I’ve met someone on Tinder and moved across to What’s App. We’ve been talking for nearly 6 weeks now and we were due to meet up but I wasn’t able to make it. However I can’t find any link to any social media account with his number - Facebook, Instagram, SC or LinkedIn. Is there anyway I can validate him with just his number? It almost feels like he doesn’t exist
I don’t use my number for anything to do with social media. For this very reason
I understand why you want to check, I’d be doing the same. But I think you just need to meet. Sometimes longing it out is the worst thing you can do when you’ve not met each other. Just meet him and trust your instincts
I don’t think you need Facebook for Tinder now. He’s definitely single, he rings me most evenings and texts me in the morning. I’m just intrigued. I suspect he’s using a burner phone - he hides his time stamp on what’s app but the 2 grey ticks can stay grey for hours sometimes
Have you got Facebook Messenger? I find that if I add a number to my phone's contacts, and I'm not already connected with that contact on Messenger, then when I go into 'people' on my messenger app, that they appear (obviously only if they're also on FB Messenger). You may be able to find him that way perhaps?
He might have a new phone and not updated details, but yes I'd want to see someone's fb before meeting. You can find out so much more about their life and if they are a real person or it. Just tel him to add you on Facebook or Instagram and if he says no it's about dodgy x
It's amazing how people's views are different! If I were to meet someone and they asked to be added to my fb or insta it would be goodbye. Then again I never dated in the social media world so might not know.
OP I still suggest you ask your questions directly and get to know the man in person, rather than investing so much headspace in someone you haven't even met. If he is a genuine person he might get scared away!
Most people have hundreds of friends on Facebook so I don't see why adding someone you've been getting to know for 6 weeks would be a problem. If it doesn't work out you can always delete them off there no harm done
