How to tell if an international dating site is reliable

October 31, 2019 at 12.35pm by in International Dating

These days there are many international dating websites on the market; hence, how to tell whether an international dating site is reliable or not is a frequent topic of discussion. Now I’d like to show you 10 ways to evaluate these dating sites effectively.

1. Does this international dating website have offices in different countries?

If an international dating platform actually has offices in various countries, then that’s a good sign because it means this dating site operates internationally.

Otherwise, the entire company can be based in one country only and may not have international candidates. Let me explain.

Usually, a legitimate international dating site should have at least one office in a western country where western men are looking for foreign brides (e.g. beautiful Slavic brides). Meanwhile, this dating website should also have at least one office in Europe where Slavic brides live. In this way, this company has access to both men and women joining their website.

You can find out a dating website’s team by looking at their “About Us” page where you will see the photos of their team members. If you can see their team members are actually Eastern European employees, then that’s good news which indicates they have an office in Eastern Europe.

2. Does this dating site have 24/7 live customer support?

If the answer is yes, that’s a good sign because it means they actually have a real team that’s ready to help their customers at all times. That shows their professionalism and dedication.

However, if the answer is no, that’s a red flag because offering 24/7 live customer support is a standard service in the international dating industry – members are from different countries (in different time zones), so of course, their team should be ready to answer questions any time.

3. Does this international dating website offer a money-back guarantee?

The best international dating site definitely offers its members a money-back guarantee because they actually care about their members. That means when there is an issue, their team will conduct a detailed investigation and you will receive a full refund.

Without a money-back guarantee, it doesn’t necessarily mean the dating site is a scam, but it does mean you will take a bigger risk.

4. Does this dating website comply with the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act (IMBRA) as well as the laws of the United States?

The International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 (IMBRA) requires background checks for all marriage visa sponsors and limits serial visa applications. It also specifies which rules an international dating site must obey. As an international dating website, they must comply with this regulation completely. A large number of western men looking for Slavic brides are from the United States. The international dating platform must comply with all laws of the United States of America.

If a company that offers international dating services doesn’t even declare that they comply with IMBRA, a new member should at least raise an eyebrow.

5. Does this dating platform respect your privacy?

Although Gary Vaynerchuk famously said, “People care about their privacy less and less these days” (as evidenced by a large number of people sharing their private information with social media platforms and Google), you still should protect your privacy on dating sites and dating apps. That means using a dating website is usually better than joining a dating app because nine times out of ten, a dating app needs to access your Facebook account which has lots of your private information. But a dating website generally doesn’t need your Facebook account.

A reputable international dating site would respect your privacy. It wouldn’t sell your email address to digital marketers who want to spam you.

If you are really concerned, you can create a specific email address for a dating site that you plan to join. In this way, your primary email address is still your secret.

6. Is this dating site the winner of any award in the industry?

Nowadays there are many awards in the dating industry. Dating is one of the most important industries on the Internet. In case you are curious, these are the three major industries online: 1) health and fitness; 2) dating and relationships; 3) money and business (because these things significantly influence people’s happiness).

Obviously, dating is a significant industry on the Web; therefore, every year there are many awards that are given to outstanding dating websites.

7. How often do they update their blog?

Usually, a reliable international dating site updates their blog quite frequently because they would like to give their members more value regularly. Members can read useful articles that offer dating advice.

But if a dating site doesn’t care, then they probably wouldn’t update their blog frequently – why would they spend time and energy doing something like that if they don’t even care?

8. Does this dating website offer international tours?

If a dating site offers international tours, that means their male members can visit Eastern Europe to meet their ladies in person with the help of the website. This is very important because if you are looking for a wife, you certainly want to meet her before you marry her, right?

An excellent international dating website should offer international tours. That can help western men to visit Eastern Europe where they can meet beautiful Eastern European women to have real dates. This comprehensive service is handy and convenient.

By contrast, when a dating site doesn’t offer international tours, then that’s purely online dating without any offline dating opportunities. Hence, you may want to think twice before joining such a website.

Ideally, you should combine URL with IRL when it comes to dating. In this way, you will maximize your chance of meeting someone suitable.

9. Is this website’s English reasonably good?

No, we aren’t looking for perfection because we know perfection is a joke. But we should have some common sense: If an international dating site doesn’t even invest in good writing. Consequently, I don’t know what they want to invest in. The English version of their platform is one of the most important aspects in their business.

Clearly, an international dating website with self-respect wouldn’t have a lot of grammar and spelling mistakes on their web-pages.

In contrast, when you see “evidences of true love” and “3 advices for western men looking for foreign brides”, you know maybe the evidence isn’t real & the advice isn’t correct.

10. Does the website only show you specific women’s photos or do they also have ordinary women’s photos?

It is important to see the profiles of the ladies with realistic phots. Have you ever noticed extremely photoshopped photos and the difference between a video of this very lady? Make sure that photos are natural and without lots of photoshop. When a woman has ordinary selfies combined with professional photoshoots it gives you confidence. You will not have lots of wrong expectations.

Now you are aware of 10 ways to assess the quality of an international dating site. Hopefully, you will make full use of these strategies and find your ideal bride soon.
