Think you're going to go see that thin, blonde, buxom woman you've been chatting with online when you meet her for drinks tonight? After reviewing how many people have had to be turned away from my site, Beautiful People.com, because they had been deceitful in their application, I thought it would be prudent to commission a survey and dig a little deeper in to the most common deceptions.
Think that "affluent man" who you're about to join for an expensive dinner, will be able to pay for both of you? Running an exclusive online dating site myself, I can attest to the constant battle in working to maintain the integrity of online dating communities by weeding out disingenuous profiles -- yes, surprise surprise! The study of 1,000 single men and women -- all of whom belong to various leading mainstream dating communities -- was conducted across the US and the UK by global research agency .
Women lie more than men by nearly 10 percentage points! Perhaps they assume their personalities will magically make up for the fact they do not look anything like the picture that was posted online. Although fewer men lie than women, their top lie is about having a job that is better than the one they've actually got.
Probably because over 20 percent of women post old pictures of themselves when they were younger and often thinner. A man could easily swindle a woman into a date, or even a relationship, before the woman discovers he's not a prince but a pauper.

More than 40 percent of men try this tactic, confessing they wanted to make their job sound more prestigious.
It's as if some online daters are not hoping to have a romantic evening but rather are preparing to do battle by jousting with their noses. Do they really think that when they finally encounter their date in person, that it won't be immediately obvious that they are two cup sizes smaller, two inches shorter and 20 pounds heavier than they claimed online?
Clearly the older generations understand that it's better to be accepted for who you are rather than who you wish you were.
The Internet allows us the freedom to represent ourselves in a way we wish people would see us or the way we wish we could actually be.
An online love interest who asks for money is almost certainly a scam artist.
Don’t send money to tide someone over after a mugging or robbery, and don’t do anyone a favor by making an online purchase or forwarding a package to another country.
