AIBU wondering how these people are strung along for months and sometimes years without ever feeling it's suspicious???

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:17:33

I often wonder that. Like the guy who was convinced he was in an online relationship for 6 years with Katy Perry.

Some people are so desperate to believe in it, they will ignore all signs

thegoodnameshadgone Sat 10-Sep-16 18:21:14

I can't turn it off!!

The Katy Perry one was ridiculous grin

But the others is easy. They often live in different states hours and hours away so it won't be easy to meet them in person.

I don't agree Omgkitties

I would have before Skype and Facetime etc, but not now.

I think they're just quite naive.

The Bow Wow one is my favourite, I haven't seen the Katy Perry one!

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:32:07

Even when faced with the truth, the guy still believed it was Katy Perry. It got a bit weird because he was still messaging the girl as if she was Katy Perry.

Its all rather strange isn't it?
Its mind boggling really.

I saw the bow wow one this afternoon. Still sitting watching it as DD is with her dad this weekend. I hope the Katy Perry one is on smile

All it takes is 10 bloody minutes on google to find out if it's lies. They don't want to know the truth.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:35:26

Dont know if the KP one has come on yet. I only found out about that one because of a news article about KP feeling sorry for him.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:36:16

I think some people just crave the attention, even if it might be all lies.

thegoodnameshadgone Sat 10-Sep-16 18:43:48

Omg there is one on now with an actual happy ending. Awww.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:47:02

which one?

x2boys Sat 10-Sep-16 18:48:27

Was that the one with the guy in the navy thegood?

thegoodnameshadgone Sat 10-Sep-16 18:49:19

Yep I think so he was only young.

TaliZorahVasNormandy Sat 10-Sep-16 18:49:48

It was Derek and Lauren. They split up after getting engaged.

Some people are just so desperate (and yes, thick) that they'll overlook anything that doesn't fit. Look at the frankly unattractive women that parade their sad faces in the DM every summer when their foreign titbits have left then after getting their money and sometimes residency.

Tiggeryoubastard Sat 10-Sep-16 18:57:05

Foreign toyboys! Ffs! I not know what happened there.
