Vancouver men rank as some of the country’s least honest when it comes to courting, according to a dating website that shows Vancouver guys like to fudge the facts on matters such as age, profession and even relationship status.

Nevada-based WhatsYourPrice.com, which used survey results from 7,250 Canadian members, placed Vancouver at the No. 3 spot in terms of men who are dishonest about their online dating profiles.

Only guys from Mississauga and Toronto are shiftier than Vancouverites.

Local ladies, however, rank as the fourth most truthful when it comes to their profiles.

Meanwhile, Montreal, Calgary and Winnipeg are among the most honest cities when it comes to both men and women on the dating scene.

Nicole Corrado, founder of Vancouver dating site Hitchette, which screens people to make sure they’re honourable, said the findings don't surprise her.

“In any other city you go to, people are very friendly, and very open and they want to connect with you,” she said. “And here, people get the opposite response.”

Corrado added Vancouverites have a fear about connecting with each other, and she’s heard complaints about both men and women being equally dishonest when dating each other.

But she admitted it’s not surprising the data indicates Vancouver men are more willing to lie about themselves.

“The fact of the matter is, women have a little bit more authentic intentions when it comes to love because they’re a little bit more compassionate.”
