Did you know that there are 54 million single people in the United States, and 40 million of them have tried online dating?
Do they think their marvelous personality is going to override their lies about their appearance and income?
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.
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! If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them. Before meeting them for the first time, leave their name, phone number, and meeting place with a friend. When meeting someone for the first time, and possibly the 2nd and 3rd date too, it will minimize potential danger if you are surrounded by people. You may be trapped and not free to leave if becoming uncomfortable.
Compromising your safety and/or life does not need to be the price to pay for a date. If any serious problem arises, they (and you) can be tracked down easier and faster. Being in their car gives them all of the control of where you are going and when you are returning home. When you start dating someone seriously, remove your profile from the site and ask them to do so as well.
