New Study Shows How Photo Filters Affect Trustworthiness Among Daters
- A recent study in Computers in Human Behavior found that while women are attracted to men’s filtered photos on dating apps, these images are seen as less trustworthy.
- Though enhanced pictures increase attractiveness, they decrease perceived trustworthiness. However, many women still expressed interest in profiles with altered photos, indicating that physical appeal often outweighs trust concerns.
- Filters remain popular in the dating scene despite dating apps implementing photo verification for authenticity.
- The study, involving over 280 English-speaking women, suggests both genders prioritize appearance.
