Online dating is the romantic equivalent of eating at Denny's: There's a menu full of tantalizing photos and enticing descriptions, but that Grand Slam breakfast never looks quite as good when it's sitting in front of you.
Just The Facts
- Online daters stretch the truth.
- Skepticism is good.
- Denny's can be, too.
Just another meal at Denny's
Obviously, people exercise plenty of factual calisthenics in their online profiles. And just because Denny's menus may show you a more appetizing photograph doesn't mean you should stop eating there.
The same goes for online dating. Just look through those menus with a healthy dose of skepticism, and maybe your next Grand Slam will be everything that you expected.
