A Deceptive, Lying, electronic "friend" from HS

A year of texting, FBing every day with someone I used to know.....finding out lots of things were not as said. I'm just sick! I know I should cut bait.....why am I so sick about this?

I can't go into details much, but how do you deal with a huge let down like this?

    I guess some people just lie to try and "get" something ... trying to impress and be "more" than they really are. Sounds like this was someone you had a HS relationship with and the two of you were looking to rekindle. It sucks when it happnes ... but as I tell my kids, sometimes you just gotta move on!

    Run Run as fast as you can away from this poser, trust me, people who have something to hide and lie about who they are can be dangerous. I unfortunately know this from a very painful experience. As hard as it is to have "wasted" a year of communication with this individual, count your blessings that it didn't go any further and you and your family weren't hurt any further. Good luck, I say cut out your communication with this person.

    Yes. I completely, totally know this is the thing to do. This person was a perfect fantasy....my prince charming coming to sweep me away from this horrible, awful world I live in. That makes it harder. I'm still stuck here. Alone!

    Yep, been there, done that too unfortunately. I learned the hard way, just because we knew them in school doesn't mean we know who they are today. I'm sorry. :flowerforyou:

    That was probably the point... You were vulnerable to it and an easy mark. YOU are the only one that can get yourself out of what you're living. Time to drop this douchenozzle and do it. You can do it

    I wish there were something positive I could say about the internet and the lure that jerks like that find in the easy deception they are able to present. It does not matter if it's an old HS fling or some joe blow from bf anywhere, the internet is the perfect medium for todays charletons. Seek professional help to get you out of your current hell and use the internet to do your research and not as a means of social support. Even MFP, as it appears to be a sight where people gather for the same reason will have its share of lurkers and jerks that are just here to find a warm spot to screw. Don't let it be you. My .02 cents.

    Thankfully you found out now before things went even further. You can also use it as a time to reflect and learn about yourself. At what point did you begin to suspect things weren't as they seem? Why didn't you listen to your instincts? Things like that will help you in the next relationship.

    Also, don't be too hard on yourself. Everyone wants to be loved/adored/swept off their feet. Some people are just poopie masters of manipulation and know how to take advantage of that.

    Sometimes, you just get f*cked without enjoying it. That's what happened here. You should move on and realize that the person you cared about is not the real person. I'm sorry.

    address it and move on. Change your routine and keep busy. Better to find out now then later.

    I apologize. My first response was so cold. No matter what the issue you are in pain and I did not even address that. All the advice in the work is not going to help the sad and painful feeling you have right now. But perhaps the fact that you recognized this person for what they are will give you strength to get through it.
