Only strange encounters I have had are the "youngins" asking to chat or requesting photos. I am talking about 20 and 30 year olds. It is really grossing me out........would never dream of dating a guy younger than my kids. Other than that scammers are always around and after being on here (for a while) you can spot them in a heart beat. We are tough ladies!!! We can see through the bullshit and move on. There are so many nice (regular) bloggers on here that you can always ask one of us about a profile. Chances are we have been contacted from the same wacka doodle............happy searching everyone!!!
