WHY GUYS LIE ON DATING APP PROFILES
At last, an explanation for this pathetic ploy.
His bio said he’s 6' 3"…but in person he needed a booster seat. Dating app Hinge recently coined such fibbing to make yourself seem more attractive as kittenfishing— not to be confused with catfishing (assuming a whole new identity). Here, digitalage intimacy and relationships expert Robert Weiss breaks down the reasons a man might try to dupe you.
IF HE KITTENFISHED YOU
(1) He has low self- esteem and hopes that once you meet him, you won’t notice the traits he's trying to hide. ( 2) He just wants to bone. He figures you might choose to ignore his white lie and take him home. (3) He thinks that since you fell for him online first, his stretch of the truth won’t matter.
IF HE CATFISHED YOU
(1) He tried to gain your trust so he could use or manipulate you for his own needs. (2) He wanted to cheat on his current S.O. without getting caught. (3) He presented himself however he wanted to lure in an online- only GF.
