    hahahahahahahahahaha

    Nice one. My advice would be to look as far back in his post history as possible. I'm 100% sure you'll lose interest if he's remotely close to the typical TSR user.

    Do some analysis work and background research. Look through his posting history, especially if he's commented on relationship posts, that might give you some scope of some of his views. Check what threads he's made in the past, his visitor messages, the lot

    If you met a guy irl you'd do this with his FB wouldn't you? So why not do the same with his TSR if that's the only thing about him you have access to

    TSR is much more enclosed than Facebook is. Chances are you wouldn't get any reliable information off here about a person purely based on some forum posts. Maybe just the scope of the personality, that's about it.

    Best way forward here is to give it time, then based on some very basic impressions decide whether to move it along onto FB where it becomes much more straight-forward. Stalking on TSR is unreliable.

    Idk I still think it's possible to weed out a potential f**k boy based on their forum posts on here...

    I don't know anyone who does this, lol


    OP; Be careful, confirm who they say they are, and then just go from there really. When/if you meet, do so in a public place ONLY.
