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.
Here’s everything else you need to know about Tinder and how to maximise it.Research shows that there are 50 million active users on Tinder who check their accounts 11 times per day and spend an average of 90 minutes per day on the app.Do report a fake profile to your online dating service, it’s at least a step in the right direction—you’ll be helping out by not letting the next guy or girl be faked out.If a lot of their profile says, “ask me,” or says very little at all, it’s probably a fake.Greg Blatt, the CEO of Tinder’s parent company and one of the best online dating sites, Match, has announced exciting new features that he promises to ‘blur the lines between the physical and digital worlds for dating.’ After the success of Tinder Gold – which lets you pay to see who swiped right on you – the new features expected to hit Tinder in early 2018 include AI and geolocation functions allowing users to fully immerse themselves into the activities of the people they’ve already been matched with.
He said, ‘Until now, Tinder has basically been a swiping machine – it’s effective and simple but ultimately limited.’ The introduction of Tinder’s AI-assisted dating function is being kept firmly under wraps but it has got everyone talking.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.They need to make as many contacts as possible—remember it’s a numbers game. You are doing the best you can by being smart and wary of potential fakers. Will enough singles get fed up with the not-so-great state of online dating and demand better from the industry? As a contributor to online dating industry forums, I continue to bring up the issues associated with fake profiles: liars, thieves and cheats, and the accountability of the industry for a solution. Even if you put on your profile in bold letters, “No Fakers or Sex Industry Professionals,” it won’t help. My suggestion for your first contact, if you’re worried they’re not telling the truth, is to ask them outright. The standard industry reply is that “it’s not cost effective” and that “singles won’t pay for it.” Well, singles are “paying for it” in time, frustration, dissatisfaction and with their wallets. It’s not as simple as some online dating services claim it is.
