i need someone to talk to
It is definitely not cool to be over 25 and have little or no money, which is why a lot of singles in the online dating game lie about how much they really earn. Research shows that your income can significantly affect your dating experience so this really matters a lot, especially for men. Scientific American also states that men claiming incomes over $250,000 got 151% more messages than men claiming to have incomes less than $50,000. Pretty sad, right? No wonder a lot of people go crazy on those digits! But if truth be told, people who are into online dating really are 20% poorer than the claim to be. So next time you come across an "I make over $200,000 a year" sentence in one's profile, be wary! That might just be another person whose best source of income is his or her imagination.
- Relationship Status
Yikes! This one is pretty scary! If you don't want to be entangled on a messy, love affair, you better make sure that your date's relationship i need someone to talk to status is not fake. According to an MSNBC survey, 30% of men who are using dating services online are actually married. These scum of the earth are probably just looking for some nice attention they aren't getting from home, so put your guard up. Keep in mind that you are here to find the love of your life, not become someone's dirty little secret. Other people lie about having been in a relationship or pretend to have just broken up even when they have never really been kissed since birth. This is probably because they want to project an image to their potential dates that they have "experience" and are actually mature enough to work out a relationship.
