As a modern, independent woman, I know that I shouldn’t feel validated by a man wanting to marry me.But having been on as many bad dates as I have, I felt warm and fuzzy thinking there really was a man out there for me.
Part of what makes dealing with fake people so difficult is that it sometimes takes a little while to discover who someone really is.
Because fake people excel at pretending, it makes sizing him or her up even more confusing.
With five diamonds across the front in a platinum setting, it could pass for a wedding band. Without a man in the picture, I put a ring on it myself.
I looked down at my hand and liked the way it looked.
A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.
It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.
Fake people, however, usually have one clear agenda: to be liked by everyone and to be seen as the favorite, whether among a group of friends or at work.
Someone who is very fake will say negative things about one person but then act like their friend the next minute; agree to hang out socially but later come up with excuses about why they can’t; and cast themselves in the best possible light in every situation.
Fake men and women are extremely aware of social hierarchies, so they are always ranking who is more attractive, smarter, or better liked.
