|Dishonest people…Page 1 of 2 (1, 2)|
|I'm in the "once bitten, twice shy" mindset for trusting people right now.|
That said, iphone/android/etc apps that let you check messages from your phone really skew with things, so you can't reliably judge by that (unless you know they don't have a smartphone).

|Are you talking about this site or just people in general?|

|I find most of the dishonesty is coming from people that aren't really looking for a relationship they are looking for something physical and to move on. Everyone with half a brain knows you cant start a lasting relationship based on lies. The Truth always boils over and the dishonest person gets a burnt hand.|

|Smartphones kinda changes the landscape of things...now you can be shopping with your son just like you told someone you would be, and you can log in and check messages. It doesnt mean they lied.|

|Sometimes people think that a lie is easier than the truth, or perhaps they've had the truth backfire on them so they figure a lie is "safer". Meh. The state of the world is such that often times we will believe the lie to be the easier route. Or the coward's way.|

|A few emails does not make a relationship ! .... You say "trust" when I say "respect".... on here some people get into the kid in the candy store mode... there's always something better around the corner... type of thinking. Best to move on... if you see it in the beginning... it could be nothing... or it could be a red flag... |
But some, .... "once the talk" happens ... shut right down and are totally different, exclusive, etc
Ultimately, your life ... your risk... your call..

|Hey.....this is the reality with those type of people, what goes around comes around! It's a physical law of the universe.|

|I , personally, have noticed a much larger degree of dishonesty on sites, like POF, that are free dating sites.|

|Hi, I have been on and off this site for a year. Had a relationship with someone for over 6 months but most of his profile was a lie or he just said what he thought women wanted to hear. "wanting honesty, divorced (he's been separated for almost 20 years), wants a relationship, wants someone to travel with, drinks socially" - he wasn't honest in all these respects & I ended up hurt as we had really clicked & I have the emails to prove it. I honestly don't know why he ended it as I am not looking for marriage or living with anyone, just having someone to have fun with in town & travel with & a monogamus relationship (don't wanna be a serial dater) - he hadn't been in a relationship for a long time & was scared of any commitment? He would make plans for us then cancel within a few hours... was my stupidity in believing his sweet comments. He did't have another woman unless you consider sports on tv as the competition. lol |
Once bitten, twice shy and still wondering why we are both still on here. I guess I feel that I was used but can't figure out why.

|In addition, there is a lot of dishonesty on this site & probably on others. Especially about intent and weight. If sex is all that is wanted, just say so, so I can block you. lol (btw, a few extra pounds doesn't mean 100 - if there is a picture, we can tell even without a full body shot lol - just be honest in your profle).|
BTW I'm looking to make friends (male and female as most of mine are attached) to just go out, have some fun & ultimately someone who likes to travel to hot spots in the winter. All inclusives, single occupancy can be so expensive. lol

|I agree there are alot of dishonest people on here. Men and women.|
Too bad it wasn't only on here. Then the rest of the world would be safe.....lol
You can be on a free or paid site and they are dishonest on both.
I did like the get togethers. They were fun and I found it easier to see more of the true person.
Guess we all have to take our chances in life and hope you meet the real deal. I like many will keep the guard up.

|I wouldn't put too much stock on someone showing up online. I mean, many can easily surf the website through their cellphones. |
I think you should pick your battles, in terms of determining what is deemed to be *dealbreaker* level of dishonesty.
That said, there are dishonest people everywhere. It's quite easy to read someone in things with the wrong intentions.

|seen many dishonest profiles. know a few of the women on her posting their age 10 years younger than they are. a coworker noticed one on here and confirmed he knew her and that the age posted way off and looking at her pics you can tell a 10 year span.|

|I see lying about your appearance, as someone who is ashamed of theirs. It's an early sign, they have self-esteem issues, and would be quick to sniff out once you met them. |
You reach a certain age, and spotting a liar is rather easy. I don't see liars as bad things, as they make you appreciate those you come across that are honest, tenfold (considering you'll appreciate how hard it was to find them).
Negativity and positivity, is all in how you choose to look at things.
Dishonest people are only frustrating, if you allow them into your life. I mean, you show me dishonesty, I quickly show you the door. I strongly believe you teach people how to treat you.

|I just recently found out my boyfriend of 2 1/5 years had a profile on this site. One of the girls he enganged in conversation with recognized him and once she realized who he was, called me and let me in on everything. He keeps saying it was stupid and immature and really has no other explanation for me. Any advice would be helpful! |
His username was "serge7777" is anyone else has talked to him.
