The Shocking Truth About Online Dating

The Shocking Truth About Online Dating
Know what you're doing before you get started.
Everywhere you look a new online dating site springs up, but do they work? The truth may shock you!

Online dating can be a fantastic way to meet men, but it can also be frustrating, confusing, and time consuming. There are so many different dating websites out there, how do you know which one to choose? Which site is most likely to have the kind of men you want to meet?

Then when you finally settle on a site, you’ll be hit with a flood of messages from eager men in your inbox. Which ones are genuine? Which ones are liars? Which ones just want to meet for some "fun times?" Which ones are pretending to be something they're not?

More from YourTango: You Asked, He Answered: How Do I Tell If He's A Sex Addict?

How many times have you met a guy from a dating website, and found out he's nothing like his profile? He described himself as toned and tall, with clear blue eyes, and he turns out to be short and fat, with a glass eye!

Guys have a habit of putting the superhero version of themselves online. They portray what they think women want them to be. Of course, it's completely pointless because you're going to find out the truth when you meet him.

So with all these things going against you, is it even possible to find love online? Isn't the whole thing just one big scam, designed to take your money, and fill you with false hope?

I can tell you confidently, no, online dating isn't a scam. It's very possible to find love, but you have to know what you're doing. You also have to think a little bit outside the box. In fact, did you know it's possible to use online dating sites to meet men offline?

Yep, you can use sites like Match.com to meet men offline, face-to-face, so you can see what they're really like, and see whether you have any genuine chemistry with them. Doesn't that sound better than wasting weeks chatting to someone on the phone, only to discover you can't stand the sight of them?

Recently I shot a video with my friend Patti Stanger (The Millionaire Matchmaker), all about online dating sites, and how to use them effectively.

Patti is the ideal person to listen to when it comes to meeting men online, because she met her long-term boyfriend online. In this revealing video, you'll hear us talk about how to capitalize on the variety of dating sites around, and reveal how your friends could hold the key to you meeting your dream man.

Check out the video below, and if you're not already subscribed to my YouTube channel, get signed up! It's completely free, and I post a brand new video each week, packed with dating tips and relationship advice for women. Enjoy the video!
