Law regarding dating agencies
Though predators who frequent online dating sites are generally interested in harming adults, there have been cases of women dating men online only to find out that the men were interested in those women’s young children for horrible reasons.
If you mention your children in your profile and potential dates seem to have more questions about them than you, it is a sign that you should not ignore.
This warning applies to men as much as women, because there have been reports of men being lured into situations where they were robbed (or worse) by multiple parties simply because they didn’t think they personally had to worry about meeting someone dangerous online.
Though it’s possible that an actual model with a portfolio was matched with you on a dating site, it’s much more likely that the profile is fake.
On the other hand, he or she could be requesting so much time to hide something.
Fake profiles are generally used to mine information from unsuspecting singles, or to convince you to download malware (generally disguised as a photo file) that will steal your data and put you at risk.
Individual profiles are often used by scammers, but even worse are entire websites created for the same purpose.
When it comes to online dating, honesty is always the best policy and you should expect it from your dates and the sites you find them on.
Some users might feel it necessary to request any and all potential dates are “420 friendly” or otherwise inclined to participate in recreational drug use.
