online dating lies

For our first blog post, we thought it would be fitting to share a bit about how this all began. So here it goes…

Over the past several years, nearly everyone we know has been involved in online dating — friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, you name it. And while a handful have been lucky in love from the get-go, most have kissed way more than their fair share of frogs. What’s worse, many online daters have surrendered to the idea that it’s all part of the process.

Sadly, the dating stories range from flat out disturbing to deeply disappointing. And they’ve become far too commonplace. We’ve heard it all — from the guy who posted a profile pic from 20 pounds and 20 years ago, to the person who wasn’t “technically” divorced, to the six month relationship that ended with a desperate request for an urgent wire transfer to save the life of Miss Too-good-to-be-true.

It’s time to stop the madness and online dating lies. And that’s where we come in.

We’re expert problem solvers with a ton of technical know-how. We started bTru because we identified a HUGE gap in the online dating world. Studies show up to 80% of online dating profiles have something in common: lies. So we decided to do something about it.

We talked to everyone we know, read nearly every online dating article ever written, attended industry events, signed up for countless dating sites, and conducted our own research studies with online daters. We even spoke with leading dating company representatives, dating coaches and consultants, and interviewed hundreds of online daters themselves. What we found was nearly all daters share the desire for honest relationships. And importantly, they want to rule out the fakes and phonies early onbut don’t have the tools to do so.

So, we asked ourselves,what if there was an app that painted an authentic picture of the people you’re interested in BEFORE you waste time and emotional energy? And once you’re interested, what if you could connect and communicate, and even run a background check, all while keeping your contact details and full identity private?

Well in just a few weeks, that will be possible for the first time since online dating was born. We can’t wait to make bTru available to every online dater who is interested in the truth. Because we don’t think anyone should be blind on their first date.
