It appears men and women both deceive in online dating. A study by Benz, Anderson, and Miller found "that both men and women believe that men attempt to deceive women about their financial status and level of commitment, and that women attempt to deceive men about their physical attractiveness." Wow! MM is the perfect place for this to occur. Care to comment?
