41% of Aussies admit to lying on dating apps – research from eharmony Dating Diaries takes a deep dive into the impact of honesty, authenticity and confidence in online dating

eharmony Australia < 1 mins read

Good morning,

Please see attached the latest instalment of the eharmony 'Dating Diaries' an international exploration into modern day dating.

The theme for this instalment is all about the impact that honesty, authenticity and confidence has when it comes to dating in a digital world.

Some of the key findings for the study include:

  • 41% of all singles say they’re not entirely honest on dating apps 
  • To ‘seem more interesting’ and ‘appear more confident’ are Aussies’ top reasons for telling fibs on their profiles 
  • Exaggerating height and using outdated photos are believed to be the most common untruths 
  • ‘Fear of rejection’ is the biggest emotional insecurity when using dating apps 

Aussies in particular seem to be quite skeptical with only 11% of Australians believe other users are being ‘very authentic’ while 22% say ‘not authentic at all.'  Australian singles find lying about interests (37%), height (34%), and political views (34%) to be the most acceptable on dating apps. Surprisingly, 18% of singles are okay with not being upfront about having kids. 

The full release is attached for your reference. We have eharmony psychologist, Sharon Draper (quoted in the release), available to talk to the topic in further detail.
