We always knew that something was fishy with most online dating sites. If you’ve ever seen the reality TV show, “Catfished,” you know that there are people who pretend to be other than they really are on dating sites.
What we didn’t realize was how pervasive the problem of fake profiles are on most online dating sites!
First, many dating sites are owned by the same people. If you carefully read the terms of service, you’ll see that you have given them permission to publish your profile on multiple sites. Second, many sites simply have tons of fake profiles. For instance, when we were researching software to use for our site, we found that almost all vendors of dating site software would “throw in” 20,000 or more “starter profiles!” You know those are fake!
When the Ashley Madison password breach happened several years ago, it was discovered that 99% of the profiles on that site were fake. Overall, 1 or more in 10 online profiles on dating sites are fake.
If you’ve ever wondered why women never wrote back to you… it could be that they actually didn’t exist! The sole purpose of the major online dating sites is to make money. That’s all they care about, and if they have to fake some profiles along the way – they will.
You won’t find that problem here.
We’re not in this just for the money. Yes, we need to pay the bills to keep the servers going, the software working, and keep our cat in kibble, but this isn’t just a business investment for us – this is really an investment in the happiness of the women in our community.
Online dating can be a frustrating experience – and we’re working to take as much of the frustration out of it for you as we can.
