Are you tired of swiping through dating profiles only to find out the person you matched with isn’t being entirely honest? You’re not alone.
According to a survey conducted by the dating app, Hinge, 80% of users admitted to lying on their dating profiles.
But what are the most common lies singles tell on dating sites?
Age: It’s no surprise that many people shave a few years off their age to appear more youthful. In fact, a study by the University of Wales Institute found that men tend to add an average of 2.5 years to their age, and women subtract 1.5 years. But in my experience as a dating coach, I’ve seen singles say they are 10 or more years younger, which makes them feel more youthful and attractive.
Height: For men, height can be a sensitive subject. A study by OKCupid found that men who listed their height as taller than they actually are received more messages from potential matches.
Relationship Status: Whether it’s still being listed as “single” when you’re actually in a relationship or claiming to be divorced when you’re still technically married, it’s not uncommon for people to fib about their relationship status.
Income: A survey by Elite Singles found that 40% of singles lied about their income on dating sites.
Job: A study by the dating site, eHarmony, found that people tend to exaggerate their job titles or even lie about their profession altogether.
So, why do people lie on dating sites? Well, for starters, it can be difficult to put yourself out there and be vulnerable. Lying on your profile can make you feel more confident and in control of the situation. But let’s be real, lying on your dating profile is only going to set you up for disappointment in the long run.
