Jocelyn, a 29-year-old woman living in Ontario, Canada, joined the dating app Bumble with hopes of meeting some newly single men. After she was matched with Myles – a “cute” man her age who lived close by – she became excited and decided to do some research on him to see if he would be a good match for her.

After chatting with one another on the dating app, Jocelyn and Myles exchanged phone numbers. They texted back and forth often, and Jocelyn soon developed feelings for Myles. While texting Myles, something about the exchange felt off to Jocelyn. As an iPhone user, her messages appear blue on her screen while texts from Android users display as green. Therefore, she knew it was him when she saw his texts were green.

Jocelyn began to doubt Myles’s authenticity when she remembered something from his dating profile. Myles had a picture on his dating profile of him wearing an Apple Watch. I was confused as to why he would have that product if he didn’t also have an iPhone since most people use to link the two together in order to maximize connectivity.

“Welcome back to another episode of. Could dating be any more fun?” Jocelyn said on her TikTok video.

“I don’t really give him too much information about myself. I’ve definitely chatted with people too long on the app in the past, so I’m like, I’m not doing that this time. He says we should get dinner sometime, and I’m like, ‘Great,’ because I don’t want to talk in the app. I want to meet in person and see if I even like him. I say yes to having dinner. He says maybe sometime this week. I say sure, sounds good to me, and I give him my number and say text me when and where. He texts me pretty quickly being like, ‘Hey, it’s so-and-so.’”

Jocelyn was immediately skeptical of Myles when she saw his text appear in green; since he had an Apple Watch in his profile picture, she assumed he must be an iPhone user.

“So I do a reverse image search of some of the pictures he used on his profile, and what do we have here? An Instagram model from New York!” she said. That’s how she found a profile for a Brooklyn-based man named Ron. “I live in Ontario, so math’s not mathing. The guy I matched with is pretending to be somebody named Myles — not Ron, the actual guy who’s in the picture. Thankfully, I hardly spoke to this guy and invested zero percent of my time, and have not even told him yet that I know that he’s catfishing me.”

Fortunately, this Canadian woman realized she was being catfished and stopped things before any damage could be done.
