Honestly is critical to successful online dating but the truth is one thing that has virtually ruined internet dating is the frequent lies you get from single at dating websites. I found this funny and had to share it. Evidently, according to credible sources, people lie most often about their annual incomes.
What People Lie About Most Often with Internet Dating
Ranking second on this entertaining list was the fact they people tend to increase their height on average by as much as 2 inches. No way, not us guys?!
According to the source, nearly 60% percent of women and over 50% percent of males also tend to lie about their weight on online dating sites.
Really to most of us we have almost come to expect this. We think that most people know that their online cupid will typically look a little different than they do online when we actually meet them in real life.
Perhaps you can relate to this scenario…
Here is how it all typically goes down. It’s Friday night and you have been talking with the new interest online all week. You’ve seen their pictures and checked numerous times to see if they have others in Google image search. Still nothing.
Singles Lie Often
Aargh…You are excited to see what they REALLY look like and estimate your odds about 60/40 that they will look better than the actual pictures they have online that you saw on their profile.
Most of the time the photo to are a bit dated and they look a bit older when you meet them. The other times you strike gold and have a more attractive date than what you bargained for? Your smiling ear-to-ear.
Keeping Your Dating Honest
Here are two ways to get an honest look at someone before you plan that actual meeting time.
1. Ask if they have a webcam and if you can Skype them to visit on cam. This is far and away the best way to see them. It’s also very reasonable to ask in our opinion. Most people looking for love online should be open to sharing what they look like upfront because they do after all want to make sure their date is going to be attractive to them.
2. Another great way to see how honest your online date is being about their height, weight, and overall looks is to ask to add them on Facebook.
This little trick will typically render 50 or so recent photos from their friend’s tags, including a very good look into what kinds of things they are into.
Another interesting phenomenon when it comes to online dating is how popular hookup sites have become in the U.S. Whether it’s older women and younger men dating sites or casual sex dating sites, this type of online dating has grown massively in recent years.
I also think the fact that cam sites have exploded in popularity has eroded away at internet dating. Just remember to steer clear on most random chat sites, as these can really and truly be dangerous.
