    He wears chinos and black suede trainers all the time and when he tucks his shirt in he reminds me of:
    http://www.hotflick.net/flicks/1998_..._Brown_001.jpg

    I am honestly not a troll. Of course he doesn't look exactly like that character from there's Something about Mary.. but in terms of his posture and stomach and high waisted trousers... he does!

    I met this guy on the internet and really like his personality online.. but his dress sense and the fact that when he laughs he giggles in a really high pitched way... makes me think it was a big mistake getting feelings for a guy online.

    I am really attracted to him online, but not in person! Has anyone else experienced this?

    I met someone on the old FB. We get on so well! Our personalities are so alike, he makes me laugh has good prospects etc. He's perfect in every way except his looks. I cant get beyond that, so we'll never be anything more than friends. Don't worry about it, just talk to him over the net!

    Maybe you shouldn't have tried to date someone online? Never works... How are you supposed to know if you're are physically attracted to them? I know looks aren't everything thing but if you're not even slightly attracted to them surely they'll just turn out to be a friend?

    No it's not.... I didn't mean to. I just met up with him because I really liked him. When I met him and he went to hug me I kind of cringed. Thing is when we talk online I like him again :s

    Absolute balls.

    She likes him online and doesn't like him offline, which means his persona/social skills are pretty good when he's comfortable sitting behind his computer screen, but out in the open he's useless and not really a great person to be around.

    If you're not going to meet up with him again then carry on chatting online it won't do any harm. But if there's a chance that you'll meet up again, or if he thinks there's something romantic going on, try to reduce the amount that you chat otherwise he's going to think he's in when you really don't enjoy spending time with him offline.

    There is a really delicate issue I didn't mention. He came to visit the city I live in and stayed with his friend... I swear the whole week he was here he didn't wash. His hair got progressively greasier and he smelt so strongly of BO by the last day I almost passed out. I didn't say anything because I was too embarrassed to bring it up.. he's very kind and a good person... but the physical issues.. I don't even think he'll change.. he likes to be accepeted as he is. Do you think he didn't wash for a week because he was staying with his friend and (who is some sort of anarchist...) maybe he didn't want to use up hot water and spend other people's money....?

    I would never meet up with someone from the internet before webcamming with them first, primarily because how else do you know they're who they say they are?!
