Online dating has become one of the most popular ways of meeting new people nowadays. As fun and convenient as it may seem it does not take away the fact that when you choose to become one with the online dating community you are basically opening yourself to strangers that essential “live” on the internet.
Many claim that they use dating sites to find love and long term partners but according to the research done by Kaspersky Lab that might not be the case. In South Africa 31% of the population use online dating sites and apps such as Tinder, Bumble and OKCupid. Research has revealed that people searching for love on these sites is just a minority as over 50% are using dating sites and apps for fun and 19% of the people said they are just looking for sex.
