There are dating sites you trust and others you shouldn’t.
Do your research.

Showing this proactive nature in seeking out a dating site that is right for you, increases the likelihood you locate a dating site you trust.
Doing proper and intense research is beneficial, but don’t lose yourself in it.
Too much analysis leads to inaction, as you are overloading your mind with too much information.
Once you have a select number of dating sites you are intrigued about, sign up for a free trial on each of them.
There is nothing like real life experience when you are curious about what dating sites are trustworthy, or whether a trustworthy dating site exists.
Several dating sites offer free trials for a limited period.
Some trials last a few days, others go as long as a month.
Once you sign up on each of the dating sites, be proactive.
You have a limited time to test out these dating sites, so don’t waste time.
Read dating profiles and send messages to people who interest you.
This is why you signed up on the dating site.
In this vain, don’t sit back and wait on people to message you first.
When you are proactive, you are generating conversations with multiple matches.
Talking to a good number of people gives you an idea of what they are about.
Based on the conversations you are having, over time, you know whether these are people that have romantic potential or not.
On top of this, you get a sense of how active the dating site is.
Some dating sites trick people into becoming paying members by using dating profiles that are outdated and no longer active.
A number of these dating profiles haven’t been active in months or years.
A dead dating site with little activity decreases your odds of meeting a match.
By being proactive on the dating site, you get a good idea about how active the dating site is.
This is to your benefit.
An active dating site has lots of dating options.
An inactive dating site doesn’t.
This is how you know which dating sites are worth your time and money.
While a free trial is beneficial in giving you a sense of who uses the dating site and how active the dating site is, it gives you a chance to observe how much of a priority it places on keeping its members safe.
Dating sites that aren’t trustworthy don’t care about fake dating profiles and fake messages.
Once you have signed up for a free trial on a dating site, be cognizant of the dating profiles you come across and the messages you receive.
Fake dating profiles steal pictures from the internet to pose as a member on the dating site.
When you come upon a dating profile with pictures of someone who looks too good to be true, do an internet search of an image in their dating profile.
When you see it somewhere else as someone else, it’s a stolen picture on a fake dating profile.
Whenever you receive messages that asks you to go somewhere else for conversation such as another website or social media, this is a suspicious and fake message.
Monitor how many of these fake profiles and fake messages you experience on the dating site.
Receiving a ton of these means that you aren’t on a trustworthy dating site.
Every dating site has to contend with fake profiles and fake messages, but the trustworthy ones work hard to remove those fake profiles from their database.
A dating site that doesn’t care to do this is one that is riddled with fake profiles.
Witnessing an excessive number of these fake profiles and receiving an excessive number of fake messages, is your prompt that you needn’t become a member of the dating site.
