So if you are messaging with someone and it sounds like this, throw your computer out the window and run. So, yeah, this might be a real thing people do and we should all be more discerning, even in the presence of a striking photo. They send you invitations or links to check them out at a different site. This is often a sign that either they are musicians/artists/actors trying to get views on their personal pages or further their careers, or maybe even lure you to their pornographic sites. All of the rules you use in real life, use online and don’t let a handsome smile or sexy, but slightly incoherent banter soften your instincts.
