It’s a guilty pleasure of mine to watch the Catfish TV show! And it was the show, along with my own not so spectacular online dating experiences that inspired me to write about this very specific kind of romance. Depending on your definition of what true romantic love is, your answer to, ” Is it love or a Catfish?” may differ from mine. My answer is, it isn’t love until you know them, regardless of how true their identity is. But, my dear reader, ultimately, no one can really tell you in your heart what you know to be true.
There are always exceptions to the rule. The rule being, if it seems fishy, it’s a total catfish! You could be the lucky one. However, just in case you aren’t the lucky one and you’ve never actually met your love interest in person before, I have 3 other very important questions that could save you some time, energy and heartache.
