If you or anyone you know is using this site, please tell them to keep an eye out for any one who contacts them and starts asking questions about their children. The first time I was contacted by a user who raised suspicion, he portrayed himself as a single father with a pre-teen daughter. After the initial introductions he started talking about how he had gotten a call from the school saying his daughter was acting up in class. He then started asking for advice on disciplining her. I though it strange so I told him I was not comfortable telling him how to discipline his child. He pressed me further asking how I disciplined my children. If I spanked them? And if I did was it with or without clothing and what did I say while doing it? After receiving those questions, I knew my instinct was correct and proceeded to block him and report him to the site.
Today I received another message from a different user (different profile). This time he moved much quicker with the questions, asking if he could ask a question about my childhood and before I could respond another message came through asking me how many children I have.
I immediately told him not to contact me again, blocked and reported him again.

Unfortunately there is no way for me to post a warning to women on that site so I am spreading the word the best way I know how.

That's scary. I think you get all kinds of weirdos with free sites like that. If I were going to use a site, I would use a well known site that you have to pay for. It seems like the creeps want free anyway.

Wow that's really creepy!  Thanks for the warning!

You don't have any pics of your children on there do you?  No offense but if you do I would take them off quickly!

Absolutely not! In the area where they ask if you have children, it only says that I do. No other info.

There are always weirdos on those sites. You just have to read the red flags. No posting pics of your kids or their ages. I'd put that I had kids but thats it.

You don't realize how creepy people are until you try dating again.... I tried for a few weeks then was like "DONE!" and got off all those site.
