Common Lies Singles Tell Online

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Are you at home  in your apartment in Beaufort, SC trying to make New Year’s Resolution list? Is finding Mr. or Mrs. Right on the list? If so, and you have decided to begin online dating, remember that in this arena,  many people believe that self-misrepresentation is totally harmless. But in online dating the whole goal is to eventually meet people in person, so creating a false impression is a bad idea.

In their online profiles, people do everything they can to make themselves seem impressive. But it's very hard for a single person who is looking for a date to tell truth from fiction.

It has been determined that the following are often “exaggerated” online.

Height: People are two inches shorter in real life. Almost universally guys like to add a couple inches. As they approach 6 feet, they round up even a little more to reach that coveted, benchmark height.

For women, surprisingly the height exaggeration is as widespread as in men, but there is no target or benchmark height women are going for.

Salaries: People are 20% poorer than they say they are. As people get older they exaggerate more.  People advertise disproportionately high salaries for themselves.

For men, stated income has a big effect on online dating experience. So for men who are exaggerating their income, how do they continue the “game” if they actually find they had a good time and want to see the lady again?

Photos: The more attractive the picture, the more likely it is to be out-of-date.

Keep in mind that the median age of online photos is about 92 days old, but, the more attractive the photo, the more likely the image more outdated than normal.

Sexual orientation: REALITY: 80% of self-identified bisexuals are only interested in one gender.
