These days, online dating is so common that singles are almost expected to have active profiles on one or more dating sites. People swear by the process of online dating because it serves as the middle man, and essentially does the work for you. The only problem is that online daters aren't always honest when it's time to fill in the details on their profiles, and the relationships that form could be built on lies from the very beginning.
Luckily, if you've ventured into the world of online dating, we've compiled a list of the five most common lies told by FEMALE online daters. Check them out below!
Age tops the list as the most common personal detail that online daters lie about, and this goes for both women and men. When creating their online dating profiles, women will often shave off a couple years in order to seem younger. It's hard to understand why someone would lie about such a major detail, especially since the truth is bound to come out sooner or later.
It's also extremely common for women to lie about their height and weight, whether it's on their profile or during an online conversation. These details aren't as important as age, but still, why lie about it? Come on ladies, it's not worth it. Your online sweetie should be interested in getting to know you; the last thing you want is for some guy to like you just for your looks.
Sure, we all want to say we're rockin' an athletic and "toned" physique, but the truth is, a lot of us aren't in perfect shape. Unfortunately, women (and men) often choose to describe themselves as "athletic" in their dating profiles when in reality they haven't hit the gym since the â€˜80s. The only problem is that once you meet someone in person, it will be pretty obvious that you lied about your body type. So, the best way to start out on the right (honest) foot is to just tell the truth about your appearance rather than trying to make yourself into something you're not!
In this day and age, lots of women have high-powered, high-paying jobs, and it's not uncommon for a woman to bring in more money than her male sweetie. So, as awesome as this is, it tends to make some women insecure about their own jobs if their profession isn't as glamorous as they'd like. So female online daters end up lying about their profession or their income in order to seem more powerful, and in turn, more "attractive" to the opposite sex. The only problem is that these details are false, and lying is the complete opposite of attractive.
5. Marriage / Divorce History
These days, people think they can get away with lying about their prior marriages and divorces, especially if the courtship did not last long. So, many women who have been married before choose to omit this information when they create their online dating profiles. This is never a good idea, because as with all the other items on this list, the truth is going to come out. You may be able to keep the lie going for a short time, but nothing can stay covered up forever, and if your sweetie finds out that you lied about something this big, it's likely that their trust in you will be shattered for good.
