Findsomeone online dating
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.
While most people would agree that on average men are more eager for sex than women, it seems that many men make the assumption that if a woman has an online dating presence, she’s interested in sleeping with relative strangers.
There are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of online scams, and I’m not going to run through any in detail here, but do some research before you go giving your bank details to ‘Nigerian princes’ promising ‘fun moments’.
Of course, there are plenty more do’s and do not’s of online dating, but I guess the most important thing here is to use your common sense. You don’t necessarily have to develop a ‘trust no-one and sleep with one eye open’ approach to online dating, but it is probably worthwhile to have a healthy degree of skepticism in general.
Never mind the fact that more than one-third of all people who use online dating sites have never actually gone on a date with someone they met online, those that somehow do manage to find someone else they are willing to marry who is willing to marry them (a vanishingly tiny subset of online daters) face an uphill battle.
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.
