Yes. It wasnt good. And its still active.

Yes My now husband told me he owned a business and was worth several million. Told me had never been married and found out that he had twice. Well for better or worse after 4 years of dating we have been married a year so thats a total of 5 years

Yeah, I did! I was almost 17 when it was summer,I was excited to go on trip with my best friend nathalia when i met this guy named stevo in myspace in" tag me"..He Looked so cute, and i added the email that was below.. So I saw him first coming online in messenger,I got very excited,and decided talk to him.. He was very egocentric at the beggining but idk how he made me fall in love with him..Eventually we started chatting and all.. But within 3 months later, everything started being so dramatic and weird.. He said he was rich and used to live in scotland! He said his family was "lobins" who had a whisky factory and you could be able to read about them on net. I was very blinded cause all the pictures that he used to have in facebook were a few and small..His added friends in his profile seemed to be fake and every day that we actually manage to speak...he always have a drama problem about family,suicide stuff or getting laid with his own sister? everything sounded like a movie or a novel! We dated like for 2 years... and i throw 2 years away in my life for someone who was a liar,cheater and maybe a gansta? I dunno.. But I met other guy who was his "bro in law" named Rais and He was from pakistan and he used to threaten me to make something bad happen to this guy stevo.. But after 2 years, I really opened my eyes, and saw these people were not absolutely real people...they decieved me with coming to my place/country to visit me.. even stevo said he loves me to death and wanted to get marriage... it was all crazy! sooo i got rid of him because he couldnt keep lying to me and my family. hope this story works and make people realize sometimes internet isnt very safe as we think.. and if youre going to meet someone through net... make sure that person behind the screen to the other side of you is the person who he says he is.

Sometimes when we feel lonely and everyone else alive is unreachable, we naturally wanted to fill what is empty and chooses over the most convenient decision, technology and internet is wonderful and it spells convenience, we seem to participate the channel of technology and we get overwhelmed by the power of communication ; who communicates us or by whom we want to be communicated...either or who we want to become or who and what we want to feel, see, and have conversation with.. ....some of us don't bother if that fake turns into someone significant and lays flat when truth comes out it will hurt us so bad that it has never reach our expectations towards them....it all started within oneself getting in touch with what we imagine and conformity towards isolation.....to imagine someone beyond wonderful online pertains to your thirst', just like any variety of water you want to drink in, whether clean or contaminated just to quench it out....well dirty water will end you sick :)

Its really easy to tell if the profile is fake :D
Don't make a fool of yourself
Even those people you knew offline goes fake when they get online,,,

Dating online is a freakin' spam :/ I mean really people who are online and dating at the moment are being trick most thee time. Because the screen pic could be a damn picture from a weird website, or the person might post the opposite sex/gender I have met many people who dose that

No and it will never happen

No

YES

I am echoing SURFnGIRL

no.I think it's so stupid

I was not too innocent to be like so but I used to have a virtual friendship which I had to pay by being hacked 2 yahoo accounts, gmail account, youtube,...

Never...... And I dont want to be a victim of it because I've heard about it a lot and if am so desperate in looking for someone I'll better get all the information about them right ....rather making a fool out of myself.

Whats a fake profile?...how do you tell a fake from a non fake?..I mean most of them may be fake anyways.

I haven had sex for 11years am all way ther i am not comfident with ladys truth suxs god

Really? 11 year?

I had this happen once...my god i ran for it!!

my mum put me up on a dating site and didnt tell me, i got into it and found a date, id been speaking to him for ages. We decided to meet up, my gut instincts was on radar, something told me to get him to wait out side this pub and id turn up late.
I saw him and walked past him into pub and ran through kitchen :o
I felt bad though and went back to talk to him and asked why he was not who he said he was.

Also met my ex online, he was perfect but after getting into a relationship i could see he was false when we first started talking, ended up with me in a refuge :(

Dont date online!

My current partner used to date online before he met me and juggled several women thinking he was the big guy lol

I'm shy

No, but I've "dated" someone online many years ago when I a lot more ignorant than today.

No because it's not safe

it not happened with me but have wish to do it wooooooooo i love sex with new people

You would be surprised how many men out there think it's "hot" to pretend to be lesbian women. I have found enough to not even try online dating sites, anymore. It's really sad.

i have got some very near friends through internet.....i have never been cheated..
if u r having a relationship....then u must have the confidence and trust on the person....which only comes through communication and taking interest in partner's personality

actually i have experienced dating someone online but he did tell me his true identity, we chatted and we meet and it came to a point that we had a serious relationship for 6 years but we also broke up and until now our friendship remains.My say to this interview. well as we all know the technology today has been a big impact in our lives, it makes our life easier as well as online dating now so maybe the person just hiding his/her true identity just to protect him/herself also to those people, because there are some people in the cyber world that just using someone. We should be responsible enough so that we don't get fooled by others=)

I havent

Very few old pics?

It has not happened to me, I am very overanalytic so its hard to get me on fake accounts but lots of my close friends can be easily fooled by not checking out latest pics on the sites, by not looking up those fake profile pics on google, and by not using common sense. For example, does that person upload right in the moment pictures? Or do they just have ve

Have had a lot of guys who said they was girls never met any cuz I all ways chat on phone. Or cam and check there info out

Nah. I don't date people I just met online. Trust issues and all. :))
