It started out innocently enough…I placed a personal ad, I met a guy who seemed real nice. I fell in love and we dated for over a year. Then one day I was pursing the ads for a friend, and discovered that his personal ad was active. It had been active the WHOLE time we were dating, even after we agreed to be monogamous.
He claimed that it was carelessness, but admitted that he had received inquiries from other women. I dumped him right then, and it’ll be really hard to trust anyone I meet online again. The moral of the story–do not assume that your partner has taken down their personal ad after you agree to date exclusively. Make sure that it’s gone, or you might get really hurt later down the road.
