Dangers of onlne dating
Whether it’s a responding to a newspaper ad, creating an online dating profile or swiping right on the latest dating app, non-traditional dating has it pros and cons.
Some people claim to live happily ever after, but others become victims of scams, blackmail or even more horrific crimes.
With millions of members belonging to many sites, it seems everyone knows or is one of those users.
This is the type of scenario members dream of when signing up for a dating site, but they are not entirely common or guaranteed.
Online dating has many dangers and perhaps one of the most dangerous aspects is people lying about their identities.“When you’re doing something like that, you have to be very careful because you don’t know who you’re talking to,” said Dan Robles, crime prevention officer at the college.
“Being anonymous is one of the scariest things of online dating.e Harmony, arguably one of the most popular dating sites today, launched in the year 2000 and has since gained over 20 million registered users.
Eager to be matched, those users may likely skip through the terms, conditions and miss out on the fact that e Harmony, like many other dating sites, does not conduct criminal background checks, although they reserve the right to.
“But you can do your own little investigation,” said Robles.“It’s so easy for people to Google and find out about a person.” He points out a site called Family Watchdog on which anyone can search for offenders by name or area.The Circle of 6 app is also a reliable safety tool to have.According to Robles, a lot of students at the college have it downloaded on their phones.The app allows users to alert their circle if they’re in a dangerous situation and even sends a map of where the user is.Although online dating sites and mobile apps have changed how people date, the fact that dangerous people still exist has not. Pleasant Police Department has dealt with two instances of criminal sexual conduct (CSC) as a result of people who met using a social media site or dating application.The most recent incident involved a female student from Central Michigan University who was sexually assaulted after meeting up with a man she met on the mobile dating app Tinder.Tinder, for the unfamiliar, is a matchmaking app that takes pictures and information from Facebook that users then have the option to like or dislike.If two people both like each other’s profile it is called a match and the option to message each other becomes available.For the woman who was assaulted, that is exactly how it started.The two met on Tinder and talked for a few weeks before he started asking her if she would like to meet for coffee.
