Mr. Lovestruck

I'm not sure if this happens to other people... but sometimes I get random messages from people on facebook. I mean, I get random friend requests all the time. I don't know who these people are or how they found me... but they do. Since I don't know them, I don't accept their friend request.

Well, last week, I got a message from this guy in London. He is 30 and pretty cute, so I write back. Why not? I personally enjoy chatting and getting to know new people. Like having a penpal.

And so it began...

Mr. Lovestruck : I liked your picture I saw and that was why I sent you the friend request you look so sweet. It will be nice to get to know you better I hope you don't mind.

Me: No, I don't mind. Let's get to know each other. Tell me about yourself. What do you do?

Mr. Lovestruck: Am so happy you don't mind getting to know me, I don't mind getting to know you better as well... Its so nice you have such positive thought about your looks and yes indeed you are sweet and beautiful.. Good to hear you like making new friends, I like to make new friends too.... It will be nice to have you in Europe some time. I am single 30 years of age and I am interested in find a serious relationship that can lead to marriage. How old are you? And what kind of relationship do you seek? My favorite color is blue what about you? I like to eat sea foods and they are my favorite. I am mixed race by birth where my dad is from Austin texas and my mom from birmingham london, my dad died of cancer things became so had and rough for my mom so she decided to take me down to her home town which is where we are presently in other to easy her the responsibility of taking care of me alone. I am the only child of my parents i work with the less privileged here in london and I am a teach, I teach mathematics to kids between the ages of 5 to 10 years. What do you do for a living? and where are you from? I like to cook, dance and hangout with friends in my free time. I have told you about me and I will like to know about you as well for now I will stop here for now and hope to hear from you soon....

So I wrote him about myself.... nothing fancy... he wrote back saying he looked forward to my emails and they put a smile on his face, I wrote back (nothing mushy) answering his questions...

Mr. Lovestruck: Do you think we can get to love each other from online dating? is the distance a problem to you? i have never tried the online dating but it worked for my friend and he has been married for over 3 years now and i decided to give it a try. As for me the distance is not a problem for me

Me: *not really knowing what to say* I think it is pretty hard to say right now... we don't really know each other and we have never met

Mr. Lovestruck:

Thanks for your long message to me and i am so happy to read from you today, i came back from work and i went straight to the computer to see if i have a mail from you and you made my day when i saw your lovely letter. I can see i am finding you so interesting, am now eager to hear from you. i was getting so worried i did not hear from you as it was unlike you i felt i had said some thing wrong, but you have made my day now with your reply..... message continues
We wrote back and forth a couple more times... asking and answering get to know you questions. Then... things escalated quite quickly... for him.

Mr. Lovestruck:
Sweet Tracy My red heart is blue, because I am missing you. Every day, I think about you, and I imagine how great every hour, every minute, and every second would be if you were here with me. Since i met you every night, when I lie in bed, I dream that you are beside me, holding me close to you. If you were, I would whisper in your ear, how much I love and care about you. Since you came into my life nothing has been the same. I have experienced love and care to its fullest, and I have tasted a beauty that never ends, because you are where my happiness begins. I am incomplete without you, and I will never stop loving and caring for you. You are the world to me, in brilliant colors. You are my best friend, a favorite song that will never end. And together is where we should be. Someday soon. Till then i will stop here for now and hope to hear from you soonest.
Kisses and hugs Love You now and always
Me: He seemed so sweet and sensitive. I didn't want to hurt his feelings... but at the same time, I couldn't let him continue to have these sorts of feelings for me! It's just weird. We don't know each other at all. So I said...
The end of your email is very sweet... but I don't know how you love and care for me so much when we have never met. It takes me a lot longer to develop those types of feelings. I think you are great and very sweet.... but I don't know if you should be getting so attached when we are so far away and don't even know when we will have to opportunity to meet. Let's continue to get to know each other

Mr. Lovestruck:
I really can not wait for the first day we will have to meet each other face to face and have some fun together that will be one of the happiest day of my life. As i have taking you to be very important to my heart and just like i said before you have taking a very special place in my heart. Thanks for answering the questions and i must say i am okay with your answers. I want you to know i wrote that from the bottom of my heart. Just like you said you dont know how i love and care for you, I still dont know how it happened but i guess is because i am taking you serious and i am trying to trust and believe in every word you say to me. secondly you have the qualities i seek in a woman and i want you to know i am not just taking this as online penpal i want to take you serious and from the words you say to me i know we can have a good and sweet home together. I want you to bring out your heart and mind for this okay. Try and believe in me and in my words just like i have done for you and you will see the feelings in you will come out. I know we have never met but trust is what we need need now because without trust then there is no relationship. Put your trust in me and i will put my trust in you then we will have the best relationship ever. When we will meet should not be a problem for you, we should learn to develop feelings for each other and build this strong bound between us then we can then plan on how and when to meet each other. Thanks for your compliments its been long someone told me i am great and very sweet, i want you to know you are sweet and great too. My dearest Tracy there is a sea between our love, and I wish that it weren't true, for every day when I awake, I yearn to be with you. There are many miles between us, though you are always here in my heart, and every night, beneath the silver starlight, I pray for the day we will meet and never part. Till then i will stop here for now and i hope to hear from you soonest..

Take Care and have a nice and wonderful weekend. Kisses and hugs Love you now and always

So.... he didn't get it the first time. Just not sure what to say now. I just thought I had a penpal... then I don't know what happened. It started out so positive!

Be careful! This guy sounds like one of those catfish scammers from Africa. English obviously is not his first language and it doesn't seem like he is British or else he would spell color with "our". I saw a Dr. Phil about this and the guy was saying he was from Texas and moved to England. But really they are Africans sitting in an Internet cafe scamming women out of money!

Tracy said...

Don't worry... I would never give in to scam. And he hasn't asked me for money... I don't think he is a scammer.

Lynette Mills said...

It seems fishy to me too. Who talks like that?

Abby Wright said...

Not a scam. Just a lonley fella. Sounds African or Indian. Totally experienced this when I was online dating. Ie testing the crazy waters

Bre said...

I don't worry about scam more than I worry about a perverted freak who wants to do naughty things. Having pen pals like that is fun, but you have to be so careful! There's a lot of scary, freaky people out there! (not that i need to tell you all this...). But I do agree with others...his wording and phrasing doesn't sound British to me. It sounds like English is a second language.

I had a guy from England message me via Facebook once. He just seemed lonely, but I didn't write him back. Because I'm married.
