He was the only guy who would ask me out until I started Internet dating a year and a half later.I did not start dating online because I was lonely or desperate. One fateful night, one of my still single girlfriends was in the dumps about not having a boyfriend.His photo was years out of date and he had lied about his height. He was a midget with a comb-over and the conversational skills of a libidinous teenager.Which is why when I read that in 20 years’ time half of us will be meeting our partners on the internet I was horrified.(Except bisexuals, who are apparently just teases).So you'd think it would be easy to just knock about 25% off anyone's stated attractiveness in an online profile, and move on from there.“His pictures showed him skiing, him on vacation, always clothed and doing something active,” she says.

Meeting him face to face was a different matter, however.
