Online Dating - How to Avoid Disasters

It is not uncommon to have gone through the experience of a couple of bad dates in a lifetime. Regardless of how it happened, you may find yourself matched with a real creep - kind that fumbles and fidgets throughout the evening and then announces that he has forgotten to bring his wallet or credit card. The result is that you have ruined an evening and paid for the entertainment and food, and felt foolish at the end of it. Beware of meeting the same kind online. This is how it happens.

Presenting False Profiles: The guy reads your profile on the dating services and comes up with a matching profile to entice you. The person may be far from what he claims to be because he is out to take advantage of your good nature.

In your innocence you fall into his trap not knowing that his dating profile has been tailor made to fit into your requirements. He pretends that he is just the guy for you and makes you believe that you will get on really well. This leads to online chatting and then talking on the phone. So far so good.
