This has happened to me drastically last night. I had a blind date with a guy I met online. He had warned me right before we went out, after a bajillion texts, that he didn't look like the olympic model from his pics anymore, saying that he had gained 20 pounds since. I figured ''Hey, at 6'5'', he has room to put it". But in real life? It DID make a huge difference. He wasn't fat, but way chubbier than I expected.
This got me thinking. Now I understand what he meant when he warned me about his physique. He actually meant "Hey. I used to train competitively full- time for a year. That's what my body looked like back then". I find this pretty dishonest. Like, I would not use pictures of me from years ago back when I was doing lifeguarding full-time to depict my physique to strangers. Every guy I blind dated (there has been 3) has told me I look way better in real life than in my pictures. I feel like it's rarely the case with guys. What do you think?

I have the same problem with online dating, they usually look way different then their pics, not in a good way and I am almost always told I look way better in person then in pics.
Why people post fake pics to get dates online has never made sense to me, if you can't even be honest about what you look like how are you ready for a relationship?!0
