Issues with online dating sites
A few years ago, OKCupid calculated that 96.25% of e Harmony’s profiles are inactive, using numbers provided by e Harmony themselves.
Match was only marginally better, coming in at 93.1% inactive.
While we’re on the topic of fake profiles, let’s talk about the rise in scams.
A recent British study found that, in just the United Kingdom alone, online dating scams clobber 230,000 people a year, with a total damage of billion per year.
This means that 19 out of 20 profiles on these sites are either past members who aren’t around anymore, or non-paying members who can’t respond.
OKCupid was acquired by Match in 2011, and that article has since been taken down (for obvious reasons).
What I uncovered were some harsh realities about online dating that no one ever talks about.
After the jump, some things you might not have known… Most of the member profiles you’ll find are inactive.
And don’t take it personally if most of the people you message never reply since they may be not even be real. There are some sketchy people out there, and the online dating sites can’t do much about them.
Using his background in screenwriting (i.e., writing ), he will adopt your personality and make sure your online persona is the Casanova your real self could never be.
(Hopefully, he’ll cut out the part where you’re unbelievably boring and socially inept, hence your need to hire him in the first place.) And once he’s set up a date, he’ll give you all the information you need on the woman “you’ve” been corresponding with. And don’t forget, she thinks you’re fluent in five different romance languages.
And this is exactly what happens on an online dating site.
You want to meet someone who’s a good match for you – someone you can truly connect with. But, the problem is, there are just too many damned dating profiles out there.
