It’s estimated that by 2040, 70% of us will have met our significant other online.
A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their online dating profile.
Women apparently lied more than men, with the most common dishonesties being about looks.
While dishonesty was slightly less prevalent among the British sample, 44% did admit to lying in their online profile.
In both the US and UK samples, dishonesty declined with age.
Let’s be honest, the internet is really just a super elaborate and sophisticated farce designed to distract you from having your pockets picked by greasy conmen in cheap suits, right?
