Rip Snorter, as he has a way of doing, will creep up on you with humor so subtle that it may take a little time to "get it". God, I hate when that happens! Makes me feel "slow".
I refer to my last blog, the internet romance thing, and his advice to my girlfriend that she just ask her internet beau's to "be honest".
Which brings me to the "profiles" posted on internet dating.
If a woman is 57, some will post a picture of herself at 40. "My God, she looks good for 57", you might think.
She might also lie about her age, and then if you get srious and meet her family, she has kids that are 8 years younger than she is.
A man might represent himself as being financially successful, when he's actually on SSI.
A man might say he's 6' tall (but that's only when he has 5" his elevator shoes on)
I'll bet you could come up with hundreds of these examples.
There's a legend here in Arizona, of this infamous lover boy who married 23 women. Sometimes he was married to 5 or 6 at a time. Bilked them all for everything they had, too. Oh, what a charmer!!
The internet dating scene would be a good place to start for this type of guy. And I'll bet if some lonely woman asked him to be "honest", he could lead them right down the garden path.
