ONLINE dating often comes with the unspoken warning that people may not be who they say they are.
A man shared his catfish experience with the world.
Chris Keverian is a fitness fan and digital content creator.
His productions are generally comedic in nature, although the catfishing is no laughing matter.
His TikTok account alone has over 383,000 followers and counts.
He took to the social media platform to share his latest dating mistake in the age of filters and Photoshop.
“When you take her and she looks nothing like her pictures,” he wrote on the video.
He showed himself looking disapprovingly at a casually dressed woman who got into his car – fresh-faced with no makeup on.
He then showed a photo from the woman’s Instagram where she is dressed in glam and a brown satin mini dress.
The woman propped her feet up on Keverian’s dashboard, causing him to shake his head.
“This makeup and filter combo should be illegal,” he wrote in the caption.
Keverian’s video is part of a trend where people jokingly re-enact encounters where they were fished out by a potential romantic interest — a common fear in the age of online dating.
Viewers of the video disagreed with Keverian’s take on the woman’s understated look.
“She’s beautiful, but aren’t you going?” we wrote.
“She looks better than in the picture,” another commented.
“Nah bruh,” added a third. “She looks even better.”
