WARNING! 3 Common LIES Found in 60% of ALL Online Dating Profiles (2 Are Done MOST By MEN!)

Who else is cynical when it comes to online dating sites? Are you silently and secretly SICK of being single… but having a hard time making the leap of faith to joining an online dating site? If you said YES… the good news is, you are NOT alone! As a matter of fact, in a widely cited survey published in late 2011, about 30% of people who join online dating sites are still too embarrassed to tell their friends, family or co-workers.

(Quick TIP – if you are one of these people, do NOT put on your profile “I can’t believe I’m doing this”… it was cited as the biggest cliche by both sexes as well!)

The bad news is, online dating is now expected to be the TOP way that couples meet by the year 2018, with all kinds of predictions being that more marriages will emanate from online encounters than those that start online, for sure.

Okay, now for the good (and funny) stuff! Want to know the 3 most common “lies” or fibs people tell online, according to a survey of more than 1200 respondents AFTER the first date? Here they are… and if you’ve had any online dating experience yourself, I think you’ll agree, these are all 100% true!

Most common MALE Fib:

Height! According to women who met over 600 men and compared the profile with the actual reality, men tended to add about 1.5 inches to their height when filling out an online profile. While the average height for most men on dating sites is about 5’11, and in real life… the average height is about 5’9, it’s no surprise when you do the math that’s something is off.

The sort of funny but well thought out excuse most men made about this vertical white lie? That their dates wouldn’t be able to tell their true height… simply because they could wear higher heeled shoes on the date until she noticed the truth.

Most common FEMALE fib:

Weight! I know, I know… many of you aren’t going to like hearing it, but women traditionally described themselves as “thin” or “athletic” under the build section, when in reality, many were described by their dates as having a bit of a different body than described!

Most likely to lie about appearance overall?

Men! Many men were accused of using pictures that were at last 2 years (and 20 pounds) ago, with almost 7 out of 10 women reporting that their date looked better, and FAR younger online, than he did in person. Interestingly, women while women were misleading about self describing their weight, they also tended to be far more honest with pictures than men, and didn’t “cherry pick” only their very best pics to post.

The bottom line?

Have fun! Don’t over think it, worry too much or sweat it if your date doesn’t arrive, exactly as described! Lots of people do the very same things… and at the end of the day, the good news is, MOST of us simply want to meet someone to love and laugh at all of this with!
