In a recent study conducted at Cornell University and the University of Wisconsin-Madison it was discovered that 80 percent of people using online dating sites lied about their height, weight or age. Here are a few more things men tend to lie about when online:
1. His Job
Most men have a tendency to inflate their titles or responsibilities in order to impress women.
2. His Intention
Just because a man is on a dating site does not mean he's looking for a long-term relationship.
3. His Height
On average, guys will say they are two inches taller than they actually are, and will assume you're not going to bring a tape measure to the first date.
4. His Weight
Men will post photos of themselves from when they are looking their physical best. So if you show up on date number one and the guy is looking twenty pounds overweight, don't be shocked.
5. His Worldliness
Don't assume anything based on the guy's stated hobbies or interests; just like his job description it is likely inflated and made to sound more sophisticated than it actually is.
6. His Relationship Status
Single can mean anything from "haven't had a girlfriend in five years and looking for sex" to "newly divorced and sad."
7. His Age
One of the most common lies on dating profiles is a man fibbing about his age. More often than not he's likely older than he is.
