Online dating good idea
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.Of course, putting something on the internet is kind of like catching herpes: once it’s there, it goes away. Now, given that OKCupid was talking some serious shit about their competitors, you’re probably thinking that article should be taken with a grain of salt. if not for the scads of other evidence that online dating sites do in fact juice up their numbers.To date, Match has been involved in a spate of lawsuits by disgruntled daters, alleging that the vast majority of their member profiles are inactive or outright fake.One suit went as far as to accuse Match of employing shills to entice members to renew their subscriptions.These cases were all dismissed or dropped, but the most recent one in 2011 did produce disheartening results (well, disheartening for online daters – the results were great for Match).Online dating sites love to boast about the millions of members they have.
And your date will never know the difference (hopefully).
You may believe it’s better to have too many than too few choices, but that’s not the case when it comes to dating.
