Dating service poetry
More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.According to the Pew Research Center, the overwhelming majority of Americans suggest that online dating is a good way to meet people.Browsing profiles isn’t nearly as time-consuming (or daunting) as mixing with people in a social context.
It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
The problem with a lot of online dating applications is that they don’t really work.
Over 20% of women posted photos of their younger selves. Their most common lies revolved around their financial situation, specifically, about having a better job (financially) than they actually do.
More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the tactic was also employed by nearly a third of women.
Of course there are pitfalls and tripwires in every sphere of life, but this may be particularly true in the context of online dating.
