Dating apps are becoming increasingly full of scammers

So I uploaded tinder on my phone yesterday ( it was Saturday I was bored) see if I could find the man of my life there, I matched with a guy the same age as me, we were talking I liked him, was so cute and so good to be true. Today we were talking, every time I was asking him for a real date he was changing the subject. I was like wait? Maybe he found someone else, later he confessed that he was not the guy in the pic and the person I was talking to doesn鈥檛 exist !!!!!!
Omg I miss my stupid ex at least I knew what he was all the time!
I was shocked, I am still, what would anyone do that? This is stupid?
Fake profiles, fake accounts !!!
Be careful guys, only believe it when you see him/her in a bar and you drink a martini 馃嵏 because this shIt happening online is limitless!

The businesses that create these apps have a lot to answer for , countless numbers of members have not only been scammed but murdered as too when will legislation come in to protect registrants.

A uptodate passport, driving license, with a live photo crossmatching , would be a start .

Alongside recent proof of address .Would be really useful.
I'm pretty certain full verification would save many from a string of potential ordeals.
However it seems quick profit rules the day, and personal, just doesnt matter.

If in doubt ask for a video call sooner rather than later .

Anything less is really tempting fate.
It is true madness I must say. Be especially careful for certain things in a profile introduction too. People can make mistakes in their quest for a relationship

Unless you meet someone face to face and interact with them enough to actually like them, there is no chance of a relationship working out. The most important decision of your life must not be left to computer algorithms or sex traffickers. Trust, but only after you verify.

You know why? Because most are chasing illusive partner. Presenting you as you are don鈥檛 get you anywhere.

Scammers are always on the look out for hapless daters looking for their ideal guy or girl and dating apps are their happy hunting grounds.

Only to a bar( but sometimes I meet married guys not wearing their rings and saying they are single) what an ugly world

@mellie I met my wife via an online dating site not long after I got separated from my first wife. It definitely wasn鈥檛 an easy process and require a lot of unsuccessful first dates and a lot of first chats to a thousand or so women before I got close to making any sort of progress.

"Movie star looks, love spelunking, fishing, sushi (rawer the better), into "precious" metal rings, sometimes I'm of two minds (makes me a Gemini?), I run in elite circles (wizards, nobility, heads of states, etc. all want in on my action), and well-travelled."

That's insane. Not sure why people would lie about that tbh. Like texting is as far as they'll get lol
