I found this funny and had to share it. Evidently, according to visualeconomics.creditloan.com people lie most often about their annual incomes.
Ranking second on this entertaining list was the fact they people are tend to increase their height on average by as much as 2 inches. No way, not us guys?!
According to the source, nearly 60% percent of women and over 50% percent of males also tend to lie about their weight on online dating sites.
Really to most of us we have almost come to expect this. We think that most people know that their online cupid will typically look a little different than they do online when we actually meet them in real life.
Perhaps you can relate to this scenario….
Here is how it all typically goes down. It’s Friday night and you have been talking with the new interest online all week. You’ve seen their pictures and checked numerous times to see if they have others in Google image search. Still nothing. Aargh…Your excited to see what they REALLY look like and estimate your odds about 60/40 that they will look better than the actual pictures they have online that you saw on their profile. Most of the time the photo too are a bit dated and they look a bit older when you meet them. The other times you strike gold and have a more attractive date than what you bargained for? Your smiling ear-to-ear.
Suddenly this song by the Black Eyed Peas starts playing in your head…
🙂 Sound familiar. You gotta love online dating.
2 ways to get a honest look at someone before you plan that actual meeting time.
1. Ask if they have a webcam and if you can Skype them to visit on cam. This is far and away the best way to see them. It’s also very reasonable to ask in our opinion. Most people looking for love online should be open to sharing what they look like up front because they do after all want to make sure their date is going to be attracted to them.
2. Another great way to see how honest your online date is being about their height, weight, and overall looks is to ask to add them on Facebook. This will typically render 50 or so recent photos from their friends tags, including a very good look into what kinds of things they are into.
