Please tell me I'm being an idiot

Wasnt sure where to post this. Rather than AIBU this should be titled AIBAI (Am I Being An Idiot) :-)

Right a few months ago I was feeling nervous, uncertain in my relationship. Single mum with 2 kids, first relationship since very traumatic break up. Very scared of letting someone in and getting hurt again. Relationship had reached the point where the kids were being introduced so it was a pretty scary time for me.

Rather than discuss my anxieties with my partner, I stupidly and after a lot of wine turned to the world of online psychics. Basically I typed questions into stupid random sites and got fake emails from psychics.

Once sobered up the next day I realised I was being an idiot and that they're fake so instead I talked to my partner who reassured me that he was in this relationship for the long haul.

Every now and then I get an email from one of these psychics and I ignore them.

Meanwhile my relationship is going from strength to strength. To the extent where I've realised I'm in love with this man and I can see a future with him and my children. Slowly introduced the kids and gradually building up the amount of time he spends with them. He's asked me to go away with him next year. Just had a lovely weekend together where he's really reassured me.

So I log into my email and find an email from one it these supposed psychics "your relationship is in great danger" apparently the cards are telling her of a "symbolic departure, a sign or separation" and that I need to call as quickly as possible so she can "tell me everything".

I know I'm being an idiot but for some reason this has really got to me. Now sat here in pieces freaking out. And I'm so cross with myself for being sooooooooo stupid.

Delete the email and block the senders.

You know it’s fake because you said so yourself.

DubiousCredentials Sun 10-Dec-17 22:50:56

I meant that to sound more supportive than it came across blush

MrsPestilence Sun 10-Dec-17 22:52:25

You are only being an idiot if you don't block these nutters. Well done for communicating with your DP

The psychic has picked up on your anxiety and is trying to scam you. Ignore it sounds like your in a great relationship!! Be calm and just e joy xx

Nooo! Ignore the emails. Or block them. Load of crap. Please don't take any notice of any "psychics". They are utter bastards who play on insecurities. Wankers.

You said it yourself, you know they are fake, so just delete them. YABAI!

Glumglowworm Sun 10-Dec-17 22:54:11

You’re being an idiot. Delete the email and block the sender.

You know yourself it’s a load of bollocks, don’t let it ruin a good relationship

Psychics are rubbish, she/he is preying on you. Delete and ignore.

So a few months ago you were unsure about this relationship and in those few months you've gone from strength to strength and 'slowly' introduced your kids?

AllRoadsLeadBackToRadley Sun 10-Dec-17 22:56:05

I had the same email! It's spam. Block and delete.

hidengosqueak Sun 10-Dec-17 22:56:11

I'm also a psychic and I predict your relationship is ok and will do just fine unless you phone a stranger and give them money.

They're fishing for business.

These kind of con-artists prey on insecurity.
It's no different from Boden or whoever sending an email saying "we missed you".
They don't know who you are. They're trying to reel you in again.

Marmalady75 Sun 10-Dec-17 22:56:40

YABAI (said in a supportive tone).

frazzledmummy66 Sun 10-Dec-17 23:01:18

Thanks all grin

frazzledmummy66 Sun 10-Dec-17 23:05:08

Never been unsure about the relationship. Just got a bit wobbly a few months ago when it was time the get the kids involved. We'd been seeing each other a while before introducing the kids, don't get me wrong and I was sure about DP before introducing the kids. But it was still a nerve wracking decision and I was terrified of losing DP and messing the kids up. DP doesn't have kids so wasn't sure how he'd find my 2 DSs. Turns out I had nothing to worry about, he's been great with the kids.

frazzledmummy66 Sun 10-Dec-17 23:06:05

Have now blocked all stupid psychics.

AllRoadsLeadBackToRadley Sun 10-Dec-17 23:06:47

Does it tell you to "click here" too?

I've got a Beautiful Russian Babe wanting to meet me too, apparantly! And one wishing me Congratulation on my Amazon Token win! 😃

AllRoadsLeadBackToRadley Sun 10-Dec-17 23:07:29

Totally understand you being wary and nervous!

frazzledmummy66 Sun 10-Dec-17 23:15:45

No click here but lots of numbers to call her on. Apparently she's called Alexia.

hidengosqueak Sun 10-Dec-17 23:22:10

You can buy her on Amazon for £50 And I bet that one is more accurate

AllRoadsLeadBackToRadley Sun 10-Dec-17 23:23:38

hide I wanted to post that, but was scared of offending the OP!

Check your spam folder for a psychic or a Russian Babe...I dare you! 😃

I think in your original post you wanted to be told that you're an idiot. Well , I think you are being an idiot. Nuff said.

HermionesRightHook Sun 10-Dec-17 23:34:43

Oh my god. OF COURSE they're sending you this bullshit now: they've got a script for it. "Will my relationship pan out well" must be the number one thing people ask them about. So they say what you want to hear - "oh the stars are telling me everything will be wonderful" - wait two weeks, then try to rinse your insecurities for more money.

You know it's bullshit, well done for blocking the malevolent moneygrubbers.

hidengosqueak Sun 10-Dec-17 23:38:01

Allroads I think the op needs a blunt truth.
A little humour with it should never offend
