Michael McCarty, a 20-year-old Georgia Tech student, met his dream girl, a fellow college student, online 5 years ago.
So in preperation for her upcoming visit — when the two will meet face-to-face for the first time — Michael has turned to the Internet for help with something he hasn't experienced — kissing.
McCarty, a finance major, placed an ad on Craigslist asking for "a girl to please teach me to kiss." He says in the ad that his online girlfriend "tells me it's a big turn-off if a guy doesn't know how to kiss, and she even dumped her last boyfriend because of this."
"I want to make a good first impression, but I've never kissed before!"
While many are skeptical about McCarty's intentions, his mother and best friend attest that it is true. "From my being out with him I've never seen him kiss anyone," McCarty's friend Anton Antov told FOX 5 in Atlanta.
McCarty says that "some have asked if I have terrible oral hygiene or something of that sort, so I included a picture of me showing my teeth! I'm pretty normal overall."
"Some people think I'm just trying to get some action,"McCarty told FOX 5. "I placed the ad on Craigslist because I want to learn how to kiss a girl the right way."
"I guess I've been on the computer too much playing video games and not going out and meeting people as much as I'd like to."
