Been "dating" this guy online for a few weeks now. Should have known it was too good to be true. Can you tech savvy moms see what you can find out about these pics? His name is David Harris and his email is

The 3rd pic is his daughter

Below is one of his emails to me. Warning...It's long lol

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to get to know you. I believe we are
both new to this dating scene, Anyway where there is a will there is a way.
I'm in search of my Soul & Dream Mate, Lover and Life Companion.

Let me give you a brief introduction of me:

My name is David White/Caucasian. I'm Self Employed Building and
constructions Engineering I'm 58yrs old, Widow, lost my wife years ago
due to the earthquake that happen in Christchurch New Zealand . I'm a man
with a strong heart,loving, caring, honest, compassionate, affectionate. I
have a good sense of humor and believe in God. I like swimming, camping,
fishing, reading & writing, tennis, Football, Basketball, Baseball,

My Father is from German while my Mother is from USA, I obtained my
Bachelor's degree in Building And Constructions engineering at University
of Berlin in Germany .

Before,I enter into the site,I prayed to get my true love that I will love
forever,a woman that can bring happiness and joy in my life again. I have
been searching for my true love, yet I have not find one. A friend of mine
introduced me to this site, he said that I can find my true love here. So I
registered the site..

I want you to understand in destiny, destiny can be delayed, but it can not
be denied. I hope you understand what I meant. l have one brother Daniel
45yrs and i have one Daughter Debbie she's 28yrs. l don't mind to relocate
to any area , Because am self employed which means i can live and work

What i seek in my partner and seek in a relationship .... Easy going,
positive attitude and happy by nature. Kind- heated and compassionate.
Honest, faithful trusting and trustworthy. Solid core values with lots of
integrity. A healthy self esteem and a good sense of humor. Like me, loyal
to a fault.She is sometimes get upset, and that's expected. She holds her
ground when she believes she's right, but she doesn't need major drama to
make a point.She is affectionate and loves affection. She enjoys being
feminine and intimate. She smiles with her eyes and loves with her soul.

A successful relationship can only be built on a foundation of honesty,
trust and mutual respect. We must be able to express our feelings freely
without fear of being judged or attacked.Tough issues need to be addressed
head on, resolved, and then we move on. After hearing each other out, I am
OK with agreeing to disagree. We both admit we're not perfect and neither
of us expect perfection. “I was wrong”, “I’m sorry” and “forgive me” are
foundation phrases in a successful relationship.

Someone to hold you close in good times and bad. A loving and caring
partner who will enrich your life with daily doses of attention and
affection. Perks include travel near and far plus many new fun experiences
we will dream up and enjoy together. Could I be the guy you're looking for?
You'll never know unless you click the button.

When l glanced on your profile, my instinct push me to write you, your
simplicity really amazed me and i was motivated to send you an email to
show my interest. I promise to romance, entertain, laugh, cherish and
respect. I was raised to treat people with Dignity and Compassion. I still
believe in romance and feel there is a place for long passionate kisses.
There is so much to tell from the kiss. It's all in the kiss. I haven't
been able to find the lady I am supposed to connect with but I think she is
out there, somewhere. Well am I describing you? I hope I am.. Here is my
pictures of me and my Daughter Debbie.

I will await your response and hopefully we could get acquainted.

Yours David

I would get a little creeped out with that much info.

And this is his latest one

It's so cool and calm hearing from you, I may be nothing more than a
romantic idealist at heart and a down-earthed guy, I cannot help it. But
people either move me inside, deep in my soul, or they do not. I write you
because you did. You touched me with your words and made me feel safe. I
feel so cool and calm whenever i see your mail, how we will have a good
time together, but did not know where to start from.

I have never seen you, but with what we have shared about ourselves so far,
that all i want in a woman.... A commitment in a relationship to me simply
means a promise made between two people to be together forever and be
devoted to loving each other, be loyal to each other a commitment to love
no other person, being totally devoted to each other, a promise to be loyal
and truthful to each other in the relationship, A commitment a devotion a
dedication to something strong that becomes a part of someone’s life, a
part of someone’s soul, body ...and mind. A commitment of a heart to stay
true to a heart, a bond of togetherness ......Looking at what i have
written so far someone would think that a commitment is something easy to
do but the truth is that commitment is far more stronger that anything
except the power of love because I would say that commitment and love are
equals when it comes to the true human feelings ......I would say a
commitment would be the end chemistry of Love...... A commitment is like
embarking on a quest of a journey to the deep corners of the earth
searching for something you believe in so much that no obstacle can stop
you from doing so .......A commitment when you fully in love to someone you
Love and with no mind of doubts fully with Trust and Open Minded,
Understating, Considerate, Caring to each always be with the one
u love forever through hard and tough times, in sickness and in health ,for
better for worse ...A commitment to be a good respectful man to his wife
........Cos with every strong and happy family is the help of the support
of the wife and husband, it would be part of their daily lives ....Two
souls joined in heaven above, Two hearts bound by love, I see the stars in
your eyes, My fire in the dark of night, My strength and guiding light. A
deep love we hold never to die never again to be alone. Closing my eyes I
hear what you say the oneness we became thru all the hurt and pain never
changing your loving ways together never to part. Of love a gift from God
above, Deep inside our hearts forever as one. Now the question now is are
you ready for this commitment? For my Heart has opened up to you and
waiting for you to come take me as i am ..........What is love? you ask
It's a feeling in both mind and body A passion, a chemistry one might say
longing to be near, close, Long talks about nothing, Laughter and
sharing eyes filled with devotion, Not wanting to imagine life without the
other, Doing nothing together and having the best time. Well I think, you
know the answer already Listen to your heart with open ears you will hear
the is very clear....

I sit here and realize how strong i have become, with such confidence I
feel that I finally found that one. This feeling is so strong i am powerful
when he's present. It feels like a day of Christmas after opening my first
present. Thank you so much for praying about my next contract:)

Yours David

I don't think the person who wrote that actually speaks English as a first language. There are a lot of little errors someone who speaks English wouldn't make. We all make typos, but those aren't typo kind of errors - they're translation errors or errors from someone who doesn't speak the language fluently. Whoever this REALLY is probably pulled the pictures from somewhere online.
