I’m thinking of joining a dating agency but I’m scared. Any advice?

Question by lisa6: I’m thinking of joining a dating agency but I’m scared. Any advice?
I could remember the old ‘lonely ad column’ in Britain which someone told me was for mainly rapists and murderers. I still see dating agencies in the same light but I’m also convinced that I’m wrong. Could you please advise me on the safest way to meet people safely or ways of checking that they are who they claim they are.

there are a lot of sites that are free and you are pretty much on your own. there are also sites that cost money but they go through a very rigorous interview process in order to pair up couples properly.
