doriangrey77 saidIs it possible? It's surprising how many men seriously believe this (no offense).
I used to believe it until I met my first online crush in person. Although he was fine, he was nothing like what I had imagined, even with accurate posted pictures of himself and after having had numerous, lengthy online conversations. In person--'for real'--he wasn't my type at all.
Someone in person will *always* be different than what you've imagined based on online encounters. This will happen even if he is being honest. It will even happen if you think you aren't making up things about him in your head--because you are. You can't help it.
Occasionally--rarely, actually--he will be better in person than what you imagined. But even then he'll be different than your preconceived imaginings.
If you're ever interested in either friendship or a b.f. relationship with someone from online, you should meet him in person at the first opportunity--preferably after only a couple of online chats. The sooner you meet someone in person, the less chance you have of making stuff up in your head that will, by definition, almost always be inaccurate and therefore, disappointing.
