Since diving into the online dating world over five years ago, I’ve had my share of great experiences.I’m a “glass half-full” kind of guy, so in my previous posts for Coffee Meets Bagel, I’ve tried to focus on the good that has come from my online experience.
And Tinder rated as a more popular choice for trolls over other dating sites like e Harmony because it is free to use.
A new study has found that women are trolling just as much as men on dating apps such as Tinder, according to new Australian research.
Academics from Federation University in Victoria have found that, perhaps surprisingly, female online behavior becomes similar to that of males when they interact online.
You swipe/click/poke/prod – they reciprocate, and then when it comes time to meet up, (s)he drops the bomb that they had no intention of actually meeting up – that “online dating is for losers and my BFF [presumably Jill] made me this profile for me as a joke.” Ways to avoid: Look out for too-much focus on “online” – if they keep harping on it, then it’s likely they have some self-security issues.
The irony of this type of flake is that they often claim that online dating is only for losers/weirdos – but then what does that make them – who claim to not be looking for something, but instead troll online dating sites for someone to talk to.
In two of the messages, the troll had included personal information about Vanessa and her family -- the former mailing addresses of her father and mother, as well as Vanessa's own current phone number.
