Standards a dating site should measure up to before you sign up…
Like any business you consider doing business with, it’s wise to shop around, you will soon see that not all online dating sites are of an equal standard…far from it…
When you are in the research stage of deciding which singles dating site to join, take note of the sites construction. A dating site that has missing graphics, missing images or text that doesn’t fit on the web page, or irregular fonts, steer clear and move onto the next site. When a site is missing or lacking important presentation details, it’s pretty common the site will also lack security or privacy features.
You should also know that many online dating sites act as affiliates for the main stream dating sites. So you will often find that you will be encouraged to click through to other dating sites so the original website owner who referred you to the site you sign up to receives a commission from your sale.
For aspiring online dating site owners, a white label dating programme is similar to an offline franchise system whereby you are given a website based on an existing model but the franchisee is responsible for marketing and attracting traffic to the white label dating site.
Before you make the decision to register with an online dating site, take note of the member profiles on the home page. Some dating sites practice deceptive behaviour by posting bogus pictures to make their dating site seem attractive. If a dating site you are considering joining displays member photos of people who look too good and too perfect, you can be certain you are dealing with a less than honest company – so look elsewhere – don’t risk it. Some dating sites verify its members against their credit card details which is a very positive sign you’re dealing with a reputable dating site.
For peace of mind you should only select a singles website that offers a privacy link and terms and conditions. By signing up to a dating site, you are often agreeing to and acknowledging that: 1/ your personal information will remain confidential. 2/ your personal information (such as your email address) is subject to being sold off for marketing purposes – so you could start to see your spam mail increase by agreeing to the terms and conditions – read the fine print!
When you are happy you have found the right dating site for you, try to practice some of the safety tips. Do this for peace of mind so you know that you have done all the research necessary to start enjoying the fun and excitement dating online offers.
You will need to use some common sense when interacting online, but here are some cardinal rules you should never bend.
* Never give out personal details such as credit card details.
* Always meet someone for the first time in a public place.
* Tell someone where you are going.
* Don’t let your date drive you home if you’ve just met.
If you do happen to meet someone online that has acted in a deceptive or creepy manner, let the site owner know about it, or file an abuse report which will hopefully see the site administrator kick them off the site and improve its members online dating experiences.
