Stargazer Video Chat announced the re-launched of its companion free dating service, PopChat.com, as a simple free video chat site to eliminate lengthy profiles and unnecessary features, and to continue to provide a simple way for singles to meet each other in free video chat rooms. A recent survey conducted by Reuters found that a lot of online dating users are telling big lies when it comes to things like height, weight, income and physical characteristics. But what’s more interesting is the study found that lying about these things actually pays off – at least in the short run. The study found that men most often lied about their income and height while women lied most often about their height, age and weight. That’s not surprising seeing how men are often judged based upon their stature and bank account while women are scrutinized for the way they look.
What’s most interesting about the study is that those who tell these lies benefit by getting more activity on their online dating profile. For example, the study drilled down into the data and found that young guys who don’t make much money can still get plenty of dates because most women looking for 18 and 19 year-olds don’t expect them to have stellar careers, but 23 year-olds that don’t make much money, are destined to be dateless for quite some time. The lying is so prevalent among men 23 and older that there are four times as many six-figure earners in the online dating world than there is real life.
But does the lying pay off? Yes – at least temporarily. The data showed that the guys who lied about their income got a lot more online activity than their broke counterparts. The study also showed that men and women who lied about their physical characteristics such as their height and weight were able to get more dates as well. But relationship experts warn that starting out a relationship based on even white lies is dangerous. In fact, the average online dater is more likely to have a bad breakup or have their marriage end in divorce.
Andre Starr, a founder of Stargazer Video Chat, says, “This study shows the downside of lengthy online dating profiles because it’s easier for people to be untruthful about important aspects such as their income or physical characteristics. Our webcam chat site, gives people the opportunity to video chat with no lengthy profiles to fill out, no registration and no credit cards required. In other words, they don’t have to feel like they have to lie, they can just start chatting and see if there’s a connection.”
