Can you fall in love with someone as early as the age of 12? Most people born in the 1980s who can recall the Prince protégé Vanity and Janet Jackson’s janet. era dancers will argue yes. The same goes for Nick, the latest contestant (stop it—this show is clearly playing games with people) featured on Catfish.
On this week’s edition of the show, the 18-year-old Florida resident is hard pressed to meet Melissa, who he claims to have fallen in love with at the age of 12 after “meeting” in a Tila Tequila fan chat room. Excuse my snob, but really, Nicholas? You couldn’t have at least developed the thirst for someone in a classier virtual spot. Say, a TRL message board?
As soon as I heard where they met, I immediately assumed this was going to go all the way wrong for Nick. I was right, although it may take Nick a few years to realize this.
