Still, it was far from a smooth journey. Though, in that respect, I guess I do have eHarmony and Match to thank for Citajte online dating writing career. Armed with years of slow-churned cynicism, I took to the internet to see if others shared my experiences.
What I uncovered were some harsh realities about online dating that no one ever talks about.
After the jump, some things you might not have known…. Online dating sites love to boast about the millions of members they have. A few years ago, OKCupid calculated that Citajte online dating was only marginally better, coming in at OKCupid was acquired by Match inand that article has since been taken down for obvious reasons. Of course, putting something on the internet is kind of like catching herpes: And that would be wise… if not for the scads of other evidence that online Citajte online dating sites do in fact juice up their numbers.
To date, Match has been involved in a spate of lawsuits "Citajte online dating" disgruntled daters, alleging that the vast majority of their member profiles are inactive or outright fake.
One suit went as far as to accuse Match of employing shills to entice members to renew their subscriptions. These cases were all dismissed or droppedbut the most recent one in did produce disheartening results well, disheartening for online daters — the results were great for Match. This time, a federal judge threw out the case, on the grounds that Match makes perfectly clear in their terms of service that they do not screen member profiles, nor will they take any responsibility for doing so.
In other words, even if the allegations absolutely correct that most of their profiles are inactive or fake, Match is not obligated in any way to remove them. And hey, mad props to you for being such an exemplary case of human savvy. Still, you might want to pay attention to this storyof the woman who went on a few dates with a man she met on Match, only to end up getting stabbed multiple times by him when she tried to break it off.
Once again, Match got slapped with a lawsuit. And this time… whoathey actually did something about it.
