    Has anyone ever met a fake profile in person?


    Every person I talk to online, I'm always cautious about whether they are representing themselves truthfully. Has anyone here actually met someone who was a fake? I'm curious. How does that work? Like, do they avoid meeting you, eventually give you their real pic, or surprise you when you see them for the first time.

    I'm just curious. Im trying to understand what the point is of posting fake profiles.

    They're absolute losers. Time wasters. I haven't met any fakes on this site (yet) but other sites yes I've wasted some time.

    WHY do people bother doing this? Are they just so insecure about themselves and think a fake pic and a nice personality will make up for the bullshit that they served the people with the real pics?

    It's strange. I'm curious about the psychology behind it. What is the end game? The motive?

    I haven't but a woman I work with did. She was traveling to his town and he kept making excuses to meet her, so she asked me if there was a way I could find out if it was fake.

    Tineye.com found his picture all over the place, some actor from South Africa.
