Today, online dating is a free and efficient way of meeting singles.  There are many dating sites on the Internet that advertise free dating services, when in reality, they are not.When reading the About Us section, don’t let the slogans like ‘Paying for quality, online dating will result in quality experiences.” sway you into joining as this is so untrue!

When clicking on to a free online dating site and your screen becomes flooded with flashing ads, leave the site quickly as this usually mean the site is full of viruses and bugs that will harm the computer. Also, if when joining a free on line dating site, it asks you to click on to an advertisement before going on to the next step,  don’t. No honest company should be having their customers make them richer by having you click on ads.

If, when you join a free on line dating site you are asked for your email address, make sure when you have finished, you can delete your email address, if you cannot, this is a bad sign. Dating sites that ask for your email address and will not let you delete it often send fake messages stating that someone is interested in you.  Sometimes, the dating sites sell your email on to other sites that will send you useless emails with even more useless information, not to mention endless Viagra ads! These are just some of the things to look for, but there are good, honest sites out there, one just has to be vigilant before diving in head first.

Internet dating, sadly, has become a new playground for scams, allowing people to be who ever they think you want them to be.  This does not mean to bring forth a message that it is impossible to find love through Internet dating, but to inform you of the dangers that are there.  Internet dating is still a relatively new way of connecting with people from all over the world and the dangers need to be understood.

We do not hear of many who have had bad experiences, as they are usually too embarrassed to talk about them, seeing themselves as the unlucky ones or a rarity. We only hear of good and successful results portraying these sites with success stories. Movies and TV also focus on the lighter side of Internet dating as opposed to the darker side.

The problem is, people want to believe they will find what they are looking for and do not want to believe someone may be lying through their teeth or just playing games. They like to think that they are too intelligent to fall for any scams, leaving themselves wide open to liars and cheats. There are many hidden dangers in the worlds of Internet dating and it is up to you to recognize the signs in order to make your Internet dating a success.

Internet dating, chat rooms, all these make it so easy for someone to cheat on their spouse or partners, often using the Internet dating area for promiscuity.  Long distance Internet romance is relatively easy for some one who is in a relationship to cheat in a safe environment. People must realize that Internet dating can be extremely dangerous to those who don’t take it seriously and for those who are too trusting. Although Internet dating has proved to be successful for some, statistics show it is not always so for others. There have been numerous horror stories going around of bad experiences on the Internet dating scene ranging from the humorous to the deadly.

If you really want to try your hand at Internet dating, remember to take it seriously and play it safe.  There are numerous dating agencies out there that offer options, make sure you pick one that is right for you. Internet dating websites costs vary, so shop around for the best deal. You can also post or answer a personal ad to meet your Internet date. There are many free sites with a simple registration.

Dating websites often have numerous testimonies of how they met their soul mates or spouse, but what they don’t post is the number of failures or people who have had bad experiences.

The major online dating sites have millions of members, with thousands more signing up each and every day. Dating via the Internet allows you to find a potential partner in the comfort of your own home, viewing their profiles looking at their photos, and listening to audio clips. You can widen your search so you are no longer confined to your local area. Online dating has changed the way we look for partners, so don’t get left behind, but be vigilant for the red flags.
