Im going on a lunch date soon with a man i met via LinkedIn 😂...hes almost twice my age. Been texting for over 5 months now.

Im wondering if we need to have a video call with in depth conversation before meeting? We video called months ago but it was for like a minute and was naughty stuff going on...

I feel a bit worried im meeting him. I don't have enough information as to what he looks like or sounds like..he wont send me pictures and doesn't wanna talk over the phone.

The last time i saw him on video call was like for a minute honestly he looked good and sounded ok. Just think i want to talk more before committing to a lunch date.

Is he avoiding me?

Him not talking over phone or sending you pictures of himself is a BIG red flag!!! Essentially you don’t know exactly who you’re meeting, they could be a complete cat fish or worse. Meeting in a public place is a very good idea until you know exactly what he looks like, or only meet him on the condition that he FaceTimes/video calls you first.

Well we video called once i did see him. And he's not a catfish based on his LinkedIn hes's legit . I just want more pictures and more voice conversation if that makes sense. ...he does have a linked picture. And i just wanna make sure i like what he looks like..i do like everything i have seen so far but wanna see him again to confirm my feelings

He is good looking. ..i most have claimed something else like he is really successful....basically a company director 😂😬....i just wanna see him again. Curiosity killed the cat? I don't want the cat though to be killed by pushing for pics and ****. The cat being our date

Also im worried about what kinda conversation we are gonna have. I wanna hear him talk normal over the phone. I don't wanna go there and be ambushed by weird talk of some horny rich guy...

mhm, lies, but i don't care enough to argue. he's probably not a 'director' at all, just some ****ing rapist like most of them. wouldn't it be nice if they all just dropped dead? ah, wishful thinking

**** france. he's an old rapist preying on young people. i can tell. from all your previous posts. believe me, i can spot a ****ing predator from miles away. i genuinely hope his plane crashes. don't have a problem with 'alcohol and drug use', stop trying to change the subject.

Never said you have a problem ..you said you were misusing these stuff and ......just checking if you're doing something to prevent it from happening again. ..lol hes not a rapist or catfish...hes a busy man...this date took 5 months to organize so stop chatting ****...

I don't know about him being a predator. ...he seems genuine ...and i know his interest involves sexual fetishes 😂..he's upfront and honest..

My question is more about video calling before dates for online matches..stick to the theme of the question or i will report your posts

no, i didn't.
and of course he is. you are a naive little girl, and it's so obvious. but sure. go, meet him, and see what happens. but it might become the biggest regret of your life. and feel free to report me for giving you the most important warning you've ever heard.
