Three some dating

As with anything in life, there can be some risks with online dating, but there can also be a lot of rewards — love being one of them.

We’ve gathered several statistics about the dangers of online dating (not to worry you but to inform you) as well as five ways you can protect yourself from potential predators.

These are terrifying numbers, but once again, the tips in this article are here to help protect you and your loved ones and lower that number to zero.

About 51% of online daters are already in a long-term commitment and 11% are already married. It’s OK to ask questions and do some research if you’re worried someone isn’t being 100% honest with you.

We’re back to Phacutal’s research, which cites that 33% of women have sex on the first date they met with someone online, but that’s not really the bad news (people can do whatever they want with their bodies).

Age, height, weight, and income are just some of the characteristics people beef up to make themselves look and sound more attractive.

Hand in hand with the statistic above is the fact that 62% of people lie about their current relationship status, according to the lifestyle blog The Bittersweet Life.

The bad news comes with the second part of that stat — four out of five don’t use protection.

It’s important to stay safe both online and offline!
