Single individuals cannot escape the pressures of marriage and family. For women, it could be overwhelming. Women, more often than men, feel that she should be married with children by a certain age. When she is not, society views her as an “old maid.” Yet, her counterpart is a “playa.” This double standard plays in many women’s psyche. This simple notion of being an old maid forces many women to obsess about marriage.
With an obsession to find a man, get married, and have a baby, many women are increasingly turning to online dating. It is steadily holding to the top choice for finding love. Ads suggest that it is convenient, instant, and results in marriage.
Although online dating seems to be a leading choice, there are many factors and red flags to consider. Statistics show that there are more men dating online than women. So, what are things that women should watch out for?
Both men and women fabricate online dating profiles. They choose a catchy headline, the best photo, and a killer bio. Why do women lie in their profile? They are trying to find a man. Face it; the catchy profiles get the more views. This is what online dating is all about, responses.
When a man chooses her “slamming” profile, what is she most likely to lie about? The top three things are her weight, build, and photo. These lies are fine until the first offline meeting. What are factors to cause these lies? Here are some thoughts:
- Weight. Many women obsess with weight, because society (especially Hollywood) places too much emphasis on looks and size. This causes most women to decrease her weight range by ten pounds or more.
- Build. In most online dating profiles, more women tend to select the “slender” or “athletic” body types. In reality, they are generally “a few extra pounds.”
- Photo. Women, more than men, are more likely to use an outdated photo in her profile.
Well, lying in an online dating profile is part of the game. There has to be a hook to attract a potential date. However, do not tinker the profile details too much. If the relationship goes offline, it would be difficult to explain the extra pounds, unshapely body, and older look.
