Dating around online
It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work. 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.
According to research conducted at Michigan State University, relationships that start out online are 28% more likely to break down in their first year than relationships where the couples first met face-to-face. Couples who met online are nearly three times as likely to get divorced as couples that met face-to-face. While the overwhelming majority of romantic relationships still begin offline, around 5% of Americans who are currently in either a committed relationship or marriage indicate that they met their significant other online.
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.More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the tactic was also employed by nearly a third of women.While dishonesty was slightly less prevalent among the British sample, 44% did admit to lying in their online profile.It does matter how old the photo is..not about the appearance, its the fact they lied and if you have lied about one thing what else have you lied about .that's the line of questioning this this type of action causes.
