The Internet is a massive environment, full of people from all different walks of life. And, while most people you meet online are real and legit, some are not. This is especially true in the lifestyle community, where fake swinger profiles run rampant. It is for this reason that it’s always important to practice online safety and a little bit of discernment. 

In this article, we’re addressing fake swinger profiles and how you can protect yourself from the people who run them. Then, we’re giving you four critical tips for spotting fake profiles so that you can avoid them completely. 

Fake Swinger Profiles are Common and Can be Tough to Spot

There’s a wide range of reasons why someone might make a fake swinger profile. Some people just aren’t confident enough in themselves to use their real identity or photos. Others do it for more nefarious reasons, like photo collecting or catfishing. Whatever the reason, it’s not very safe or smart to interact with these accounts, and they should be avoided entirely. Here are the easiest ways to spot them.

How to Spot Fake Swinger Profiles Online

  • Avoid Profiles without Pictures

A profile without a single photo is one of the most important red flags to watch out for. This is almost a guaranteed photo collector or troll. When a profile has no photos, you have no idea of the person you might be talking to. And, if they’re going to put in the effort to talk to people online, they should at least have the decency to share some photos. They don’t have to be completely loaded with professional pictures, but a few decent selfies will help a lot. 

  • If it Seems Too Good to be True, It’s Probably a Fake Swinger Profile

In the same arena as someone without a single photo is a profile with those that look too good to be true. Of course, there’s always the possibility of meeting a model or someone with professional photography skills. This is where your own discernment comes in. However, if everything about a couple (including their look) just seems too perfect and convenient, it probably is. You might be interacting with a fake swinger profile. 

  • Check for Verifications

In an effort to put an end to fake swinger profiles, many lifestyle websites have included a verifications feature. Verifications can typically be found on a swinger’s online profile. They often include “reviews” and verifications from other people who have already interacted with the couple in real life. Verifications are one of the best ways to guarantee you’re not interacting with a fake swinger profile. This is because it’s incredibly difficult to fake these, especially when those leaving verifications also seem like legit profiles. 

  • Watch for Refusal to Answer Questions or Send Photos

Even after making the decision to move chat with an online profile, it’s important to pay close attention to the conversation. Many people with fake swinger profiles have been playing the game for years, and are great at pulling the wool over people’s eyes. Watch your conversations. If you find that you’re interacting with someone who is asking all the questions (and not answering any themself) or refusing to send any photos (besides the ones on their public profile), it may be a fake swinger profile. 

These discussions should be full of give-and-take. Make sure that you’re never giving more than you want to.

Staying Vigilant and Safe Online Has Never Been More Important

You never truly know a troll’s motives, which is one reason you should always remain alert and aware online. While most people you come into contact with will probably be real and legit, there are always those outliers who are looking to take advantage. By paying close attention to these four tips and always trusting your gut instinct though, you can guarantee you’re safe and in the know.
