Looking? I don't think I want to go there....

I've noticed that lots of people take online relationships so seriously that they forget that the person could still be lying through their teeth or fingertips as the case may be. I don't want to be a downer, but I've seen people pretend to be female when they weren't, pretend to be pregnant, pretend to ill, pretend to be friends, even. Over a period of time the truth will out, but even then we never truly know someone online until we've met them or at the very least talked to them on the phone and that's not totally reliable. All we know is what they tell us, and it could all be a story line they are feeding us. I'm not so jaded that I don't ever believe people, but I genuinely worry about people falling for sob stories. Playing on someone's feelings is a rotten joke; falling for a sob story is a cruel awakening.
