“It’s a new environment, but the same human motivations and tendencies manifest themselves as they do in other contexts,” Toma says.“The way we, as two unique individuals, communicate with one another is impossible to capture in a profile.For example, only 15 to 20 percent of people lied about their age, and the vast majority were honest about their relationship status or whether they had children — elements of their lives that would be difficult to hide from partners for very long.

“They don’t lie a great deal because they don’t want to alienate potential partners.

Nobody wants to be with a liar.” Though preferences vary widely, many online daters prefer to meet potential partners in person relatively quickly after establishing a basic level of compatibility through email or phone contacts.

According to a survey conducted last winter by the daily news site BU Today and answered by more than 4,000 students, it’s not always clear that a date is a date, it’s hard to know when a relationship is a relationship, and the best clue to the true nature of an invitation is often the time of day (or night) that it’s issued.

(Male and female students agree that any suggestion to get together that arrives after midnight can be construed as a “booty call.” Students of other gender identities put the demarcation at 10 p.m.) The nonscientific survey, which asked about such things as what constitutes a date and the usefulness of social media, tells us much about the dating preferences of students on the Charles River Campus.

It’s estimated that a quarter to a third of recent U. marriages are the result of relationships that began online.Toma studies how communication technologies such as online dating and social networking sites affect the ability of people to relate to and understand one another.As part of her current work in the Department of Communication Arts — part of the College of Letters & Science — she’s examining how technology affects self-esteem, but a major area of her research has focused on deception in online dating profiles.Looks are less important than personality, a group date is not a real date, and online dating sites are creepy.College, it turns out, also happens to be a wake-up call: 48.4 percent of female respondents say their love life has been disappointing.Expand your Dating Network by searching through thousands of student profiles for friendship, dating, intimacy & romance.Register and create your profile to meet current & former college students.Yet despite how common it’s become to meet a partner through a profile, many remain deeply suspicious of online personas, especially anytime “troll” or “catfish” stories go viral.But this perception of widespread deception may not match the reality of online dating, says Catalina Toma, a UW assistant professor of communications science who specializes in online self-presentation.This site is neither endorsed by nor an official web site of Texas A&M University.Your use of this website constitutes acceptance of the Aggie Privacy Policy and Terms & Conditions Agreement.
