As a single woman, you signed up for an online dating site and crafted a nice profile, hoping to look more interesting in the guys’ eyes. But, do men believe everything they see?

Well, you should know there are certain things guys might think you are lying about:

Your height and weight

Many women dream of having the perfect silhouette, but unfortunately only a few so fortunate. So, what’s the point of lying about it? Remember, you have much more to offer than a perfect body. It’s impossible to know what type of physique a person is attracted to, so stick to the truth (or at least pretty close) After all, there are men who like a more a feminine shape just like there are those who prefer slim women.

Your age

Do you plan to lie about your age for the rest of your relationship? Unless you are looking for a one-night-stand, it’s best you tell the truth. Some guys and girls intentionally go after older men and women, so your age may benefit you after all.

Your picture

Don’t use a fake picture. Doing so will really set a trap when you meet the person offline. It’s either going to shock or annoy them and will only make you look like a liar. Be confident in your looks.

Your love of travel

Being well-travelled sends a signal that you are cultured and open-minded – having lived interesting experiences makes a person more appealing. However, if travelling is not your cup of tea, don’t pretend to be a fan of it just because you think guys expect it of you. If you’re not into it, say so. They’re bound to find out anyway.

Your gym routine

Even if you want to send the message that you take good care of your body, don’t you think he knows you are exaggerating when you pretend to hit the gym every day?

Your interest in sports

This one is very simple. There are lots of guys who are crazy for women who love sports. But those guys will know instantly if you’re faking it. If you love sports, great – just don’t overplay it!

Your level of independence

Guys don’t like a woman to be all clingy, but when you brag about your spirit of independence, it can also send the message that you’re undependable or flighty.

How easygoing you are

Here is another thing that might look fishy when emphasized in your online profile. Are you really that easy going? Then relax and let him discover it for himself!

Your tolerance

He would love you for being tolerant, especially when it comes to his mother or best friend, but are you really?

What you’re looking for

Women say they look for love and romance, guys suspect you might be into them for the money, social status or who knows what else… Either way, he will be bound to have this question in mind until he knows you better.

We are all looking for the perfect partner, but when things look too good to be true, we tend to become suspicious. So, if you want to have a fair chance at winning his heart, don’t lie about anything. Build an honest online dating profile that will allow him to get a glimpse of the real you. Trust me when I say men dig honesty.
