Irish people are more likely to lie about these two things when online dating
Would you agree?
When it comes to online dating it's a lot easier for someone to conceal information about themselves. It could be the natural colour of your hair, any bad habits you have or even your career.
But of all the lies told online Irish people have admitted they are more likely to conceal the truth about their age and weight.
According to The Irish Mirror, dating app TrueView has revealed that 17% of Irish people lie about their age while 12% lie about their weight.
Slightly more worrying is that two-fifths of people said that they ended up going on a date with someone who pretended to be single on the dating app.
It also takes Irish people on average 1 minute and 39 seconds to connect with someone online in order to arrange a date which doesn't leave a lot of time for vetting.
Matt Verity, co-founder of TrueView said:
“People looking for love are finding themselves trudging through conversations with people who aren’t serious about dating, or worse, are lying.
"This is a huge issue across a number of today’s dating apps. While some may claim to be about finding real relationships, none of them actually protect people from fake profiles, or make any effort to weed out those wanting to use online dating for the wrong reasons."
