Surprisingly, suspects in these cases were less likely to have a previous conviction on their criminal record than other people convicted of raping strangers.Investigators are looking into possible reasons why the uptick is happening now.Like Tweten and so many others, Gazin has had exchanges with men that have become hostile for no apparent reason, including one with a college professor with whom she had already gone on a date.But while she acknowledges that online dating can turn scary, she encourages women to counteract the nastiness—whether through exposure, humor, or other means—without taking the whole thing too seriously.On Tindr Weirdo, Gazin takes the spirit of Bye Felipe and injects it with her own twisted sense of humor.In some cases, her would-be suitors are not even being inappropriate.

So when Nathan (not his real name) matched with Alexandra Tweten, a 28-year-old woman living in Los Angeles, she was eager to start chatting. “It could have been my exact profile,” says Tweten.Of course, more people are dating online in the first place, but there's more to this story.In a statement, they said that some offenders specifically use dating sites and apps to target victims, pressuring them to meet in person more quickly than they would like, sometimes within just a week.Susan Jones, with the state Department of Health and Social Services, said in October that one factor in Alaska’s higher gonorrhea rates was an apparent rise in high-risk sexual activities.Those activities, she said, included “finding your partners through sex-seeking websites or apps and not knowing the STD status of that individual.”Any instance of dating violence should be reported to law enforcement by calling 911, and the FBI urges anyone who has lost money in a romance scam to contact its complaint center.
