Where love is borderless

A March 10 survey conducted by CharmDate, an online dating website that helps foreigners meet Russian and Ukrainian women, reveals that people who call online dating a scam may be frustrated due to rejections and their lack of success at scoring dates.

Tens of thousands of messages are exchanged on CharmDate and other online dating sites every single day. Statistics show that about 59 million people have resorted to online dating at least once, and that number is constantly growing.

But it does not change the fact that many other millions of people still consider online dating a scam, and think that all single Russian women looking for foreigners online are scammers.

CharmDate has sent one of its customer service ambassadors to visit Ukraine and interview the local ladies. The questions were as follows: Why do so many Ukrainian ladies treat online dating as their primary source to find love? Why do so many people still consider online dating a scam or fraud? And how do you ensure safety while browsing Russian dating sites?

Firstly, CharmDate’s customer service ambassador found Anastasia, a 22-year-old college student at one of Ukraine’s best universities, for a small interview. Anastasia said that she has been online dating for years, and her experience has been mostly good. The Ukrainian girl also admitted that she is a long-time member of Charmdate.com.

Anastasia said that she had better time in online dating than in traditional dating, which she had given up entirely years ago. Most of her female friends also have dating profiles online, and many of them found their life partners online.

Another girl, Natasha, 28, met the customer service ambassador in a cafe in downtown of Kiev. Natasha said she has been called a scammer on online dating sites many times. In many cases, she was called “SCAM” after rejecting male suitors and turning down their proposals to go on a date.

“Just because you had no luck on CharmDate or any other online dating site does not mean that it’s a scam,” Natasha said. “If virtual dating doesn’t work for you, maybe the problem is in how you approach it.”

Although online dating is considered safe, there are certain precautions every user should take in order to minimize the risk of becoming a victim of scam. The most common mistake users make is giving away their personal information, including their address and even credit card info, too soon.

CharmDate has gone the extra mile to ensure that the platform is scam free and user friendly. This has been done by installing a premium system that verifies users and rules out the possibility of fake profiles.

The problem of fake profiles on online dating sites is not new, as it creates a perfect environment for fraudsters to carry out their scams. On most websites, any user can pretend to be anyone else, and many scammers have taken advantage of it by creating profiles of beautiful Russian women to steal money from the users.

With CharmDate, however, it is nearly impossible to carry out scams due to the site’s advanced security and verification systems. Charmdate.com has no tolerance for scammers and other individuals who harm other users and make it impossible to truly enjoy the experience of online dating.

More often than not, users who accuse online dating sites of scam either don’t fully understand the meaning of the word “scam,” or try to justify the rejections by blaming someone else for their lack of luck.

The third Ukrainian woman CharmDate’s customer service ambassador interviewed was Olga, a 31-year-old manager from Kiev. She revealed what online dating really is despite many people believing that it is all a big scam.

“Most of my friends of all ages and all professions go online to find dates, and this makes perfect sense,” Olga said. “After all, you have plenty of time to chat with the person before escalating things and going on a first date. With the traditional dating, people have to go on those awkward first dates, and sit there to figure out their dates.”

Olga explained that even though scam is common, an online dating user can still easily spot it by simply taking a look at the profile photos and bio. “Once you’ve browsed through hundreds of people on online dating sites, and chatted with a handful of them, you start seeing a pattern: perfect people don’t exist. We all have our own flaws, and online dating liberates us. It makes us feel loved at times when we need it most. That’s the beauty of it.”
