Am I missing something

I am new to this thing... I have sent out a few messages to other members... but most of them are fake... they provide some email ID and then send junk via that.... can someone suggest how you know who are genuine members and who are fake....

Thanks in advance for any comments...

Like I've been told, you have to sift through the junk before you get to real people. I may not be your type of woman, but trust me there are real people on this site. Good luck with the hunt.

There's a few blogs on this site that address the same problem. You might want to search the blogs for ideas.
I've fallen for it too. Now I keep getting emails from non-people asking me to sign up for some stupid site.

You'll start to notice similarities in profiles. I searched for women in my area and found two completely unrelated women that in their photos, are sitting on the exact same ugly red couch. I figure the pics were taken from a brick and mortar dating business.

Stick with profiles that seem "real" to you. Does her pic look like she's a professional model? Does the photo look like it was taken by a photographer and not a cell phone, or a digital camera?
If they reply to your email, and they will, do they instantly give you an off-site email address to write to? That's a giveaway.
If they respond to your email asking to meet you, see if they looked at your profile. Check the total views to see if it's changed. Not one single fake on this site I've emailed ever looked at my profile.
You'll get the hang of it. There's real people here, I've even met some.
