After a month he admitted he was falling in love with me and that the anticipation of our meeting was consuming him.
He also told me he was ready to marry me and wanted me to have his baby.
He soon apologized and told me he was new on Tinder and didn't know what I was actually looking for and that he feared I might have still been in touch with other guys or my ex.
From that moment on he built up day after day, hour-after-hour, the character of the perfect man.
He told me about his childhood in Florida in a traditional family, devoted to principles like true lifetime love, respect and loyalty.
He told me about his ex-girlfriend of four years, who repeatedly cheated on him every time he was on a mission.
Being stubborn by nature I decided to investigate and so for three days I checked him out online until I found a secondary Facebook profile to the one I already knew about, which was available only to his relatives. I clicked on her profile..to see.finally I found what I didn't know I'd been looking for.
He told me how that experience hurt him and made it very hard for him to trust a woman again.
He told me he felt like we knew each other, although we had not met yet, and that he strongly believed our lives had crossed paths for a reason.
He even considered coming to Italy to meet my parents.
Everything I'm saying was supported by voice notes, his tone, his words sounded so genuine and every time I showed him doubts about this online, he begged me to give him a chance at least to meet up.
