Hi guys,i was just wondering what you think about online people are they sincere or fake?Do you think most of them are telling the truth like how they look,their jobs etc...or do you think they're just making up some stories.I would like to know what you think about this.Thanks in advance for your replies.

My impression is that they fake it out. A guy of 65 yrs sells himself as a 16 yr old girl or a 25 yr old boy simply to get the kicks. And at times you find yourself to be chatting with a male rather than a female or vice versa. If you want to have a serious relationship, don't go in for online stuff, most of them is fake. If you do get serious, ask the other person to speak to you on telephone or mobile to confirm the identity.

Yeah i know this things happens especially on chatrooms.I dont really care much about them when i was still single.My sister used to publish me on a dating site before even though i dont like it because i have a problem on trusting people i have never seen.i've heard some bad things about them.Ironically,i fell inlove with a man i have never seen in person but he was a friend of my sis.so that makes me feel at-ease and now we're married.

Quite a lot of them are fake unfortunately. The number of online lawyers and so called doctors is way above the average :-)

Thats right,so its nots really safe to trust on people you just meet on the internet especially when it involves money.Its better to meet them in person.Thanks for responding.

Sincere people and fake people can be found everywhere. Some on line people are phonies, and osme are sincere, just as they are off line.

I think its both. you will get people who are fake and real. I dont know why they lie for but who knows though. You just have to watch outand be careful who you talk to and dont believe in so much B.S.

well its very good discussion started by you its a matter which deserves our serious attention .usually there comes news in which we come to know that some one is cheated on internet,the only solution in my view is that you will have to be carefull while shearin ur ideas with any strenger because it may be dangerous for you.i have seen usually people doesnt give the real information on internet so one should be attentive to share.

Yeah heard of that too that some people got cheated on the net.Those people were too naive i guess,i dont usually chat on the net with strangers i only chat with my friends so im not worried being cheated or scammed.By the way,thanks for responding to my discussion.

I chose to believe they are all real people, its their projection of self perhaps that is not real, But whom do you fool if you project a different you in the net, well there are 101 reasons but for me whether fom east or west Perry am i, does it matter?

some are real but most of them are fake, the thing is, its difficult to distinguish which one is real which one is fake because both of them sound sincere...

Yes exactly.They all seem to be telling the truth thats why it is really important for us to be careful not to fall for the fakers.Thanks for responding.

Online people are real some of them just make up fantasies to make them sound better...You just have to basically do what you do in real life you have to feel your way threw...

I think that if you smart anyone can figure out everyone that they meet on the internet. Never just go meet anyone that you just met regardless. If you need to know that this is really the same person ask to see a webcam for proof. I have met out of a whole year of chatting 4 people that i still talk to in a whole year and they are great people!!

lots of people lie ! It is very difficult to recognize what is real and what is not ! Anybody can hide behind a screen and claim he's an other person ! Always pay attention to the people you chat with on the internet !

The internet is a funny place,we can't verify what anyone is telling us,so i believe we have to exercise caution in all our activities on the net,just like there honest people,i also believe there are fake people out there,so beware!

not all people online are the same. some are honest, while some are pretenders. i met my boyfriend online. he's 30. i am 28. we were honest from the very start. it was good that we started out as friends. now, we're deeply inlove and we're alread talking about getting married . i believe we should not be sarcastic about meeting people online. it's just that we should not let our guards down. don't expect too much and don't judge in an instant.

I try to be as honest as i can on the internet. I know that not all people do. I know of a certain person who I am not going to 'call out' who chats to people younger than himself and pretends to be their age. Lonlieness will cause people to do a lot of things. It makes me sad. Can't we all just be who we are? Why do we have to pretend? We shouldn't pretend just because the internet makes it easy to hide.
