  • I've been on 1 date that resulted from phone conversations (friend gave a friend's number). He didn't lie about what he looked like, but he left out a few minor details. Worse was that our phone conversations were great, but in person, they fizzled. Needless to say, it was over in a week.

  • Aww...

    Well, I met my fiancée through a website, but, we were exactly as described.

  • I met my SO from a networking site and we simply talked because we were local and were trying to make new friends. Ended up meeting and have been inseperable since! :) But if they lie from the get go then that's just messed up and sad on their part. :(

    I HAVE met people who said they were, "built" and it was just fat, lol.

  • I went on a blind date a week before I met my wonderful husband and the guy was honest on the phone about what he looked like. He wasn't all that attractive and I could have overlooked that ( I had dated guys in the past who were less than gorgeous) if he hadn't kept trying to tickle me when we were at the movies. I kept telling him to stop and he wouldn't and I was thinking, "If he won't stop tickling me when I ask him to, what ELSE won't he stop doing when I ask him to stop?" I was sitting as far away from him as possible while still sitting in the seat next to him. I never went out with him again, and thank God, I met my amazing husband the following weekend and that was it!!!

  • The guy I'm dating now I met online and he's exactly what he said he was and looked like in pictures, and I am too. No need to lie about it.
