Lies people tell in online dating
People do everything they can in their OkCupid profiles to make themselves seem awesome, and surely many of our users genuinely are. But it's very hard for the casual browser to tell truth from fiction. With our behind-the-scenes perspective, we're able to shed some light on some typical claims and the likely realities behind them.
Among the findings:
- People exaggerate their height by about two inches.
- If someone says they make $100k per year, they probably mean $80k.
- The more attractive a picture, the older it is.
- Most self-identified bisexuals (80%) only like one gender.
