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.
