Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate. We hit it off well and she gave me her private number.

For weeks, even months, you may chat back and forth with one another, forming a connection. But ultimately, it’s going to happen—your new-found “friend” is going to ask you for money.
So you send money…but rest assured the requests won’t stop there.
But today, on Valentine’s Day, we want to warn you that criminals use these sites, too, looking to turn the lonely and vulnerable into fast money through a variety of scams.These criminals—who also troll social media sites and chat rooms in search of romantic victims—usually claim to be Americans traveling or working abroad. Their most common targets are women over 40, who are divorced, widowed, and/or disabled, but every age group and demographic is at risk. You’re contacted online by someone who appears interested in you.He or she may have a profile you can read or a picture that is e-mailed to you.The pictures you were sent were most likely phony lifted from other websites.The profiles were fake as well, carefully crafted to match your interests.
