My other half I met through a dating app and yes he was gorgeous in the pictures on there of him; 1 out with mates in a club and the other 2 just taken a home... it was pouring rain the day I met him and he looked a little different in person; hair wasn't how it was in pictures and he wasn't very much like his profile pictures. After we tarted dating, he opened up and told me the story behind the pictures and his life at those points; it was obvious why he looked thinner and confident then in pictures... It's been almost 2 years now that we've been together and he looks miles different... but it's because he's healthier now and no longer has the need to impress... and as for the hair, he has me shave it right down for him every month. Give people a chance, that's all I say.

I think the one thing that one sides this whole online dating thing is the fact that selfies is a skill. Not just an activity of capturing a moment. With the proper lighting, or proper angle, or proper background. The person can go from a 4 to a 7-9 ..! When you seen them in reality. You see the things they can't hide.
That's why I recommended video chating BEFORE the hang out moment.. It allows you to see more or less what you're dealing with. It can close the deal of decision if you either want to make this girl a date thing, or just shut it down immediately
Be fair.. And have an open mind, if their looks don't match, at lease have a heart to fulfill the missing pieces with their personalities. Because if you play a game based on the outside and don't know the proper rules of playing that game once you look inside. Overall the game would be a dud, and so will your love life
