Sociologist Dr Kevin Lewis of the University of California told the USA Today newspaper that women must be careful with online dates.
He said: "For women, there are lots of guys who are just creepy or unattractive or undesirable." He also said men can have problems finding a date: "They can't get a woman to respond because [women get] so many messages." Dr Lewis also said that 38 per cent of online daters have read an online profile of someone they knew.
