Fake Profiles... It's so disappointing and a waste of time.

    I'm pretty sure this topic has come up in the past however, I would like to discuss why guys use other guys photos.

    The reason I bring this up is because I was recently told by a close friend on here that someone in particular is fake (don't want to give out any names) icon_redface.gif

    He gave me specific reasons:

    1.) He bailed on meeting up with another friend of his.
    2.) He bailed on meeting up with him.
    3.) He was acting shady and didn't give him his number.

    Besides the fact that his profile isn't "Verified", I also assume that he's fake...

    Now, it's unfortunate that this is happening more so often because it interfers with someones feelings, and it's just a waste of time...

    So then why do people create fake profiles?....Yes, I know it may because he is ugly or self conscious about himself... But, why use someone else's photos? What do they get out of this?...Isn't the point of joining these websites to meet someone you get along with and eventually meet up with them?

    It just doesn't make sense. I've had this problem in the past as well.

    Anywho, thanks for listening to my complaining!

    Happy Holidays icon_smile.gif

    Just assume everyone hotter than a 7/10 is a fake. I know I won't need to be here if I was more than a 7 icon_biggrin.gif

    And rest assured that the 10's here who are real probably have "reasons" for being here, so you aren't missing out. icon_biggrin.gif

    People who set up don't risk or lose anything, and yet they can have some cheap thrills by inciting disagreements, getting guys that they find attracted interested in them (or at least, an idea of them), causing general mayhem, etc.

    Don't get too attached or friendly with someone who you suspect is fake, and you'll be OK. The profiles are pretty easy to spot, if you ask me. Just search the web for their picture and if it's all over a ton of other websites, chances are it's not real!

    It bothers me that the people in RJ are hotter compared to the common population in real life. Everyone is more or less higher than a 7.

    Imagine all the beautiful babies we can produce if we get together. And if men can get pregnant.

    There are some very bored people out there. They just want to chat. Kill some time. Maybe get some cheap thrills.

    That's why it's never a good idea to invest yourself emotionally with an online relationship, whether it's romantic or platonic. Verify that the guy is legit. Meet in person or go on web cam. Once you know he's real, you can spend more time establishing a friendship or whatever.

    Yeah, I agree. That's why I don't bother wasting my time talking to someone for a long time without knowing if they are legit or not. So, I make sure they are who they say they are...at least can prove to me that their photo is really them.

    Also, I bet these "fake" guys enjoy acting like someone else in order to get someone to send them nudes. Lol. Something a friend told me icon_smile.gif

    Yeah, usually web cam is what proves it all. If they say they don't have a webcam, chances are they are fake. We do live in the year 2012, and who doesn't have a cam on their laptop/computer or phone? Hmmm. That would just seem suspicious if you ask me. Overall, I don't look for anything related to dating on these kind of websites because problems like these can happen.

    Lol its because many men use pictures that are like five years old or not even them to impress others.

    Then also realize when two attractive people get together the kid tends to be loopy looking .

    Sorry about your experience. Fakes can be really depressing. There are some REALLY good liars out there.icon_sad.gif

    Everyone gets duped until they get burned or taught before that happens. Net-savviness should be taught in school, even if just for platonic internet interaction.

    Surefire way to tell if that hot guy is fake? If he asks for cock pics right out of the gate.
