Anyone know of a dating site

Sometimes our mind can trick us into thinking we've met the perfect match when in fact we are being conned by a scam-artist.” "Don’t be afraid to research someone you meet online.Use Google Images to check whether the photos they are using belong to someone else and check social media sites to ensure they really exist.

Then, the very day after my membership expired, lo and behold, I'd get a notice that I had an email from someone.I fell for it the first time, paid again, then found that it was the site, with some drivel they'd sent. That said, I like POF's forums the best (due to the participants, and the moderators). I've met nice people here and in other places, but no mate yet, so I keep looking everywhere.I have a free profile on but it seems like 99% of the people don't use their profile and since I made my profile a month back, I hadn't got a message.This leads me to believe hardly anyone in my area uses paid dating sites.But despite the potential risks, two experts in the field say there is no need to shy away from online dating as long as precautions are taken.

Nick Tsinonis, co-founder of Scamalytics, which creates software designed to prevent scammers from targeting people on online dating sites, offered a range of advice as to how to stay safe while interacting with a prospective date online.

You’re still inviting a stranger into your home." “Online dating can be a great way to meet people you would never had chance to meet otherwise, but there are nasty people in the world, and online dating is just one of many ways you may come across those nasty people.

"Always keep your wits about you, and if you ever feel uncomfortable you should simply leave.

To my knowledge, POF here is the only site that really lets you use it for free, and that's the reason I stay.

The other ones claim "free", but that's only to post your profile and look at the other ones.

SO my question is, what is the best free dating sites out there?
