After a little while of chatting and waiting and waiting for responses, My response: Unfortunately, you’re running into the sad situation that is online dating.Too many women have fake profiles that are used for making money, i.e., directing men to paid porn sites or personal Web sites or just asking men outright for money.Users swipe right if they like what they see and swipe left if they don’t.They are then notified of any matches, where both people swiped right on each other's profiles.If a single you’ve contacted can’t answer basic questions, just gives you one or two-word answers, or gets angry that you’ve questioned if they’re legitimate or not, then move on. Since its launch in 2012, the dating app, Tinder, has received quite a bit of publicity.The issue of the fake online dating profile continues to escalate like a hurricane, and drown all the real singles out there in online dating land. The issue remains that the anonymity of online dating has opened the flood gates of liars, thieves, cheats, and the sex industry looking to make a quick buck any way they can.So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?
The researchers then coded participants' responses into categories.Unless the online dating site is going to go to the extra effort of meeting the single in person, doing a background check, and taking their online profile pictures for them (like Findthe It Factor.com, a personalized dating service), then “verified” means nothing more than the faker has access to a credit card.There are services that can do background checks for you, if you feel the person is worth looking into further.Though, recently, I learned that averages 10 percent paid profiles and 90 percent free profiles.The unfortunate truth is that the paid singles don’t know who is free and who is not.Most fake profiles don’t take time to fill in all the sections, or have trouble with correct grammar, or even basic English.Though I’m sure that’ll change if the fakes care enough to read this article—but don’t worry, they don’t.Thus, users can quickly view hundreds of local singles and decide with a quick swipe of their finger if they’re interested or not.In the popular media, Tinder very much has the reputation of being a "hookup" app, designed to facilitate fleeting sexual encounters.It's one of the most popular lifestyle apps with over 10 million daily active users.For the uninitiated, Tinder is a mobile dating app that allows users to locate other singles in their geographic area. They can then start viewing photos of other users who match their age, gender, and location criteria.
