You or someone you know may be dating this person online right now. No matter how good they sound, things aren't what they appear to be.
It’s no secret that there are deceptive people online who want to take advantage of others who might be in a vulnerable state — such as when they’re looking for love.
Send a selfie (keep it PG) and ask for one of them right then.
You can also plug a photo into Google’s reverse image search to see if it appears somewhere else (aka a stock photo depository).
The end goal of online dating is to find someone you like and get offline ASAP.
When the person you’re talking to constantly has an excuse for why they can’t meet up, you should be wary.
