Even if you manage not to get “catfished” while dating online, there is also a another tricky scenario: They don’t match their online personality! My friend Saul met a woman through a mutual Facebook friend. She accepted his friend request and they began communicating through messages. He was so impressed with her that it did not take long to set up a face to face meeting.
The date was not exactly what he had in mind. They struggled to keep the conversation going and her personality seemed to be completely different. How does that happen?
If you meet someone online and you communicate or observe each other through social media outlets, should you be the same offline too? Is it reasonable to expect the person who you have come to know online to at least resemble the person they are in real life?
Have you ever met someone online and realized they are the opposite of what they projected online?
Happy Friday! Headed out of town for Labor Day but I will be back on Tuesday. Have a safe and happy holiday weekend MIA!
