I was contacted by someone not too long ago asking for help. I am posting this to put the information out there because chances are, this person is playing the same game (that is, if its not the same person this website is about, who knows). This information is being put out there for others who are searching for answers or looking for more information; wondering why all the drama, lies, and excuses are happening with their online relationship.
