Trust Your Intuition
Are you currently using an online dating site to spice up your love life? Over 41,250,000 people have tried to find the love of their life through online dating. When it comes to online dating, it is important to trust your intuition. Most of the time if you feel there is something wrong…you’re usually right. Find out the truth about the individual you’ve been talking to and conduct a Public Records Search.
Here are a few questions you should ask yourself about the person you are dating:
1. Is their profile photo grainy, out-of-focus, or outdated?
This is the first and easiest way to catch a “catfish.” Sometimes in order to lure you in, a person will post exceptionally good-looking or unrealistic photos. These may, in fact, be outdated or even stolen photos from the Internet (Warning).
2. Is the person pushy about money?
Has he or she ever asked to borrow money? Most of the time these individuals will make up an elaborate, heartfelt story so that you wire them money. Did they mention a sick child, hospital expense? Do not fall for this trick. This type of person will lie through their teeth in order to get their hands on your money.
3. Are they contacting you at strange hours?
Can they only talk to you at night? Or just on their time? If you find yourself waiting by the phone or constantly being stood up, there is usually a shady explanation behind it. Be careful. This person may be married or hiding crucial information you should be aware of.
4. Did they bail at the last minute?
If this is a reoccurring thing, it’s usually strategy. They want to keep you engaged in the relationship so that you keep communicating with them. In other words, they get your hopes up. This “catfish” has no intention of “really” meeting you but might want access to other assets, such as your personal information.
The “Tipping point”
The “tipping point” refers to the 17 to 23 days after the two people began interacting. “This occurs when too much online communication before a first date causes a person to idolize someone prior to actually meeting them face-to-face,” states Shayla Price.
