    Prostitution Services. And spam referral links. Also ID "Verification" for ID thieves. Girl chats you up. You say, we should meet. Then girls says I'm scared, go to this site and type in your ID info to prove to me you are real. Then I'll feel safe. I guess it's pretty lucrative and they still catch losers in their nets.

    I don't know how the whole instagram thing got started, but I think if you get enough followers and are really attractive you'll get promotions and things. So I guess a some people are going for that. That happens more on defunct older style sites, although it seems to be a "reality check," for some before they meet IRL.
    The next few days are going to be a category Level 5 hurricane of trolls, bots, conspiracy theories, fake stories, hoaxes, and hit jobs. MAGA-land is in panic mode, and it will be ugly. Be careful, be skeptical, share good stuff, report bad stuff, and don't argue with idiots.

    Re: Tinder Has Ruined Online Dating

    I have always been skeptical about online dating because I feel that people (men and women alike) will post a picture that makes them look the best when in real life, they are not much of a looker. They can also lie about all sorts of things. The latest guy I had a crush on was from a forum, and he lied about pretty much everything imaginable: his height, hair and eye colours, ancestry, where he lived and worked, how much wealth he had (not that this was important to me) and maybe more, I can't recall because I try to block it out.

    Personally I think the best way to find a dating or potentially long-term partner is through the real-life friends you have. In theory they know the person reasonably well and there is less of a chance of her turning out to be a lunatic.

    Yeah I'm starting to seriously cut back. Its a shame though because I found my first gf on Plenty of Fish, but the site has since devolved into this:

    Re: Tinder Has Ruined Online Dating

    My daughter has told me a lot about this kind of dating scene. Seems the biggest problem is that people's attention spans are getting shorter and shorter. She said that she has been on dates where the guy is still receiving Tinder messages while he is with her. With such convenience and ease of access, it baffles me how young people form enduring monogamous relationships anymore. There is so much temptation to always be looking for the better deal.

    Plus it's hard to really suss someone out online. In my day we picked up people in person. You had to build courage and just do it, or really give someone strong signs that you want them to ask you. Nowadays people don't do much in person.

    I think everyone should experience being rejected at least once IN PERSON. It builds character

    I am so happy I am married. I never liked dating.
    Dittos. I have zero idea how to advise my kids in an era where Tinder-style-interaction is assumed.
