One Bert Show listener is meeting a guy for the first time that she’s been chatting with online for months. The problem? She used her best friend’s picture for her profile picture…and for every other picture she sent him. (Ok, so she sent him group shots that she was in, too, although she never pointed out who she was).
So why’d she do it? Her best friend, (who knew what her friend was doing), is about 30 pounds lighter than she is, and our listener thought she would have lost the weight in time. Things never seem to work out according to plan…
Amy called him on the phone last night to talk…and chickened out (although honestly, we can’t really blame her. Coughing up something like that has to be totally unnerving.)
And then she let it slip: dude traveled from out of town for this date. Ruh Roh, Shaggy.
That one little details totally changed The Bert Show community’s tune…and commence the advice backlash:
Amy finally went on the date – did the dude even show up? Did he run around screaming? Did he throw a drink in her face?
