No more Deception in Matchmaking… ! March 15, 2007

A leading Chinese matchmaking portal (Baihe.com) will check age, marital status and other personal details of prospective cyber daters against an official database to prevent deception. The portal, Baihe.com will screen its eight million online daters from Sunday against an “ID authentication system”. The system was jointly developed by the website and the ministry of public security.  

“In the long run, we’ll arrange dates only for those who are proven to be telling the truth,” The CEO of the company Mr. Jason Tian said the move would enhance trust among online daters, improve credibility and prevent deception. “People tend to misrepresent themselves online and you never know if you are being told the truth,” said Beijing schoolteacher Sun Wei. In an Online Survey by China Computer World Research found that 53 percent online daters were cheated and other 32 percent felt the risk of getting misleaded by the prospective daters online. Moreover, the ID cards of online daters were very skeptical as there were no solid proofs of their authentication.
