We all tell little white lies. Some of them you can get away with it. Others are a bit of a stretch. But if you are going to lie about your age by 10 years or your height by 5 inches, there is a very strong chance you will get found out.
Typical coffee date. Very generic. He lives close by and we are patrons of the same Starbucks. Talk about convenient. I like it. I don’t even have to work hard for this one.
Nice guy. Starting to bald a little, which I don’t mind in the slightest bit. I’m actually fond of bald men, especially if they have good head for it. Rubbing the chrome dome is lucky. At least, I keep telling myself that. Ha!
So he is waiting for me. I respond with my text saying I’m here. He instantly greets me.
Now, his profile said 6′ tall. My profile says 5’9″. I’m actually just shy of 5’9″, coming in at 5’8″ and some change. But who is counting hairs? So I round up for good measure. This man is clearly 5’7″. Oh and I’m in flats.
him: “You are a lot taller than you originally said.”
me: “Nope, I’m 5’9″ everyday, all day long.”
him: “Are you sure?”
Is he serious? Do I need to break out a measuring tape in Starbucks to prove my height is accurate and he shrunk at the knees?
If he can lie about something so blatantly obvious that can easily be proven…..what else is he willing to lie about?
