I met Matt online and we seemed to hit it off enough to plan to meet in person. We set the date, time, and place. I arrived and got a table with a view of the door so I could see when he got there. After about forty-five minutes, someone came in looking around like they were searching for someone. I knew it wasn't Matt because he had sent me pictures. Finally, this stranger made his way over to my table and asked if I was Julie. I told him yes. He explained that he was Matt's brother and that Matt had sent him to take his place because he was stuck at work. I immediately smelled a rat and asked him if he was really Matt? The look on his face said it all. It's too bad, I would have gone out with him if he had just been honest from the start. I hate lies!
