    I got excited when I saw this! sorry, your weird encounters entertain me 😀

    But, after reading all of this, I really think that the whole thing was a scam. I bet, if you had responded that you wanted to be in a long term relationship with him through texts that he would have started asking you for money. The weird grammar, the lack of intention to meet, really reminds me of those email scams.

    Some of those online sites…you certainly can meet some interesting people. You probably had a lucky escape.

    I think he is one of these romance scammers. I am online dating as well and just have had a very similar experience where I strongly suspect a romance scammer is behind. He says he is living in the US, has a german father. He told me his name and the name of the company he owns but there are no online traces. The online profile on the dating site is deactivated and he also wanted to get to know me better and change to email and google hangout chat really soon. Ok, so we did just that. Weird romantic statements really soon. His answers are somewhat generic and as I prompted him to write an email and tell me more about himself he just repeated the thin story from the dating site, not much additional information. His english sounds not like that of someone born in the US – even if English is my second language I am quite sure. I asked about the weather in the town he stated to live in and google said something different. I have not more proof but my gut feeling usually is superb and I just stopped answering because I dont have the time to waste it on some fantasy. Maybe I should have called him out that he is a romance scammer ? I am sure he would not have answered or just said I am wrong.

    Wow, I really thought I had commented on this post “way back when” (obviously my mind is going 😉
    H2, “the keeper” is a British import & has a lovely soft Cornish accent… It’s grossly unfair as he charms everyone everywhere we go “Oh, where are you FROM?” etc although I have to admit, his family likes to hear Z & my Texas twang.
    Unfortunately he can still melt my heart when we’ve argued & he apologizes in That Voice of his – it’s every bit as unfair as the fact that there used to be something about his pheromones that really tripped my trigger – when he’d come in after working outside, anxious to hit the shower (he’s also a very CLEAN guy, A+ on the hygiene front!) I would make him stand still & let me bury my nose in his neck for a good nuzzle…
    Too bad menopause has extinguished my libido, beta blockers have killed H2’s, but hopefully these 15 yrs together has cemented our bond fairly well.

If you don't comment, then I'm just talking to myself -- and I do too much of that already.
