But if he's lying, he's probably a people pleaser -- the type of person who'd try to put himself in the best light even if you'd found him offline first, according to a University of Kansas researcher.
In professor Jeffrey Hall's survey of 5,020 men and women who belonged to an undisclosed Internet dating site, most respondents indicated they wouldn't lie.
It's so obvious the author always knows what the readers want. She had decided to online date as research for her new novel. When she finally needed one last victim, she accepted a date with Quinn just to see if he would fit.
Quinn Mc Intyre is an undercover cop working on a serial murder case.
He was ordered to go on dates with the women who were suspected of being ‘Breathless’, a female serial killer.
And there was an evidence linking Lucy to this case, so he kept pursuing her in an attempt to find out the truth. Lucy pretended to be a nurse and Quinn gave false information to her that he is a widowed plumber. They seemed to start off hot, but then kind of fizzled.
While Lucy was starting to have strong feelings for Quinn, he was trying so hard not to get attracted to her. There were some comedic points, but - to use the word again - they were average.
Even though he had believed that she was Breathless, he still couldn’t stop thinking and wanting her. By far the worst part of this book was the writing itself.
An answer of 1 indicated "not at all likely;" a 10 indicated "very likely." "On average, answers were close to around 2 for the most part," Hall said.
Men indicated they were more likely than women to lie in every category except weight, according to the study.
However, the differences between men and women were small, Hall said.
