Reasons for online dating
Men lie most about age, height, and income, while women lie most about weight, physical build, and age.
So, the guy who says he is 40 years old, 6’2, brown hair and blue eyes, and earns 100K per year, just might not be anything like that when you meet him.
They have already given you so much false information about them, there is virtually no way to find them.
Ladies, I understand that you are lonely and would like companionship, but you need to educate yourselves, and take precautions! As exciting as the attention may be, you are NOT in a race to meet someone. A lot of people post photos of themselves anywhere from 5-20 years ago! Also, use photos for your profile that you haven’t posted anywhere else on social media. Many men are listed on these sites in several states, and are playing games with numerous women. Continue using email as the form of correspondence between you and the person you are getting to know for longer than you think you should, before giving them your phone number.
Compromising your safety and/or life does not need to be the price to pay for a date. If you use your Facebook or Instagram profile photo, someone can easily do a Google photo search and find you on social media. You don’t want to have to change your number often if you start to get uncomfortable or harassed by this person.
These statistics are showing that since 10% of members are scammers and another 10% are some type of sex offender, your odds of ending up in a bad situation are already 20%.
Then add the 51% that are already spoken for, and your odds of meeting a normal, available person decrease greatly.
Aside from the issue of lying, lies a worse scenario.
