I am a 69 year old female, divorced in June, retired in January. I have used 7 on-line dating sites and have noticed several things, most of which are not positive. I want to share what I have learned perhaps another woman can benefit from my mistakes.
Around 7-66-68, I was contacted by a man who used 8775 mankeek 68 8776 as his dating site name He is supposingly a widower who lives in Columbus, IN. He said he was attracted to my profile, especially my belief in God. MY FIRST MISTAKE: Giving him my number and then 8775 chatting 8776 with him on phone. (There are reasons that dating sites recommend that you keep your conversations on the site until you meet.) He sent at least 755 messages to me, we chatted both day and night. He supposingly went to work, the gym, church, etc., and contacted me when he 8775 returned. 8776 He portrayed himself as the perfect guy for me. MISTAKE 7: If he seems too good to be true, he probably is: Although there was always that doubt that he was real, a part of me wanted to beleve that I had met a good man. When he went 8775 out of the country on business 8776 he said we would meet when he returned and we would stay in contact while he was gone. That was on 8-69-68. I have never heard from him since. He is now back on tbe dating site and has blocked me. WHAT I DON 8767 T UNDERSTAND: What was his purpose? He never asked for money and no financial info was given. Perhaps others can weigh-in on this? Was he using the information I gave to set-up a female profile to use in order to con older men out if money? Is he some deranged person who sets-up a fantasy world in which he is the perfect man? Is his goal to play this game for his entertainment? I will never again give out my number until we meet. Because of my doubt, my heart wasn 8767 t broken and I never shed a tear. But this guy, (and others like him,) could hurt another woman very deeply. OTHER OBSERVAYIONS: Many men seem to prefer 8775 sexting 8776 to actually meeting a real live female. They ask for nude pictures, and ask questions about what you 8775 like 8776 to do sexually. Perhaps by doing this, they can fantasize that they are the same strong, virile man they used to be, and are having great sex with that hot, perfect woman? Many of the men who DO want to meet talk only about sex. They seem uninterested in anything else. Some want your initial meeting to be in a motel parking lot!!! Last observation: I don 8767 t believe that most women are fooled by the really good looking man from New York, California, etc., who wants to meet pretty obvious it 8767 s a scam. Men seem to be more likely to fall for these than women.
