Plenty of Fish (POF)

Then I moved on to Plenty of Fish (POF). 

I have several POF stories but I have to tell you the one that just happened this week.

So I go through the pictures and profiles and saw a guy who looked cute and had a decent profile.  So I figured what the heck I’ll send a flirt.  He responded back right away and we exchanged several messages over 2 days.  He said he was in the army special forces and right now he was stationed in St. Louis.  He is from Valley Park.  My first question I asked is what high school he went too.  He told me JFK High School.  So I checked and that high school is in St. Louis.  Okay, so that may be true.  As we chatted he mentioned be stationed here and I should have asked where, instead I said oh are you at Jefferson Barracks and he said yes.  My goof there.  Supposedly he has an 8 year old daughter who lives in KC and is being taken of while he is here.  He said his wife was killed in a car accident five years ago.  So a day later he says I should get a google account and get hangout app on my phone and we could message through there, so I finally get it and we exchanged messages.  The next day we messaged and I was still skeptical.  The messages he was sending weren’t making any sense.  I sent him a list of 10 questions and he answers them all.  I asked what he does and he gave a very long and detailed explanation.  I thought well maybe he is who he said he is but he could have gotten all that info on the internet.  Of course the compliments started about how I am the most beautiful thing he has seen in the last years.  During the conversation he asked me 3 times what I was doing.  I told him the same thing every time.  So he sent this message:  “It’s getting late over here, just need to check on the refugees once more, give some report and I’ll talk to you later.”  My eyes lit up.  So I asked him if there were refugees at JB?  He said for now.  I checked and there are none there.  It is the home of the National Guard.  So here is where I nail him in his lies.  This is what I wrote back to him:

“Are you really in St. Louis or are you yanking my chain?  I’m not being rude but I’ve run into a couple of guys on here who say they are in the military and really aren’t.”  He response was:  “omg.  Seriously?”  I respond back:  “Yes, I found first one on a website about this kind of thing.  His picture was there.  I wasn’t hurt or mad.  Just don’t want to waste me time.”  He said ok.  I wrote back that I just want honesty.” 

Guess what?  I never head back from him and this was from a day ago.  And he conveniently blocked me from seeing him POF.  I know this because a co worker has the app and she said she saw him on the day before.

Now I did google him everywhere and nothing came up.

Tip 4:  When you don’t find them on the internet, chances are he is using a fake name.  Everyone who has a smart phone or internet access has their foot print out there.  So if you google and can’t find anything?  It’s a fake name.
