Cheating dating apps are an alternative that has recently gained strength. They are an option for those who seek to escape from their formal relationship and find someone much more similar for different reasons.
secondlove, platform dedicated to this market, revealed a series of reasons why people look for an app of this style, in the midst of a panorama in which polyamory is also a way to escape from commitment.
Reasons to be unfaithful in apps
After conducting an investigation in Latin America, the dating application found that there are four key reasons for a couple to make the decision to search and enter one of these platforms.
The main one is monotony and routine, with 32%, something that has been growing in the last two years.
“From 2020 onwards, throughout Latin America, 10% more people have registered on the dating site each year and the main reason why they want to meet other people is because they began to feel unmotivated, even if they are in a relationship, and They attribute this mainly to the monotony of life as a couple,” said a spokesperson for Second Love.
After this reason appears the lack of attention from their current partners with 29%, then the lack of affection in 26% and, finally, the lack of sex that represents 13% of those surveyed.
All this leads the person to enter the platform and find profiles according to their tastes, which give them something different from what they are experiencing.
“Dating apps are positioned as the ideal place to meet people who share the same interests and the same lifestyle in terms of the way they relate, that makes them the ideal or conducive place to interact with people who are in the same position in front of love”, affirmed the spokesman.
Another point of the report is that the application ensures that users who declare in their profiles that they are willing to have open partners or relationships in the style of ‘polyamory’ have increased by 25%, all to escape from commitments.
This also becomes a type of agreement between the couples, so that they are ‘unfaithful’ to them by having other short-term relationships and without being romantically linked.
Dating apps should be used with care
To avoid money or data theft there are three keys:
1. Do not link other social networks: If a user chooses to do so, their profile will be automatically populated with information from that social network, such as photos and profile information. Users could also share data such as their place of work or university.
2. Recognize the signs of a suspicious profile: For example, if the person only has a photo or nothing written on their bio, it may be a fake profile. Another suggestion is to use tools like Google Chrome’s reverse image search engine to see if the images you have on your profile are real.
3. Take into account the place of the appointment: Before making an appointment, it is best to talk to the person by video call, to make sure that they are the person you are trying to meet. It is better that the first time you choose a place that you know intimately, preferably one that is public and has high visibility.
