After dating literally in the dark, they finally get to see each other.
Will it be love at first sight, or will they leave alone?
Still, the question of whether it’s a white lie or a whopper often lies in just how close to the truth it is.
For example, common categories to describe weight are “slender,” “fit,” “average,” and “a few extra pounds.” Most people are afraid to pick “a few extra pounds,” and readers usually presume that everyone is gilding the lily, so that the people of “average” weight are actually heavy, and the “few extra pounds” people are really heavy.
And second, they’ll tell you they love you madly within a very short time.
They may wait six months after that, but eventually, they’ll ask you for money so they can come visit you while their money is tied up because the bank made a big mistake and it has to be cleared up, or something like that.
Maybe if you’re not slim or fit, you think people won’t consider you.
But the truth is, you have to go with what you have.
If you’re much heavier than you said you were, someone meeting you for the first time may just turn right around and decide not to stay. You may also encounter people who misrepresent their financial status.The areas that people fudge the most are their age, weight, and height.Few people (with the exception of a couple whoppers) lie about anything major (like being married as opposed to single).Some of them only want to communicate by e-mail and have all kinds of excuses why they can’t talk on the phone.This is because the Nigerian men who do this would be calling from another country, and they have accents that usually don’t match their picture.
