REALITY NEWS ONLINE -- July 15 -- Is anybody truthful in online dating? The answer seems up in the air given that on the first episode of Hooking Up we see not only the men providing slightly untruthful information, but at least one of the women as well! How can Lisa (right) lie so much in her online profile and expect a man to be okay with it? The show opens with several clips of the woman either on their dates or discussing their dates. One dater says to the camera, “She committed the crime of dating deception.” Amy says that Chris is a very good kisser, which means she will forgive him for anything. She also tells us that he is going on a date with someone else and she is OK with it.
