When it comes to dating, it seems that things are so much more complicated these days.
With online dating and apps like Tinder, there’s been a rise in the number of ‘catfishing’ incidents – where someone pretends to be someone else online, to attract a date.
Usually this involves using photos on a profile of a different person and using a different name.
But recently a woman was accused of "catfishing" and "leading" someone on just for wearing make-up on her face.
And to say she was shocked would be an understatement.
The unnamed woman revealed all on Reddit’s Am I The A**hole forum.
She revealed that she’d been on six dates with a man and she thought things were going well.
However after a weekend backpacking trip, he saw her without make-up on for the first time and then decided they should stop seeing each other.
The woman claims it’s because she has acne on her face.
She shared a photo of the bottom of her face, revealing some spots on and around her chin.
Alongside the picture, she wrote: "Am I the a**hole for hiding my acne with make-up and not telling my potential boyfriend about it?
"I usually cover up my acne with make-up – however that’s the only thing I do on my face make-up wise, so I don’t look like a completely different person when I’m make-upless.
"This weekend, me, the guy and a few of our mutual friends went on a backpacking trip and he saw me with no make-up for the first time.
"At first he didn’t say anything, just looked at me a bit weird. When we were alone, he just told me that he didn’t know I had acne like that.
"When we got home that night, he said that it would be for the best to stop seeing each other because he doesn’t like me anymore. As the very last thing he said that I shouldn’t lead people on like that."
She added: "I feel like I dodged a bullet here, but at the same time it haunts me that he thinks I’m catfishing people and I wonder if anyone else feels the same way?"
Over 600 people came to the woman’s defense, telling her that the man was "shallow".
One person wrote: "You’re definitely not catfishing anyone by wearing make-up. I mean acne isn’t a huge deal for normal people, potential boyfriend sounds like a really shallow guy to break up over something like that."
Another added: "It’s shocking how oblivious some guys can be about make-up! I have WAY worse acne and I wear make-up to cover some of the redness and such, and I’ve had male friends be so shocked when they see me without foundation."
