Adam is hanging out for the next hour, lending his expertise on online dating etiquette.
Like the over-Photoshopped profile images that make you look like Brad Pitt’s stunt double, or listing your occupation as “high rollin’ baller” (even when you are hardly high rolling and still live with your parents). That's just as bad as trying to airbrush your picture with graphics software. You should not be embarrassed of who you are at all! But lying to get a date is not going to get you a second one.
It’s only proper to present the same image online that you can promise in real life.
The movie is about a guy who uses his wild imagination to escape his lackluster real life.
Say hi to Adam Huie, CEO of the free dating app Let's Date.
Described as "the Instagram of dating," Let's Date allows you to make a "dater card" that describes a bit about your personality and interests.
Users browse cards and click "Let's Date" if they're interested, which opens up the ability to message one another.
Prior to Let's Date, Adam was part of the team that developed Tinder, another uber popular dating app.

I think Photoshop has singlehandedly changed the way people connect online, thanks to its ability to trick you into seeing something that isn’t really true (much like alcohol). Not a problem, just find a photo of the ripped abs I like online, blend here, erase there, and while I’m at it, move my image so that I’m standing in front of that new Tesla. Sadly, my mannerly friends, falsifying how you look for your online profile is never going to work in the long run.
Of the dozens of different online dating sites out there, each one has the same goal: To connect like-minded people and encourage relationships. Click save and , I’m now a good looking, ripped, rich, happening young man. So I shave off a couple years too, while I'm at it. Do you think a potential love interest will be inclined to trust a person who shows up to a date 30 pounds heavier or lighter and with far less hair than their online photo?
However, in an effort to achieve that goal, many users of these sites misconstrue the fundamental practices of what it takes to make a connection.

Or if they show up driving a beat-up Corolla instead of that six-figure ride they so proudly showcased? The same goes if you post a photo of yourself that is severely outdated.
