    Online dating heartbreak

    Hi guys..just want to..i dont know i just want insights and enlightenment from what ive experienced on a dating site. Ive joined a dating site just 2 weeks ago ive had a lot of encounter and theres only one guy that stand out among them. The guy was from Texas city and he was nice, romantic and seems decent on our first 2 encounter. But then on the 3rd time he demanded a whole body pic at first he suggested a pic wearing a swimsuit then when i said must i wear a swimsuit he said tank top n shorts will do. I said im gonna send it to him whenever i feel like it and all he said was Jesus ur something else and sent his shirtless photos. I sent a body pic from internet which he recognized.im not even sure if hes a fake account ive tried to check using his name n number but i didnt find any he said he deleted his social media accounts becoz of the previous relationship and wanted to forget and escape from everyone.but i thought we werent very serious yet so i let his explanation be. Ive sent him a whole body pic but im wearing a tshirt and shorts, looking decent actually. After that he expressed that hed just like me to be his friend im friendzoned...is it me or him?

    As far as you know this guy could be in prison.

    No one is real in on line dating UNTIL you meet in person and actually meet the person you have been chatting with.

    You are not heartbroken since you never met or had a relationship. Disappointed yes, heartbroken no.

    If you are going to do online dating you need to get an education on how it works and who is out there. You seem to naive right now to do it safely. Be careful and if a guy wants pics of you partially clothed before you even know him he IS NOT the guy you are looking for.

    Be very careful about sending images of yourself. Next thing you know your picture's on a porn site or someone's using your identity.

    This has catfish written all over it. Like I always say, if it don't feel right, then it's not. I agree with the above post, don't be sending pics to a stranger over the net. You will regret it.

    Some guys will romance women on the net and use the nude/topless photos of them for blackmailing purposed to exploit money out of ya. They threaten to send those photos to all the people on your social media. So think very carefully before you do anything regarding the internet.

    Google articles on safety tips for online dating. Realize that everything is fantasy, such as your ideas that he's romantic, until you actually meet and spend months and months seeing who the person actually is over time in 3D.

    I would put a hold on OLD until social distancing is no longer an issue, because you will want to meet someone within 2 weeks of communicating with them. You don't want to invest a lot of time into someone who might be a one and done meet up. When I did OLD, 9 out of 10 times it went no further than the first date. Try Meetup.com as a less stressful way to meet single men your age.

    Agreed with all the above.
    But what jumped out to me was your title of heart break.

    Along with exercising caution, please be mindful of NOT getting attached to someone electronically after only talking to them a couple times.

    You should remain neutral with anyone you haven't really met in person. If not you'll find online dating to be really discouraging and you'll continue to be a target to creeps who call themselves Jesus.

    Good grief, are you really that naive? A complete stranger is asking for body photos of yourself, he's actually hoping for nudes so I am glad you didnt do that. You can end up splashed around the world for the rest of your life if you do stupid things like nudes or semi nudes.

    This guy being romantic? He's a STRANGER! You dont know him or anything about him. Stop being so foolish as you can definitely live to regret it.

    Skip OLD until times are better and you can meet real people in your own area.

    Completely agree. Please don't date online or pretend to -this has nothing to do with dating.

    Delete and block him. He's looking for sexting. Anyone who asks for or sends half undressed pics before you even meet is looking for sex/sexting. Never send pics like that, just head and dressed full length shots.
