Meeting in Real Life

Met someone for coffee today... that I had been having socially acceptable normal conversations with... about cars, convertibles and such.
It was who I was in communication with, but not the person in the picture..
It was who he had described... kinda...
But, it didn't matter... zip chemistry... OK to talk to, but nothing beyond.

So.. why the fake picture... it wasn't more appealing than the real person...??
And what was he looking for, that required false presentation ?

Why the subterfuge? I guess I am missing something, because this is not the first time.

At another meet, the man stated he was only a few years older... and taller than he probably was in his youth.
But, he had given me his real name... and I had spoke with him a lot, before agreeing to a meeting.
A Google search provided wife's name... occupation... Son... residence in other states... and enough info, to determine his real age... which was less than what I would have guessed as a medical person.
He was startled that one of the first questions I asked... was how long since your divorce? It couldn't have been that long by deduction. Kudo's he didn't lie. But, the whole night talking about his children... work... and passion as a mediochre violinist, he never once acknowledged his oldest son, Gay and very prominent politically.
He insisted on a second date... even if I was hesitant enough that it took a month or more to get me to agree.
It became evident, that he had expected me to go home with him... probably stocked up on Blue pills.
His disappointment was palpable.
I had not given any indication, lead him on... or even let him pay the bill.

My Sister's old high school boyfriend has a profile that say's he is my age... +10 years younger than he is.

She doubted me... and that hurt... so I copied the profile and sent it to her.

My Brother is his age... they were friends in high school, he is worn but very physically mentally active. He is friends with a biologically possible woman, intelligent, and around if not his own age.

They appear equals and complimentary on all levels... And I admire her.

That happens a lot on sites. I have met people from online in the past that looked nothing like their photos. I think sometimes it is a vanity thing. They are not what they were and cannot accept that fact. That might be fine if you never plan to meet that person but how they think they are going to pull it off in person I do not have a clue. I knew one guy who used the picture of his better looking friend to get women online. He finally met a woman in person and had a lot of explaining to do. He was a nice person but way too insecure. She refused to see him again and I got to tell him I told you so. Just could not help it. Had to be said.

Only once did a photo not look like what I expected in real life, it was fuzzy and dark. She kept mentioning her huge nose a few times. She was also much more rotund than I expected. It wasn't anyone from this site.

I posted ablog on this subject a few weeks ago. There are many good comments by people applicable to this post. My sentiments are expressed in it.

Come on, guys! Ugly people need love too! Like myself for instance. Just give us a chance to win you over with our charm. Now if we're ugly AND have no charm, well then...That's when the boot should come out.

I said he didn't match his pic....
I meant it was a picture of someone else...
A non- Hispanic nerdy type tragically white guy.... taller...skinnier... different interests...

And then he tried to get me to meet him again after a week or so...
We had agreed, out loud that there was "NOTHING" for us to pursue after the last time.
