    A few years ago I started chatting with a guy on another website. We hit it off. We could talk for hours about anything. After around year of chatting and talking on the phone. I had just started figuring out that almost everything he told me was a lie. From reading between the lines of all the stories he told. I knew quite a bit about who he really was. We had crossed paths in real life a few times. I enjoyed his company and didn't care that he lied to me. He ended things between us. It hurt, but he also brought allot of joy to my life. I guess he was just enjoying internet fantasy role playing.. I'm glad he did.. It was a meaningful connection for me. Anyone else have anything similar happen?

    I've met lots of fakes online over the years, especially in AOL gay chat rooms, but never derived any pleasure from it as you seem to. On the contrary, I have no interest or patience for guys playing their games with me.

    You seem to have discovered, as I did, that most of these fakes will trip themselves up over time. Either their stories are easily proven factual lies, or their different stories contradict each other. And they will terminate contact if they fear they're about to be exposed, which is what may have happened in your case. I see no value in having dealings with them, whatever their motives are.

    Haven't had a similar experience, but it seems odd he would lie about a lot of things and be willing to talk on the phone. Unless he was only lying about a couple of things, he would have to be good to maintain a facade and not worry about slipping up when chatting on the phone.

    This is why I prefer to meet someone rather quickly. A few emails, a phone call or two, then meet. As much as I like to think otherwise, I can be fooled on the phone or by an email. But meeting in person is a different story. You get to see his eyes and body language. (plus you'll see whether or not his picture is current...been there done that too many times)
