For many people who date online, the prospect of meeting someone abroad is sometimes a situation that presents itself. Sometimes, people go to online dating sites just for that reason alone. And even there are thousands of people living in other countries just waiting to make a connection with someone, somewhere.
Those people are probably honest and trustworthy and willing to do what it takes to make a relationship work.
So, when you finally do meet someone who fits the bill of the type you are looking to meet, before you actually jump on the first plane to Brazil, make sure they really are who they say they are, or you could find yourself in hot water and alone.
Here are some tips to make sure the person you are dating is who they say they are. But remember, no list is ever definitive, and there are always loopholes around anything. So with that in mind, here are some things to remember before shelling out the first class cash.
Wile it may seem a simple concept to meet someone, fall in love and spend or lives together, there are thousands willing to go to any length to get what they want, that can be the problem, too. While there are probably honest and trustworthy souls out there, there are just as many who would not think twice about hurting you to get what they want. The first thing to look for in a budding relationship is their relationship with money.
Because you don’t want to pry into their financial lives, noticing things about theirs is key to spotting a fake love form a mile away so you will need to be patient, first off, and wait for them to start asking you for money. I’m not talking about just $5 or $10, no. I am talking about large-ish sums of money such as maybe anything over $100. If the requests start coming in, pay close attention to what they are saying. Is there always something ’terrible” going o they need help with If they seem to have the worst luck in the world, chances are they are trying to scam you. Also look for how they want you to send the money. If wire transfers to two or three different people sounds familiar to you, then back away and hope they don’t remember your name.
Another way to tell if they are not who they claim to be is if they don’t answer your direct questions. For example, if you send letters or emails to the person, you usually get one back, right? The key is what is in the ones you get back. Does it seem as if they have no idea what you were talking about in the ones to them? Do they ramble on about something completely unrelated to what you asked or off topic in other ways? If so, what is probably happening is the mail you are sending is going somewhere other than where the person lives. They are not actually reading any of the mail and this usually means they gave you the wrong information about them. If this is the case, you will want to lose them quick, before you lose any more of your valuable time.
Maybe things have been great and so far so good, there are no signs that anything is wrong. So you decide you want to take it to the next level. You would like to speak on the phone. The problem is they don’t want you to call them. They will claim they don’t speak English or they don’t have a phone, but in reality what is happening is you are not conversing with the person you think you are on the computer. If you are a guy, you may in fact think you are talking to a woman when in reality you are talking with some guy in Mexico. Or, for the women, you think you are talking to this attractive guy in Hawaii but in reality you are talking to this lady in Russia. On “paper” things can seem very different than they really are. If they show any signs of acting funny when you ask to talk to them on the phone, be wary and move on, as it is for the best to be safe than sorry.

They are not all bad and the people on them are probably wonderful people. It is just a few bad apples you need to look for, and now you know what exactly t look for, you should be safe and sound.
