15, There are programs one can buy/download that do all the editing for you. They have an array of stock pictures or you can upload your own and all one has to do is have the program running while using the webcam and it swaps out your image for the one you picked. There's a rather popular image macro that uses a little boy on Omegle that came from one of these. Granted they're not the best and anyone who knows what to look for can tell, but to the average person they work like a charm. Other th

18- I don't know if its just me, but i can tell the difference between genders especially when one is dressing up/making themselves look like the opposite sex.

Despite how your comment was worded, how would that make OP feel like a bum? More like embarrassed that they believed a fake profile.

Smile back and walk out of the restaurant! You should be mentally prepared though that who you meet online may not be who they claims!

Should have turned the joke back on him by walking up to him and saying, "My goodness. You're.far more beautiful than I had dared to hope." His reaction so would have been worth the disappointment he imposed.
