One of the first guys I started talking to on OKCupid claimed he didn’t have a webcam.
He also sent me a nude pic with the head cropped off (major red flag). He promptly disappeared from my online radar and I never heard from him again (he probably was this guy). Besides, anyone can get it at Fry’s for a couple of dollars.
Right away, I checked out his profile, liked what I read, and sent him a message. In a span of a month, we went through all the online “getting to know you” stages.
Epic emails of a thousand words each turned into daily text chats on Skype.
