Meatloaf New Member I think your ex is just trying to mess with your head.

If she loses interest because of that you know that she was after that - sexual entertainment - and who knows how many other she is playing for her joy.
This too is a reason to either see in real life or stay as pen pals ie.
Also remember she can be someone else than she claims until you see her.Apr 01, · So I went online, and found a whole new world. I began chatting to men online in private chat forums, concealing any obvious indentifiers of who I . Do you want just to know why - or to change that?
