I've met a few guys this way and while I haven't met my sneakers this way my BFF did. She met him and like a week later they were engaged, and have spent everyday together since. That was 7 years ago.
Most of us are not so lucky in love. Well at least I haven't been.
The potential of on-line dating opened up a whole new world for us didn't it? It was a way to put yourself out there without really putting your self out there if you know what I mean. It's not like meeting new singles (ahem after a certain age) is so easy.
We go to these sites in good faith trusting that the profiles we look at are other singles looking for the same thing we are, some sneakers. The reality is though this is not always the case. People lie. I know I said it and it's shocking isn't it! I know none of you would lie on a profile... would you?
Well here you go just to prove how important it is to be careful the news has the face of Thomas James Newman all over it. This 36 year old man goes on these sites to meet women, goes out with them a few times and then does stuff like STEAL THEIR CARS! Seriously? Ya what a pathetic bleepity bleep.
This is the guy.
Apparently he's not that smart because he actually uses his real name before taking off with his dates cars, laptops, or whatever it is he can get his hands on. It seems they are linking him to 6 different accounts of theft in the Vancouver area.
So this is where I say be careful. Don't just take everything at face value, use your common sense, and if you don't have common sense follow these tips:
Now with that in mind happy shoe shopping and may you find your perfect sneakers!
