Most people have heard the term ‘catfishing’ but fewer have heard the term ‘kitten fishing.’ If you’reusing one or more online dating sites, you may be doing it without even realizing it. READ THIS to learn what not to do and improve your odds with the women you contact online
If you’ve done any kind of online dating, you’ve no doubt heard the term ‘catfish’… Where someone pretends to be a completely different person and leads someone on. And while I’m sure that’s not something you or my other readers would ever be guilty of… There is another trend known as ‘kittenfishing’ that’s worth talking about.
What’s kittenfishing, you ask?
It’s where you tell white lies on your dating profile to make yourself appear more attractive.
Here are some examples of how it might show up in your profile:
- Adding a few extra inches to your height
- Using photos where you look younger
- Fudging the truth about your job
- Wearing a hat if you’re balding
- Posting pics of luxury items you don’t actually own
Now this is something most guys have been guilty of… And women too, for that matter. They might knock a few years off their age, or post photos from some time ago.
Since it’s so competitive online and everyone wants to make a good impression, it’s understandable why people do this. But is it something YOU should be doing? While I’m all about honesty in dating, the answer can be a little tricky.
That’s because women realize that you’re probably exaggerating at least slightly… and draw their own conclusions based on that.
So if you were to list your height as 5’10”…
We may assume that you’re only 5’8” or 5’9”.
That’s why as a rule of thumb I’d say it’s okay to add one inch to your height, but no more than that. Because while lying about your height may help you get more matches… what happens when it’s time to actually meet? The last thing you want is to turn up and see disappointment painted all over your date’s face.
It’s the same thing if you’re showing pictures from 5 to 10 years ago. You’re creating false expectations that you can’t live up to. So with photos, ask yourself if you still look the same now in real life (or close enough to it). If the answer is no, then don’t upload it. And if you find that eliminates all of your best pictures, then it’s time to head out and snap some more.
When it comes to talking about your career, it can be tempting to use little white lies here also. You might want to say that you work in finance, when the truth is you’re a bank teller.
Or that you’re a professional actor, when you did one commercial seven years ago.
The point with all of this is that telling the truth might mean a few less matches, which can dent your ego…
But they’ll be higher quality matches because those women are actually interested in the real you. It means when you meet up things are likely to go much better, and you’re not wasting time and money going on dates with women who are expecting you to be someone you’re not.
And if you want to get more matches and dates with women… As well as being able to easily attract women in real life too… Then it’s important to understand what women are really looking for in a guy.
Even if you’re not super tall, rich, good looking or anything else that you might think makes all the difference…
It’s absolutely possible to present yourself as an attractive man we want to meet and get to know.
And as your Wing Girl, that’s exactly what I want to show you how to do.
Once you get this down, you’ll never feel the need to fudge the truth to try and impress women… Because they’ll naturally be drawn to your authentic masculine self.
