Don't Lie!

I am divorced and have been out of the dating scene for a long time. I wanted to start back up again, but wasn't quite sure how. A friend suggested an online dating site, so I put an ad out. The responses are really something. Women, here's a tip, just be yourself. No guy wants to think he's found what he's looking for just to find out you are something completely different. Don't lie! If you are seven feet tall, don't say you are average height. Average for what? An Amazon giant? If you weigh over two hundred pounds, don't say you are "slightly heavy" or "have a few pounds to lose." No one likes being lied to and it's a lousy way to start a relationship.
