It appears to be the most popular way of finding your “match” these days. You are bored and want to meet a man, but don’t know where to meet one, so you sign up with an online dating service.
You post your photo, write a paragraph or more about yourself, and/or complete their questionnaire.
Men lie most about age, height, and income, while women lie most about weight, physical build, and age.
So, the guy who says he is 40 years old, 6’2, brown hair and blue eyes, and earns 100K per year, just might not be anything like that when you meet him.
The internet has become a place men use to seek women, teenagers and children, to take advantage of.
Sadly, the internet is the playground that predators use to lure women, for the purpose of performing scams, abductions, rapes, and murders.
These statistics are showing that since 10% of members are scammers and another 10% are some type of sex offender, your odds of ending up in a bad situation are already 20%.
Then add the 51% that are already spoken for, and your odds of meeting a normal, available person decrease greatly.
Do they think their marvelous personality is going to override their lies about their appearance and income?There are many websites available for this purpose.Below are some disturbing statistics to be aware of if you are a “woman seeking men”, on an online dating site.Did you know that there are 54 million single people in the United States, and 40 million of them have tried online dating?The worldwide online dating industry grosses over billion dollars per year, making it a bigger industry than porn.If they are truly interested in you, and don’t have commitment issues, they should have no problem doing this.This article was not written for the purpose of scaring anyone, but was written to inform you of the realities of online dating that the promoters of the dating sites are not telling you.Ladies, I understand that you are lonely and would like companionship, but you need to educate yourselves, and take precautions! As exciting as the attention may be, you are NOT in a race to meet someone. A lot of people post photos of themselves anywhere from 5-20 years ago! If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them. Before meeting them for the first time, leave their name, phone number, and meeting place with a friend. When meeting someone for the first time, and possibly the 2nd and 3rd date too, it will minimize potential danger if you are surrounded by people. You may be trapped and not free to leave if becoming uncomfortable.Compromising your safety and/or life does not need to be the price to pay for a date. If any serious problem arises, they (and you) can be tracked down easier and faster. Being in their car gives them all of the control of where you are going and when you are returning home. When you start dating someone seriously, remove your profile from the site and ask them to do so as well.Other times, they don’t disappear, but wind up marrying you, so they can continue to take everything they can from you, often ruining your credit, bank account, and life!Don’t think that you are the only one they are married to while they are doing this either!
