His bio said he’s 6' 3"…but in per­son he needed a booster seat. Dat­ing app Hinge re­cently coined such fib­bing to make your­self seem more at­trac­tive as kittenfishing— not to be con­fused with catfishing (as­sum­ing a whole new iden­tity). Here, dig­i­ta­lage in­ti­macy and re­la­tion­ships ex­pert Robert Weiss breaks down the rea­sons a man might try to dupe you.

He fig­ures you might choose to ig­nore his white lie and take him home. (3) He thinks that since you fell for him on­line first, his stretch of the truth won’t mat­ter.

IF HE CATFISHED YOU

(1) He tried to gain your trust so he could use or ma­nip­u­late you for his own needs. (2) He wanted to cheat on his cur­rent S.O. with­out get­ting caught. (3) He pre­sented him­self how­ever he wanted to lure in an on­line- only GF.
