Reasons Why You Should Avoid Free Online Dating

Feb 28, 2008
Since the arrival of online dating services many things have changed in the industry. In the first few years of it's existence the dating services which were available to us were all paid dating services. However, withing the past few years we have all witnessed the debut of free online dating services.

Many of these free dating services claim to provide the same service/features as the paid dating services. However, this can be argued, in this article you will learn about some of the flaws in free online dating, and why it should be avoided.

Everyday more and more people are using free dating services to send spam. People will usually send spam to advertise a particular product or service. There are quite a number of reasons why people choose free dating services to send spam.

Many of the free services do not have a strict policy when it comes to spam. The free services which have a strict policy against spam, have a difficult time in stopping spammers on their site. As with all free online dating services, anyone can join, joining is free, and contacting other members is free, so this makes it extremely difficult to stop spam on these sites.

Free dating services are also popular for harvesting scammers on their sites. Online dating scams has become extremely popular within the past few years. Many people will join a free online dating service with the intent of scamming other members. These individuals will join the dating service, create a fake profile and upload a picture to their profile. The picture is usually a fake picture which is usually of an extremely attractive person.

Scammers will usually contact as many members as possible in an effort to establish some type of online relationship. At some point the scammer will tell you a sad story then they will ask you to send them some money. You should be weary of this, as these people do not have your best interest at heart, and they will try to get as much money from you as possible.

With most of these dating services safety isn't the top priority. One of the major setbacks of the free online dating industry is that these services will allow anyone and everyone to join their site. This is the main concept which distinguishes free services from the paid online dating services. Many of the paid online dating services will do a background check on their members before allowing them to have access to their site.

This process will usually discourage the scammers and the spammers of the online dating industry. Thus making your experience on the dating service a memorable one, which will increases your chances of finding love online.
