This statistic probably won't improve Washington's reputation, or make you more excited about online dating.

The dating site whatsyourprice.com -- billed as an "online dating auction," the site allows "generous" members to bid on dates with "attractive" members; yes, this has been likened to prostitution -- surveyed men and women around the country to find out who's lying the most in their online profiles.

Turns out D.C. is not only the nation's infidelity capital -- it's also the center of online dishonesty.

The website amNewYork reports that, according to the survey, 37 percent of men in D.C. are lying on their profiles, mostly about career and education.

Check out the rest of the survey results for men in this slideshow -- the results for women are below that (spoiler: D.C.'s women fare slightly, but only slightly, better than the city's men):
