The Problem with Fake User Profiles (Part 1)
Let’s face it - dating websites are full of fake user profiles. In a separate blog entry, we have given tips on how to spot fake profiles. In Part 1 of this 2-part blog, let’s discuss fake profiles created by real users to indulge in their personal fantasies. Why are there fake profiles on dating sites and who puts them there?
Fake Profiles of Real Users Who Want More Attention
Some users are just not that attractive. They know it. They have used real photos of themselves and real description of themselves on dating sites and have gotten no, or very low interest. Out of despair, these people use fake photos and/or fake descriptions to attract interest. Usually that means they will not be able to go on a real-life date with people they have met on the dating site because the truth would come out.
We believe, these people could get the interest they crave by improving their profile photos and description. See our tips on profile photos for men, and tips profile photo for women here.
These people enjoy the interest they get and the chats they can have because of their fake profiles. It’s just sad but there I no bad intention behind these fake profiles.

Fake profiles of gay men posing as women
Speaking with gay men, I was told by many of them that one of their fantasies is to have sex with a straight man. This one gay ex-colleague, told me he had met a straight man who was interested in him. He told me, “So I had sex with this straight physical trainer with a perfect body. He used to come to my house after work with a bottle of wine and we would have sex.” That is of course impossible. The minute this “straight” man had sex with my gay friend he was not straight anymore.
But on dating sites it is possible for gay man to indulge in this fantasy. Posing as a woman they can chat with straight men and sense how they create real desire in them.

Transgenders who do not state their status as transgender on their dating profile is similar but not the same in that the profile is not per say fake but lacks what would be considered by many an important piece of information. Read our blog entry on transgender profile here.
