Default Online dating sites for teens?

Do you think online dating sites for teens are safe? Can they be sketchy? I found the site meetme.com recently. And i think it looks pretty safe because you are required to put your age on your page, and your general area. And only people two years younger and two years older can see your page. Or atleast, you can only search people two years younger or older. You can certify that someone is real if they have a certain link that leads to their facebook. You can have special settings on your own profile too so you can restrict who can see you. Do you think it's safe?

No, that site is so sketchy. Looked at it before, not for dating purposes but seemed was full of fake profiles and older men....

Your choice to use it but that was my opinion on it. Do you need to use a dating site for real? I'm sure you don't....

Safe? It's never safe because people in disguise always find a way to look genuine, and normally it's something they're used to do, they fool teenagers very easily, expecially since teenagers are so naïve.
Of course, this doesn't mean you can't use them, it just means you have to be cautious and suspicious. Talk to them on skype with a webcam when you start to know them better, so you can actually see the person. If you ever meet that person, never go alone the first time, and so on.

It's dangerous but it doesn't mean you can't keep the danger at bay if you're smart.

No I don't 'need' to, but I think it's nice to keep my options open. But thanks for the advice.

I didn't meant that comment in a nasty way, just so you know. It is nice to keep options open but I think mainly people on the Internet will become more of a good friend before it progresses. I guess that site could be good to meet some new friends, who knows. Good luck

Online dating sites are never safe. Asclepius gave good advice.

How about your joining a local youth club and making friends there? At least you get to see people of your age and older. Far better than chancing your life on that chessboard of teen dating sites.

If I discovered my daughter fishing around on such, not that she would - I'd confiscate her laptop.

If you compare it to other dating sites online meetme is probably your best bet, but you should still take everything with a grain of salt. I personally used it to practice talking to girls because i was very shy at the time (about 2 years ago, I was a very different person), and did meet one girl off it actually in person;but that was long after I stopped using it and we text-ed occasionally. However, we went to the same college, and met in that college for coffee one night. but anyway, I find that most people on dating sites are either very insecure, looking for an ego boost, one night stands or just conversation.

your best bet is to try to expand your social life outside of the net and just let life happen. try joining teams, clubs, groups, getting a hobby, or just make more of an effort to make friends.

Datings sites in a nutshell: old pedo men using young girl avatars to get some boy on man action.








Pessimism isn't a bad lifestyle. If life screws you over, it's just another day. If life gives you a break, it tastes that much sweeter.

You're a teen, you don't need dating sites. Generally people on there are after one thing and one thing only. And as others have said, there are so many fake profiles of old men grooming young girls. I'd stay clear.
