Internet dating percentage

The virtual world can be fun indeed, but it has clear limitations -- the romantic relationships you make online must be brought into the real world in order to be fully rewarding.

Emmanuel Macron’s 32-percentage-point victory in France’s presidential election runoff may end up being touted as a triumph for French pollsters, who consistently gave him a huge advantage. The polls leading up to the contest between the centrist Macron and his far-right opponent were the least predictive in French history, underestimating Macron’s support, rather than Marine Le Pen’s, to the surprise of some. The average poll conducted in the final two weeks of the campaign gave Macron a far smaller lead (22 percentage points) than he ended up winning by (32 points), for a 10-point miss.

More than 40 percent of men try this tactic, confessing they wanted to make their job sound more prestigious.

But wait, one third of women do this too, saying they wanted to make their job sound more glamorous. Americans lie more than Britons, by 9 percentage points.

The results uncovered a shameful excess of dishonesty from people purportedly looking to find their one true match.

It's as if some online daters are not hoping to have a romantic evening but rather are preparing to do battle by jousting with their noses. Do they really think that when they finally encounter their date in person, that it won't be immediately obvious that they are two cup sizes smaller, two inches shorter and 20 pounds heavier than they claimed online?

Clearly the older generations understand that it's better to be accepted for who you are rather than who you wish you were.

The Internet allows us the freedom to represent ourselves in a way we wish people would see us or the way we wish we could actually be.

Out of this environment new businesses and new industries will be born.
