BTW, I like the SKYPE idea! But it won't solve the "men who claim to be 6 foot tall" problem.
Ever hear of tape measures..?

I wasn't going to respond to this topic, but since you brought up the "height" issue I felt it would be good to post my experience. If you take the time to check out my profile you will see I am "friends only"(annulment has not yet been granted) status. BTW, so is the OP, Keith. A local gentleman contacted me on CM and asked to meet for coffee because he said we have so much in common (both second career SPED teachers). I thought a friendly cup of coffee would be fine. I didn't even notice on his profile how tall he was. I showed up for coffee and he is already there, sitting down. He seemed unusually uncomfortable and he wouldn't stand up, until I was getting ready to leave. When he stood up, he was like 2 inches shorter than me!! When I got home I checked out his height on his profile and he said he was 2 inches taller than me. How awkward is THAT!! Lesson learned: no more "meeting for coffee" until AFTER my annulment is granted.
BTW, photos can be VERY deceiving. I was a professional digital photographer for many years and the things that can be done with photoshop are AMAZING. I could easily drop 20 to 30 lbs off of a person in a photo, as well as 10 years. All of those People magazine covers of movie stars are photoshopped (you didn't REALLY think Jennifer Anniston at the age of 41 looks like she is 26, did you). That is why it was such a big deal when a photo of Jamie Lee Curtis (at the age of 50) was put on People magazine, completely UNTOUCHED.
That being said, I feel the OP is WAY too concerned with the personal appearance of his date. Men in general are visual creatures, but outward beauty is fleeting, and a woman's soul is more pressure than rubies.
Finally, please do not disrespect someone by suggesting that they are a psycho-chick. For all of the CM women: you might want to avoid the poster of this comment; he obviously does not respect women.
...the fastest way to lose a boy is to chase him. I think the same is true for a girl also.
Kathy, I need to disagree; the most profund need of the woman in a relationship is to know that the man is always there for her, and he proves it by chasing after her (in an appropriate way, of course!) And this shouldn't stop after they are married either!
I think she let you know that she really liked you...(can't blame her for that), but you were clear that you are not interested.. I would leave it at that unless she continues to persue you...at which time, you should be very very blunt (but christian and nice) to stop her from persuing, leaving no room for her to think just maybe etc...I had someone show up that did not look like there picture...i was nice, but after the dinner i sent a message saying i didn't feel a connection...since then i will only talk so much before i must meet the person to confirm who they are...
