People can provide any number they choose, photos can be deceiving or site users can post old photos to back up the lie.Read this email I got from a divorced woman: I went out with a guy who claimed to be 45 when he was really 58.
The fraud typically involves the scammer acting as if they've quickly fallen for the victim so that when they have the opportunity to ask for money, the victim at that time has become too emotionally involved, and will have deep feelings of guilt if they decline the request for money from the scammer.
Re: c) — your looks have everything to do with how a guy feels about you. Men are far more visually driven than women for all kinds of anthropological, biological and cultural reasons. Yes, there are times when men fall in love with a woman who is completely not his physical type because her beautiful soul shined so brightly that it blinded him to her overt physical shortcomings. How can you connect with a guy in person when they won’t even click on your profile pic? But misleading a guy into dating you isn’t the solution — and it only perpetuates the societal message that only thin chicks are datable.
