I have been talking to a person from fitbit on my phone for a little over a month now. He ? goes by the name Patrick B. W. on fitbit.
He asked to text me instead of using fitbit to talk and I was ok with that. I wanted someone to talk to and encourage as well as be encouraged since going into winter, I always struggle to get my steps in.
He appears to be a scammer. I say, "appears" because he asked for a $100 iTunes card as an emergency for work and I know you can get them online. He said he needed it for a update for his pipeline job presentation which should be able to be done from the job. He set off my radar a few times asking about my finances (credit card debt), where I bank, etc. but he always dropped it when I asked why it was important to know that.
He talked of being honest in all relationships (friends or more) and how he had lost his wife 5 years ago but was now looking for his second soul mate. I made it clear I am not looking for that, just need a friend and he said he was ok with that. He talked about how love is everything in life and how important it was to him. He was nice and he did not seem to mind talking about mundane things going on in my life or his. He says he is a millionaire and will send pictures of his home or someone's home. I made it clear I am not interested in his money, just friendship.
I guess I am blogging about this to warn all you people that use fitbit. I have had friend requests several times on there from people with a male picture but says female in bio. I ignore these requests but he seemed real. I was not looking for a relationship and that is why. I always seem to attract the weird ones, the users.
I am so DISAPPOINTED. In the past this would have sent me over the edge, binge eating, beating myself up mentally, giving up because I am not worth it. Thank God, I have grown, I have learned, I am loving myself. I am grateful I have my friends here that I have met in person and was able to see a normal relationship. Always trust your intuition.
I long for that kind of relationship. Yes, my RV friends, I am talking about you. A man that will support me, not smother me or try to control me, that will not abuse me, that will listen if I have a bad day, that will help me with the chores, that is willing to RV and loves music, wine, and dogs... LOL !! Someone that will try my cooking even if he thinks he will die from it... LOL ! I know what I want. I am just not out looking for it. I am trusting God to bring it to me in his time because my husband material radar is broken.
The news today was talking about fake Uber drivers. It is not a safe world so please be diligent and stay aware to stay safe. Trust your gut. It is your angels keeping you safe.
