7 Things Every Single Person Should Know about Online Dating ...


For the past couple of years, online dating has become an acceptable form of meeting potential partners. If you are still new to the world of online dating however, here are a few things you should know according to guest contributor Emily Green.

Online dating has been around for decades, but it is still gaining in popularity as a way for people to find relationships. If you’re interested in trying one of these sites out for yourself, there are a few things you should know. Take a look at these seven tips so you’re prepared for the adventure of online dating.

1. Online Dating Sites Use Decoy Profiles

Did you know that some profiles you see on online dating sites are not real? Some online dating sites use decoy profiles to keep you on their site longer — it is a business strategy. The idea is that you will see something you like and keep looking through more profiles. As a matter of fact, some online dating sites even respond to messages sent to decoy profiles.

It’s possible to find online dating sites that do not use decoys, but you’ll have to read through the fine print pretty closely. A better strategy is to just know that a decoy will not interact with you long enough to form a date or get involved. Don’t feel bad when people stop responding to your messages. It could simply be because you were interacting with a decoy. Knowing this ahead of time will save you some heartache.
