Everything on Facebook can be faked, and so the only way you can tell if a friend request was genuine or not is to speak (yes, in !
) with the person who is trying to add you as a friend.
You might end up kissing all manners of frogs and toads before you get your 'butterfly'.
This may take you a whole year, or you might never get anyone. Online sites give one a chance to learn from the person they are pursuing.
Most people who use online dating sites fear being rejected in actual life.
These sites are a safe haven for persons who fear rejection, and if any occurs, it does not hurt as much as an actual rejection.
Bogus Ben can then approach your other friends, and the fact that he is linked on Facebook to you effectively endorses him to them.
Don’t forget that anyone can create an account on Facebook which uses a bogus name, and scrape together some personal information and a photograph to make it a convincing fake identity to trick you into accepting their friend request.
Sites like Facebook have been used for dating; which may be insecure.
People get conned-of money and expensive gadgets which are emotionally and physically draining.
Three-quarter of these dates ends up as the worst dating experiences.
