Reports Huffington Post:

The dating site — billed as an “online dating auction,” the site allows “generous” members to bid on dates with “attractive” members; yes, this has been likened to prostitution — surveyed men and women around the country to find out who’s lying the most in their online profiles.

The website amNewYork reports that, according to the survey, 37 percent of men in D.C. are lying on their profiles, mostly about career and education.

Check out the rest of the survey results for men in this slideshow — the results for women are below that (spoiler: D.C.’s women fare slightly, but only slightly, better than the city’s men):

Here are the cities that finds have the most honest online daters:

1. Houston
2. Phoenix
3. Boston
4. Pittsburgh
5. Chicago

1. Charlotte
2. Houston
3. Minneapolis
4. Seattle
5. Phoenix
