Most people limit their online lying in anticipation of one day meeting their match, and the fear of getting caught.
So I decided to do some asking around to find out why so many of us women are afraid to say yes to online dating.
Because People Will Think I'm a Loser This is hands-down the most common thing I heard from women.
For some reason, looking for men on the Internet is just about the most mortifying thing a woman can do. But really, it's just being honest about what you want.
When you go to a bar with your friends, wearing your favorite semi-slutty outfit and made up like you're ready for the red carpet, you secretly hope this might be the night you'll meet that certain someone. Ostensibly, you're going out with the girls to have fun, not looking for a man.
Everyone Online Lies Nowhere more than in the world of online dating does perception trump reality in the realm of love. According to a study from researchers at Cornell University, 90 percent of online daters do lie. A bit of deception about age is common, but only a 1.5 percent deviation.
