Odds are you have tried online dating. If you haven't consider yourself lucky (and either in a long term relationship or single). There is a study, released by HighSpeedInternet.com that has evidence that New York is the 8th riskiest state for online/app dating.

The good news (if you can look at it that way) is there are 7 states that are worse than NY. Here they are:

  1. Alaska
  2. Louisiana
  3. Mississippi
  4. Georgia
  5. Nevada
  6. Arizona
  7. New Mexico
  8. New York

How did HighSpeedInternet.com come up with this info? What was this conclusion based on? (No, it was not on my personal online dating horrors) It was based on issues of cybercrime, violent crime and STD rates. Cat-fishing and those cat-fishers asking their "sweeties" aka victims for money was also more prevalent in those 8 states listed above.
