Abstract:

Online dating profiles are a popular new tool for initiating romantic relationships, although recent research suggests that they may also be a fertile ground for deception. The present study examines deception in online dating profiles using a novel cross-validation technique for establishing ground truth for online self-presentation. An analysis of 80 participants’ profiles suggests that the deviations between participants’ online self-presentations and the truth tended to be small but frequent. This pattern of deception is consistent with the Hyperpersonal model’s assertion that online communicators engage in strategic and selective self-presentation. The results also suggest that, when deciding what to lie about, users take into consideration both the technical affordances of online dating portals, such as the editability of profiles, as well as the more social aspects of online dating, such as warranting and relational goals.
