Dating online service truly
Before you throw caution to the wind and empty your wallet into the pockets of an online app with the reckless abandon of a love-struck teenager, there are a few things you should know. A study of over 1,000 online daters in the US and UK conducted by global research agency Opinion Matters founds some very interesting statistics.
A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their online dating profile.
Women apparently lied more than men, with the most common dishonesties being about looks.
Over 20% of women posted photos of their younger selves. Their most common lies revolved around their financial situation, specifically, about having a better job (financially) than they actually do.
Interestingly, more than 15% of adults say that they have used either mobile dating apps or an online dating site at least once in the past.
One of the big problems with online dating for women is that, although there are genuine relationship-seeking men on the sites, there are also plenty of guys on there simply looking for sex.
