It started on July 17th chatting online on POF. David F messaged me and asked me where I’m from, how long I’ve been using Pof, are you looking for serious relationship? I responded, I’m from San Francisco, been on Pof 8 month, yes I’m looking for serious relationship. I’m not here for games, BS, lies. He responded, I’m from Albany, Ca. Have a son who is 3 yrs old name Ryan, loss my wife a year and a half. I been single for 2 years now and I am tired of sharing things alone. I’m in the navy as combatants engineer. I got deployed to South Africa, Nigeria and I been here for 2 month. I will be coming back August. I am too looking for serious relationship and I hate games, lies and dishonest. Then he said let’s get off from this site and chat privately. I said sure ok. So he had asked for my number and said do I have WhatsApp added to my phone I said yes. We ended up chatting on WhatsApp and he had deleted his POF dating site and asked me to do the same. He screenshot the app where you log in and deleted his account. I didn’t care I still had my account open. I did not show it to him or he asked but I did not screen shot. He calls me babe every time we chat. He tells me he is looking for serious relationship, he hates games, lies and dishonest. He is tired of sharing things alone, he wants to fine someone to share his life with. He asked me If I have dated military guy before I said yes and married now divorced 5 yrs married over 8 years. He said, does it bother you that I’m in the navy. I said no we are just chatting. He said ok, I asked him if he has a big family here in San Francisco, any siblings.

He said outside from my tent my friend is asleep and I’m using his wifi and if he catches me using it he will fight with me? I said fight with you? What do you mean? He said he will be upset and I don’t want to fight him. So he showed me his message for his wifi. He said can you buy me a iTunes Card babe $50 it will last me 2 weeks. I don’t want to miss a second talking to you. I told him ok so what I did was purchased the card by cash. I didn’t think of it so I was trying to help him out. I said ok.
