Dear, Mik Chiks,
About your advice to Mystery Woman on yesterday’s conundrum--and I quote: Just be sure you don't accidentally get sucked into a dating website under a false name and photo. That doesn't end well. Guess how we know.
A couple of Anonymous Husbands with inquiring minds feel that an explanation is in order.
Dear Anonymous Husbands with inquiring minds but limited memories. We were referring to the time we helped a doctor friend of ours find a suitor on
e- Harmony an un-named dating website. She had very little time, so we wrote up a profile, posted one of our pics (which resembled hers) and then screened the inquiries. And lo and behold, we found a suitable match!—an oncologist no less! But he became a little indignant when we disclosed that it hadn't been her picture or her words in the profile or in the initial back and forth contact.
We explained the situation and humbly and profusely apologized. He accepted, and a date for a date was set.
But then our Doctor friend did some digging on this oncologist who she'd never heard of and who lived within 50 miles of her. Turns out he wasn't an oncologist but a radiologist.
He never apologized.
And we decided that posing as someone else on a dating site is stupid—and all too common.
And Lord knows, we never want to be common.
Anonymous Husbands, we hope this is ringing some bells.
If not, we know of a good doctor—and a lying radiologist.
