54% of people lie on dating sites

A news study has revealed that more than half of people using internet dating sites tell lies about on their profiles. Pew Research said that that 54% of online daters have “seriously misrepresented” themselves on dating websites — fibbing about height, income and age.

The study also notes people dating online are often disappointed, in part because they tend to create “a fantasy” about another person that doesn’t pan out in real life.

Women are more likely than men to have had a bad experience dating online with roughly 42% of females claiming they were unsatisfied.

Even so, 59 percent of people surveyed said that online dating is a good way to meet people, according to the study.
