Dating Over 50? 8 Ways to Avoid Liars Online

If you’re dating over 50, don’t let a few bad apples stop you from finding love online.

dating over 50, online dating, liars onlineSingle women dating over 50 worry that all the men on online dating sites are liars. As a dating coach for women, I understand your concerns. So let me reassure you that from a statistical standpoint, this could not possibly be true; there are a lot of attractive, nice — and honest — guys on these sites. However, most midlife women have some degree of mistrust about online dating and are suspicious about how truthful men really are.

Younger singles are less concerned because they grew up immersed in technology and the Internet. They have been playing games online since they were little so their perspective is more relaxed and accepting. They know the reality of dating today includes technology and are less concerned about the possibility of liars than older people who are dating over 50 are.

So How Much Lying Is Really Going On?
A study conducted by two college communications professors, Catalina Toma of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Jeffrey Hancock of Cornell University, suggests that the risk for deception certainly exists. Their research, reported by the Huffington Post found 80% of the sample profiles from dating sites wandered from the truth. To be fair, they only tested 78 profiles, which doesn’t seem like a statically significant sample size, but regardless, we can infer that people are fudging some details on their profiles.
