Falling for a Catfish has nothing to do with intelligence or rational thinking – it’s all about HOPE.
Of course, it’s important to have fun, relax, be yourself and enjoy the process, but try to maintain a healthy level of Dating Skepticism too.This is one situation where it is important to listen to your intuition, it’s there for a reason.Your unconscious mind gives you hints when it suspects someone is not the real deal, listen to it!If they move too quickly into the realm of love and commitment, try not to be flattered. This should be a massive red flag (but unfortunately, many people are seduced by this).
If they ask you for cash, this is an indicator that their intentions are based on something other than finding love – walk away!
