I catfished my online boyfriend and he took the bait | The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: A FRIEND told me my new online boyfriend was duping me – so I set up a fake Facebook profile to trap him.

I’m 33 and met this man on a dating site two weeks ago. He said he was 34.

Although he wasn’t good-looking, he had great banter and made me feel sexy.

We’ve chatted every night since and I’ve started to fall for him. He said he was falling for me too, and wanted to meet.

But last night my friend came over. After a few drinks, I showed her his photo.

To my dismay she told me she’d dated him too, but had dumped him because he’s a liar and a cheat.

I wanted to be sure, so I set up a fake Facebook profile. He took the bait and started chatting “me” up.

But when I confronted him, he said his account had been hacked.

I want to believe him but my friend says I’m being naive. What should I do?

DEIDRE SAYS: Imagine this was happening to a friend. What would you tell them?

This situation is already making you feel insecure – that’s why you set up a fake Facebook profile.

Plus, your friend has told you about her experience with this guy and warned you off him.

Sadly, it sounds like you would be wise to break up and block him.
