Hearing someone’s voice for the first time can make or break a relationship. If you don’t like their voice, how could you like them as a human? Even though it seems shallow, we must admit it’s true. This internet user shared their experience with their internet friend. Even though they never met them in person, they spoke on the phone.
At first, they didn’t like their voice because “his voice creeped me out. It was how I imagined a serial killer would sound.” Once they got over that, they started noticing other red flags. The guy told her he lived in the same town but was unable to share anything specific about the town.
She said, “whenever I brought the neighborhood up, he changed the subject. At one point, I asked him what his favorite restaurant on the boulevard was and he hedged, so I made up a restaurant that I said was my favorite. He immediately said that was his favorite too and that he especially loved one of their dishes. He went on and on about this wonderful place that didn’t exist (and there wasn’t a similar one in town, so he couldn’t be confused).”
She immediately called him out. Because he’d lied, he had no way of defending himself. It turns out he didn’t even live in the same state. That’s utterly terrifying. At least she’s nowhere near him (via Ranker).
