I learned what "cat-fishing" is. I feel so old now. I also feel sorry for people that fall for it.

Yes, I do know what it is. MTV even has a show all about it. Let me guess you learned it because of the football player hoax thing?

Yes, sadly I am not a big news or television person and my DH said something about it and so we watched it on the news. I had no idea there was a show about it.

Yeah. The show is on MTV. It's really mean sometimes and crazy what people actually do. One episode a woman was pretending to be this guy, to make this girl fall in love with him, so she didn't steal the girls man. The things people do with FB, and dating sites is sometimes crazy. You really have to question it though, when you go months or years without ever meeting the person face to face.

See that is my question about it...How can you do that for years and never meet them?

I have wondered the same thing. I have done online dating. I couldn't imagine "dating" someone for months or years without ever meeting them face to face, or at least skyping with the person.

I agree. It just would make me feel uncomfortable and uneasy about them and most likely I would either demand a face to face or cut off the relationship.
