Spotting red flags when dating Asian singles online

Meeting and dating Asian singles online is often just as thrilling and romantic as meeting and dating in real life, but there are some things you should be wary of in the age of the Internet.

Red flags - warning

Lots of people have found love online: although it might seem like there are a lot of Asian singles on the Internet, it is possible to meet someone you really connect with.  However, there are always a few bad seeds out there, which is why we’ve put together this list of red flags to watch for as you continue to date online:

  • She’s too eager to meet in person.  Online dating can be taken slowly, so if someone is pressuring you to meet in person before you are ready, it can be a red flag.  There is no rush, so take your time.  After you’ve been corresponding for a while, feel free to try and meet face-to-face.
  • There’s no bio in the profile.  The bio in an online dating profile is a critical part of the process.  Otherwise, how do you know you really want to get to know this person better?  If there is no bio at all, this person is either really boring or might be hiding something.  Be careful.
  • There aren’t any photos.  Another huge part of online dating is the photos.  If your online love doesn’t have any photos or the picture is out of focus and hard to see, you might want to be careful.
  • Canned responses.  If the responses or messages you’ve received seem too robotic or “canned”, go ahead and keep looking.  Lots of other people might have gotten the same communication and it could be a scam.
  • Repeated cancellations.  Things come up in life, but if a person makes plans and cancels them repeatedly, you might want to move on.

Online dating, like face-to-face dating, has its benefits and its risks.  However, it is easy to reduce these risks and make the most of your online dating experience by paying attention and staying vigilant.
