Yet, I couldn’t help but wonder, is he lying about other “facts”? Will it turn out to be a plastic sailboat he plays with in the bathtub?
Or worse, a rubber ducky he actually believes is a 44-foot sailboat? *Names and identifying information have been changed to protect privacy and security.
Heights tend to get stretched, incomes tend to swell, and personalities are shown in the best possible light. They won’t tell you that they’ve moved every six months for the past decade.
So, you can lie in your online dating profile a little bit, subtly.
But if you do it too much then you will sabotage yourself.
He also turned out to be a gentleman, and we had a nice evening.
I didn’t tell him that I knew about his deception because that might be kind of judgmental at a time when lying seems to be uncontrollable. Tonight’s date tells me he owns a 44-foot sailboat.
My biggest criticism of online dating is this: People lie. When I came across his profile on a site, he had shed eight years.
