He said was a coworker of his company. It passed about days until he got the money i sent, when i asked him about the money, he just told me: you know there are bank restrictions but i let you know when i get it.
I was tracking the money and it was withdrew. I was terryfied and calm at the same time, because i was thinking i made something to help him, but i was wrong.
Another week passed, and he summitted me a email with an attached file of a pre contract with a huge amount of money he will paid for his services to an oil shore company called Bristoil Offshore Services Ltd in Glasgow, Scotland, United Kingdom. I accepted to be his companion. But he said he will let know when payment was ready. I sent to him videos talking to him, singing to him, i wrote love letters, dedicating songs, i showed him what i wanted to cook for him, even intimacy by phone call, and i feek ashamed of myself for that etc.
But he never asked me for videocalls, i asked him to plan a date for meeting each other, coming to my hometown, asked him to show me the places in Scotland he was visiting in his free time and he avoid every time i asked for this another red flag and in this moment, i was starting to suspecting about him, i loved him too much but He was still a mystery for me in almost two month relationship.
Finally, 4 days ago i wrote this letter, he told me payment was ready and the company asked him to get my bank account information to deposit the payment. I looked for this russian man IG account and i saw all the pictures this guy sent to me pretending to be another person. I have contacted to this russian man for warning him about scammers using their pictures for deceiving woman like me.
Fortunately, he replied me and gave me adviced to verify information about someone i recently meet, and he will notice to online dating websites.
To end this horror story, i faced him, i showed him the fake profiles and the real account i was stealing pictures to lie to me.
I told him i notified to the russian guy and if he tried to damage me more his bussiness will be ruined. He was shocked about i accused him with this russian guy, he wanted to know how i could talked to him. I blocked him in every possible media to avoid him. I still feel scared about he can find me o try to blackmail me or use my pics or data for scamming someome else. I pray God protect me from these evil people.
I have lost, but i believe i lost less than i would have lost if continue this fake romance. I know God will give us justice for all this suffer. And i know i will be able to love again, in a healthy way.
Thank you for creating forum. Being a victim of a scam is a lonely and desperate place. This experience cost me almost everything, including my life, and it is very-very hard to find closure or healing. Maybe sharing my story would help. It all started with a simple Thank you message from someone who seemed Florian, an recently discovered actor. Instantly, I did think it was a scam yet I replied. My initial reaction was to uncover this fraudster, report it to his management and help others.
Within a few weeks he was telling me how he was in trouble with his management and his bank account was locked as a result. That never happened and I suppose that made me feel even sadder. I knew people with similar stories who got a response and a resolution from his management company.
One girl even received a video where Florian himself thanked her for reporting and helping to stop his name being misused. I was sad and I wanted to let my scammer know that I know he wasnt Florian and that I blocked him. My heart sunk and I thought my god maybe it is really him and how could I be so disloyal. I was not asked to pay, I just knew about the problems and I was offering the money simply out of love. Naively I hoped I do this, his troubles will easy and we can meet.
Right from the start I had this desire to face him so my doubts will ease. Little did I know that was the beginning of a year long journey where more money was needed. Within 3 months I had 3 credits cards maxed out, 2 overdrafts and a loan with digits. And strangely the money I parted with wasnt so hard. I simply loved this person, I loved every message he sent.
I was replying instantly, nothing mattered. He became my life. It was almost painful to carry all of this love inside me and not being to able give it to him in person.
I simply loved this human being through and through. The loving words, his beautiful soul, his gentleness, even his anger when I started to feel difficult. And I was difficult. And ultimately, that was what drove me to a place where I had nothing but painful thoughts of ending my life. I fought against it hard, and I fought with him not to do this to me. Nearly a year passed this way, and I was beginning to feel very unwell, mentally exhausted, suffering from anxiety that was lasting days now.
I faced the consequences of my debt too. I was hardly able to make payments, pay for my bills, at times even have the money to by food. And I was ashamed, I was ashamed to tell him that. I still sent even the last of my money, I still went and got the steam card, with every purchase crying in my car, absolutely helpless.
I hid it all from everyone, and I think that was the most painful thing I had to face. To lie to my family, the family I loved very deeply. I stopped helping them so I can help my love. And all I wanted in return is pace of mind, not having to find out from Instagram where he was, what he was doing.
I simply felt so much hurt by the fact that I have sacrificed everything and in return I can not be trusted enough like a proper couple. I was pleading constantly with him not to do it, as each post became a almost trauma to my already fragile and vulnerable mental state. Yet, I still tried to show my loyalty and despite these posts, I still wanted to trust and I still loved him very much. And I felt guilty for being this way, not accepting him for who he is.
It was almost as Florian did not even matter, if it was him or not, I simply loved. But my depression made me face so many negativity despite the love I became nasty and said things I felt were suffocating me.
Only because I was hoping for a little gesture of him to do something for me. I was begging him to be worth at least a phone call. With one single call my doubts wouldve disappeared and none of the bad things needed to happen. And it never came. I had to make a choice of walking away and save me.
And i survived. I rebuilt, i work 3 jobs to pay my debt and it is the single proud moment i am able to feel. I protected my love, i fought for my love, i nearly died for this love. Now i want to work on a new year, a new, better me. I want to be the person who can love and respect the person i love.
After all I am worth a good, happy life. And I am worth a love that would love me just as much as I love. BACK TO TOP. Most of this people claiming to be military personels on dating sites are scammers. You find them on every dating sites , also on instagram.
I advice you to always insist to see your alleged lover before any financial commitment. There is another Nigerian who is scamming using dating sites in China and Malaysia. I was friend by a guy called Ricky Ng. Claimed to be aviation engineer from Us gorgia. I run through google image apparently he also use insta account under different name John Wong. While i was friends with them, i actually secretly seatch what they did on fb, he apparently appear to inderstand Indonesian.
So i suspect this was another scammer gag from asia. I able to talk to him on messenger and his english is not fluent like american born chonese he claimed to be. The site they use on insta name john wong, i was able to mag him on whatsup, and the msg on whatsup seems to be answered by different person.
Like a gang of people doing different type of task. One catching in front insta , other replying msg. Many tome i caught they didnt understand what i am trying to say. Perhaps they were not from english speaking background.
I confronted them that they sound different each tome perhaps they different person. They blocked me immiditely. Is that this a paid theme or did you modify it your self? God cares for scammed women. But an experience like this that left you feeling totally vulnerable and bruised is a good place from which to start again with Your Maker. I am a recovered survivor so I know. Forgive your scam love and yourself too, see the bigger picture, both of you are on different assignments.
The scam experience is not final. Take it as a chance to let God bring His best in You. Stop blaming yourself. You have a deeper need that the scammer easily connected with. Let God embrace you with His unconditional love. I read all posted stories and comments and thank God and Jan on this site!
Met my scammer on LinkedIn in February, construction engineer from USA, now in Russia, personal contract. Texting on WhatsApp. Of course, extra payments needed, first for insurance, after that for custom seizure.. Courier service is fake. Lack of funds, breaching contract, undelivered package…excuses for money extortion and not coming to meet.
Guess, keeping me in the game just in case… I shared informations on ScamWarners. com hoping it will help potential victims with red flags when make checkings on the web. Did you receive messages from people from rich countries asking them to send them some cashless ones? And so blindly I fell in love with him over a while and I never knew he was a scammer. com and ipostservice deliveryman.
I was destroyed by this bastard, now I am bankrupt. I kept paying and never got the damn package. Scammers are everywhere, so we really need to be careful especially in dating sites. Tinder, Asian dating. I found out also that she even made love with a foreign guy twice as her age just because of the money.
So we better have to be careful especially those person we encountered online. My heart goes out to you all who have been so hurt by this activity. I thought I was totally scam proof having been a criminal public prosecutor for 25 years. the sophistication of the scam nearly caught me out. He never directly asked me for cash but a clear shot to get me to money launder. I said no- twice! I am very cynical now and start from the premise they are all scammers until proven otherwise!
I have a story to tell. It is similar to the ones I had read in my this with the exception that I am still in contact with the scammer. I know it fills an empty place inside to be talking regularly with someone. What must be kept in mind is that their motivation is not to similarly fill that empty hole, but it is solely a business strategy to build a relationship so they can get you to part with your money.
so be very careful.. He was full of loving caring comments never in my wildest dreams did I think it could happen to me Well it did I am hurt ,angry and very disappointed in myself. This is really sad. Scammers are everywhere especially in dating sites. So i think before getting involved with any body online, we really need to do some background check and loyalty test so that we really know who we are dealing with. We really have to be careful especially nowadays that the internet is booming and online dating is a trend.
You can go into your local police station to file a report. Take any documents you have as evidence. If you are Australian, also report it to ACORN, search on the web , or just do a web search for how to report scams to find how to report scams in your country.
Unfortunately, police may not seem to do much…. I am currently reading your book, Jan. I am not yet ready to tell my story, but I will eventually to help the healing. Your words are chillingly like my experience, even down to his use of some of the same expressions.
Your book has profoundly impacted me. I thank you for your display of courage and resilience. Five months of therapy has not given me near what you have given me. Thanks Connie, it is gratifying that the book is proving useful to you in moving through the next stage of your recovery process. Take care and be gentle with yourself. Wow, my heart goes out to all of you, I pray that God heal your broken hearts, and that he protect you in the future from such sickly uncaring soul.
I just got myself in a similar situation only praise to God there was no money involved. But one day the man named Danny Marco sent me an invitation through my Fitbit and so I though it was someone who was interested in running or working out.
After a few days he send me a message to go to the hangout app, because there we could talk better so I did. The first time in that app he talked about his job that he was an independent worker for Marathon Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico.
The first texts was about how he was so in love with me by just seeing my profile picture, and that he wanted to find a wife and I was it. I was aware of all that he was saying was not real, but here is the thing the are smooth with their words. The beautiful poetry that just melts your hear.
The romance that only in the movies can be found, then you being lonely and vulnerable is where the get you. He was melting my heart with such beautiful word. Please if you have a friend or a love one telling you to be careful and that they believe its a scam PLEASE listen to them, they are not in the middle of the web and the can think better than us. I blocked him from everything including my fitbit and deleted my hang out app.. May God bless you all and keep you safe.
I am so happy to find this site to see that others have been subjected to a romance scam just like me. I think it will be good therapy for me to tell my story and get it out there. Live in Houston, Tx. I do not do Facebook and have never been on a dating site either. But I am a professional, so am on LinkedIn. Out of the blue, one day, a nice man contacted me, via email, stating that he had run across my profile while searching for someone else, thought I had an interesting profile, and politely asked if we might get to know each other via friendly correspondence.
My profile does list my email address, so that was not a flag for me. I was having a really stressful day at work, so this was a bit of a sidetrack from the stress, so I thought what the heck, and replied. So began a world win on-line romance. The pictures he sent were of the most handsome Italian man I have ever seen in pictures. From email exchanges, we seemed to have enough common interests that sparked my interest.
He was charming, intriguing, and romantic. He sent me many romantic music videos. We talked on the phone as well as emails and texts. He completely knocked me off my feet and I feel hard for him in no time. He said all the right things I needed to hear, but had not heard in a long time. I had not been in a relationship in well over 10 yrs. How could I possibly fall in love with someone before I actually met them face to face is what I kept asking myself, but I did fall in love with him.
He was able to reel me in like a big fish. And it moved very fast. Within a week we were expressing our love for each other, and talking about meeting. It was very exciting and he made me feel young, and special, and oh so happy. He also started talking about his business more. He had been working on a huge Wine Contract for months, with a client in South Africa.
The deal finally came through and he left for South Africa that following week-end to finalize the deal. It was all very exciting to me. And, we continued to email and talk the entire time. All the while, I was falling more and more in love with him. He kept saying we would have a beautiful life together after this deal, made plans for him to fly to Houston as soon as he got paid.
We even planned where we would go on our honeymoon. Yep, it went very fast. Then, on Day 18 of our romance, I got hit directly in the face with the most devastating surprise of my life. He texted me and said it was urgent and needed to talk to me. I was totally blindsided since I never thought for a second that everything he had said to me was all part of a scam. After I caught my breathe, I finally told him I did not have that kind of money to give to him.
In the end, he called or emailed me over the course of the next few days asking for the money, saying that if I truly loved him, I would help him, even if I had to get a loan on my home.
Fortunately for me, I kept my wits and did not give in to sending him any money. Even though he still swears he has been honest and truthful with me, and it was not a scam. After reading about all the stories on this site, I feel very fortunate that I did not give into him. However, I am still a wreck emotionally. I felt that I was in love with him and wanted to be with him the rest of my life. I still have the urge to call him to make sure he is O.
I know, that is sick. I guess I am still a victim too……. If it makes you feel any better, I just received an email yesterday from the very same Jim Beckmann, and your post has helped to save me from a possibly similar fate. Wine Merchant, contacted me via LinkedIn, etc etc. I noticed a few indiscrepancies with the email address so have been scouring the internet for information and am so grateful to find your post!
All the best and I hope you find the real love that you truly deserve. In the meantime, stay suspicious of all online characters sad truth. Hi MAC, I am glad that my post kept another person from getting hurt the way I did. I am just curious, did he ever send you any pictures? I just wonder if he is still using the same pictures he used with me. And than you for letting me know that he is still on the prowl. Oh my word! I got an email today, 20 Feb, from Jim Beckmann.
Also the whole story how I caught his attention while searching for an acquaintance on LinkedIn and would like to get to know each other more etc. I am so Greatful to have found this website. It is just sad, and I am so sorry, that this person had to break your heart like this. At first I thought it hilarious that he thinks I am pretty, and I have to admit it is very flattering to read this.
But, something was bugging me from the start, and this got worse during the day. And more and more things did not make sense. First, he said we are connected on LinkedIn…. not the case. Also, there is a spelling error in his surname for the name appearing in the email, and a few other things….. fortunately I am a very sceptical person. Thank you too, for letting me know about your encounter with the infamous Mr. Now I know it was definitely a scam.
Hi Pat A. I am afraid that I have been scammed as well. My story is very much like yours, but my romance has been going on much longer. I would be very interested to get in touch with you to compare notes. Please look for my name at Linked In. Regards, Ingrid Hastad, living in Stockholm Sweden.
My friend is being scammed. She has fallen head over heals in love with a man who wants to marry her. She thinks they are going to get married as soon as her divorce is final. It was a cash parcel because that is how they were paid. He is a widower from UK, has a son in boarding school and is an engineer on a ship in??
She has no idea where he is due to security. She is supposed to pick him up at LAX along with his son, after the cash is delivered by a diplomat. She has been receiving emails from the diplomat and the cash is supposed to be delivered on Thursday.
As hard as I try to convince her that this is a scam, she is still texting him and accepting all the emails from the so called diplomat. Sebastian Howard was his name. He must really believe women are stupid. I decided to play with him a bit. I asked him when he went to the War College in Jacksonville, Fl. He said a long time ago. I asked him how he like Jacksonville and did he get a chance to enjoy the mountains.
He said that he was originally from an area that had no mountains so he loved them. By this time I was about ready to wet my pants I was laughing so hard. First, the War College is in Montgomery, Alabama.
Jacksonville, Florida has NO mountains-they have beaches. And the best….. you cannot be a General in the Navy. You are an Admiral. I finally told him, look goof. If you want to scaam someone atleast get your info correct. I happen to be the wife of a Naval Aviator so I do know a bit about how the military works.
The second guy sends me a message saying that I am the most elegant, beautiful woman he has ever seen and he wants to have a relationship with me. I was too tired to play around with him but the next one will get my full attention. We do constantly get the phone calls supoosedly from the IRS saying we will be arrested at once if wwe do not comply with them. I just tell them to come get me. Watch the terminology. Do they speak like the area they are supposed to be from.
The first guy that contacted, I knew at once that English was not his first language. Do anything you can to trip them up. Ona positive note though. My sister did meet a man on the internet that did turn out to be a millionaire. He actually is the CEO of an International Company and makes a million a year. They married about 3 years ago and he has given her the most wonderful life.
She was married before to such a jerk. Men should always offer to help you, not the other way around. Good luck! My story is not all that unlike others. I am a male I was scammed by a woman posing to be an army sergeant to come home soon. She sent pictures of her young beautiful self and yes I am a year-old typical mail. I have been to a recent break up or is recovering from that 15 year relationship.
Already been treated for depression taking meds and going to group therapy weekly. But successfully employed for over 20 years, homeowner wear some savings and retirement and everything I own paid for. So when this luscious sweet talking affectionate woman proposes to me I guess I went into some sort of zone.
She presented a certificate that looked official to me and I looked up the company online and they did exist. I am beside myself and she acts as if she is to although still declaring her deep love and blah blah blah for me.
She says she will talk to her army commander and ask him if he can help. Her and Army commanders plan after talking to a banker friend is having me run around buying iPhones and Mac Pro book charging them to credit cards 5 of which after I gave over my identity this Commanders friend created. I am to ship them overseas for sales with the proceeds going back on credit cards to wire money to get this shipment to me so my love and money then come home.
Well my last wire went out Nov. Most of which is credit card. I cry everyday. Some days it is very hard to focus. I live in Texas and from what I can tell unless the credit cards companies come at me real real hard I can keep my homesteader home , most of my things but will have to make a No credit for 10 years.
And if I get real lucky the credit card debit would be released. Not sure on any of this but from reading and talking to people this is what I gather. It would be very difficult. So I go to my group therapy weekly, take my meds, attend church weekly. Pray and write letters to God. I try to hope for some sort of do able future without so much suffering and isolation. Hope is not easy to have in the midst of this. But I know NO MONEY TO STRANGERS. Most days I go around with a big knot in my stomach until I can cry it all out.
Then I feel better for a while until the fear, anger and shame return. If your a praying person reading this , I ask that you stop for 30 seconds and ask God to send me relief and help for as long as I need it to get through this horrible ordeal. I believe my roommate is being scammed. He contacted her on either Facebook or POF. He is in Dubai as an engineer. He flew there after sweeping her off her feet in less than 10 days. They talk on the phone all hours. She sent sexy pics and he sent flowery poetry.
She has fallen in love. She could have come up with it in time but he needed it then. He yelled and berrated her horribly. Then he threatened to blackmail her to her son as well as on Facebook. She was heart broken.
Not angry just so hurt. They broke up but he is contacting her again. Apologizing for everything and again proclaiming his love. I made a copy of this site and I plan to show it to her. Hi Cristin, yes a familiar story. Please show her my site and my book. All the details of what happened to me are there… let me know how it goes. Every second of every minute of every hour of every day, I wonder how was it possible? I was a victim too.. Nowadays i just told him off bluntly that i know the truth and he is just an evil scammer.
He kept saying he is a good person and love me bla bla.. and i replied i am broke and its because of you.. he kept asking me to send him pics of me pointing 3 fingers into the cam or doing Certain stuff.

What I have learned from our dating experience is that a lot of patience, humor and laughter are required to keep the flames strong in online dating. Also, the occasional sexy dance sent by Skype keeps the passion strong.
Despite the long distances, the poor Skype connections and the language barriers, I have found the one for me. We wrote to Joseph, and when he wrote back, he asked to meet us at James Beach, a popular Venice bar and restaurant. Of the entries and 10 personal responses, these were the only guys we ever met from that ad. His roommate Mike and I hit it off, talking all night. The next day, they invited us over to barbecue. After kissing for the first time, Mike said he was going to marry me, and I laughed.

So I'll gloss over the private next night. And third night. And that weekend we hung out. By the end of the weekend we were basically just boyfriend and girlfriend. We never went through a "dating" period except for that first night. Fast forward a year and a half and we were exchanging wedding vows. She is a wonderful woman. I have never met anyone in my life that I so instantly felt a bond with. We understand each other wordlessly and I love her with all of my heart.
They met over AOL Instant Messenger and neither is a spambot:. One day at work, I started getting some harassing IMs from an account I don't recognize. It takes me all of thirty seconds to realize that it's my little sister who was away at college messing with me. Calling her out to much denial resulted in IMs starting up from her actual account, with a casual, "What's up?
Suddenly, another random screen name starts harassing me again, with jabs and humor that can only have come from my sister. As it was a slow day, I roll with it, because really, I've got nothing else to do until lunch, anyway. Well, after a while, my sister gets bored, and fesses up that she had been using her roommate's account—and then had had said roommate jump online with her account to pretend to be my sister.
The third person was their other roommate, who had gotten back from class and thought, "Oh, that looks like fun! Let me jump in too! That's where things started to go all sideways for my sister. See, this other roommate who, along with the other girl, are also teammates of my sister on their college soccer team , has already had to endure over two years of my sister telling her how much like me she is.
When she said, "Oh, I need to meet your brother! The plan had worked right up until the great IM incident of You see, after the hubub had died down, unbeknownst to my sister, this other roommate and I sorta kept on chatting. We would IM each other all hours of the day and night. Long conversations. Sometimes banal, sometimes deep. Always awesome. Well, it turns out one of my IM buddy's favorite NYC bands was playing down here near DC at a venue only a few blocks my my apartment building.
We'll go see the band, have a little after-party at my place; a perfect weekend! Then, of course, I had to tell my sister. the absolute icy chill in her voice when she growled back at me "You invited my friends down for the weekend? Come on over if you like! Well, we never got to see the band, as of the three girls, only my IMing buddy was 21 yet the other two both had a few weeks to go , and the club wouldn't let them in.
So we wound up going to Fuddruckers instead, having milkshakes, then going back to my apartment to play Cranium and drinks. As it turned out, the girl and I completely and totally clicked. We were up all night talking and then making out long after the other two had passed out in my living room. We exchanged numbers that night, both realizing we'd found someone awesome. That led to a long-distance romance that, after a year and a half of dating, resulting in me asking her to marry me.
We've been happily married since Believe it or not, that couple is not alone. Another AIM meet cute :. We met online Waaay back in the old days -dial up AOL. Had a number of IMs thats' we hip kids called them at the time , and then met for drinks. I asked her to marry me two years later; at midnight of the millennium, she said yes! And here we are, 14 years later. A few years ago I looked up the origins of the word tenure, she was not too please when I announced I thought I now had tenure.
Kinda wanna download Tinder, but kinda don't One day, I posted on Snapchat that I was going to get coffee, and he writes back asking to join. I agreed and gave him the name of the place where I was going to be.
I sit down, and the waitress takes my order, a caramel latte; he enters, and we say our hellos. Conversation-wise it was fine, nothing too exciting but not horrible. We were both Dominican, so we bonded over that, but he was good-looking, and he knew it, so a lot of the conversation became about him. He orders his coffee and two appetizers.
Then another two. And another two. When he gets the last one, he offers me some, but I decline because I have plans after to eat with my friends.
So at this point, I have had one coffee, and he's had six appetizers and a coffee. He looks at me and says, 'Aren't we going to split it? He's not laughing, so I realize he's not kidding. I tell him I'm not paying since I didn't eat anything. He says, 'So? That was your decision. He started yelling in the restaurant, saying all these insults about me and how sad that makes him 'cause I seemed nice and he had high hopes for us.
I could hear him still yelling when I was outside. I was at my cousin's bridal party, and a woman I hardly knew kept asking me what was happening in my life. My response was 'I bought cats yesterday' 'cause I actually had. Joe [my now-boyfriend] popped up, and she said, 'Can I swipe him for you? He's handsome. It went pretty well, but I was getting a weird vibe, so I decided to go home.
Immediately after I left, I noticed a car following me, so I started getting really nervous. When I arrived, the car was still following me, so I quickly got out of my car and ran into my friend's house. We saw the car drive by, so we thought that we were good, but we heard knocking at the door about five minutes later. My friend opened it while I stood behind him, holding a knife. When he opened it, there stood the guy I had just gone on a date with, holding an earring in his hand.
He explained that he was just trying to return it because it looked expensive. Later that night, I realized that I had both earrings in and that this wasn't my earring. I haven't spoken to him since that night, and I haven't used Tinder either.
The karaoke bar was closed, so we went to a beer spot next door. I thought it was a nice first date, but she went on vacation after that night, and we lost touch. We both end up deleting Tinder and rejoining about a year later and eventually match. I've since had life-saving surgery, and you can see the scars in one of my pictures. She messages me, saying, 'Looks like you could use a doctor in your life.
I respond, reminding her that we had a date before, and she says, 'Since you've had a second chance at life, would you give me another chance with a second date?
Smoothest pick-up line I had ever heard. We've been inseparable since. We've traveled to another country together, exchanged house keys, and visited each other's families for Thanksgiving.
We're only roughly five months in, but we already know this is serious. As they say, when you know, you know. He seemed cool, so I gave him my number, and we decided to go out for coffee the week before Christmas. It was a nice date, but I wasn't super pressed to see him again. So I was super surprised when he asked to see me two days later, right when I was heading home for Christmas.
I declined and told him I'd hit him up when I was back in town. Over the holidays, this man kept texting me, asking when I would be back in town so we could go out again, and after one coffee date, I wasn't feeling the desperation. Trying not to be rude, I started texting back less and less and let on that I didn't want to see him again when I did get back. Of course, for some strange reason, this causes him to start friending me on all social media, sending me multiple messages a day on multiple platforms, and even calling me five times in one day, each of which I ignored.
Finally, he sends flowers to the school I teach at, which was super creepy because I had never told him the specific school. I was so freaked out and messaged him and told him to leave me alone. Then he proceeds to send me a passive-aggressive message about how he was a good guy and was going to block me on all social media!
Like he wasn't the one stalking me?! In any case, he's blocked; I'm glad I didn't meet up with him again, and I haven't met up with anyone from Tinder in a while. I literally went on a date each night. It was mostly bland, and nothing too exciting came from it. Then I matched with a cute guy from an hour away. We messaged extensively for about a week before meeting up.
For our first date, we had dinner, walked around a casino, then saw 50 Shades of Grey. It was a beyond-awesome date. When I got home, I promptly canceled all future dates with others I had planned. After our second date, we moved pretty quickly from that point. We live together and have the world's weirdest cat. We've been together for almost two years and have been engaged for nearly a year. We decided to finally hang out, but he said I had to pick him up since he didn't have a car that should've been my first clue.
I went to pick him up, and the first thing he does when he gets in the car is pat my belly and say, 'A little too much beer, yeah? You're gonna have to lose that if we date. The app always made it easy to spot the guys who were worth getting to know, and easy to tell which guys were there strictly for hookups. I met my last boyfriend on Tinder, and we ended up dating for about nine months. After we broke up, I met my current boyfriend, and we are celebrating our two-year anniversary tonight!
However, something just kept telling me there was something off about him. He kept getting really pushy about meeting up at places I was not comfortable with. I finally decided to unmatch him. Fast-forward about a month, and I'm at work. I happen to be a corrections officer at the regional jail in my area. I am working one of the male units, and an inmate walks up to my desk and says he knows me. After interviewing him, it turns out it's the guy I matched with and decided not to meet.
It turns out he is in on kidnapping charges. Needless to say, I changed units and told my supervisors immediately. We matched on December 23rd last year while I was at my mom's house for Christmas. I jokingly asked he if she would come with me to Christmas Eve Mass the following day with my mom and me, and she agreed! She met me at my house and brought my mom a present.
We went to church and came back to the house, where she helped me decorate the tree, and then we watched Home Alone after. Still one of my favorite days. We started dating officially five months later. Fast-forward into the date and he disappeared and came back holding a sandwich-sized bag half full of what looked like broken glass. Crack, my Tinder date had crack.
I politely declined his offer and then, when I had the opportunity, made an exit. We've been together almost a year, and I recently moved out of state to live with him. We talked through text for about a week before we met. After meeting, we clicked immediately. This guy was going to take me to see Finding Dory, and he showed up 15 minutes late.
I was just asking him questions about himself, but he started answering the questions with information about ME because he had completely stalked my Facebook page beforehand. He then fell asleep during the movie. I decided not to see him again after that date. matched on Tinder about a year and three months ago.
Tinder definitely won this round. I could not get out of there fast enough! We've been dating for almost two years, and I'm his first legitimate girlfriend.
