So, unless you've been living under a rock, you prolly have heard of Manti Te'o or the online phenomenon of catfish. Catfish is when you meet someone online who purports to be one person but is actually another. Manti Te'o is a Notre Dame middle linebacker who was being catfished for over 2 years....by a dude. I won't go into all the details about the Te'o story...it's twisted and convoluted and the dude who was responsible for it is pretty narcissistic and twisted BUT here are my suggestions for how NOT to get catfish'd:
- If you meet someone online who has an awesome personality AND is fine...you're prolly being catfished. No model is taking to Facebook to meet people.
- If the person you meet has a series of horrific events happen to them like their cat dies, their car blew up, and they got stuck in quicksand, you're prolly being catfished. I mean really, who actually gets stuck in quicksand.
- If they can't FaceTime or Skype with you, you're prolly being catfished. Every 4th person in the world has an iPhone, iPad, or iMac.
Ok, so those are my suggestions on how NOT to get catfished. Do any of you have any hilariously horrific online dating stories??
