    Ok so since march 2008 i've been talking to this guy online.

    We hit the conversation of great and he sent me pics of him and they looked legit. I mean he had plenty.

    Except things kinda got sketchy one time when he sent me pics of his house and his home town.

    Now I know I might come off as a little ditzy in some of my posts but i'm really not stupid because in the picture he sent to me he said he lived near the ocean on a cliff in newfoundland which i can see as true. However when he sent me another pic of his backyard It didn't seem that the trees that were in his back yard would grow that close to the ocean. I just don't persoanlly think Elm and red maple trees grow near the ocean on sharp cliffs. I could be wrong.

    So I guess I ignored it because I liked him and it was forgotten. However tonight.. I showed him my baby picture and I wanted to see his and he sent me this pic.

    Now tell me if i'm wrong because this is why I blocked him tonight and could have thrown it all away for nothing.. BUT

    Does that look like a picture of a baby born in 1984 who is now 23? I can clearly see the Mc Queen character on the babies house coat from that Disney Cars movie which came out a year ago. When I called him on his shit he got mad at me said I had no trust in him and told me Cars and that character were not an original idea.

    Guys please weigh in because i'm still sorta shocked and feeling so stupid I let this happen.. but that pic totally looks fake right?

    you're right...

    What's easier is to get him on webcam, then you know for sure if he is for real or not, but often times, I find that if there are lies to start off with, then there are probably a lot more lies that are waiting to be discovered... so you probably made the right move.

    I think you found a faker, unless he's willing to go on webcam to verify that the pics he sent you really are of him.

    Just for fun I googled Cars and McQueen and nothing before 2006 popped up. Gotta love liars that are too dumb to cover their tracks.

    I don't know who this McQueen character is, but unless they rolled out the same exact product in 1984 and 2008 (when ever this movie came out your buddy is full of it. You can see the same robe for sale here.

    if at anytime someone refuses to get on webcam, it's usually a sign that something fishy is going on.

    There are always excuses, but that is definitely a new one... doesn't sound very intelligent on his part.

    Hahah.. Yeah I know Shawn. I looked up the film on good old wikipedia and it said nothing of it being based on a old movie or Tv show.

    Sides that form on animation wasn't even around in the 80's Toy Story was the first film of that type if I remember correctly.

    WOW Sean An Asian guy in Canada told me that EXACT story as to why he won't go on webcam or talk on the phone.

    Of course, I don't know if ANYthing your guy or mine said is true.
    I am beginning to think there might be a few really sick, lonely weirdos stalking these sites just to get fantasy cyber pals.

    He's full of shit.

    If you account for blur and quality loss from compression, the grain on that picture is too good to be from the 80's.

    Not an exact match, but close enough. It's apparent that robes in this style were made after the movie, and still are. The character is obviously the same one.

    You did the right thing by blocking, dude is a fucking lyin sack of shit. I just really have a hard time understanding how sad someone's life must be to actually put the time into faking things like this. Next time you're dealin with someone who you think might be lyin, tell them about being burned before and that you need some proof that they are who they say they are. If they can't provide it because of some bullshit reason (raped on webcam!?!?!?!?) then move on.

    I dont mean to laugh at your misfortunes, but the fact that someone could be dumb enough to use a baby pic with a 2005 movie character on it is just funny. If your gonna be a loser who fakes an identity online, at least be good at it...

    Well Sean you were right to be suspicious when you saw the trees. My family's cottage is on the Bay of Fundy, and well deciduous trees usually don't grow on cliffsides! Coniferous like spruce and pine do.

    He could still be 23 but with a wife and kid! Maybe that is his kid or perhaps his nephew?

    The story about the webcam is truly strange, IDK maybe he was referring to a guy who webcammed with another guy, then they hooked up for real and the rape occurred? Sounds very strange to me.

    One of life's lessons learned. I have always wondered if it is even possible to have a successful LTR with someone that you meet over the internet. It is hard enough to have a LTR when they are living in the same house!

    I guess I'm probably just a trusting person, but even I would have wondered about a picture like that sent to you. Of course I probably would not have sent baby pics.. I think my bf has seen mine and we've been involved for 9 years.

    Never understand what someone has to gain from doing something like that. I'm sure if he lived anywhere you probably wouldn't have cared. What is the point?

    Glad to hear you won't be troubled by him anymore.

    I'm with the others Sean, great intuition and letting your brain use the blood instead of ...well, you know. If he were honest, sincere and serious, he'd propose more options to the validity of his identity. You don't have to show your face to be able to convince someone that you are who you say you are. Clearly he does not want to do this and if he's not willing to show his face then he's probably not going to be willing to develop much of a friendship/relationship.

    Dude honnestly I told him that because this other guy who I did meet online was a real person we met up but he was like not the guy he said he was. Totally different personality total douche bag.

    I'm soooo pissed off that this guy had all these chances to tell the truth and passed on them all.

    You know the scarey thing. He never once asked me to do anything sexual on webcam. He only wanted to see me. And that is why I feel so freakin violated. Like why even bother. I think thou he did say he's in the closet in a remote part of the counrty.. I think I was his only gay connection and he needed to feel like I was a bf or w/e.. Still why bother wasting my time.

    I'm still trying to figure why anyone needs to try and pretend to be someone that they're not. They'll never find happiness, never find real love and never be authentic in anything they do in their life.

    What a waste of effort it must be to wake up in the morning

    MOVE ON.. did ya not read the thread on 7 months of deception. if there are still major questions after u have talked a few times about the persons identity, it is not worth the time when it comes to online.

    It's called projecting the misery of their self-loathing onto unsuspecting others.

    Blahh... the dating game sucks sooo much.

    What ever happened to honnest, normal, well rounded guys who just want to be nice to other people and have no hidden agendas.

    If boys weren't so cute and fun to look at i'd peace out on this game and join the Catholic Church. icon_wink.gif
