Checking That The Person You Are Messaging Is Real

30 Oct

You may find that checking that the person that you are messaging is real is something that can be really frustrating to do. You will want to know that the person that you are talking to is an actual person and not somebody pretending to be somebody else or somebody trying to scam you. There are a few different things that you can do to know for sure.

Pay Attention

If you pay close attention to the things that they say and the way that they say them, then this could be a sign. You will find that if you simply ask them some questions and then some follow up questions that they may end up telling on themselves. Don’t be obvious that you are trying to trip them up as this could only upset them.

Dating Site Verifications

It is a good idea to try to only go on dating websites that do verifications of all of the people that are on the site. This will help you to know for sure that the person that you are talking to is actually who they say they are as far as age, sex and their location. Anything else may  be made up.

Video Chat

The best way for you to know for sure is to video chat this person. This way, you will at least know what they look like and be able to see them whenever they are talking. If they look to be flustered when you ask questions you may be onto something.
