Therefore, we should not be surprised by the expensive online dating services. Only 10 years ago, most match-making websites were free to use. Others charged only about $10 per month.
But the initial low fees are a logical business move. The sites needed to first promote and attract people in order to offer efficient services. In addition, fees are something like a guarantee that the user will come back to the site.
We all go through the “single” phase
In the past, people were not willing to share the fact that they have met their partner online. But today dating sites are becoming more and more popular, especially among the people whose age is 50+. They make up over 15% of the web daters. This new tendency among people who are over 50 is fast developing. Most of them are either divorced, widows or single. Moreover, it was discovered that every third of them has never tied the knot.

Not always successful
People, who have met online, often get disappointed when they meet in the real life. You cannot truly know a person from an online dating website.
Even though, these services use sophisticated algorithms to find you a perfect match, they often fail. The matching technologies and methods have improved compared to previous years. However, they can are nowhere near perfection. The users of online dating websites do various tests that analyze things like their character, emotional state and self-perception in order to find a better match.
Dating websites continue to develop match-making tools that can improve the quality of the results.
Not everyone is honest
More than 50% of the users of dating sites do not provide true information when there are making their profiles. In addition, it was found that certain nationalities of daters lie more than others.
However, the online dating industry cannot make its users to tell the truth. The bad thing is that these fake profiles make fake match suggestions. However, daters will eventually learn about the lies when they meet the person.
Interestingly, it was also discovered that those members who lie in their profiles are usually very aware of their pros and cons. They only lie to please other people. Moreover, most of the dating sites users lie more or less.
