    Not Sure

    I have heard about catfishing and how do you know someone is genuine. I have been chatting with someone not close to me geographically. I have had her send pics but how do I know she is not just playing game

    I got talking to a woman on pof.

    Exchanged phone numbers and started texting. Found it a bit bizarre to talk to some one I'd never met by text. We met up at a pub quiz night this week and had a great time. She is good looking, slim and seems genuine. I am cautiously optimistic as she's seems to be making a lot...
