It's as if some online daters are not hoping to have a romantic evening but rather are preparing to do battle by jousting with their noses. Do they really think that when they finally encounter their date in person, that it won't be immediately obvious that they are two cup sizes smaller, two inches shorter and 20 pounds heavier than they claimed online?
Women lie more than men by nearly 10 percentage points! Perhaps they assume their personalities will magically make up for the fact they do not look anything like the picture that was posted online. Although fewer men lie than women, their top lie is about having a job that is better than the one they've actually got.
It's not vilification people; it's a lack of common sense.
Men admitted to lying about height, weight and physique in their top five lies -- behind jobs and ahead of money -- and women lied about weight, age, physique, and height, with money rounding out the top five. Most of these are lies their dates can spot in the first few seconds of seeing them.
