I can't stand the fact that people have nothing better to do and make it their mission to catfish people because of their own insecurities.

This is what makes it so hard to date online!!!!

They take advantage of your kindness and it really hurts.

Hopefully this site is different.


Shout out if this has ever happened to you.

I've had several men ask to see my private photo album or sent me a message.  I haven't done anything on this site but look.  I'm actually a little scared because so many people aren't who they claim to be.  I guess it's best to be cautious and process for a little bit before responding back immediately.  If their photo is verified then it is less likely they are catfishing. Right?

People actually meet other people to date on Twitter?  Interesting...

Never give your bank account information!!! Hoping you know this already but I’ve had plenty of guys say oh I’ll send u this amount to go shopping etc. just give me ur bank account and I’ll wire it over. Smh. Even if I gave them my bank account info... they wouldn’t get money 😂😂 I keep cash 💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️

i think it is because twitter is more about what you say than how you look like?

I've ran into a lot of military men who say the same line but are scammers. It makes me not even want to do online dating. But one of mt best friends found her husband on Twitter. This is the only reason why I'm trying this site

Reference MaryClaire2000,

E9 in the Air Force are addressed as Sargent or Chief. The LTC rank a dead giveaway when saying they are a Sargent. if you are aware. For the Air Force the new rank insignia is 3 stripes over 5 under (if that’s understandable).

Trust but verify. Look for a trend that things don’t look or feel right to you.

 

@JayEnyd ,

Lissy, Men or woman it happens to both. Since Nov 2017 I have been in contact with 170 women on 3 dating sites. I have seen everything you described. And it’s not generational. I am always respectful. I state and show it in my actions that I’m a man with integrity and will always be honest and straightforward. I’m always kind. But, yet someone sent my profile, prior to me coming to MM, to every dating site on the internet. I didn’t deserve that. But, I deal with it and learn. I continuously improve who I am, even though I’m older now. After 30+ years out of the dating life I have updated my dating philosophy and even what I need to provide to the next woman in my life as it pertains to intimacy and her wants and needs. To easy today to have your love interests head turned and someone steal them away.

I’ll close with this. Trust but verify. In verifying you see a bad trend end it. Do it respectfully and be kind, but, do not lie. There is no good reason to ask someone new in your life for money for any reason. Financial obligation starts at “I Do”. An electronic relationship is not a relationship. Relationship begin when you see and experience the others life in person everyday.

Good luck in your search - Jay

Well that has happened to me to someone supposedly in the military but he called a E-9 a “ SGT” however in a pic he had on LTC rank.. They think posing as a active duty Soldiers is a way in... But he didn’t realize he was emailing a Vet. When I called him out on it the emails suddenly stopped(sarcasm) lol


 

@bludiamond7,

 

Caught in the act huh..bad for him .. I had encounters with 

several scammers ..they had a lot of tactics to get a woman

but somehow I learned to manage out of it ..

Yes. It’s so difficult to be taken advantage of. Ask a lot of questions. Even if a man is older, don’t think he is wise or genuine.

I am a victim of a classic Tinder catfish. I was speaking to such an attractive guy and we were really clicking. I got all excited about my new flame and showed my friend a picture of him. She took one look and proceeded to burst my bubble, telling me that he was using pictures of a famous YouTuber on his profile.

He messaged me later that day asking what I’d been up to, so I said, “Oh nothing… I’ve just been watching episodes of Catfish all day”. He blocked me – such a shame.
