Don’t Fake it.

Don’t Fake it.

How many times have you been turned on by a too-good-to-be-true profile on an Internet dating site, only to find out that that’s exactly what it was? Men who claim to be 35-year-old successful stockbrokers turn out to be fifty-something bus drivers (nothing against bus drivers, but you get the point)? Or women who claim to be fit and love working out, yet the only work out they get is walking to the cupboard to grab the biscuit tin

Let’s face it – some profiles you see on Internet dating and personals sites can be  less than honest. So, how can you spot the fakes from the genuine?

1.”My friends tell me I look like Posh Spice or Jude Law . Anyone who says they look like so-and-so better be able to back it up with a picture that you know is them, not someone THEY know who looks like Posh or Jude!

2.”I earn six figures, but my real passion is working with the elderly” People who genuinely have an interest in people and causes beyond themselves don’t make a point of advertising it. They do it because giving something back to people less fortunate is simply rewarding to them, not because it’s something that helps them get dates with women, (its more often men who use this line.)

3.(Men Only) “I’m not looking for a one-night stand.” Listen, Men are ALWAYS looking for a one-night stand – or at least won’t turn one down if it comes their way. Women will never understand this, which is why one-night stands happen in the first place. As the old saying goes, women need a reason to have sex. Men just need a place.

4″I love puppy dogs and ice cream…really…I do.” Please, NO. A lot of guys still go by the old rule that the surest way to win a woman over is by being Mr. Nice Guy. Well let me tell you something. As with the man or woman who’s devoted to donating time and money to charity, the prospective date who goes out of his or her way to tell you what a nice man or woman they are is hiding something. Trust me on this one. Oh, don’t do the walk on the beach at Sunset thing either, can you imagine how many thousands of nice sweet people will be out there, all doing the same thing!
