I think my friend is being CAT-FISSHED by a married man ETA
Catfishing is when someone online pretends to be someone else to form a relationship with you. Like sending you pix of someone else who is more attractive and leading you on for weeks or months sometimes even years.
ANYWAYS, my friend met this guy online. He said he was Special Ops in the Army and that he is gone doing field training all the time and that he has a special "work phone' that gets better reception when he is out in the field training soldiers... Sometimes he wont text her for a few days. He always claims to be traveling, jet lagged etc. He has never face timed her or skyped her, he has sent a whopping THREE photos of himself to her, but he will send her voice texts or talk on the phone to her. The photos he sent look like photos he took off someone elses facebook. A photo of a guy shooting a machine gun in the desert with his face mostly covered, that sort of thing.
This guy clailms to take care of his "sick mother" and that he just bought a huge house and she lives there and takes care of it for him. That he has no kids and has never been married. When ever she talks about meeting up with him he shoots her down and makes up an excuse. Soooo many red flags right?
She doesnt even know what his MOS is, he wont add her on facebook, only texts her from his 'work phone' and is always gone for a week or so 'traveling' or 'in the field'. My husband was in the army for over 10 years, he said that this guy is lying through his teeth. Things that he says he does are so far from what actually happens. I get the feeling that he is a bored married man living some sick stupid fantasy or something.
I cant believe I left this out. She left her husband and two small children for this guy. She moved out and is renting a tiny room in some house, and got a job at the grocery store. She left her kids with her husband (who is in the AF) and her kids want nothing to do with her anymore. They scream when she picks them up. Its sad.
