This strapping young lad attempted to pick up women on social media. Nothing unusual about that, right? Well, he posed as Davenport, Iowa meteorologist Greg Dutra in order to score.

Matt Wendt's little plan fell apart when the real Greg Dutra tweeted at his girlfriend on Twitter, and one of Wendt's prospects started questioning the real Dutra as to why he never mentioned that he was in a relationship.

The resemblance is uncanny.

The whole thing is creepy, but the real Greg Dutra seems to have a good sense of humor about it. Wendt, on the other hand, is facing a possible two years in jail.

It's well-known that being a weather geek raises one's romantic prospects tenfold.

Except mine.
