Approximately one-third of NYers lie in their online dating profiles, according to a survey from online dating site whatsyourprice.com. NY is the third least honest city right behind Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. Chelsea resident Sahra Chung said that even her current husband lied on his online dating profile, saying he was a year younger. Chung saw other guys lie by over ten years and add over six inches to their height.
Studies have shown that women are more likely to lie about age and height, while men are more likely to lie about height, incomes, and relationship status.
