I’d class myself as what you’d call “averagely attractive”.I can dress up and turn a few heads, but I couldn’t earn a living from my appearance.Who wants to spend effort trying to discover which one in the photo you are? Talking online has the added pressure of using all the right Internet slang (none at all), punctuating properly (all the time), and figuring out how many smiley faces will make you look enthusiastic without seeming like a creeper (one, maybe).A computer program has been developed that can tell if a person is lying by analysing linguistic cues in emails, texts and even online dating profiles.Anyone who’s been on a few dates from either a dating website or a dating app knows that while some people resemble their profile, others erm… Whether it’s knocking years off their age, adding inches to their height, or selecting their aspirational body type rather than their At the same time, though, I can understand why people lie about such things. But while some may do so for malicious reasons, I think for most people it’s born out of frustration.
You’re super into each other, but when you come clean about your age, it doesn’t go like you hope. Sometimes it makes sense to adjust your age accordingly.The in-depth studies found that about 81 percent of people misrepresent their height, weight or age in their profiles.On average, the women described themselves as 8.5 pounds thinner in their profiles than they really were.If you want her to stick around, you’re going to want to wait until you’re damn sure she’s really into you (or – ideally – in love with you), and that number is something she’s willing to look past.But even then, it’s risky business because you’ve already invested so much.
