly opposite of the image you will make of him by what he types in the tiny chat window.
