She talks about wanting a relationship but not with me watch

    We're kind of close friends, been talking for 4 months, text every day although we haven't met yet. She says she wants to meet but keeps putting it off. She's shy and has low self esteem and has never had a relationship (neither have I).

    I've asked her if she wants to try a relationship a few times and she said no. Sometimes she tells me how she wishes she had a boyfriend, but whenever I hint at it she just ignores it.

    Meet up before thinking or talking about a relationship. Too late now, but try to meet up if you can.

    If you haven't ever skyped them or anything similar then be wary of catfishes.

    If they really don't want to/can't meet you then maybe it is worth giving up, sadly.

    Have you ever skyped or facetimed with this person? I don't know why I'm sensing catfish.

    Definitely not a catfish. I think she's just shy but it confuses me. Tbh though I'm kind of sick of putting in everything and just not getting it reciprocated. You're probably right.

    Unless you meet in person or skype, there's nothing to prove it isn't a catfish, not saying that it is one necessarily but your situation does raise eyebrows.

    Well she did send a picture of herself with the time and date on to prove she's not :rofl: she suggested skyping a while ago but I was hesitant and now she doesn't want to, same with meeting up smh

    Stop pursuing her, she isn't interested and nothing you do will change her mind. You're only going to get your feelings hurt. Distance yourself before you're in too deep.

    I know you're right but it's not that easy. She doesn't have many other friends, I can't just stop talking to her. Not that I even want to, but I know it's best for my own mental health.

    Anyone can put a time and date over a picture lmao. What else do you know that makes it certain she isn't a catfish?
    I was a catfish for years and I know all the tricks, so tell us more.. It will be obvious to me if she's real or not.

    No I mean she'd actually written the time and date on paper and showed it. I'm like 99% sure she's not but what would help you determine whether she is?

    So a proof picture? Did you ask her to do that? Did she send it straight away or delay it? Those are easy to fake in Photoshop.
    Also, do you have her on social networking websites, like FB or anything where you can see the people she knows irl?

    I did ask her to send it but she did it straight away.

    I don't, she doesn't have FB and doesn't like to give out her Twitter. Most of this is because she had a bad experience with someone she met online.

    If you've been friends for 4 months then there's no reason for her not to have you on twitter.
    When I was a catfished I only used twitter because FB etc was too much effort to fake.

    Does she have insta or snapchat?

    It rings alarms that you haven't got her on any social media where you can see the friends she has in real life.

    Maybe you should meet , her and try and have a serious convorsation with her , as I am in the same position as you right now and it's very complicated , but also annoying at the same time and you cannot figure out what they want and at start they are interested in you . I would say try and meet up and talk or just try and keep a distance, because you could get hurt and I know how it feels to get hurt its not a nice feeling , so to try and prevent that😉
