For the last few weeks I have been catfished.
For those who don't know here is the definition from Urban Dictionary.
I should clarify. I was onto the catfishing from the start.
I mean, when you only have 2 photos on your page you're probably a fake.
I accepted his friend request to have a little fun and see what he wanted.
So I played along.
Every morning for the last few weeks he'd private chat with me.
There was a lots of use of the words honey, babe, stud and (ugh) daddy.
One time I asked him to email me a few more pics of himself. And he did.
The same two pics from his Facebook page that I had already seen.
His story was that he's from LA but studying in Turkey.
But his grammar betrayed him like for instance, I wish am there.
Or, I can't wait to be back in LA for to be again in you arms.
I just kept thinking that the truth would reveal itself soon.
And sure enough this morning - 3 weeks later - this happened:
Malaria? Not exactly what I was expecting. But malaria, really?
Oh, and what American puts the $ symbol after the numbers?
Sure I had my fun but now I've deleted him.
You could say I threw that (cat)fish back.
