Read more on the profile fabrication of 2015 and how to alleviate this problem here.
According to the recent news on Sky News, one of out five dating profile is fabricated but the question is what are they fabricating and why?
Here is how the fabrication on free online dating profile is happening on two ends
1. Registered user do not mention their correct age but, this is not new. According to latest survey 18% online singles admit that they don’t tell their right age when they create an online dating profile.
2. Study also finds that the website owners are sending dented painted profiles and when we say dented painted profiles it mean profile picture of one user, age of another, location of someone else and many distorted facts to make profile searching very frustrating. Not only do you have to filter through profiles that do not meet your criteria but you also have to contend with fake profiles.
There are plenty of sites that are practicing this to get more and more singles visit their site time and time again. Sad part of this is happening all over the world, we test for some of the Indian dating sites and found that this is very much evident there.
The next time you join any free dating sites make sure you check out the few profiles and when you get newsletters check out the search feature of that dating site and search for the same profile if you don’t find that profile then you know what to do!!

Dr. Dato’s Brief:
Previously, we discussed how online dating can have a huge client base of different types of people, so for women in particular, they need to do some pretty nifty screening and filtering.
Often the websites have a filter where you can screen out unwanted people that do not meet your criteria, however, this is based on the understanding the all profiles have been created honestly with no fibs. You may find that even though you have filtered out a specific age group that you are only interested in say ‘30-45′, you can find some young kid who maybe posing as an elderly men just for fun. In this case these types of people will be able to communicate with you.
Although, there are these online tools which can help to a great extent, you will need to use your wits about you when you come across a profile that catches your eye. Next, we will show you pointers to do further screening that will help you determine the genuineness and sincerity of the profile that interests you.
