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.
Online dating presents an effective solution to a serious problem.
Browsing profiles isn’t nearly as time-consuming (or daunting) as mixing with people in a social context.
Don’t be surprised if the person either doesn’t respond or keeps leading you on until you decide to sign up and utilize their instant chat service by becoming a member.
Dating sites are big business and the market is so saturated that the competition to keep up is stiff.
Here are a couple of guided tips to follow when trying to spot fake profiles.
Scammers take advantage of people looking for romantic partners, often via dating websites, apps or social media by pretending to be prospective companions.
This is a common deceptive move and is focused on members with fetishes or plenty of money to spend on webcams and chat time.Scammers make quick use out of the exaggerated fake profiles in order to make money for the profile owner.This type of scammer is typically either an escort service or port site trying to woo members with gorgeous photos and wild propositions.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.If you want to think about dating as a numbers game (and apparently many people do), you could probably swipe left/right between 10 – 100 times in the span of time that it would take you to interact with one potential date in ‘real-life’.You would think these profiles would be blatantly obvious, but not always. Another type of scammer that utilizes fake profiles are identity theft predators.They convince members to chat with them outside of the dating service site in order to get you to install chat software or special toolbar.The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work.Many are just ‘fad’ applications that squeeze money from punters with no intention of matching you with a suitable partner. Most people probably wouldn’t be surprised to learn that it’s more common for people to lie in their online profile than be completely honest.Another theory is that dating sites want to gauge how many members are trying to collect on a 3 or 6 month guarantee.Members have to reply back to all inquiries or else most companies will not back their site guarantee. Some have one word answers and minimal information and others have exaggerated information with lots of interesting details.
