Between June 2008 and April 2010 I was employed by Global Personals of Windsor, a hugely successful business that runs various online dating sites including Singles365.com and AdultSingles365.com. The company also has thousands of live partner sites via their White Label platform which allows individuals and companies to build their very own dating site and to be up-and-running in no time at all.
Up until now it has never crossed my mind about putting together a written piece about the secrets of online dating, mainly out of respect for my previous employer and past colleagues. The reason for my change in attitude is the constant threads that are posted to forums that I often debate/endeavour to answer questions on, “Is [site name] full of fake profiles?”, “Is online dating a scam?” etc. In future I will be able to direct those users here, where I’m hoping that they’ll find all the answers to their queries.
The purpose of this article has nothing to do with exposing the moral wrong doings of online dating practices, but to warn people that the fairy tale advertisements that you often see on the television will rarely be fulfilled in reality.
