The US Association of Psychological Science found that reviewing multiple candidates causes people to be more judgmental, and inclined to dismiss a not-quite-perfect candidate than they otherwise would be in a face-to-face meeting.

More than 40% of men indicated that they did this, but the tactic was also employed by nearly a third of women.

A total of 53% of US participants admitted to having lied in their online dating profile.
Women apparently lied more than men, with the most common dishonesties being about looks.
