When it comes to online dating websites, men are most likely to lie about their age, while the top lie for women is their weight, a new report says.

The website OnlineSchools.org recently compiled information from 14 different articles and surveys. The site's report says the online dating industry is bigger than the porn industry, raking in $1.049 billion each year.

Along with lying about their age, men also sometimes say they're taller than they really are and make more money than they do, the report says.

While weight is the top lie for women, they will also sometimes fib about their physical build and their age.

The report says the surveys it looked at revealed one in three women who meet men online had sex the first time they met, and of those, four out of five didn't use protection.

Onlineschools.org says there are 40 million people who use dating websites in the U.S., 15 million in India and 140 million in China.
