THE POWER OF THE LIE....

    I'm amazed at some of the lies people tell you online at times... and it is so commonplace to many that they don't even feel awkward about telling them.
    ...and of course being the analyst, I'm curious.

    Was on gay.com for a few minutes this morning. I'm not on there frequently and a guy messaged me and told me it was his 42nd birthday today. I asked him why his profile said he was 32... he response.. "Well I look like it".

    He then told me he was having a birthday lunch with family and wanted me to "be his dessert" later today.
    What a line. The whole thing seemed too coincidental and even though he said he didn't know me......by the time the conversation ended he admitted we had friends in common and he has known who I was.

    Since I viewed this thing with some degree of illegitimacy I didn't bother to mention I have a partner. I just listened and asked him to explain himself. After the conversation I phoned a friend in common and found out that there was no birthday today at all. The whole thing was a fraud.... just for sexual purposes.

    You just have to laugh.

    Do not men of all walks of life do this. Peacock themselves in the hope of getting a root.

    I feel sorry for all those women whom marry a guy, and then finds out, he is not the person he led her to think he was.

    As U see. I am not here looking for a root. So I am not peacocking. But at the same time. Does One really show Ones true personality here all the time? Maybe One does, as One is not one dimensional.

    This medium is the great equalizer...
    where a fat man can be thin an old man young
    and the average guy.... above average

    So guys feel that they can lie with impunity

    I take everything said on here with a Honking Big grain of salt.... unless proven to me otherwise

    Let me put it this way....

    Surely if I were going to lie, I could do better than to invent a 51-year old Borscht Belt comic.

    It's the internet cant you see you can be anything you want icon_rolleyes.gif .

    I'm obviously a brightly dressed flamboyant drag queen on a quest for parodical fame while impersonating Cher.


    Worst thing is when they post fake photos because they are so insecure of their personality that a pretty face has to be used in an effort to try and seduce people. How far do they honestly think that will get them?

    Lying is as easy as breathing for some people. It's a shame really.

    I'm actually 15! And I'm not human. I just say I'm 22 and an Earthling because I look like it. icon_wink.gif

    For me, this medium is a means to an end. It is a facilitator to meet guys. Why would I lie if I was going to eventually meet the guy? It's stupid. Some guys, I think, use this medium with no serious intention of actually meeting in real life. This internet stuff is not real until I am staring at you and seeing you face to face.
