If you start interacting with someone who doesn't have a photo online, request them to add a photo and let them know you prefer not to communicate with them unless they put up a photo.
If they have nothing to hide, adding a profile photo should not be a problem at all.
A married man is usually very cagey and does not like to reveal too many details about himself online.
For example, he may refuse to divulge his last name and for many people this is often a dead giveaway that the guy is married.
It is no surprise then, that several Indian users seem to have contributed to making a French website — which provocatively calls itself “the first extramarital dating site made by women” — a virtual hit. “You can meet married or attached men and women from all over the world,” it says, while asking the user to “be honest about your marital status.” The irony couldn’t be more palpable.
Soon after gaining popularity, the site also earned its fair share of criticism for “promoting extramarital affairs”.
I was more than appalled, and somewhat humored to find that there are millions of married men and women searching online for that as en.would say, premier international affair.
In a bid to understand what it is that leads married men and women in India to cheat on their partners, we decided to interact with some firsthand.
While we can't blame the online dating sites for creating this dilemma, these couples are aware of the choices they're making and the consequences that come with these decisions.
The fact that there's actually a market for married people in online dating baffles us a little.
Of course they can always put up fake photos but they usually do not have a photo at all.
In fact, as a general rule, it is best to be suspicious of profiles without photos.
