I see some profiles and the first date ideas are something I'd never commit to without knowing the person.
Plus I have met girls overtime who did not match their photos. It can be quite an awkward experience.
I have read online that some guys used completely fake photos as well and I could only imagine how crazy it would be to make all sorts of plans with someone just to find out it was an imposter the whole time.
Why do girls online expect all the crazy stuff I read about? Why not meet up for something simple first so you can at least make sure you're not talking to a phony?

The only online relationships I've engaged in are things that happened not from a dating site, but talking to people and developing friends on a gaming network/forum/or something not devoted to dating. Kind of like meeting someone naturally.. just online and mostly long distance. I think people are more likely to lie if they are insecure or such. I haven't had the problem with meeting someone fake yet that I've garnered interest to. I guess I'm a bit more internet oriented, and you can tell when people are lying majority of the time. I had a friend who used pictures of Zac Efron.. a little.. too obvious there buddy? lol.
If you're worried about it, you could do a reverse image search on their pictures (paste link into search engine then do a search by URL when prompted). A novice will use a model, smarter people use pictures of another boy/girl, probably a bit more good looking than they are, but not professional quality images.
To be honest, I don't really understand it either. If you use a fake picture you're either going to get caught, or make someone attracted to you for your looks that might not be 100% there. If you're on a dating site you should be looking seriously, shouldn't you? So why would you ruin your chances like that, I don't understand either.0
