I think it all comes down to being safe about it. If you want to date online, then be smart about it. Don't just chat in IMs or things like that, at least make sure they are who they say with webcams and vocal chatting. Most of the cases where someone was "catfished" (?), they only exchanged things through texts and voice mails. That isn't really enough. I've known people who have been fooled, and people who have successfully dated online - me being one of them. Met my boyfriend on World of Warcraft many years ago, but we made sure things were okay. We would chat on webcam, and I talked to his family many times before coming out to see him in person (I now live out with him in my own place). It just depends on the approach in my opinion.

But then again, I also have the attitude of "to each their own".

I don't have cable, but last night I was at a friends house and watched like 3 episodes. If someone refuses to video chat and talk on the phone those are giant fucking red flags. Plus as the saying goes if it's to good to be true it probably is... The sad thing is I know this shit happens all the time. Why would you think a beautiful woman would need the internet to get guys. especially your random ass....

I'm talking about the show. Not anything in particular to my life.

It may be judge mental, but I think either these people like to hold onto something
they know might just be fantasy in their head, one may never plan to pursue
such means as the other does.


Yeah, I was referring to the show as well. It seemed like in the episodes I saw these dudes got messaged out of the blue by beautiful women who wanted to "get to know them". So, my thinking is why is your random ass so special that this model would pick you out of the ether to start a "relationship" with? I think people are addicted to the attention they get from these fake profiles and live out some fantasy they can't in real life. Seems like another problem the internet created. Oh well, just be on your P and Q's kids....

I love watching that show. The crazy things people do for the attention they never got, or crave.
