Sometimes.....well....most of the time I'm very apprehensive when it comes to trusting new people on EP. I had a girl that I would listen to every day...she'd talk about suicide, how she hated living....etc. etc. Every day, no matter what I was the same thing. She would make claims, outlandish claims, to make her story seem more tragic. The problem was I couldn't tell what was real and what was fiction. What if I called her out on something, and it turned out it had actually happened to her? That would be just damn terrible....

Then line was crossed for me when she had to go somewhere, saying she'd be out of contact for a month. We said our goodbyes, and then not an hour later, a random account messages me, talking to me about my stories and how they can identify with them. I was 100 percent certain it was this same girl, or person, that made this alternate account to create some sort of different persona to try to talk to me.

Needless to say, I felt pretty uses. I had had my suspicions for a while, but I figured that if I could at least help her, liar or not, then that would be okay. I doubt I ever did. I guess some people just like the attention...waking up to people caring about them. It's a great feeling, I'll admit.

So, like I's hard for me to trust people on here. You never know who or what you are getting into. Be safe and on your guard. You never know.

I'm sorry you had to go through this. One of my friends in high school was borderline so it made it very hard to be around her. She lied constantly and seemed attention. But I also know she was in a lot of pain and needed help. But when I say help, I mean by a professional. Sometimes all we can do is try to lead people to seeing a therapist.
Everyone deserves to get help and even if they are attention seeking, that doesn't mean they are in less pain then others.
I'm not trying to scold you or anything. Your reaction to your situation was just fine. I might have done the same thing

Some people just don't get that. Well said.
