And you neglected to mention that women lie about their age quite often, especially those over 40. I don't know if the relationships last, or why they don't. I go on a LOT of first dates and typically don have second dates... It detracts from your image when you let people advertise in the comments sections.
Never mind the fact that more than one-third of all people who use online dating sites have never actually gone on a date with someone they met online, those that somehow do manage to find someone else they are willing to marry AND who is willing to marry them (a vanishingly tiny subset of online daters) face an uphill battle.Maybe older people are just more interested in projecting their real self, rather than an imagined or ideal version.One of the big problems with online dating for women is that, although there are genuine relationship-seeking men on the sites, there are also plenty of guys on there simply looking for sex.While dishonesty was slightly less prevalent among the British sample, 44% did admit to lying in their online profile.In both the US and UK samples, dishonesty declined with age.
