    My friends tell me that many profiles in these sites are just fake or to play the time. True or untrue? Pls feel free to share your experience. Thanks.

    That seems a little high to me, but it is possible. I havn't been here long, but I think I've already encountered two "fake" profiles.

    It's true I guess.
    Especially in the chat room.
    However , most of the members who post frequently on the forum are real profiles.

    I'd say 1 out of 20 profiles are fake. Most are easy to spot though.

    I'm fake.
    Do you really think someone as awesome as me could possibly exist?

    There are also a lot of profiles that haven't been logged into for a couple years.

    Usually my tip is when they have a great body and/or face and post one maybe two pics of themselves.

    A lot of the hot guys I've seen are verified so we can drool responsibly.

    There are people with more than one verified profile.

    The people who approve them don't remember every face that goes through here and it isn't that hard to make some changes to your appearance. They aren't really fake, and I'm honestly not sure why they exist.

    The unattractive profiles like me are real. I mean if you're going to be fake why not just post pics of Channing Tatum icon_neutral.gif

    Because I don't really see what other guys seem to see in him. heh. Most guys are drooling over him and It doesn't make sense to me.

    But I guess it is good that not everyone has the same tastes. And it wouldn't be smart to make a profile using a picture of someone you would actually recognize.

    Guys, don't put too much faith into the Verification system here. There have been plenty of Verified fakes in the past. And I'm sure there are some now.

    In our world where there is a lot of high technologies we could no longer distinguish who is real or fake, but one thing I know is to rely on my instinct.icon_wink.gif

    We went to an RJ meetup of fake profiles. Here's what they looked like in real life crowded into one room.

    There are tons of fake profiles on here, if they aren't verified- chances are about 1/3 they are fake.
