Instead, the person you’re messaging has just stolen a picture off the internet of the most ‘normal’ looking celeb he could find.
Tinder, OKCupid, Plenty of Fish are all standard apps you'd expect to see on a single person’s smartphone. Now, having your own ‘oh, we met on the internet’ story is just as romantic as meeting IRL (in real life).Only yesterday, a court heard how a group of women using were allegedly conned out of £220,000 by a gang posing as ‘attractive middle-aged men’.One woman, Suzanne Hardman, was reduced to tears as she recounted how ‘James Richards’ conned her out of £170,000 – her life savings. And there are ways we can all be tricked - even those who think they're clued up about online dating.My friends tell stories of guys who ended up already having girlfriends, and - the most common - those who promise relationships, but leave after just one night.She would very blatantly shoot them down and yet they would continue to message her.
Obviously, for most women this doesn’t come as a surprise whatsoever.
So if a man wants to attract a girl, all he has to do is demonstrate that in his profile pic, right? It does suggest that he’s trying to overcompensate.
Why does he have to go to such (extreme) lengths to try to attract women?
In simple terms, when they start saying, “Since you came into my life baby, I have looked forward to each sunshine” - as the fake ‘James Richards’ did - you should think again.
2) His profile pic looks a lot like Robert Pattinson This is not a miracle – you have not found a younger, real version of Mr Twilight.
Oh, and if he ever asks you for money - say £170,000? 4) He’s posing with a tiger This is so common that it even sparked a Tumblr dedicated to ‘Tigers of Tinder’.
