Of all our online dating fears, falling for an imposter ranks the highest.

You check out someone’s dating profile. Their pics look great and they may be saying all the right things, but you still aren’t sure if they’re the real deal or not. So, you poke around for a while hoping your gut guides you.

However, your gut can only take you so far.

While I do believe in listening to your gut, you don’t have to solely rely on it. Great news! You no longer have to keep guessing. There are two new apps out to back you up, which I’ll tell you about in a sec.

Just between you and me…

Popular dating and matchmaking sites have definitely opened up the playing field. But, those sites still can’t guarantee that who you see in the pictures really are who they say they are.

Who’s to say that that amazing picture isn’t from 10 years ago? Or, how do you know they aren’t pulling one over on you when they say they’re earning 6 figures. For all you know, they still live in their mom’s basement. After all, you never really know a person until you get to know them, right? Whether you’re looking for lasting love or something more casual, it’s important that you know the truth about who you’re meeting.

Fortunately, with this new advanced technology gracing the scene, it empowers you to learn the truth about your date. No more wasting your precious time!

Here are the two dating apps set to take the obscurity out of online dating for a more translucent and exciting dating experience.

Stud or Dud – Growing in popularity, Stud or Dud is a free app that will reveal more information to you about the date you’re about to meet offline.

What’s their claim to fame? They insist they’ll separate the studs from the duds because after all…who wants to meet a dud? The best part about this app is that it’s free. See how it works at https://www.studordud.com/.

Aste – This app is like having your very own private investigator. For a tiny fee of $29.95, this app will check on your behalf for information about your online dates to verify that they are who they say they are. Check it out here: https://www.aste.io/

Statistics show that 1 in 3 people are using some form of online dating, so it’s definitely here to stay.
