I've been catfished for a whole 3 months and did even fell in love with a person that doesn't even exist. What a crazy & mindblowing day when I finally woke up from this daydream... It was like the perfect match. Everything seemed to fit. And still, she again & again tried to escape our love. Kept telling me that she isn't good for myself and destroys my life and always canceled our dates very shortly. Saying she was too shy.
All of this made me crazy. If we had so much in common why wouldn't this just work out? Luckily one day I ran into her parents and they kept asking me strange questions which lead to a 2-hour conversation. It turned out that she not only lied to me about literally every point of her life but also to her parents.
What an eye-opening experience and still I feel no hate but actually a bit sorry for leaving her after this. But it is what it is. How could you stay with someone that played you this hard for 12 full weeks?
Lesson of the day: If you are into online dating and your crush doesn't want to date you for quite some time, make sure to do a video call. This could save you a lot of time and a bad bad headache...
