The internet is a place where people can meet and communicate with each other. Whether they are in two completely different locations or the same location, the internet has helped us communicate as if we are right next to each other.
The internet has also been constructed in a way where people can date online. The internet can be helpful but it can also be dangerous when it comes to online dating. People face many different types of dangers when they are associated with online dating because this world is filled with people who only want to cause damage to other innocent people.
Online dating is dangerous because anyone can create a false profile that makes other people believe they are real but then lead to letdowns, predators and criminals use these sites to find victims, and finally because these sites portray themselves as a trusting site when it is just filled with false advertisement.
There are many online dating sites such as match. Unfortunately these sites are full of people who have created a false profile for themselves. Many of these fake people can be very dangerous because they can be rapists, sex offenders, criminals, etc.
These are examples of the online dating letdowns because it is easy to create a fake profile and manipulate other people into thinking that the fake people are real. The scary part about these letdowns is when a criminal or a predator is trying to find a victim to harm.
When it comes to online dating, criminals or predators take advantage because they feel that online dating sites are bursting with victims they can harm. They create a fake profile that can take about 5 minutes to make and soon enough they are searching the site looking for a gullible victim they can put their hands on. As a matter of fact Wade Ridley confessed to have killed a woman named Anne Simenson, who he had met on Match. This is just one of the many criminals that are out there using these online dating sites as bait.
People continue to use these online dating sites not having a clue about the many dangers that can occur. The reason why people still use these sites is because of the false advertisements that are portrayed.
Many times on T. People just choose to believe this non sense only because it was on television. They feel that since it is on T. There are many things that these companies can do to protect their users from these dangers.
These companies need to realize that in order for people to trust these sites, the companies need to discuss the dangers and safety tips to keep the users away from danger.
There are many things that companies can do to solve the madness of online dating dangers. If online dating companies were smart and protected their users, they would not have to worry about lawsuits, complaints, and resentment. If they cared, they would gain users, publicity, and most importantly trust. Once I met this guy named Tom Johnson on Facebook, I had no idea who he was and he sent me a message. I replied back to his message and later in the conversation he was confessing to me that he was white supremacists, who killed 1 Black man and 1 Hispanic man.
I was freaking out because this guy actually knew who I was and he was threatening me by saying that if I said anything he would come after me. Whether this person was fake or real this is an example of crazy people who stalk the internet. Obviously in an online dating site no one will introduce themselves like Tom Johnson did but they will act as if they are innocent and once its time to meet, the real Tom Johnson comes out.
Online dating sites can be dangerous due to the people who use it. Some people will portray themselves in a truthful manner but others will not. Others will make themselves look like they are perfect when in reality they are posers, criminals, or predators. Online dating sites are mainly dangerous because of all the fake profiles that lead to disappointment, all the criminals or predators seeking for victims, and all the lies that the advertisements present so people can trust online dating.
