Seekers of new acquaintances are increasingly abandoning the use of online services for fear of being deceived. Mairead Molloy, co-founder of the elite dating service Berkeley International, drew attention to the trend, according to The Daily Mail.
A new trend that has spread among users of dating services is called Fyre - by analogy with the "worst festival in history" Fyre, which was supposed to take place in April 2017. Then the organizers promised a large-scale program, sold tickets for several thousand dollars, and as a result, the guests who arrived discovered the absence of the declared artists and any conditions for accommodation.
According to Molloy, roughly 40 percent of the total number of clients who approached the agency in the past year indicated that they were tired of dating apps. Dating didn't always go as planned. For example, partners invited parents and friends to the first date.
The specialist shared some tips to follow when dating a stranger from the Internet. For example, Malloy believes that you should take a closer look at people who do not want to publish joint photos on the network. In her opinion, this may signal that a new acquaintance is leading a double life.
Those wishing to get acquainted are advised not to be overly gullible and to check with the help of all possible sources, for example, through social networks, whether the person is a fraud. Molloy also urges you not to be afraid to leave a date you don't like. She believes that the laws of courtesy are useless when it comes to disappointed expectations.
