  • Sounds a little weird to me. I would be cautious.

  • ???
    if you met on a dating site, then you can reach him on that site

    i am very surprised you would post his name on here, is someone on here supposed to say--
    "hey i know that guy, he lives next door to me"

  • i would send him an e-mail it couldn't hurt ..if you feel worried use an alternate e-mail like from yahoo or something and if you don't feel comfortable then just close the e-mail overseas who are single and are very prone to starting serious emotional relationships good luck

  • Don't trust that. There have been scams reported of people posting as deployed soldiers to get money from women. The catch phrase to look out for is they claim the need money to come home on leave while deployed.

  • u shld be able to contact him on the site. if theres not a way to reach him on his page or profile you might have to contact the support staff. Thats just a guess Im not sure how the sites privacy settings work.

  • If he asks you to send him any money, it's a scam. His email address should have a .mil at the end of it. Send him an email though the site. That's the only way you can contact him for now, until he sends you his email address.
    Be aware that there have been a lot of scams recently where people are posing as deployed soldiers and sailors, and they ask you to send them money for different things, including a plane ticket to come home to see you (real soldiers don't have to pay for those, and they don't have a choice over when they come home). Don't fall for it. If he is for real, then I hope things go well for you!
