Watch out for predators – there are people out there that prey on us – they have an agenda – they are looking for a partner who can take care of them – emotionally, financially etc. I got suckered by one and when I realized what was happing, had to threaten them with the police to leave me alone.
Very difficult to admit I was vunerable, bu we are.
They pretend to empathise, maybe be in the same situation – they’re not. They may be “bereaved” but they are not where we are. I never knew such people existed – to quote an old US TV police series, “be careful out there”
Unfortunately, it’s made me very wary of any new people I meet now.
