Truth about online dating sites feeds
Clearly the older generations understand that it's better to be accepted for who you are rather than who you wish you were.
Fifty-three percent of American people surveyed said they lied in their online dating profiles.
In today’s technology-centric world — where everyone’s phone seems surgically attached to their hand — dating websites and apps are how modern singles find other singles.
Normally, this would be a great thing, as technology makes things better.
Women lie more than men by nearly 10 percentage points! Perhaps they assume their personalities will magically make up for the fact they do not look anything like the picture that was posted online. Although fewer men lie than women, their top lie is about having a job that is better than the one they've actually got.
Probably because over 20 percent of women post old pictures of themselves when they were younger and often thinner. A man could easily swindle a woman into a date, or even a relationship, before the woman discovers he's not a prince but a pauper.
What's needed to evaluate online dating success is information from a source that doesn't have a vested interest in the outcome, like the recent study from the Association for Psychological Science which discusses the notion that, although people are using online dating sites, the way people actually found spouses over the last several years remains largely unchanged.
