Browsing profiles isn’t nearly as time-consuming (or daunting) as mixing with people in a social context.Statistics suggest that about 1 in 5 relationships begin online nowadays.

Before you throw caution to the wind and empty your wallet into the pockets of an online app with the reckless abandon of a love-struck teenager, there are a few things you should know. A study of over 1,000 online daters in the US and UK conducted by global research agency Opinion Matters founds some very interesting statistics.

Let’s be honest, the internet is really just a super elaborate and sophisticated farce designed to distract you from having your pockets picked by greasy conmen in cheap suits, right?

Not quite, but it is full of unscrupulous vendors looking to separate you from your money by whatever means possible (in other news, have you heard about the secret to getting killer abs in less than 7 minutes using this 1 weird trick…? Scams have been around as long as the internet (possibly even before…).

If you want to think about dating as a numbers game (and apparently many people do), you could probably swipe left/right between 10 – 100 times in the span of time that it would take you to interact with one potential date in ‘real-life’.

With the popularity of sites like e Harmony, match.com, OKcupid and literally thousands of similar others, the stigma of online dating has diminished considerably in the last decade.

A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their online dating profile.

Women apparently lied more than men, with the most common dishonesties being about looks.

Of course there are pitfalls and tripwires in every sphere of life, but this may be particularly true in the context of online dating.

There are literally hundreds (if not thousands) of online scams, and I’m not going to run through any in detail here, but do some research before you go giving your bank details to ‘Nigerian princes’ promising ‘fun moments’.

While dishonesty was slightly less prevalent among the British sample, 44% did admit to lying in their online profile.

In both the US and UK samples, dishonesty declined with age.

The US Association of Psychological Science found that reviewing multiple candidates causes people to be more judgmental, and inclined to dismiss a not-quite-perfect candidate than they otherwise would be in a face-to-face meeting. Many of the pictures of the women I have met had much younger pictures on their profile.
