Scammed online, brokenheart one more time

by uknow on August 13, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Went online looking for love, found it in an instant. Should have known something was wrong, but vulnerability and lonliness lead me in an unwanted direction. I saw subtle signs and thought nahhh! it can't be! I am just overeacting. Everything was perfect, words were sweet, communication was on point. Sharing of photos and similar backgrounds for a period of over seven months had me truly convinced I had found the one who I could really relate too and love forever, WRONG!!! I don't know why I was so naive--sometimes you just don't want to face the truth when it is staring you in the face.
