Fake dating profile pictures...why do they do it!!!!!!

So I was due to go on a date with a guy...we set a date and I said it would be good idea to exchange numbers. I had a feeling I should ask and thank God I did...wats app picture is another person! I am always weary when there is one profile picture and I was proven right on this occasion.
Same thing with another guy a few months back..although he had a few pictures online as soon as we were on wats app he said let me send you a picture. He looked 30-40 years older.. a grand dad holding a baby...I couldn't believe it!

Im thinking that's why some men write if you don't look like your picture your buying the drinks until you do! It works both ways I guess.

It's the deceit that angers me...what do they expect when you meet for you to ignore the obvious !!! How can you just rock up to a date and think nothing of it!

I'm so angry because I wouldn't post another persons photo and pretend it was me to attract someone...rant over...thanks for listening.

Yeah, I don't get it either. I know you get some people who just like the excitement of playing around online and pretending they're someone they're not, but you also get those who want to meet up and don't seem to understand why you might be put off that they're not who they said they are confused
There are some very, very odd people online!

Women do it as well, it was as if a different person turned up when they met. My colleague reckons in hindsight the picture was at least 15 years old.
