Common lies on dating sites
It’s 2014, and online dating is nowhere near as taboo as it used to be.Apps like Tinder and Grindr are growing seemingly exponentially in popularity, and sites like Eharmony, and a string of others have earned a stong reputation and have largely removed that old online-dating fear of meeting a serial killer instead of a hot date.Vetting potential dates online is probably preferable to meeting in person, instantly realizing there is no chemistry or compatibility, and then sitting through hours of boring small talk.Plus, online you've got complete control over your first impressions.Take a look at the list below and see if you fit the profile of what the average online dater lies about - or just keep it in mind the next time you swipe right!The one thing most online daters immediately check when browsing matches online is recent photos.
Additionally, and unfortunately not very surprisingly, this is one of the most effective lies in online dating.

Whether it’s an effort to spare her boyfriend’s feelings to protect herself, lying from time to time is something that a lot of women do in their relationships.
Imagine you’re forty, single and making less than 50k a year.
It’s not hard to imagine giving yourself a little bump or rounding up by 5k or so to increase your chances of getting a date.
Whenever you're checking out someone’s online dating profile, it’s pretty much a given to take some things with a grain of salt.
