Married men hate to post pics of themselves online, so they either post no pictures or use pictures that don’t show their faces – think pictures with their back to the camera, pictures with just their body showing, pictures where his face looks very poorly lit/silhouetted.If he offers to email you better pics, why wouldn’t he have just posted them in the first place?Some estimates are that as many as 40% of male profiles on dating websites are those of married men posing as bachelors.
“You made me smile just looking at your picture and I would love to meet you,” he said. A week later I received a second message from Tee Up4Us, which read: “Hi, Jim is married. You’re right to trust instincts because the quicker an online man can garner personal information about you, the easier it is to seduce and hoodwink you.
Perhaps the greatest problem facing the online dating industry is that of “phony” profiles.
For example: These are just a few of the signs you may pick up on as you get to know someone better.
Online dating sites have created a wily playground for scammers, romance artists and married men (and women) who secretly cheat on their spouses.
After many wasted hours they discover that the vast majority of these men are liars.
As the New York Times reported, “Many online daters turn out to be married, and it is taken for granted that everybody lies a little.” (6/29/03).
Married men create phony profiles and present themselves as single men looking for love, commitment and marriage.
They conceal their true identity with a secret email address, a secondary cell phone, and if necessary a post office box.
Some of the individuals who do this are so adept at spinning their lies that the fabrications are impossible to detect until you're so deep into the relationship that you feel victimized by the fact that you even dated this person.
