The Most Common Lies People Tell When Dating Online

OKCupid has compiled another one of their exhaustive reports on online dating factoids after surveying their data, and this time around we get to find out what exactly men and women are lying about when it comes to online dating. Really, there are no big surprises here, but it’s sort of eye-opening when you see how, well, endemic it is. For example, it’s not like a few dudes lie about their height. Like, large numbers of them are claiming to be two-inches taller than they really are. Maybe that’s no big deal if you’re a 5’6″ chick, but I’m 6’1″, and homie don’t play that. People also lie like hell about their income and on average make 20 percent less than they claim. Another conclusion: The more attractive your photo is, the more likely it’s out of date. Also? All you people frontin’ about being bisexual? Mostly, you’re straight. In any case, it’s sort of disheartening, until you realize that we’re all, in one way or another, misrepresenting ourselves, to some degree — aren’t we? [OKCupid] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: How Much Space Is Too Much In A Relationship?

We’ve all dated a jerk at some point in our lives, and if you haven’t yet, you will. Like they say, you have to kiss a bunch of frogs to find your prince, right? Well, needless to say I’ve kissed my fair share of frogs and still no prince. But each frog I’ve dated has taught me at least one valuable lesson, if not more. One lesson I learned from an ex-frog is that if you give a guy a little rope to work with it might actually bring him closer to you, but give him too much rope and he will hang himself.

Dear Wendy: “My Boyfriend Says He’s Not In Love”

It’s time again for “Shortcuts,” wherein I answer readers’ letters in two sentences or less. Sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss loser boyfriends, lying about one’s age, and creepy old-man dance teachers. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: Honesty — Did I Do It Wrong?

I consider myself to be a pretty honest person, save the occasional white lie — “Oh yeah, I’ve read War & Peace. Thought-provoking!” However, I think telling the truth is not always easy and it doesn’t necessarily work out how you’d like it to. The goal of telling the truth shouldn’t be about relieving a guilty conscience; if being honest is going to have massive repercussions, it’s important for the truth-teller to really consider its worth; other people’s truths should be theirs to tell, unless the emotional cost to the one being lied to is that grave. Ultimately, though, I think we all decide when to be honest based on whether we would want to hear the truth ourselves. Is it a foolproof decision-making method? Definitely not, but sometimes it’s all we’ve got. Keep reading »
