The Dating Site Plenty of Fish Is Banning Photo Filters

Remember a few years ago, when everyone wanted magazines to stop airbrushing models?  Then instead, we ALL started doing it to every single photo we took?  Well, a major dating site just drew a line in the sand . . .

 

PlentyOfFish.com is banning the use of photo filters in profile pics to make it harder for people to misrepresent what they look like.

 

They polled members and found 70% think filters are deceptive.  Especially ones that airbrush your face.  And 52% said they should be banned.

 

23% of people also said using a filter like that makes you seem insecure . . . and 16% said it makes you seem superficial.

 

Looks aren’t the only thing we lie about on dating sites though . . .

 

45% of users admitted they embellish their looks.  But 51% also stretch the truth about their hobbies and interests . . . 34% lie about their income . . . and 31% have lied about their education.
