Three Things you Should Never Lie About on Your Dating Profile

The singles who you meet through dating websites are not looking to meet liars. To make things easier for yourself as you explore the world of online dating, you need to master the art of telling the truth on your dating profile and in your conversations. Little white lies are told each and every day throughout the world, but there are two people who need to be careful not to lie to and those people are your future employer during a job interview, and your prospective dates. This is the first of three articles outlining the three things that you should NEVER fib about on your dating site profile: Smoking StatusI had read a few articles that were written about how cigarette smokers received fewer interactions on dating websites. After the cigarette smokers changed their status on their profiles to show (the lie) that they were non-smokers, suddenly, the interactions started happening. As a dating website owner, I need to stress to every single person that lying about cigarette smoking is a mistake. Dating is about more than just attraction. It is important to connect with someone whose lifestyle and goals align with your own. Most non-smokers do not want to socialize with smokers because of the health risks of being exposed to cigarette smoke toxins. Most dating site members want a life partner who they can build their lives with. Some non-smokers are allergic to cigarette smoke and feel ill when exposed to it. Others do not want to be the caregivers to cigarette smoking partners who will eventually suffer from illness caused by smoking such as emphysema, COPD, lung cancer, stroke, and heart disease.
I can tell you with assurance that it is very difficult for a non-smoker to fully embrace being in a relationship with someone who smokes because there will always be a reaction when they are together. Whether the reactions are silent or vocal, there will always be a feeling of disapproval. The reaction might be fear of their beloved partner passing away from illnesses caused by their nicotine addictions. Another reaction could be anger and disgust at the cigarette smoker for being so careless about their health. And who wants to be sneezing, getting pounding headaches, and having nasal issues whenever they hug their cigarette-smoking partner? As someone who is allergic to cigarette smoke, I immediately feel sick when I am in close proximity to a smoker. I realize that people who are addicted to smoking cigarettes do not want to intentionally harm people. But that’s what happens when we harm ourselves, isn’t it? What we do in our lives affects other people.
In addition, many people who are looking for a life mate want to build a family. Smoking cigarettes affects the reproductive system. Men who smoke cigarettes are twice as likely to develop erectile dysfunction. How many women want to start a family with a man who is unable to perform sexually due to a problem that he deliberately brought upon himself? The quality of sperm that has been exposed to nicotine day and day out is not the best quality, and that can impact the health of babies that are conceived. And of course, people who smoke can promise that they can quit and declare that they WILL quit, but quitting is not a one size fits all approach for everyone. Some smokers take years to fully quit, and even then, they could fall off the wagon. Some smokers are able to quit cold turkey, but that is not a guaranteed approach that will work for everyone.
If you are a cigarette smoker, don’t be selfish. Tell the truth on your profile so that the people who you meet will know who you really are. Smokers have every right to smoke if they want to, but they should not deceive non-smokers about their nicotine addiction. Even though I think it is best for smokers to mainly socialize with other smokers who will not judge them for their shared habit, life will not always happen that way. If someone wants to smoke, then that information should be immediately revealed to any non-smokers they meet through dating websites early on in the connection and definitely before sparks are ignited between them.
