Photos Don't Tell All

I met this girl online not too long ago. She was really cute and seemed like she had a lot going for her. In her pictures, she was blonde, athletic, and very sexy. She told me she moved a lot but had decided to stay put for awhile and find a boyfriend. After a few weeks of talking, I decided to meet her. Little did I know that it would be one of the most shocking experiences I have ever had. I showed up ready to take her out to dinner and have a good time. She opened the door, and I was shocked. She looked nothing like what I saw in the photo. She was overweight, and it looked like she had just gotten out of bed. I didn't want to be a jerk, so I went inside anyway. I didn't want to be mean, but I told her that she wasn't what I had expected at all. She said that she was four months pregnant and asked if I had a problem with that. Again, I was shocked. I could barely reply. I told her that I was happy for her, but that there was no way I could date her considering that she lied, and that there was no way I wanted to deal with a kid. She got mad and said that I was shallow and didn't care that she was pregnant. I just stared at her in amazement and walked out. I never talked to her again. I later found out she moved again. I can only hope that no other unsuspecting guys fall victim to her like I did.
