Where are the questions about environment, economic conditions, and outside influences?(Example: Long-standing research shows that when couples encounter stress or unexpected demands on their energy, their satisfaction with their relationship declines, often leading to breakup or divorce.)Why don't these dating sites take critical happenings, variables and milestones into account when evaluating compatibility — money management, financial strain, losing a job, illness, death of a parent, moving, raising kids (not "do you want kids," but rather, asking questions about parenting style and actually raising kids)?Primal dating rituals and natural courtship don't include posting a profile and a few pictures, or swiping right to indicate interest. Old pictures, employment status, income, weight, age — over 80 percent of online daters don't tell the truth.In essence, you're starting a relationship based on dishonesty.2. You aren’t actually meeting the person, you're meeting their portrayal and estimation of the best parts of their personality.

Moreover, this study examined many online venues: virtual worlds, chat rooms, multiplayer games, and social networks, as well as many dating sites.
