Spotting liars in online dating
Even if they’re not looking for a commitment, they may claim to be in order to attract more attention.
Women tend to lie about their age, weight and body type.
Men mostly lie about income, age, height, marital status and whether they had kids.
Men also tend to lie about the kind of relationship they want.
We fail to mention how the muffler fell off the car we’re trying to sell.
We don’t admit that we find Great Aunt Lucy’s famous mincemeat pie inedible.
