This new trend has become so popular that the dating app, adultfriendfinder.com has banned the practice!
It makes sense that people would want to see a potential mate with a mask on considering that we’re in the middle of a pandemic.
A survey from dating.com found that 83% of those surveyed prefer to pursue a potential partner who thinks like-minded in terms of pandemic safety protocols. So seeing a person with a mask on is more appealing and more likely going to make a person Swipe Right.
But Maskfishing gives off the impression, to some, that that person is hiding something. The person behind the mask may be trying to lure a person that would be out of their league.
But eventually, the mask will come off, and all will be revealed!
