Recently I heard a story from a friend of mine (a girl) who went out on a first date with a guy she had met on a dating site. Based on what I was told, the guy was definitely a bit strange.
For example, one thing she told me stuck out in my mind from her recap of the date. She told me that during the date, he mentioned the photos she shares on the website. “You’re much better looking than in your photos,” he said. That sounds like a harmless compliment, but he went on. “I don’t know if you’re profile reflects that…You don’t have any glamour shots.”
Why would he be overly concerned about the quality of her photo gallery on the dating site? Is he worried about her being able to get future dates? This makes no sense to me. After all, wouldn’t it be to his benefit to have found a girl who’s more desirable in person, than in photos posted online? Does he want to increase his competition?
Some people have good gaydar, and some people have other unique senses and skills.
So, do you know anyone who can look at pics online without having met the person, and be able to definitively proclaim that the person looks much better in person? – because that skill might just come in handy in today’s modern world.
