Hi, OK .. I have a quick rant. Please indulge me. I saw a profile on line and the guy was successful and seemed to have diverse interests. I don’t normally date someone without a photo … but we emailed a couple of times and this person seemed more action oriented. He wanted to meet in person instead of spending months emailing.
I tend to like to email and it did not always work out after meeting in person. So, I thought a change in strategy might be worthwhile. After a couple of emails and 1 phone call we agreed to meet for drinks and appetizers.
Now, his profile said he was 5’9″ had dark brown hair, green eyes and had an athletic build. Perhaps I am wrong, but I expected a guy with hair. I walked into the tiny bar and there was one bald guy at the bar. I stood there and finally he turned to me and said, “Mariann?” I said, “yes.” He smiled and said, “It’s Peter.” Shocked, I said, “Oh. Well … hello.”
I have no problem dating someone who is bald and have done so. But why oh why would someone say they not only have hair but assign a color to it when they are as bald as a pool tip? I just don’t get it … don’t they think the person will realize their ommission or lie … ?
Why do people do this … Lie about the obvious?
If you can educate me or give me some insight, I would truly appreciate it.
Mariann — sorry, it was not as short a rant as I thought!
