    if you know for a fact that a member is lying about their age and height, do you call them out?

    Gays do this everywhere. It's annoying when many guys around my age are super ugly, and then I find out they're actually 6-10 years older. I call them out when I find out. I yelled at this guy on Grindr because he said he was 30, but really 38. Now I know why I thought guys at the age of 30 were ugly when I was 21, because they were really 38.

    I feel sorry for guys that feel the need to lie. However, there are many gay men out there that consider men over 30 years old ugly and worn out. Perhaps lying is a delusional hope that once a meeting is actually established, the other guy will change his mind?

    Someone I dated was on this site, lying about his age claiming to be 15 years younger. It was just a torso picture but I could clearly recognize his body and writing style.

    I didn't call him out on it. There are more important things for me to be concerned about.

    Because they are insecure about their age and height, or because they are dangerously perverted and thieves?

    Slightly off topic, but I usually do not give an accurate birthday on any online form unless there is a clear need for the web site to have the information.

    I have a big concern about identity theft. I have had friends go through that and its an absolute nightmare so why make it easy by giving out pieces of information that don't necessarily add to the web experience but could be used for identity theft.

    How do you know which web sites to trust?

    I am surprised by the people on facebook who actually have their birth date and year visible for anybody to see.

    I don't make myself younger. I usually make my birth month a few months earlier and even the day of the month is changed a bit.

    Sometimes I add a year and make myself older.

    In the end, my age year is generally correct or only off by one year (on the older side).

    Check out CNN's article on Rapleaf, a firm that aggregates data on people on the internet. Between the privacy breaches at Facebook and other firms and the presence of companies like Rapleaf its just a matter of time before identity theft really takes off.

    http://money.cnn.com/2010/10/21/technology/rapleaf/index.htm

    To some this may sound paranoid, but I would rather be safe than sorry.

    Ask anyone who has experienced true and expensive identity theft. It can take months to sort things out and there can still be echoes years after the actual incident. Its very easy to ruin someone's credit score and extremely difficult to fix it.

    I would just hit the ignore button. At least he's using real profile photos; that's a step up from some.

    they're having a little fantasy going on.
    just humor them, they're stuck with the burden of
    remaining coherent in their lies.
    and eventually fail.

    The guys who lie about their age are doing a disservice to themselves. Most of the time the guy's photo doesn't match the age they've stated. Either they're lying or have not aged well at all.

    As for height, if you have no intentions of ever meeting the person, then lie away. But don't get indignant when someone tells you off when you've lied saying you're 6ft but in reality 5 ft 7.

    Well, something I also value in a man is honesty. When my partner & I met you for dinner, you were exactly as advertised here. Your pics are 100% accurate, your profile stats on the money. When you walked into that restaurant I instantly knew who you were. You showed us pics that confirmed your other profile statements. I hope we were also honest about our being old & decrepit, as I had told you beforehand, likewise showing you pics of us, especially doing the Key West bike ride as I recall.

    But to me, even a legal & hot guy who lies to me, has lied. I mistrust deception. If it were just for a trick, a single romp, well, maybe OK. But don't expect I'm gonna have any long-term respect for you if you try to play games with me.

    In potential relationships I think it's still true that honesty is the best policy.

    I don't care. If I were looking to date someone though, it would piss me off.
