Reverse catfishing is, by urban dictionary's definition, when someone pretends or appears to be LESS attractive via their online profile than they actually are.
So, say you're going on a first date with someone whom you've met through a social networking or dating site. How would you feel/react if this person turned out to be considerably more attractive in person than they appeared in their photos?

Did they turn out to be a completely different person or do they simply look better in person?
The first case would be iffy, the second one would be fine if not preferred.
I thought it was a common practice to post some of the crappier pictures you have on dating profiles so that you end up exceeding expectations rather than not meeting them.3

I suppose pleasantly surprised? If they looked like someone else entirely, then I would just be confused lol.3
