I Cannot Form an Opinion About Somebody Until I’ve Met Them in the Flesh

How do you know if someone is fake or the real deal? You must meet them in the flesh. Embodied (body to body) reality. Until you’re in the same room as someone, sharing the same air as someone (breathing the same air as them).

And even if you have met someone in the flesh … how do you know what they really do in their off hours? What do they do in their Google Incognito tabs? What’s their browser or cookie history?

Moral of the story:

Put no faith or admiration in a man until you’ve met him or her in the flesh.

And even so … be very very skeptical.
