Millions of people use online dating sites to search for the person of their dreams. And millions of people have learned the great lesson of online dating: It’s easy to lie on the Internet.
So now, not only are there dating sites, but there are sites to expose the lying daters. The New York Times featured some of these sites in an article on February 16, 2006, headlined (Name Here) Is a Liar and a Cheat. (Registration required to read the story.)
The article featured sites like DontDateHimGirl.com and Manhaters.com, which, as the Times wrote, “are dedicated to outing bad apples or just identifying people who may not be rotten but whose dating profiles are rife with fiction.”
Another site, Cyberpaths.blogspot.com, goes after the online predators. “Online players, Internet predators, cyberpaths, dating site frauds…whatever you call them, they need to be EXPOSED!” it states. Cyberpaths has links to 26 websites dedicated to doing the job.
