It's not the website's fault that people are liars, cheaters, and scammers. I began to do some digging and saw that the guy had ads posted on several sites on the internet, posting for sexual contact with other males.One guy I met was an alcoholic who couldn't keep a job and was trying to get over a long-term girlfriend who had dumped him. And he used the SAME online name (and photos) on all the sites. The next day he texted me, asking if I wanted to come over to snuggle and watch a movie. The most recent guy I met on the site has become a good friend.Two childhood sweethearts, Rick and Jessie, use text messages, phone calls, and e-mail to manage the distance between them as Jessie attends college on the East Coast of the United States and Rick moves between Great Britain and the American West.Shortly before a summer reunion, their technological ties fail when Jessie is hospitalized after a traumatic attack.Frightening because he had two minor children living at home that I suspected he'd taken from their mom in the divorce by coercion. Not bad looking but short (which he was honest about in his profile). We e-mailed on OKC for several months then he decided he was getting off because he was having no luck and he said he was tired of seeing all the weapons and naked pics.In another instance, I went on one date with a guy. Jeans and a polo-style shirt but expensive material. He lives several hours away and we e-mail frequently.(Dalati Nohra/Handout via REUTERS) Marine Le Pen, French National Front (FN) political party leader and candidate for the French 2017 presidential elections, shakes hands with Cardinal Bechara Boutros Rai of Lebanon, the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch and the Whole Levant, as French deputy Gilbert Collard looks on, in Bkerke, north of Beirut, Lebanon February 21, 2017.(REUTERS/Mohamed Azakir) Marine Le Pen, French National Front (FN) political party leader and candidate for French 2017 presidential election, rejects a headscarf for her meeting Lebanon's Grand Mufti Sheikh Abed el-Lateef Daryan in Beirut, Lebanon February 21, 2017.

Jones blames digital innovations for the misunderstandings that prevent Rick and Jessie’s reunion.
It’s no surprise this theme runs through a romance novel: it reflects a wider cultural fear that these technologies impede rather than strengthen human connection.
