The online dating profile is the place to sell yourself, so if he has nothing impressive to say there, better bring your uppers to the first date!
Dater, beware: steer clear of these tell-tale online dating profile warning signs.1. If he describes himself with the phrase "I’m just your average guy…," take his word on it. If he can't keep his past relationship grievances to himself (and/or his therapist) while trying to paint himself as datable, you can expect your honeymoon period to last halfway through the main course, if that.
Don't let his smooth talk — and your desperation — cloud your judgment.
Some people have great success with Internet dating; yet, there are hazards that must be known so that Internet dating doesn't cost you emotionally, mentally and monetarily.
But in reality, they likely live in that country and are using you as part of a dating extortion scam.
In addition to sending money directly, the scammer might ask you to cash checks for them or forward them a package. “In addition to losing your money to someone who had no intention of ever visiting you,” the FBI cautions, “you may also have unknowingly taken part in a money laundering scheme by cashing phony checks and sending the money overseas and by shipping stolen merchandise.”In one dating extortion scam recently reported to the FBI, the scammer took intimate conversations and posted them on a website, along with pictures and phone numbers, claiming that the person was a cheater.
