Although, the question if online dating really does what it promises is still relevant, the statistics proves that it remains one of the most effective tools in coupling people. So, let’s take a look at some new online dating data. Do you know that:
- There are no gender differences when it comes to profile exaggerating. Both men and women tend to lie about their age, financial status, living conditions and, of course, their weight. But don’t worry it happens no more frequent than in a real life where we also may face the same problems (except for the dramatic weight exaggerating of course).
- The online dating market has boosted from a $900 million in 2007 to a $1.9 billion in 2012.
- Couples who found each other online usually get married in about 18 month after their first meeting in person. And couple who met offline spend together for about 40 months before wearing wedding rings.
- Since 2006, more than 16% of married couples have met by using one of inline dating services.
Thus, before rejecting one more offer from someone met online, just think that you are losing a wonderful possibility to meet a faithful partner or a good friend who’ll be glad to share his/her life with you. Just be cautious and listen to your heart. Good luck!
