Brad wrote, “So you have that creative thang going on? And you have defied the aging process! Where are you from originally? How have you evolved? Have you been in therapy? Too many questions from a complete and total stranger? Brad”
Yes, Brad, too many questions.
TigerTerry123 showed sincere interest in me and after a couple of lively back-and-forth emails, he invited me to meet him for a happy hour cocktail. We set a time and place and he emailed, “See you there Nancy! Bring that smile, love it!!!”
An hour before our evening meeting, he emailed, “Nancy, I need to pass this evening. Can you do Friday or Saturday?” Followed with, “Just leaving the office. Hope you aren’t angry. Really do want to meet you.”
His last-minute cancellation was rude and unacceptable. I emailed him, “Tom. No. Not angry. But I turned down an invitation to meet you and canceling an hour prior to our date was inconvenient. Nancy.”
He apologized and ask to meet me the following week, saying, “Can‘t wait. Ok, I will be there. I promise!!!
The day of our meeting he emailed me, “I apologize, I am not going to be able to make it this evening.”
I emailed him, “Good luck on your journey.”

His direct email is jamesoswin247 at GMAIL C O M I hope you get in touch with him and I promise you won’t regret anything. My warms regards…Donald”
These guys are romance artists looking for their next victim.
The Anonymous Man:
Alphaman101 does not have a photo and he sends: Hi, you’re very pretty and I would like to get to know you better. Allen
A man without a photo does not deserve a reply, but if you feel you must, you can reply, “I appreciate your message but I don’t give out my personal email to strangers or correspondence to people without photos.
The Cheating Man:
Signs of married men and cheaters:
They don’t post a photo, or they post a fake photo or the photo is clearly dated, dark or blurry (he doesn’t want anyone to recognize him.) They are unwilling to provide additional photos, claiming he doesn’t have current photos.
They will message you on a dating site and when you click on his profile to check him out, he has already hidden his profile so no one can see him.
They pursue women who live in another state. He tells you he’s relocating to an area near you and that he’s getting a “jump-start” on his new social life. He’s plotting long-distance affairs to hide his infidelity.
