First, be aware of the warning signs. For example, if you're talking to someone online and

you're talking to online if you don't know them in real life; research before you start chatting.
Finally, trust your gut. If something feels off, it probably is

If you're worried about being catfished, you can do a few things to protect yourself.

  • First, make sure you're using a reputable dating site or app.
  • Second, don't give out too much personal information until you're sure the person you're talking to is who they say they are.
  • Third, keep your conversations on the platform where you met - don't move them to email or text messaging. Fourth, if possible, meet in person as soon as you can.
