We all dream of the perfect “meet-cute” happenstance when you bend down to retrieve something you’ve dropped only to be greeted by the love of your life staring back at you.
But in our fast-paced modern society, the odds of such a scenario occurring are slim-tonone, especially if you lead a busy lifestyle with very little free time for romantic ventures.
This is why dating apps are becoming increasingly prevalent in this day and age as they present a convenient way to put some attention towards romantic pursuits without having to flip your daily routine upside-down. However, many first-time dating app users tend to over-embellish and exaggerate their characteristics, which muddies the waters and negates any opportunity for a real connection.
A Little Honesty Goes a Long Way
The best-kept secret in the dating aworld is that no one expects you to be perfect. As a matter of fact, according to a recent study at the University of Iowa, creating an over-the-top ostentatious profile actually portrays an image of dishonesty and deceitfulness.
Thus, if you want the best chance at finding a meaningful connection, you should avoid Photoshopping your profile picture and overstating your accomplishments because, after all, a little honesty goes a long way.
