Finding Love Online

There is nothing wrong with dating online. Some of us do it because there are no other options.  I attend  a church where there is no single’s ministry and most of the people in my age bracket, all are married.  I have also heard stories of people who met online then they marry so if you sign up at dating websites, do so, but proceed with caution. There are people out there who prey on both men and women. They want your money. They create a fake profile, use photos that do not belong to them. Once you make contact with someone online, check them out! Here are a few signs to be aware of:

1) Check their writing skills.  Even on their profile, you can actually see if they are intelligent or not. They do not use  uppercase “I”s or they will leave it out and you will see “am this or am that”  a lot.  Scam artists do not know how to spell and constantly will use the lower case “i“s

2. Once you get their email address  or full name check them out at Spokeo.com. If you use any social networks, do a search. I met  a man  who says his name is Marcello Peterson Nesta, but his email was completely different so I searched him by his email name and found out he is actually from Ghana and that Nesta is not his last name (It belongs to a  soccer player he likes).

You can also check other websites like RomanceScams.com, scamomatic.com, but the main thing is research before you give your heart away.

These people prey on  on your weaknesses. They make promises they don’t intend to keep. They say all the right things like : “I love you” Be weary of that. All relationships should begin as friendship and  they say that after  a couple  chat sessions or emails.

They will ask you if they could leave the website and  communicate through email or chat. They will also ask you to leave the dating website too. (They have found their victim)
