Several years ago I was chatting on an online dating site with a man who claimed to have a graduate degree.
When I asked him what his degree was he revealed that in reality he had spent six years in community college repeatedly starting, but failing to complete, programs.
Women appeared to used this form of deception more than did men.
His comment was, “I could have been a doctor by now!
” To which I responded, “Good bye.”No one likes to be deceived by a person with whom you hope to one day develop a trusting relationship.
