Well, I sorta have a different story, that was my own fault:
I'd been chatting with several guys online, and they sent me their pics, as I did mine. But goofball that I am, I get them mixed up, and assigned them to the wrong guys!
So one guy really interests me, and we talk on the phone, and I fly to meet him. He's in the terminal waiting area, and... he's not the guy I expected! I did recognize him from his pic, but not the guy I was expecting! And quite frankly, not as good looking. Talk about your major confusion!
But I disguised my feelings, and got into the hired limousine he had waiting outside. (Driven, incidentally, by the son of the woman upon whom the musical "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" is based, and who gave us a signed copy of his autobiography, dealing with living there as a kid!)
So we go to his place, and he's a total doll, even if he's not the guy I was expecting, due to my own stupidity. And you know what? I fell in love with him, and we became partners.
I suppose not the same deception situation we're discussing here, but maybe at times you need to keep an open mind, and heart.
