The guy who used fake pictures and then ditched me when we planned to meet sent me some really long messages all in Korean on the only app I hadn’t blocked him on. I read through them a little but only understood a little and forgot about it because basically they confirmed the reasons I knew he had flaked out on me. Last night, though, I met one of my friends who can speak Korean well (actually this guy is white but I think he speaks Korean much better than any of my Korean-American friends, haha) and he translated the messages for me. Basically, the guy saw me and freaked out because I had ‘the most beautiful face in the world’ or something like that and he was afraid to show ‘his true face which could not compare’ and stood there ‘watching me from afar’ until I left (to go sit in the dog cafe and be angry; creepy much??) And he was also afraid of English. And then he ‘had a change of heart’ and called me to meet me half an hour later but I told him to get lost and ‘crushed his soul.’ But it was a hundred times funnier when my friend read it because it sounded very poetic. So, huh, yeah, it wasn’t because he “didn’t like what he saw” after all. (Not like I thought it was for a second.) In fact, maybe I should stop being so beautiful, because it literally scares men away from me! Ha, ha, ha! Also, y’know, I did tell him right after he told me that he lied about the pictures that it didn’t matter and he should just come say hi to me, anyway… if he had lied about his pictures but then still had the guts to come up and admit it I would have at least had some respect for him and we probably still would have at least talked and grabbed some food. Maybe if I saw that he was painfully shy or awkward and felt bad about it we could have even been friends.
Also that jerk obviously doesn’t feel bad about what he did since he has since added two new photos of the same fake person to his profile! Is he just stealing some random attractive guy’s Naver photos? I still don’t understand why he runs this scam or what he plans to do when he meets women in real life and they’re like “Oh hey you are not the same person you are pretending to be the whole time we were talking before, what’s up with that?” Maybe some people would be cool with that? I find that hard to imagine, though.
Anyway, the mystery has been solved. Case closed.
