    Default Why do people create fake online profiles

    Sup fellas,

    I use online dating sites such as POF or OKCupid for practice and also to see if I can find easy lays. I don't think its wrong it just another tool available to me.

    Now I guess what I'm wondering is, does anyone have any clue why ppl create fake profiles on these things? Some are clearly fake while others seem very legit until one day boom you realize it isn't. Truly it don't mean much of a thing if say you are also working 20 other profiles at the same time and all but it's still annoying because it's almost like wasted time and effort. Know what I mean?

    Anyway, I don't know everything in the world so I figured I asked.

    - Scam

    - To have guys come and talk to them (to get validation even if they actually are ugly)

    - To have fun on a drunk night with friends

    - (a bit sneakier) To check on someone when you don't want them to know you are the one checking

    - This one is super sneaky, but meh. You *can* make fake profiles of lame people (lame stuff in the profile, non-attractive pictures) and then send lame messages to a girl you are interested in ("sup", "hey, your hot, wanna come 2 my place???"), before sending her a nice opener with your actual profile. This way, you look better because you are compared to lamer than usual people (don't remember the name of the "I look great because the place is full of lame people" technique). As I said, super sneaky, and never tried it myself, but the thought occurred

    Because there are just as many fake people online as there are in real life

    Badoo is the worse than POF or OK cupid. More than half of the girls who contact me end up being fake.

    as we know, the internet is a playground for hackers/scammers/phonies.

    They might be out for money, personal info., hijacking accounts, etc.

    I was actually surprised I hadn't come across it yet, when I realized I probably already did. These two females I was talking to both sent me their yahoo emails (shady in the first place anymore lol) with words like 'lonely', and 'love' in them, so I already thought that was weird.
    Then I noticed one of the girls looked different in her pics, and I was like what the?!
    Plus they both, not at the same time, sent me pretty deep messages about their life, and finding true love blah blah hey I'm no sucker geez, that's sort of a turn-off anyways lol.
    Then I noticed, they both had the exact same paragragh in one of their legnthy emails. That's when I went with my gut and never replied haha, seems phony.
    I'll send u the duplicate msg if u wanna be aware of it.

    I'm guessing they sucker poor chumps into handing over money, with their heart-wrenching tales of finding love and happiness ha, crazier things have happened.
    I actually just saw a dateline show about an ex-rapper doing this to girls on there, and their case against him turned up pretty grey even though he was charged.

    Anyway, good to look out for it

    Do you know this woman? I've been talking with her for 9 months until I discovered that she is fake. I met her on OKcupid. She sent me many fake pictures of Slovakian model and model stole from online. All of her pictures are fake.
