I have been texting with a guy from Zoosk. He mentioned he was an Architect so I asked to see some of his work.. He sent 2 photos of buildings, one the Boston City Hall and the other an iconic beach house on Oxnard CA. he said the beach house was his in Fla...... Hummmmmm, not so much. I'm a wiz at research and was already smelling stinky fish so checked all of this out and asked what the deal was.. He came up wth some garbled reply...I kept asking where he lived in L.A. and he finally sent an address... Naturally he doesn't. It had been recently sold so I contacted the Realtor to ask if he was familiar with my "New Boyfriend's" name... nope! in the meantime he kept sending a score of text messages every day with hearts, smiley faces and so on... He quickly began calling me pet names, My Love, Sweetie, sunshine...sheesh!!!! One day he asked if I would meet him for dinner that night.. I said I wasn't available and suggested we reschedule.. he didnt pick up the ball... days pass and finally he is going to Dubai for a couple of weeks... He wanted my email address and I refused to give it for security reasons... I created a new one for him but told him I was going on location and would not have a lot of time for emails, I prefer text messages... finally he messaged me saying he had just gotten his cell up and running.. totally plausible I suppose and has continued to text... The FUN part is he has sent some emails. The last of them said he " I am doing Turnaround maintenance on two Biomass plants in Dubai". I wasn't sure what a biomass plant was so googled that entire phrase and OMG I was surprised to fine the text of his message on this site. He had simply copied and pasted it and sent.. The differences between the texts and language and facility with English in the emails was definitely noticeable... He didn't create the original emails which I must say are the sort of stuff nearly all women want to receive. Once I found this site, instead of cutting him off I decided to have a little fun with him. I am busy anyway but have told him I don't have time to reply to his numerous texts... beside the conversation goes like this
Him: Good morning Sweetheart, did you sleep well?
Me: yes Him what did you have for breakfast?
Me: a latte. Him: I love lattes, what are you going to do today?
Me: work on my project, what are YOU going to do today?
Incredibly boring and second if he really wants to do a scam he needs to get his act together. I will bust him eventually but waiting to torture him a little more first. In the meantime I am ignoring him frequently.. I hadn't replied for a couple of days and second wanted him to do some of the heavy lifting for a while to change the balance of power from him to me.
He messaged me saying
H: Hey baby, you good?
M: Working still. Send me a selfie Mr Selfie God.............
M: Selfie please!!! ( 6:30 pm)
M: I Hope you are more attentive to your other girlfriends. (11:30pm)
H: Good morning baby.. How are your doing? Hope you had a great night I'm sorry for not reaching out to you. I've been really busy but you can always write to my email ( [email protected]
) and I'll get that, sometimes texting on here is expensive but it's whatever ( he has already said he has made a lot of money so????) How's it been for you, I really missed you so much! Cheers to the weekend boo 9 double heart). Then attached a photo ...not sure how to post his pic but he or whoever is handsome.
Several hrs later after no reply from me... ( Fri 7:24 pm)
H: Talk to you once I get up love
H: Hey baby how are you doing? Where you been since yesterday, not heard from you and it makes me worry...
I miss talking to you darling
M: Very Busy ( a couple of hrs later)
H:Ops I get it, no problem. Just can't stop thinking about you.
H: Text me as soon as you can ( smiley face with a HALO hahaahhaha, ) ( Sat. 610 pm)
M: Very busy today. What do you need?
H: Your Attention, I understand tho. what are you doing right now?
At 10 pm I sent a photo of drinks on a table with another persons hand across from me trying to incite a little fake posessiveness.....
M: This is what I'm doing
H: Seems like you had a nice time last night, respond to me baby. Good afternoon love How are you doing? Hope you resting by now. Sorry I didn't reach back to you. I slept off yesterday was a long day. I sent you an email so you should look at it. Just had coffee here and am relaxing. Besides I miss talking to you boo. Text me once you back. Love you (Sunday 4:30 a.m.)
The promised email is not to be found so waiting to hear from him about why I havent responded...
This is a crazy situation for certain. I'm going to be back in LA where he says he lives. He's asked if I'm still going to meet him when I return... I do not expect he will show but till then it keeps me from being bored. Seems the worse I treat him the more persistent he is. So far no requests for money, nothing but GB photos and no overtly suggestive talk.. more over the next couple of weeks till I get rid of him.
Thank you all for posting your experiences. For a moment early on I started thinking maybe????? but over that and well into doing my best to make him work at it.
