Dating sites for the physically disabled
If you have somehow been living under a rock in a cave at the bottom of the ocean and don’t in fact know what ghosting is (and no, non-single people, you have no excuse to be ignorant of this cultural phenomenon), allow me to explain: Ghosting is simply when you stop replying to someone’s messages. I sat down with James, a 31-year-old single office worker, to grill him on why he ghosts women… I do it a few times every week and I genuinely don't feel guilty about it. Rachel: So you think ghosting is the kinder option than telling someone you're no longer interested? But sometimes there might be one I actually like and then it's a bit gutting if he just stops replying. James: Dating apps turn everyone into little emperors. So pre-dating apps (at 31 I'm positively prehistoric) you'd be a lot less fussy. James: If I've had a bad experience of someone who wouldn't take 'no' for an answer, does that make it a bit more justifiable? James: I, very politely, told a white lie and said I wasn't ready to date so soon after my last relationship. Although I question the truth behind it I was glad to have some closure (and was never going to contact him again and again! But to me, the sadness comes from unrequited affection, rather than how they did it.It could be on a dating app after just a few messages, after moving to Whats App or even after meeting up in person. Now I've got less tolerance when it comes to trying to find common ground with them. Everyone has to be attracted to someone physically, so if I re-examine someone's profile pictures and come to the conclusion that they're using flattering angles to hide how they really look, then I'd likely ghost for that too. She said that was fine, but over the next seven days I received four messages through four different social media sites, with attempts to change my mind. It's just as disheartening to hear 'there wasn't a spark' as there is to not receiving a response to a Whats App message. And I suppose if they do ghost you, that's as good as them saying they're not interested in you for whatever reason it may be.Such people, who may be real but impersonated people or fictitious characters played by the con artist, could include, for example, the wife or son of a deposed African leader who has amassed a stolen fortune, a bank employee who knows of a terminally ill wealthy person with no relatives, or a wealthy foreigner who deposited money in the bank just before dying in a plane crash (leaving no will or known next of kin), and similar characters.The money could be in the form of gold bullion, gold dust, money in a bank account, blood diamonds, a series of checks or bank drafts, and so forth.For example, in 2006, 61% of Internet criminals were traced to locations in the United States, while 16% were traced to the United Kingdom and 6% to locations in Nigeria.One reason Nigeria may have been singled out is the apparently comical, almost ludicrous nature of the promise of West African riches from a Nigerian prince.
While Nigeria is most often the nation referred to in these scams, they originate in other nations as well.
According to Cormac Herley, a researcher for Microsoft, "By sending an email that repels all but the most gullible, the scammer gets the most promising marks to self-select." In Nigeria, scammers use computers in Internet cafés to send mass emails promising potential victims riches or romance, and to trawl for replies.
