Someone said :
worm who thinks "being physically unattractive" is an excuse to get dates by any means necessary
But what if it turns out you are more attracted to the real person than to their fake profile?
I am waiting for the episode where that is the case, and the victim of the catfish says "you are a ride, but you lied to me so no thanks..."
Of course anyone who is lying about one's physical appearance to attract someone else, is a liar. But the question is: does the lie really outweigh the physical rejection?
Because in thee shows, it is always "the lie" which is castigated.
In the scenario I suggest, the lie would very likely become insignificant if the catfish is "a ride"! Or at least much less significant. The cat-fished party would easily turn it into a charming from of "modesty" by someone who wanted to be loved for their personality rather than for being a model...
If that is the case, then then the "it's a lie" argument is widely exaggerated when it comes to "ugly" catfishes. Because it is not politically correct to say "they are ugly" or "they are ugly liars", they opt for "they are liars and that is the only reason, I swear, I am not shallow."
