Reckless Single Women

Every third blind date takes place at home

LOS ANGELES, 14. November 2013 – Singles in the US like to live dangerously, women above all. This was proved by a recent survey of 14,489 online dating site users in the USA and Europe: a whopping 32% of all US users stated that their last blind date took place in a private setting. Furthermore, the majority of single women surveyed arranged for their first meeting with an online acquaintance to be in their own home.

The main rule of thumb when it comes to online dating is: choose a public place for your first date! However, most single people do not seem to take this advice too seriously. The great majority of those looking for a partner online still take the safe route and arrange for the first date to be in a café, bar, restaurant (58%) or another public place. Surprisingly, though, almost a third of American singles are willing to take the risk and meet their new online acquaintance in private.

Moreover, most single women are so bold as to immediately invite their blind date to their home. "Apart from the danger that can arise from such a situation, every woman should be aware that this can also become awkward. What should she do if she doesn't like her new suitor?" says Pamela Moucha of datingsitesreviewed.com.

American women are reckless

If you compare the willingness of American women to take risks on blind dates with the dating hot-spots in Europe, women in the USA come out as prime examples of carelessness. Only women in the Netherlands (34%) and Switzerland (nearly 33%) are more reckless about meeting their online acquaintance in their own home.

Distance encourages private dating

The recklessness of American women is first and foremost due to the long distances that often lie between the cities where online acquaintances live. "The obvious thing for them to do is visit each other" explains Moucha. She goes on to say that this increase cannot be ascribed to targeted "preliminary checks" of the blind date by telephone or Skype.

Online dating in Europe – Once a brainchild of the USA, now a world of its own

Europeans spend over 1 billion USD in 2012, but hardly any of it will find its way to the USA

LOS ANGELES, 26. November 2012 – The information portal DatingSitesReviewed.com has compared the world’s two largest singles dating services markets in a cross-border study for the first time. “The European Online Dating Industry 2012” has come to the conclusion: The USA is way ahead of Europe, but the old world is catching up on its own terms.

When it comes to turnover, the USA beats the whole of Europe hands down. America has by far the most advanced online dating industry in the world. Once again in 2011 it swept past the billion-dollar mark with ease, with an overall turnover approaching US$ 1.6 billion. But the annual turnover of all the European online dating sectors, totaling US$ 1.1 billion, brings it within reach of the US turnover for the first time. A comparison of the per capita turnover in the two regions also shows the EU trailing behind: In the USA the average citizen spends $ 5.30 looking for a partner online, in the EU the figure is only $ 2.80.

According to Henning Wiechers of DatingSitesReviewed.com, the reason for America’s dominant position lies in the history and tradition of online dating. “Americans have just been completely at home with online personals and matchmaking sites for many years, simply because of the long physical distances often involved between two people. While looking for love on the Internet was for a long time a little embarrassing for many Europeans, in America it’s almost the done thing".

Without “Match.com”, “eHarmony” and “AdultFriendFinder” European singles would perhaps still be waiting in the shadows: The innovative US dating sites set the pace in the industry’s first decade and also dominated to a certain extent in Europe. But in the meantime the tables have turned: The majority of US companies are no longer quite so pleased with their European business, as the local players get the upper hand on their home markets. For example, the Canadian casual dating site “AshleyMadison.com” failed to take off in many European countries, while the German “C-Date.com” managed to establish “casual dating” all over Europe and capture 20 million erotic daters within 2 years.

“On the other hand no European dating site has really managed to cross over into the US market” according to Wiechers. This means that in an otherwise extremely globalized world, two parallel universes have developed in online dating

UK dating industry hits GBP160m mark

UK providers of online dating services dominate the domestic market and leer at Europe

London, February 12, 2011 - UK singles have been jumping on online dating websites for several years. Meanwhile, most of them are prepared to pay for these services - at a progressive rate, this is also the case for ladies. This is one of the findings of the recent survey "Online dating services in UK" which is based on a poll answered by 46 leading companies of the dating industry.

In 2010, Britains have spent a total of GBP160m on online dating. This is an increase of 8.4% compared to the year before. The market segment of online matchmakers increased the most (by 12.8%) followed by online personals and dating services for amorous adventures. For 2011, the industry predicts a turnover of GBP175m.

The number of singles looking for a partner (about 6 million per month) does not vary much. Robert Bailey, initiator of the survey, says:

"These days, the leading providers do not concentrate on fast growth anymore, but rather on quality as well as on customer loyalty in order to generate more money per member. The singles looking for a partner honour this increase in quality and are prepared to pay higher prices." This does also apply to the ladies who must, at 43% of the providers questioned, pay member fees as well.

How will the leading UK providers acquit themselves in Europe and the rest of the world? Bailey thinks that the companies will be successful and dares to make a prediction: "The European markets will be divided within the next one or two years and UK online dating providers will have a strong position on the market. In our opinion, it is likely that major US companies that missed this opportunity will put out their feelers towards the market leaders in Europe." However, no UK company has ever dared the leap on the highly competitive American market, but due to increasing profits and increasing self-confidence this is merely a matter of time.

About this survey

The survey "Online dating services in UK" is based on the most comprehensive survey ever cast about UK online dating providers. In the first quarter of 2011, a total of 46 leading online dating companies were questioned about their market data, estimation and strategies.

Test report: How dangerous is Tinder Stalking?
How to set your dating app risk to zero

LOS ANGELES, 21.04.2015 – Dating apps like Tinder are not only a highly frequented address for the quick flirt, but they also offer a welcoming platform for stalkers and snoopers. Instructions on how to get someone’s private information are currently circulating on the Internet. The experts from Dating Sites Reviews have tested 100 Tinder profiles to see how high the stalking risk on dating apps really is, and to effectively protect one from them.

No danger despite alarming individual cases: Of the 50 men and women profiles which were examined in the test for their strength of privacy, no stalking was possible using a dating app in 60 percent of the cases. The pursuit ended at the Google image search. However, in a particularly extreme case, the testers could have surprised a Tinder user directly at their workplace.

Tinder stalking is when someone can identify the full name of a stalking victim on Facebook, or, in the worst case, directly in the private life by using Google image search just with a picture from a dating app and a first name.

Although there are quite a few examples of stalking which are known, there is not a reason to panic: “If you stick to just a few basic rules, you can set your personal Tinder app risk to 0”, says Henning Wiechers of datingsitesreviewed.com.

A rule for protecting oneself against Tinder stalking is: Never use the same profile picture for multiple social platforms! If someone uses the same picture for dating on Tinder, and also on social networks such as Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or other open profiles, they run the risk that this becomes the connecting piece of information for stalkers.

The 3 best anti-stalking tips from the complete test:
