Then, after you give them your heart, they ask you for a little help financially.
Studies are also show that women are having sex sooner than later, and are not being safe about that either. Lying about who you are is no good way to start a relationship.
With statistics like these, online dating appears scary! You are only asking for trouble if you mislead men, by having an overly sexy name they are associating you with, such as bustybabe69, or hot4u2nitexxx. When they find out you have lied, they may be furious, which gives you a bad situation to deal with. Ask for as many recent photos of them as you can, and share yours too.
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.
If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them.
Another option is choosing an app that you can text from instead of giving out your main phone number right away. Don’t have this “stranger” pick you up in their car.
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.
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! Also, use photos for your profile that you haven’t posted anywhere else on social media. Many men are listed on these sites in several states, and are playing games with numerous women. Continue using email as the form of correspondence between you and the person you are getting to know for longer than you think you should, before giving them your phone number.
Compromising your safety and/or life does not need to be the price to pay for a date. If you use your Facebook or Instagram profile photo, someone can easily do a Google photo search and find you on social media. You don’t want to have to change your number often if you start to get uncomfortable or harassed by this person.
As awesome as that is, what happens when something goes wrong, and they aren’t your match at all?
