Online topics for dating
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’.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.
Most people meet their significant others through their social circles or work/school functions. In the search for a potential date, more and more people are switching to less traditional methods. With the rise and rise of apps like Tinder (and the various copycat models) who could blame them.Maybe older people are just more interested in projecting their real self, rather than an imagined or ideal version.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 dishonesty was slightly less prevalent among the British sample, 44% did admit to lying in their online profile.In both the US and UK samples, dishonesty declined with age.
