Cat_lover_2014: One contact - during what period?
One week...month...year...?

I've got long list of "contacts", but when it comes to real meeting or at least adding as friend on Facebook, nothing is going on.
All of them are disappearing in a fog. lol


So, dear Cat Lover_2014, what is a year in a human life? What about, if you are in search for the love of your life? You can find a partner in a second, but is it the real one? I don't think this kind of web sites is the real stuff for that? Make a life in your neighbourhood. But it can be nice to learn about other people all over the world. Oh, btw. read what other CS people write to you, it is mostly good stuff.

Re: Real interest or time wasting?
The biggest problem are scammers but there are also many other factors, everything also depends on the other person's feelings, those interested stays, those who have no interest after a while disappears, to me such has never happened in real life to find a man who had such strong feelings for me.

Demi7: I think time waist. All that is here are very old , or muslims that want someone to stay in the country, or and scammers. Never seen such a bad dating side honestly.


The site is the best! I mean it! The people using it, are abusing it. Did you ever try a site for a pay? There the scammer is the owner himself. You will never get anything for your money! Except a bunch of lies.

Re: Real interest or time wasting?
Depends on what you define as time wasted, if I talk to someone and have a nice time doing so, even if it doesn't lead to a relstionship to me is time well spent. wine

Thanks for warning us! blues

Re: Real interest or time wasting?
Actually, nobody had suffered yet. But only because some people and this site as well warned me about scammers' style of communication.
At least few of positions of this list are really "popular" among scammers.
But for me the main hint, that my penpals scammer, is one(or two) picture in profile. When you ask about more, scammers ask for your private email address, but no pictures are coming. For such cases I have one email, which I don't use normally, where I test scammers.

Honestly, I would say many people are. I know I am and I find it disheartening that someone either does not ready my post and emails me based on my photo. Read the post!!! I am not a "God fearing Trump loving'" woman. I think my profile alludes to that.
However, I have written to two men who I believe are not fakes.

Malfidus: Hi Jefke,Dag Jefke

I have been to the US and the people there need to have an ID if not they
could be picked up as illegals. In the UK you still don't need to have one but...still for how long?? (...)


Foreigners wanting to work in the US need a green card in order to work over there (issued by US authorities prior to their arrival). Any illegal immigrant will face difficulties in finding a job, whereas the green card opens almost any doors for employment (you cannot get elected president :-))) and you may face problems when applying for certain positions as a civil servant.)
An ID-card may have been introduced recently, but it has been common to identify yourself with your driving licence. Anyhow, the US has no central population register. Consequences are that several federal administrations overspend to collect information on (US-tax authorities) or to spy on (Homeland security office) any possible inhabitant whether legal or residing illegally in the country.

Greenlake19: There are real people out there.

You may wish to read about scammers and catfish to detect fake profiles and avoid wasting your time with them.

Regarding pictures, you can use Google Image Search or Bing per Image to find if the picture was stolen from some celebrity for example. Women scammers often use photos of movie stars, so they can be easily detected.


Very well said!

Re: Real interest or time wasting?
The overall impression are that virtually everyone on here, at some tome is fake/ unreal, and that all profiles are fakes; total lies, etc. same with all the photos. Taken as some type of user's gospel, it certain;y discourages anyone from ever actually reading what people say either on their profiles or posts which usually are the best means of ascertaining if they can even write in coherent English without sounding like a reject from either kindergarten or from the sand-box level. Then again, perhaps they may be stoned on some drugs and can't make out their keyboards properly...which seems to be rather 'normal' on CS as a whole.
May we all be delivered from 'Normal'!laugh

As a lot have said, there are a lot of scammers on this site, also on most dating sites. There always will be especially on free sites.

Saying that they’re quite easy to spot and block.

I met someone on this site 7 years ago and we had a good relationship for 6 years. I also met several people male and female, we stay in touch and have been friends for many years. We all met up in Benidorm and had great fun together.

It just takes time and perseverance, if you are truely wanting to meet someone special and you are honest, you will, I believe.

Then again, I am one of the great optimists cheering teddybear kiss

In all honesty many are genuine, but you have to weed out a lot of the unsuitable. These are the ones who nobody wants for good reasons.

1. The scammers. These generally leave you alone after a time when they see you aren't an idiot.
2. The gold diggers. These are usually women looking for wealthy older men for a comfortable life of luxury.
3. The Walter Mitty's. These are people who invent an online life of fiction.
4. The everlasting pen pals. You never get to meet them. They should really be on a pen pal site instead.
5. The drama queens. They live an online life of drama, but not much else.
6. The platonic. Whilst sex is neither the be all or end all in a relationship, it is desired at some time or other. This group will have prospective partners hanging on as long as possible, probably a year to forever if they could. They are obvious time wasters.
7. The mentally deranged. Self explanatory.
8. The time wasters. (See 6 The Platonic).
9. The invisible. Those without pictures. You can work out for yourselves why they show none on their profiles.
10. Those who do not admit to their real age or try to disguise things like gross obesity.

These are many negative categories you may think, but I personally have found many genuine women on this site, so they aren't all scammers. I was married to a woman for seven years who I met on a dating site.
You get what you want with a little patience on here.
