It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work.
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.
Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
Of course there are pitfalls and tripwires in every sphere of life, but this may be particularly true in the context of online dating.
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’.
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.
Online dating does represent the convenience of being able to meet others that you possibly never would have otherwise, but women should be aware that they probably will receive rude/disgusting messages from horny guys, sexual propositions/requests, dick-pics, and a lot of creepy vibes.
