Dating site members are made up of all kinds of people, for centuries the media and society in general has influenced the mindset of the world into thinking that there is an ideal look or an ideal status. For example, men prefer young women over older ones, singles are preferred over involved people, and wealthy men are preferred before your average Joe. For this reason, many people choose to lie on their dating profiles. That way, they can gain the attention of someone they desire even if that person’s profile states that they would prefer someone with characteristics and traits that the liar does not possess.
The following are the common lies that people tell on their dating profiles:
“I ‘am Tall”
Most women prefer tall men over short ones. So many men lie about their height. For example, if a man is 5’8″ he might round it off to 6′. This would increase his chances in obtaining more profile views from women who are interested in men who are 6′ and above.
“I ‘am Educated”
A person’s education level speaks volume. It means that they are intelligent enough to have gained admission to a university. It means they can commit and be serious. This characteristic might also imply that the scholar enjoys activities such as studying, reading or a specific vocation such as fashion design, engineering, law, or even Medicine. Someone who does not have a college degree might be perceived negatively.
” I ‘am Wealthy”
For centuries, men have been the breadwinner. By tradition and social cultures, many women still prefer wealthy men over someone who does not earn much. A person who is experiencing financial troubles will not be anyone first choice due to the burden it potentially places on their chosen partner. Similarly, a man who does not want to be used for his money might state that he earns a lot less than what he does to filter out women who might want to use him. For this reason, many people lie about how much they earn.
”I ‘am Skinny”
Physical appearance plays an important role in maximizing views on anyone’s online profile. Therefore, it is not surprising that members are more likely to upload their best pictures to share with the dating community. For example, if someone who is skinny gains more weight than they would normally choose to, they might lie about their weight on their profile if other members prefer skinny partners.
”I Have a Good Job”
A person’s career tells a lot about the type of individual they are, their network, possible earnings, education level, schedule, amount of free time, their interests, etc. Someone with a good job is respected. If a member does not have a job worth showing off, they may lie about it so that they will have a better chance of being someone others might want to date.
Other common lies include married people claiming to be single, uninvolved and have no children to avoid the disrespect that it might bring. Others also lie about their interests and hobbies. Most lies are not meant to cause any harm, and are only used to increase a member’s chances in obtaining the person of their dreams. However, the truth does usually turn up in the end.
