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.
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.
Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
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.
More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the tactic was also employed by nearly a third of women.
This is the most wonderful thing i have ever experienced.Browsing profiles isn’t nearly as time-consuming (or daunting) as mixing with people in a social context.Statistics suggest that about 1 in 5 relationships begin online nowadays.More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.
According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.The US Association of Psychological Science found that reviewing multiple candidates causes people to be more judgmental, and inclined to dismiss a not-quite-perfect candidate than they otherwise would be in a face-to-face meeting. Many of the pictures of the women I have met had much younger pictures on their profile.
