did you ever see a guy on a place like this who is so handsome he makes your heart skip a beat . you correspond with him a couple times and his words are like the sweetest thing you have ever read. and then you find out he wasn't even real and admin took his letters out of your profile box?  :lol:
If his picture looks like Harrison Ford or Antonio Banderas, chances are he ain't. Just because a guy's picture is attractive, doesn't mean he is an an attractive person, it just means he knows what you want to fantasize. There are lots of interesting, amusing men on 'chat', listen to how they interact with everyone and you'll get a much better idea of who they are. Chances are if he messages you with sweet words and compliments... he's a scammer. If he talks about his dog and going fishing, chances are he has a dog and is going fishing.
It amazes me after one exchanged message, I have now become the love of his life. He then says on the second message, we need to talk privately and wants to exchange email addys and private chat room options. I respond stating I do not give out personal information without fully knowing who I am giving it too. If you wish to visit we can even meet here in chat, to continue to get to know each other. I have never gotten a third message. LOL
I have been told I dont have a romantic streak, or that I am just to dam inquiring. I call it cautious. Before I give my personal information, and then follow with my heart, I want to make sure where its going and to whom.
To put it bluntly, if you overlook the warning signs, follow the yellow brick road, chances are you will meet the evil wizzard.
Be careful out there, and this applies to both sexes.

It doesn't happen just to women.

I recommend:
(1) Wear a blindfold when you write to him. More chance you will see the inner him rather than the outer him. No peeking! Being easily swooned by looks is a common problem. It's like breathing nitrous oxide. Sense goes right out the window. At least close your eyes when you write to him. Of course that means knowing how to touch type, rather than hunt and peck.
(2) Regular exercise to protect your heart. Heart failure isn't fun.
You are a lot of fun Rod.   :lol:

I got another one this morning but the administrative team removed it.
 
Hello all great posts and all right on!!!
I joined the site last night and just love it!!
Thank goodness for all the great advice. tty all later - gotta get back to my work.
Trying not to be such a lonely widow - the site helps. Thanks again.
I have been trying dating sites now for over a year and I agree that you receive many scams as you mention. I am hoping this club will be different as I am new on it. I was on other free dating sites and received from nice looking gentleman interests only to discover they are not who their picture shows. I saw on a TV program talking about online dating that you can check whether there is anything false about a person chatting with you by going to google at “photo reverse imaging” a site which identifies persons who may have been reported and you can check whether their picture is on it. Well, I found 4 of these scammers to date. I must say it has discouraged me from dating sites to date.

this club checks all new profiles for likely scammers/fakes and most are removed quickly but if you have any suspicions, please report them or advise me and I will check.
Denise2020,

I too have run into that and it is very discouraging that there are people whose behavior is less than honorable. I think it is difficult for ANY dating site to maintain a scam-free environment. This club strives to handle these as quickly as they come to attention though and I myself appreciate that.

Thank you to Graham1 and the other moderators!!

I am new here and my online name is Wolf.
Have been on now for about 10 days and no matter who I try to make contact with no one will answer my messages,
This is very discouraging for some trying to find an honest relationship.
I would appreciate the feedback and some honest information.
Thank you, Wolf

Have you checked the messages in your sent box to see if they have been opened? If they have, the envelope at the side will be open; if not then they haven't been seen yet. Some members log in more often than others.
