Though not all participants here can be my “Brain trust” but there are enough members that come up with the good ideas. My membership here gained companionship plus good ideas.
I have met someone in this forum who I thought was a real person. Maybe I was just too foolish and too stupid to believe in everything he said he was. I admired him for his superb advices, and being so hilarious. Hopeless as I am, I made myself believed that this person is really someone who I can confide with since we shared the same sentiments only to find out that he was just using my weakness and loneliness to his advantage. He have made mentioned of several reasons why he is in this forum, one of which was, he was hoping to meet somebody whom he can share life with and to spend with the rest of his life. This person is really too good to be true.
I am writing this post, not only to share my stupidity but also for some hopeless and lonely like me who might fall to his pit. This is I think a wake up call for those people like me. I may not have the ability and capacity to advice and make people feel good about, but my experience teaches me to be cautious that sometimes, hopeless and lonely people like me can be the people that online predator prey on. These online predators, are those who always come up with the very good ideas and made you feel at ease with their hilarious ways of comforting people in need. These predators are usually very good at sniffing out their prey. Be very cautious!
Anyways, I thank this forum because I learn many things in so many ways. Thank you and more power! God bless
