Yesterday, we talked about the dating safety story on online dating. So, will you get so scared that you are doubting whether it is safe to put up a dating profile now? Don’t worry. If you have such questions, it’s quite normal and you are not alone. There are millions of other singles had exactly the same confusion with online dating.
With a very small cost, a nascent group of companies can help you perform a detailed background check on the potential date you meet in match.com, eharmony.com, millionairecupid.com, as well as most dating sites in the whole nation.
If you don’t want to do the background screening in detail, you can also refer to the verification data from dating sites themselves. Friendfinder.com, Wealthychats.com, Hottieonly.com and hundreds of more dating sites verify their members with their own identity verification process. Generally, more than 90% of these verified members are credible and valid. On the other side, some online dating companies argued that the verification can be hard hard for execution, due to the incomplete databases in state and city, let alone some other countries worldwide.
Elizabeth krugman, a dating counselor from seekwealthy.com, has her own comments on the background check: “The purpose of the background check is good, but it can be thwarted. Luckily, most people on these dating sites are good people.” She also told us that she met her husband through the dating site she served.
There are also some law enforcement experts wanted to help online daters work on the background check. Buchholz and Scott were two of them. They set up a company to help people do back background search, at the cost of $9.95.
Some states also tried to make some laws to regulate the Internet dating safety, which helps improving the dating safety too. In New York, you can find the “Internet Dating Safety Act”, which requires dating site to post common-sense safety tips, like “meeting in public”, etc. On seekwealthy.com, successfuldates.com, you can find 100+ dating safety tips, while the tips are on increasing.
At last, all we want to say is there’s no safety problems with online dating itself. Online dating, is just a platform for searching and meeting other singles. The intention is absolutely good. The only problem related to dating safety is whether you can use it appropriately to protect your own safety.
