When we first studied online dating habits in 2005, most Americans had little exposure to online dating or to the people who used it, and they tended to view it as a subpar way of meeting people.
Today, nearly half of the public knows someone who uses online dating or who has met a spouse or partner via online dating – and attitudes toward online dating have grown progressively more positive.
One-in-five online daters have asked someone else to help them with their profile.
Many online daters enlist their friends in an effort to put their best digital foot forward.
Even many review sites are tainted with fake reviews making it almost impossible for somedbody to detect a safe site from a scam.
We attempt to analyse the website information and provide a trust guide that will help you determine the risk rating of the website.
That is a substantial increase from the 43% of online daters who had actually progressed to the date stage when we first asked this question in 2005.
