Anna Silk as Bo creates a fake online profile from the TV show Lost Girl

So, here’s the deal: I’m writing my online dating profile. Do I tell the truth and go into a date with nothing to lie about? Or do I make myself seem smarter, more beautiful, and more adventurous than I am and then sort it out later on a date? Because, you know, I’m kind of thinking the guys lie a lot and expect you to get over it once you really meet them. So, you know, should I lie, too?

  1. He had constructed an immaculately ragged image. Open the door to his closet – the smells of late nights and mistakes made would rush past you. Homemade hair-cut, glasses slightly broken. All tweed, philosophy, pop culture. Given money, courage and surgeons, someday even his profile would go with his legend.

  2. Lance was remembering his wife when he had first laid eyes on her. It was love at first sight and from that moment on he had said to himself that this was going to be the mother of his children. It was unfortunate that they couldn’t have any, but his years with her had been happy ones, and he considered that a blessing.

    He remembered that she had a beautiful profile, which consisted of a beautifully shaped turned up nose, nicely shaped chestnut colored eyebrows to match the color of her flowing long hair, green eyes and high cheek bones. She had aged well until she became sick.

    The disease had taken care of diminishing all these beautiful features. Hr eyes had lost their sparkle, her cheeks had sunken in and her hair had lost its luster, but her little turned up nose remained intact. Death had given her respite from her suffering and when she died, her countenance donned a peaceful and beautiful aspect to it.
