This is one of the ‘fake’ blogs, run by ‘experts’, that is nothing more than a method to promote VERY bad dating sites, and make money by doing it!  
Many of the blogs you can find online that have content about online dating, are run by the big dating sites to promote their site, or by people who make money by promoting dating sites who pay them.   The content they post is frequently total fantasy, and often untrue.

3 of the sites they suggest are safe, are actually very bad sites, filled with fraudFraud In law, fraud is intentional deception to secure unfair or unlawful gain (money or other assets), or to deprive a victim of a legal right. Fraud can violate civil law (e.g., a fraud victim may sue the fraud perpetrator to avoid the fraud or recover monetary compensation) or criminal law (e.g., a fraud perpetrator may be prosecuted and imprisoned by governmental authorities), or it may cause no loss of money, property, or legal right but still be an element of another civil or criminal wrong. The purpose of fraud may be monetary gain or other benefits, for example by obtaining a passport, travel document, or driver's license, or mortgage fraud, where the perpetrator may attempt to qualify for a mortgage by way of false statements. A fraud can also be a hoax, which is a distinct concept that involves deliberate deception without the intention of gain or of materially damaging or depriving a victim., Idateasia.com, chnlove.com, and charmingdate.com.    These sites pay affiliates well, because they make a lot of money from high fees charged to members, and a lot of those fees are a result of contact with fake profiles. 

Idateasia.com is in the news currently, due to a ‘call center’ associated with that site, in the province of Cebu, The Philippines, being raided by police and investigated for fraud, pornography, and prostitution.  The Chinese national owner, and a Pinoy manager are currently in custody. 

Employees of this ‘call center’ have given statements that they set up fake profiles on idateasia.com, and use fraud to get the men to spend money on the site, earning them commisions.
