How Many Of Us Lie In Dating Profiles?

Do you think it’s common to lie in dating profiles? Well, the latest research has confirmed the exact percentage of people who input one, two or three false details in their profiles. The aim is to make themselves look better in the online dating world than in real life.

Are You Part Of The Percentage Who Lie In Dating Profiles?

Based on a research, 62% of online daters lie in dating profiles. Here are some of their findings. The percentages were based on the total number of participants:

  • 54% used fake photos
  • 59% lied about their age
  • 35% lied about their marital status
  • 29% claimed a different job than the one they had in real life
  • 23% were not truthful about their relationship expectations
  • 16% lied about their place of work
  • 14% were not truthful about their sexual habits
  • 13% lied about their financial status

What’s more interesting is that the participants themselves were put off by fake data. One in five respondents said that fake photos were unacceptable. On the other hand, one in ten respondents were turned off by fake relationship expectations as well as inaccurate relationship statuses. read more

Research Says This Is The Ultimate Aphrodisiac During Dates

When we think of the ultimate aphrodisiac, we think of food items like oysters or chocolate. We may even think of wine. However, did you know that on first dates, or on every date you go on, the ultimate aphrodisiac is not what you eat or drink. Rather, it’s what you do.

Speed Dating Studies Reveal What The Ultimate Aphrodisiac Is

A study entitled “Selective Versus Unselective Romantic Desire” discovered something very interesting. During the research, it was observed that a unique desire was reciprocated with the same unique desire.

To simplify the explanation, the study was done through speed dating. Researchers were able to see that a participant who exhibited a genuine interest on their date was able to prompt the same interested response. You can read more about the study here.

Another study published in Science Direct seemed to back this result up. You can access the full text of the study here. One of the key findings of this research was that females consider mindfulness as an attractive quality in a man.

What To Do About It

We have always done our best to get that second date from a lady we like. We don’t always have the best luck but this piece of information can help better our odds.

The next time you go on a date, you have to make sure that you do the following:

  • Listen actively
  • Respond appropriately
  • Maintain eye contact

All these indicate that you are genuinely interested. Based on the two researches, the lady you’re dating will reciprocate with the same level of interest as you’re projecting. She will likely find you attractive and interesting as well.

You can’t fake it either, in case you wanted to know. Attention is the ultimate aphrodisiac when it is genuinely given or when it is not forced. Forced attention will likely make your date more uncomfortable rather than attracted to you.

You can’t argue with science. Try paying attention on your next date and see what happens. For more dating tips and relationship advice check out the rest of our posts on our blog.

Get Over A Heartbreak Using The Domino Technique

To get over a heartbreak is not always easy.  Sometimes it’s really challenging for most of us. If the wound is fresh, we’re going to need time to heal and rest. The time it will take for us to do so varies. Some can do it in a span of one week, but there are those who reach up to a year (or more) to heal. Is there any way to get over a heartbreak faster?

The Domino Technique Will Help You Get Over A Heartbreak Quicker

There may just be a way for you to quicken the process of healing. Start using the domino technique. It’s a technique that makes you do a series of actions, small ones, that lead you to accomplish more smaller actions.

It’s called the domino technique because the concept is much like pushing one standing domino, knocking over the other dominoes in front of it. It can also be linked to a ripple effect or a butterfly effect – one small action triggers others.

The explanation behind how the effect works is simple and it’s even practiced in the military. The first thing that superiors will check in the morning, during training, is if the bed of a soldier is perfectly made up. This small task has to be done to condition the mind. When a soldier checks this task off, he or she would have earned the first victory of the day. Most likely, the soldier will be encouraged to work more for accomplish more victories.

How To Start Your Process

The idea is to start with the small accomplishment to get you motivated to do another. What you can do is list down three things you have to do every morning. It has to include a form of minimal exercise. For example:

  • Make the bed
  • Cook and eat a healthy breakfast
  • Do 10 push-ups

Of course, you don’t have to follow the list above. As long as you get the idea of what the domino technique is about, you can put anything on your list. Just make sure that it includes an exercise that you can do with ease. This should be included so that your mind is conditioned to a form of discipline.

This entire process can help you get over a heartbreak quicker because it allows you to focus on yourself and on minor tasks that could produce bigger victories. It conditions your mind to deal with the pain or sadness in a healthier way. You become more productive and you will feel like you’re slowly gaining back control over your life.
