In this week’s episode of Catfish, Max and Nev are contacted by 21-year-old Tyler, Texas resident, Lauren, who says that after eight years of corresponding with Derek, whom she refers to as “the love of her life,” it is now or never in terms of actually meeting each other in person.
Now, she claims she met him randomly on MySpace, but all I could think was, “You met him on MySpace and y’all haven’t even exchanged a handshake, much less fluids, via Facebook?” Plus, isn’t there is a whole new MySpace out there now thanks to Justin Timberlake?
Basically, Lauren doesn’t have real friends, because if she did, she would’ve got a membership, or at least someone else’s password, to Match.com. Also, therapy, because anyone who thinks a man who kept you at bay for eight years is going to take care of you and your kid needs a fixer of the Frasier Crane variety. This could’ve prevented her sitting her parents down to say, “Mom and Dad: I’ve been playing myself since the original My Space.”
