    I talked to a guy on here for months and against my better judgement developed feelings for him all the while knowing something was amiss. I just found out I was lied to for about 7 months from someone I thought was a friend.

    Anyone else have this happen to them? I mean I've talked to fakers online but this, this is ridiculous.

    ...and what did you sense was amiss, but ignored?

    Inquiring minds want to know. ...ok, a bunch of busybodies want to know.

    I've had one experience... before RJ days back in 2006. Someone I had chatted with online and let me say we had a number of things in common,
    discussed every subject under the sun... of course he knew I had a bf, but
    he saw me as great friendship "material" so I thought. He had some issues in his life, but he claimed he was interviewing in Wichita for a job and we were going to meet and have lunch or just meet and talk. He always stood me up, and after about 3 or 4 times, you know there's an issue....
    I didn't blow up, I just told him there had to be an issue (he acknowledged there was)... in the end nothing happened. He vanished.

    I talked a guy from here for months and I broke my own rules by trusting a guy who wasn't verified and going on cam when he didn't have one. He's JStreet on here or so he said. Turns out he was actually the beloved "younger brother" he was raising all along.

    I spent probably about a month of my life chatting to this guy and it eroded my already tenuous relationship with my boyfriend (now ex-boyfriend) to the brink. I can't believe I'm even posting this because I'm so ashamed and humiliated.

    I wasnt hardcore lied to. My egregious experience was with a fellow on here to contacted me but then was always too busy to go to the movies or a museum. After several hundred!!!! emails, I finally said FTS, and dropped it. He has contacted me a couple of times since after about a year, but I aint interested in any penpal.

    What's wrong with people? Maybe I'm just too damn naive and trusting but I try to treat people like I want to be treated. How can you string someone along like that?

    The pictures he used as his "ex-boyfriend" who he was getting back together with were of a MMA fighter in Mississippi. A few Google searches and a lonely Saturday night later and it was a house of cards.

    JStreet is a lonely 18 year old who lives in the deep south and was looking to make friends. He is not that hunky guy in the pic. Nor was he the guy in the other pictures he sent me.FML.

    What's so funny is the first time I saw his profile I literally thought, "well this guy's obviously fake but what the hell, I'll IM him". And he seemed like a nice guy, we would chat, he was always online and eventually became friends. One thing led to another and we'd have dirty chats, I would talk to his "younger brother" (who was actually him the whole time). It's so insane I can't fathom it.

    I had this happen to me a with a wrestler guy. We talked on and off for two years on AOL. One day I checked out the new pictures in his profile and they were of a guy that I just wrestled, a friend. I told him that I really liked his pictures. Then gave my friend the heads up that someone was using his pictures and online at the same time. We nailed him.

    I used to think that 85% of the guys online were good and 15% were lying freaks. After running WrestleMen and seeing what people do with their profiles (posting images of models, etc) I now know that it is the complete reverse. Only about 15% of the people online are upfront for the most part.

    I can't imagine why anyone would want to waste time impersonating someone else unless they are seriously lacking in self-esteem. It really is very sick behavior.

    Seems like this kind of thing happens quite often. I know a guy who had a "friend" who was attracted to him but he didn't reciprocate the attraction. So this "friend" proceeded to contact him as someone else. I think he was played for over a month before he figured it all out.

    Wow, that's deceptive. Like your friend wouldn't figure out that it was a lie when he met the guy.

    That's what a rational person would think, right? But the guys who do this seem to have little regard for rational thought. Perhaps there's some thrill that comes with the deception....and getting away with it for a period of time.

    I recall a thread awhile back where someone actually went and unknowingly met the guy who was deceiving him. Seems like the liar was upset when the guy turned around and left because he was still the same person, just not with the body in the pics. These people really do exist!

    Very sorry this happened to you. I just read JStreet's profile. There is some very intense psychology going on with that guy. It stinks that he would prey on another person to gratify himself.

    It would be a double loss if this experience causes you to beat yourself up too much or lose sight of the fact that most people aren't like JStreet has been. As other's have said, I hope this experience will just allow you to trust your intuition and that you will allow yourself to put this behind you, learn what can be learned from it and then move on.

    There was a guy on here that had a bunch of us fooled. His screen name was JSTTennis or something like that. Totally know what you are going through. It's sad that people have to play games by preying on the good intentions of others on this and other sites.icon_sad.gif

    Well at least you went into it with good intentions. Give yourself a pat on the back for that at least, ok? icon_sad.gif

    Please don't feel sad about it, I don't want you to feel bad about it.
