Effect of online dating
These advertisements do not fully convey everything about the site to the viewer, all they depict is the “good things” about online dating.
Although they avoid the dangers, discussing possible solutions to avoid these online dating dangers wouldn’t be such a bad idea.
The reason why people still use these sites is because of the false advertisements that are portrayed. The commercial only says that the couple has met and has been married for a certain amount of time but how do the viewer’s know if that is true? Beckman’s lawyer told KLAS that “adsfor the dating site give consumers no sense of the risks involved with onlinehook-ups” (David Knowles).
People just choose to believe this non sense only because it was on television. These online dating advertisements are filled with lie and deceit and it’s unfortunate to see people get hurt, killed, or left disappointed due to these “trustful” websites.
The internet has also been constructed in a way where people can date online.
This is just one of the many criminals that are out there using these online dating sites as bait.
People continue to use these online dating sites not having a clue about the many dangers that can occur. we see online dating advertisements, they always have at least two couples who have met and been married due to that site. These online dating advertisements don’t speak about the possible dangers that can happen because then the online dating sites are afraid to lose money and “trust”.
When it comes to online dating, criminals or predators take advantage because they feel that online dating sites are bursting with victims they can harm.
They create a fake profile that can take about 5 minutes to make and soon enough they are searching the site looking for a gullible victim they can put their hands on.
