Been online dating for what seems as forever. Met a lot of great people and even developed good relationships. But the past 5 years has seen a steady decline in quality. To be honest I have pretty much given up on it at this point. Until a couple of days ago.
Get a message from attractive lady who works in the health field. She progresses real quick to talking on the phone instead of texting. Old school style but more effective. She starts interviewing me and says that she finds men are liars in general. Always lying as she put it. I told her I don't and that whatever she asks I will be straight up. Asks about smoking, career, drug use and all the big topics. The only thing I tried to reinforce was that I too respect honesty but have given up on online dating due to how many times overweight women post old, manipulated or even false photos in the hope of snagging some dupe. She agrees all the way by conceding "... What's the point of lying when the truth is going to come out eventually."
Anyways she asks for recent selfie pic. I tell her to provide one first. She says all my photos are within the past 2 weeks. Send her one of mine. She seems to like what she sees.
Insists on video chat. Sure, let's get down to business and see what's up. Video goes live and what do I see but a huffalump trying every possible way to make itself look thinner. Myspace angles on video??? Not fooling me. Now I am stuck talking to this lump. I let her know that I am very picky right away. Also notice she has some kind of sleeve tattoo ( I hate this new girl sleeve flower tattoo phase) so I let her know that I like purity in a woman. Anyways, I made it clear that I was not interested and have not heard a peep from her since.
Just wanted to rant a bit since this kind of shit has been going on for years. Every time I fool myself to believe that maybe this time I get pranked. Just want to add to all of those who are going to say don't online date that I own my own web based company and the community I live in is a social desert. Will be moving in the spring.
