Now you've got me wondering...
I was contacted by this guy, Marcus Patal Gustav on Zoosk.com last week. The whole familiar story that I am reading on here, he's an oil rig contractor that has his own crew. Texting daily, feeding the same BS that I'm reading here - widower, wife died of lung cancer - very lonely. Daughter, 18 goes to college in Phoenix to be a nurse.
We were going to meet in person on Saturday, and when I questioned time/place to meet - he had to fly out to Phoenix to go see her (He was in New Hampshire), then supposedly when he got to the airport, she called him and told him not to bother going out as she had to deal with DACA issues.
They've been in the US since 2001, originally from Sweden. His daughter was 2 year old when they came here. So we texted Saturday evening. Asked if we could meet on Sunday, and he said sure. Then when texting Sunday AM, he told me he was in meetings all day with his crew as they were leaving for a new contract on Tuesday. Asked to meet Sunday evening when he was done with his meetings, claims he was too tired. Asked to meet for coffee Monday evening when I got out of work and he had too much to do to get ready to leave for his trip...said he'd only be gone 4 weeks rather than the normal 6 weeks.
Keeps assuring me when he returns we'll spend time together. Keeps telling me how much I am just what he is looking for in a best friend, soul mate, lover, etc. etc. I did speak with him on the phone and he had a very heavy accent.
Just texted him asking him to send me a picture of him with his crew on the rig. Let's see if he sends it. My guard is up now! Glad I came across this blog!
