Sex lies and dating
But with the advent of technology, "dating" doesn't exist anymore.In today’s technology-centric world — where everyone’s phone seems surgically attached to their hand — dating websites and apps are how modern singles find other singles.Normally, this would be a great thing, as technology makes things better.But when it comes to love, all technology does is leave a wake of emotional destruction, disconnection, and false positives.Primal dating rituals and natural courtship don't include posting a profile and a few pictures, or swiping right to indicate interest. Old pictures, employment status, income, weight, age — over 80 percent of online daters don't tell the truth.In essence, you're starting a relationship based on dishonesty.2. You aren’t actually meeting the person, you're meeting their portrayal and estimation of the best parts of their personality.But after connecting with thousands of women via my Facebook page and hearing their tales of missed dates, mixed messages, and misunderstood expectations, the horror stories seem to outnumber any purported success rate by a very wide margin. Don't we all hear how great the apps and sites are? You answer a few questions and then get to meet someone who is (supposedly) a great match.The dating site's algorithm auto-magically pairs you up with like-minded people who have similar interests, hobbies, life goals... And with mobile apps like Tinder, it’s all based on proximity and the “first sight”phenomenon.
So it's not the dating sites' fault for not being able to bring them up.
First, to match someone with a potential mate, these questionnaires must be answered honestly and accurately, and they aren't (more on that coming shortly).
And the questions these surveys ask are really about dating, not relationships, and there's a big difference between dating someone today and being compatible for the long term.
If this is all so fantastic, why do I receive hundreds of messages every week asking why he didn't call, why she lied about being married, why he pretended to love her and then disappeared, and much, much more?
The “Business” of Online Dating Success When it comes to measuring the success of online and mobile dating, it turns out that research studies and success stories are usually gathered via commissioned research through a third party and paid for by the dating site.And again, this is all assuming the respondents are telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But given how disconnected people are from the process of “courtship” on Tinder, it ends up a train wreck, as exemplified by the rising usage and views on Bye Felipe, the Instagram account that calls out the jerks from Tinder.
