The latest Catfish episode was interesting. A guy, who had always been in heterosexual relationships in the past, thought he was corresponding with a transexual male only to find out that it was an actual woman! The woman had been, mainly, a lesbian in the past, and decided to go on a social site for company/friendship after a lengthy illness and having moved to a new city (ATL). They had been talking for 4 years! She appreciated his friendship so much that she sent him money, regularly, and paid his cell phone bill with regularity.
I didn't think there was any question that she was a woman; I have no idea how somebody could have thought she was a man masquerading as a woman, upon hearing her voice and how she talked.
He goes to see her, she is living very well, in her own sizeable house, and confesses to having an 11 year old daughter.
The guy told his best friend that he had been "strung out" over a transexual guy (imagine how HARD that was!) on the computer. The bestie said that as long as it made him happy, OK (who knows how that will really shake down in the future).
The woman seemed really into him, and he seemed like he was very into her. They both ended up going their separate ways; she went back to a woman, and he needed to find out if he was really interested in men. She was a very strong woman, and he was a shaky loser who told her that he didn't know if he would even have been there to meet her if it hadn't been for her giving him regular money. LOSER!!!! I can see him emotionally/financially abusing whomever he ends up with. He seemed like a good guy, at first.
