• Everyone wants to be loved, but with the age of social media comes catfishing
  • A catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they’re not using Facebook or other social media to create false identities, particularly to pursue deceptive online romances.
  •  With more than 54 million single people in the US, at least half of those are looking for love online
  • Men most often lie about their age, height and income
  • Women most often lie about their weight, physical build, and age


Tips for connecting online:

  • Only accept friends who share mutual friends
  • Be cautious of sharing too many personal details too soon
  • Don’t talk about love too quickly
  • Check their online history
  • Be cautious of what they are telling you
  • Excuses for meeting you, talking on phone or Skyping
  • Check out their friends through social media
  • Do a Google search on them
  • Looks like a model or claims to be an actor—they may be, but be cautious and check it out
  • Ask for money
