It pays to remember that your Facebook profile picture showing your best snowboarding angles might not be the best photograph to bag a date with.
Your profile is also the best place to indicate what kind of relationship you are looking for and, most importantly, whether you are travelling to Asia to find the woman of your dreams.
To help keep you safe when you are interacting online we’ve put together a quick guide to avoiding scams on dating sites: If you have any misgivings about the conduct or details of another member you contact through any of these sites then you should contact their customer services to raise your concerns.
Most sites have robust anti-scam policies in place and will be able to investigate on your behalf but we would always recommend trusting your own intuition; if something doesn’t seem right, then it more than likely isn’t.
You can browse as many profiles as you like for free but ultimately you need to pay to make contact with other members.
