Honesty and Online Dating

Once again, the disclaimer that I am no "pro" at online dating...
However, one thing I have observed, both personally, and thru browsing sites, is that too many people aren't being honest with themselves and others online.
What's the point? When you do actually make contact with another person, let's face it, folks, it can be a bit nerve-wracking. There are a lot of strange folk out here in cyber-land (I'm NOT one of them, of course...LOL ), and meeting a virtual stranger does carry a bit of risk with the challenge.
Disappointment and other less happy feelings often accompany the meeting when we discover that the person we meet is very little like the person we cyber. Dating is tough enough when you are being up front, but damn near impossible to find the "happy ending" when dishonesty is involved.
It may seem to suck a bit, and narrow down your options to tell the whole truth about your situation...relationship status, hair, body, height, weight, age, etc... but is it really gonna be better with bullshit? What is ever better with bullshit...except the garden? LOL

And stop complaining about things if you are NOT being honest...one of the best comments I have read was by a lady who saw thru a guys whining BS.
He was whining about not being able to find a "fuck-buddy". Her answer? "You're married"

But really, folks, honesty is the best policy, even here in fantasy cyberland. If and when you do meet, isn't it nicer to know what you are meeting is the same person you've been online with?

Its the same here online as anywhere else when meeting people. Its always been that way. People build themselves up trying to impress, little white lies turn into more, and then the cover up, and the rest.
