Without doubt, this is a fast growing trend as we have less time to go out and relax – and also to meet someone new in this accelerated world.
With any online dating or social websites, there are risks, but do you know the reality of those risks?
Its important to be armed with the numbers so you don’t become a statistic. As you can see from the statistics, the percent of sex offenders who use online dating to meet people is huge!
Tao Ran, director of the country’s first Internet addiction treatment clinic under a military hospital in Beijing said that 40% of those addicted to the Internet suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. A live 128×128 grayscale picture of the state of the coffee pot was provided as the video feed. Internet sends approximately 204 million emails per minute and 70% of all the emails sent are spam.
2 billion electrons are required to produce a single email. ” Gangnam Style ” by PSY is still the most viewed videos of all time with more than 2,840,000,000 views. Approximately 9 Million adults in Britain and one-third of Italians have never used the internet. While there are treatment camps for internet addicts in China, a vast population of people has never used it till date. The majority of internet traffic is not generated by humans, but by bots and malware.
Some surveys in the USA state the average age of an online dater is 48 years, meanwhile other statistics show that nearly 50% of all online daters aged between 18-34 – I guess this latter one is much closer to the truth.32. People who greet others with ‘hi’ or ‘hello’ in their messages on online dating sites receive less response than those, who address them more politely. 70% of online daters say that eyes are the sexiest facial feature on profile pictures. Despite the misbelief, women are most likely to get nervous when speaking about a potential marriage in the next few years than men. Many of online dater women are only searching for a ‘friendship’-like relationship – at least for the first few months. Most online daters meet their potential partner after exchanging a few e-mail messages, pictures and telephone calls usually within a month. Women usually prefer to marry – or in general: to get into a relationship with – men, who are older than they are.
