Deception and Fraud Online: Developing Guidelines for Online Safety - CORNELL UNIVERSITY
Although online dating has grown to be a very popular way to find romance in recent years, the reality is that most singles misrepresent themselves in their online dating profile. This can include anything from manipulating photos, misstating height and weight, to exaggerating their income. The most common lies told were regarding weight. Two thirds of those surveyed underestimated their weight by at an average of nine pounds and almost half of participants stretched their height and stated they were three inches taller than their true height.
