Yes, many on dating apps are tired of this experience. It is such a buzz kill too. All the excitement leading to that first face to face meeting is instantly diffused by what the person actually looks like in real life.
People who misrepresent how they look in the present don’t like how they look in the present. They believe that they looked better 6 or 7 years ago and post dating profile pictures that old in the hopes that they are able to attract the best dating prospects.
This won’t ever change when it comes to dating apps. People always do this. To counter it as best you can, tell the person that you want to conduct a video chat with them and use that video chat as your filter.
It’s pretty hard to hide what a person truly looks like when you are looking at them on a video chat. Make sure that you see them clearly and they aren’t trying to play any tricks by hiding themselves in some way on screen.
Get into the habit of doing video chats first and save yourself a bunch of heartache and frustration.
