Many dating sites use fake female profiles to lure unsuspecting males. The Ashley Madison hack recently showed light on the tactics used on dating sites. The men usually heavily outnumber the actual real women on these sites.

All the female friends I know always complained about getting spammed by guys on dating sites. When I ventured into dating sites years ago, I had to fight through the fake profiles to find someone and then compete with 100's of other males to get a particular females attention.


Yeah I think there was an actual lawsuit filed against a site that did that, some dude payed the site to message the girls and they all ended up being bots so he sued the company because of it.

Title. BUT on all 2 that I use 90% of the "users" are actual bots that are easily deduced but I find it so annoying that there are so many but these sites don't really do anything to stop them. I'm pretty sure I see more bots than actual human beings.

Does this happen to you, if this applies to you?


I don't use dating sites and just assume they're all scams. You either have bots or pictures of hot models and you just know those people really don't look anything like their pictures. If I was wanting to date then I would just start talking to people in rl until I ran into someone that actually enjoyed talking to me and that I enjoyed talking to and then go from there. Just seems a lot easier to me. I just don't trust dating sites. The internet is a wonderful tool though and I won't go so far as to say they're all bad sites but most are filled with bots, scammers and scumbags lol. It is nice though that people, especially shy people can use the internet to meet people and have their voices heard. There's a reason you see a lot of stories online about people meeting and falling in love online. Like anything else in life it has it's good points and it's bad points. Regardless, if you do use them then I hope you have good luck. Everyone deserves to find their soul mate no matter where they find them at. Good luck all.
