A spokesperson for Illicit Encounters, a UK based website, said that one should present himself or herself as a person who he/she wanted to be, rather than who he/she was. Why? Because people judged others on what they did and not on what they were, the Daily Star reported.

The spokesperson added that their members were 'rarely disappointed' about the white lies when they met each other and that the people who had or claimed to have exciting or interesting jobs were up to three times likelier to find a date.
