Dating for weird
I found Pete*, a guy my age who worked at a local car dealership.I don’t remember being blown away by the interests he listed on his profile and he didn’t have a lot of pictures up (again, Pete and I My Space-messaged and texted back and forth for a few weeks before making plans to go on a date.Of course, he said that everything else he had told me was true and pleaded me to “stay friends” with him, but I had zero interest in speaking to him again.A lot of times on , it’s easy to write someone off as shallow when they’re not interested in continuing the relationship after discovering the person they’ve been talking to isn’t as attractive as their photos.I didn’t want another Hunter situation where I spent over a year of my life falling for someone who wasn’t even who they claimed to be.I also didn’t want to talk to him too long before meeting him in case there wasn’t any chemistry in real life. Even though Pete and I had exchanged flirty texts and I felt we had chemistry when we chatted on the phone, when we first met up (in a public place, obviously) he was a lot more shy than had come across in his messages. And even though we had plenty to talk about while we were behind our computers, there was very little connection between us in person. On the phone, we could talk about anything and we got along so well.With online dating, it’s so easy to project all the characteristics you’d like a guy to have onto someone you don’t know very well.
I had spent a few weeks getting to know this guy and I had really thought that we would click in person.I didn’t find his personality amazing, but he was so good looking that I was willing to overlook it. Eventually, Hunter confessed that not only had he stolen someone else’s pictures, he didn’t live anywhere close to where he indicated in his profile.Hunter sent me actual photos of himself and he looked nothing like his profile pics.When I got bored, I searched for hot guys based on my zip code to see who was out there.First, I found Hunter*, a model-hot guy with shaggy hair and washboard abs.
