Online dating expectations
is not so great at keeping its site free of shady dating profiles.A very high percentage of the dating profiles on are fake profiles of attractive, very young women.Plenty Of Fish is one of the best sites at keeping its pages and members, mostly free of bad or fake profiles.Part of the price of this fake profile prevention vigilance is sometimes Plenty Of Fish ends up deleting legit member profiles by accident.
Interestingly, in contrast there does not seem to be that expectation on hook-up sites (in my experience).
If you look just at the issue of 24/7 availability and the way our smartphones are like an extra appendage, we can see how technology has changed our expectations.
Research shows that 94% of online daters say they expect a response from their message within 24 hours.
As a former member of Match dating I can personally attest to this as every day I would get numerous winks and likes from very attractive girls, in their teens and twenties, interested in a 55 year old man??
The irony of this is not only is Match a premium/not free dating site, but it is actually fairly expensive. in the back of your mind when navigating dating websites. When people create their dating profile almost everyone puts their better-than-best foot forward, which is a nice way of saying lying. If a guy or girl has gained 15 or 25 pounds in the last two years, it's a pretty good bet their profile pictures are two years old or older.
