Dating is too difficult
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.For example, when you search for a film, we use your search information and location to show the most relevant cinemas near you.We also use this information to show you ads for similar films you may like in the future.According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.Online dating services are now the second most popular way to meet a partner.
Drive yourself to the date (your date doesn’t need to know where you live), keep an eye on your drink/food (…), pay half of the bill (you don’t need your date having expectations of repayment).
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 most people would agree that on average men are more eager for sex than women, it seems that many men make the assumption that if a woman has an online dating presence, she’s interested in sleeping with relative strangers.
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 were about their financial situation, specifically about having a better job (financially) than they actually do.
