Dating nowadays has gone beyond just a mere meeting with the person and chatting face to face. Today’s world of technology has made dating between persons easier via the internet. You would agree with me that as you surf through the internet, you will see various advertisements on ‘Free dating Sites’. You will also agree with me that these dating sites are helping to connect people to their lovers and friends.
There are so many dating sites on the internet and more are still coming up every day. You may want to take advantage of these dating sites to find yourself a true friend and lover.
Dating sites are gaining more grounds on the internet in the sense that most people want to have fun that they are not changed to have in the physical sense. Every now and then, people want to connect with more people. And probably people can be friends with.
Though there might be sex offenders and predators on the net but believe me, there are still genuine people who you can find intimacy with.
Are you thinking of getting into any dating site for one reason or the other, then there are few things that you do need to consider first before joining any dating site.
1. Check out the site’s physical layout
A site that has a vision of meeting up with the needs of their visitor should be able to look into their design structure. Is the site missed up with unnecessary graphics and clustered fonts with jam-packed sections? If something like this is observed, that probably shows that the management of such dating site is careless. And if they are careless with what is on the outside, how then can they be careful with what is on the inside? If the designers are not able to build a good interface of the site, then there are chances that they would also fail in constructing important features inside member’s dashboard. If member’s dashboards are not secured, their data likewise is not safe and there is every tendency that a cheap hacker can get in and take important information of their member. And no member wants that to occur. And most importantly, if you are paying to be a member, be sure that your credit card details is as well not safe. So, what am I trying to say here? Know that dating site design and layout speaks a lot in determining what the site can offer to her members when they eventually join.
2. Run a quick search
what do I mean here? Before signing up for a dating site, there must have been persons who must have signed up before you. Now, take a good walk around the site. Get to know the people that are in that site; observe the kind of image they upload there; pay keen interest in the style of writing. A person profile goes a long way in defining that person. Do the profiles there look odd? Confusing? Mannerless? Or whatever. If you get to observe that most of the profiles there are nothing to write home about, then that shows that the site pays less interest and attention in screening their members. Probably, they are just there to grab the money that comes from member’s registration. If a dating site is not capable of screening her members before registration, there are chances that people with bad intent would also be admitted into the site. So, take your time and run a thorough search around the site before joining.
3. Look out for Privacy Page
4. Examine some other links
It is often said that the kind of people you follow tells who you are. Browse through to see who and what this site is working with. Are they working with sex-sites? Are they working with spam or scam sites? If possible click on those affiliate links to know more about them and what they offer. Am sure you wouldn’t want your information to be sold out to sites you don’t know about.
5. Check the age of the site
You may think this is not important, but it is. Some new sites are mostly faced with bugs and this may take some time for the programmers to fix it. Check the bottom of the site to see it’s CopyRight as this would determine if the site is fully functional and free of bugs. Checking the age would also help you to estimate the number of members that the site has gotten.
6. Take note of some dishonest words
Have you ever come across some sites that after registering, you will get a message like this, “You are the 5000th member”. And if you observe very well, you will find out that mostly new sites are fond of this. Sites that have been running for years are not in support of these. How then do I detect a dishonest lying site? Look out for a link “Who is online now” click on it to find out the number of members that are presently online at that time. If you come to find out that you are just the only one online at that time, then believe me, something is wrong somewhere. How can you be the number 5000 and out of these larger number, no one is online except you… it’s quiet amazing! At least a site having up to thousands of members should have a good number of persons that are online anytime of the day. If you come across a dating site like this, it is better not to register with them as they claim to be what they are not. Am sure you don’t want to have any dealings with a dishonest site. Leave that site and look else where. Going on to register with them is like playing with the tail of a sleeping lion. So, for safety measures, I advice you don’t register with such a dating site.
