Did you know that 80% of singles have fessed up to lounging on their online dating profiles? Ter a explore conducted by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Cornell University found that 80% of online daters lie about their height, weight or age.
People lie to talk themselves up, not,to be liars. The internet, after all, is a place where it is effortless to pretend to be someone who you are not.
Research has found that slight misrepresentations on online dating sites are quiebro common, major lies are actually uncommon – which is reassuring!
So what are the Ten most common lies people use online?
50% of guys are untruthful about their height – telling they are taller According to a explore by Ok Cupid taller guys received twice spil many messages spil shorter guys. Guys know women choose taller guys. Whereas shorter women get more attention online.
More women lie about weight than boys. Women took off Trio.8kgs whereas guys took of .6kgs. There is absolutely no point lounging about weight spil when you meet it will be demonstrable – it will never result te a 2nd date!
People lie anywhere inbetween 20 -40% on their income bracket. Dudes actually thought it wasgoed acceptable to lie about income or occupation more than anything else ter their profile. The reason they do this is they know how significant this is to women. My advice is this is something that shouldn’t be answered ter a profile.
42% of dudes lie about some opzicht of their job whereas 32% of women do. Some women also downplayed their intelligence.
This is the largest area where people lie and wasgoed found to be the single most deceptive factor of a online profile. It is common to postbode photos that don’t accurately represent the person – old photos, digitally improved photos or just head shots. I recommend people waterput up inbetween 3-5 photos – one good head slok, one total bod photo and one doing something you love. So often I find people wreck their profiles by putting too many photos up. The thing with a photo is you want it to look good but not so good that the person won’t recognise you when they arrive at a date.

This is another common area where people lie because they want to display themselves te the best possible light. People may say they like sport – when it is something they only do merienda ter a blue moon. I love the story of a stud who selected women who said they loved to walk along the beach. When he contacted the women and attempted to arrange a date walking along the beach they ALL declined and said they didn’t want to, many said it wasgoed something they never do! Your profile should reflect what you genuinely love to do, that way it will attract a person who loves similar things.
It may sound grim but don’t let this waterput you off, 40% of people overheen forty meet online, it is a bit like sorting the wheat from the chaff! My advice is go on dates with out too many expectations then you can only be pleasurably astonished.
