CHICAGO - Many people will agree that scouring dating websites looking for love can be frustrating. “Online dating seems to offer the promise of unlimited opportunity for singles to meet. psychology professors released a study on Tuesday exposing that the dismal results are not worth that frustration.
The investigation also revealed that online profiles contain substantial embellishments.
“People lie about their height, financial success and also say that they are younger,” Stein stated. Online dating regulars tend to be unrealistic in their expectations.
When there are a lot of choices, people think of their matches as readily disposable.
After a couple of dates someone who frequently uses online sites is likely to dismiss a possible mate in favor of someone new from the bottomless pit of possibilities.
And it shows that there is no substitute for meeting face-to-face.
