So you have met your ideal partner, companion or friend online. They may be based in Sydney, Melbourne or anywhere in Australia or overseas and things up to now seem to have been going very well. But doubts have begun to rise in your mind. Issues such as prolonged silences on their side, misspelling your name in emails, messages sent at odd hours, a reluctance to meet in person, last minute cancellations of meetings or sudden requests for money start to occur.
What are you to do? Is there an online dating check you can do to be certain that these aren’t just unconnected coincidences? Online dating sites have become one of the most successful ways in which people use the Internet, with the ease and scope only making the service more popular. However as they continue to grow, so does the need for online dating verification.
Online dating sites vary from free sites allowing users to post personal messages through to sophisticated sites which match up different users profiles using algorithms. These online dating sites can have tens or hundreds of thousands of members; they bring people together from across the globe and offer members the opportunity to meet like minded people efficiently and cheaply. They have become so common that many of us know someone who met their partner on such a site and are perfectly happy.
However, there is also a darker side to the online dating industry which we seek to suppress through online dating verification. There are individuals who seek to strike relationships with singles without revealing their true circumstances, whether they are currently married, have children or other dependents, or have a string of other partners or failed relationships.
Others may be tricksters seeking a way to part you from your money by spinning sob stories or else claiming that they are a victim of a crime and need to pay for hospital treatment, fines or a travel visa.
These people are cunning and ruthless, trawling sites looking for suitable targets. Sometimes they are part of an organized syndicate, designed to trick vulnerable people into parting with their money. They may pretend to be successful businessmen or women who wishes to meet you, and ask you to send money to make it possible as they claim their money is tied up in investments.
Unfortunately, none of us are completely immune from this online behavior. There are many highly intelligent people who have fallen for such schemes led by Romeos, tricksters and scammers. The internet is awash with such individuals.
Before you move your relationship along, it is prudent to undertake some form of online dating check to make sure the person you are contacting really is who they say they are. Why should you risk wasting your time and resources on someone you barely know? Online dating verification will give you confidence that the person is genuine or else save you from heartache, loss of money or worse.
