Online Dating Scams are More than Requests for Money

Online Dating Scams are More than Requests for Money

Online dating scams are something that are happening all the time. I would say that most weeks I receive emails from someone who is dealing with a scam, sadly it’s often after they’ve already sent money to the scammer.

In the past when I wrote on identifying online dating scammers, I often concentrated on the fact that scammers would ask for money. My advice, which I still believe, is that if someone asks you for money through an online dating ...

Also, be sure to check ...

Australia: eHarmony Free Weekend Sept. 5 to 9, 2014

Posted by:

eHarmony is having another free communication weekend for folks in Australia from today, Sept. 5th, through Tuesday the 9th. Our last post on this mentioned the fact that eHarmony seems to have free weekends rather frequently, and that is holding true here, with this coming just a month after the last free weekend for Australia. I’m not sure if they tend to have them more frequently in certain geographical areas, but I wouldn’t be surprised if ...

Australia: eHarmony Free Weekend August 1 to 5, 2014

Posted by:

eHarmony is having a free communication weekend for those living in Australia beginning this Friday, August 1st, and running until the end of the day on Tuesday, August 5th. While I’ve talked quite a bit about eHarmony’s free weekends in the US and Canada, this is the first time I’m hearing about a free event in Australia (although I strongly suspect there have been many before this).

If the free weekends work for ...

My Second Online Date – The “Too Good to Be True” Date

My Second Online Date – The “Too Good to Be True” Date

I recently spilled my guts about my online dating hesitations and the first relationship I was in that came via an online match-up. To date, I have only met three men in person after meeting on the internet. Yes, I am that stubborn about meeting people online, plus I have had equal, if not better, success in the tried and true, old fashioned finding-dates-through-friends-and-hobbies approach.

Anyway, two of my online dating first dates became relationships, and the third was ...

My First Relationship from Online Dating

My First Relationship from Online Dating

While online dating is becoming much more common, I can’t help but sense the stigma still attached to it. This is why, as a mid-twenties, motivated and very social woman, I felt absolutely ridiculous making my first profile on a free online dating site. I have lived in a college town for the last 7 years… great to meet people, but it becomes very small, very fast! So when the “people” I met were all exes or dates of friends ...

She Stopped Replying! Now what? A Woman’s Perspective

Several dozen reasons exist why somebody who did respond to your initial message would suddenly stop chatting with you, and there are equally as many ways you can handle it.

Brad, “the dating advice guy” who has created this site, has a full section on this in his free Online Dating Guide, so I won’t bore you with repetition. I will, however, tell you from a first-hand standpoint about a few very specific situations that I have dealt with, ...

Catfishing – The New Online Game You Don’t Want to Play

Posted by:

Just because MTV now has a full series dedicated to “Catfish” doesn’t mean it’s just a young kid’s game. What is catfishing, you ask? We are not talking about a “plenty of fish in the sea” type reference. Catfishing is the slang term created to describe the situation where an online relationship has been happening for a significant amount of time, but the two parties have never met in person (nor have they Skyped or had other real-time interaction to ...

Your Online Dating Preferences Don’t Matter to Me

Posted by:

If you’ve dated online for any amount of time you’ve probably experienced this situation: you find a nearly perfect profile and you’re so excited to contact the person and then notice that they have a requirement that you don’t meet. Do you contact or not?

Generally, I feel like those doing the contacting (often men) need to try to observe the requirements of those they are contacting. In my article on Issues with Older Men Contacting Younger Women, I tackled ...
