Me — 07:04 AM
I use my gmail account the most - I set it up especially when I signed up on here, you can still email there no problem ... sadly if you're in Afghanistan, though, the time difference can be an issue ...

Daniel — 08:27 AM
so tell me how long have you been on this site and what experience have you had since you joined ?
Me — 08:29 AM
Been on for about 3 weeks now ... Not sure what to say about the experience so far ... "interesting" perhaps ... How about you?
Daniel — 08:30 AM
well just joined some hours ago and nothing so far apart from talking with you
Daniel — 08:31 AM
so what are you looking for on this dating site ?
Me — 08:33 AM
I'm starting to get used to the fact that things are not always as they seem ... But keep trying to keep an open mind - so I will apologise in advance if I ask lots of questions
Daniel — 08:34 AM
oh no don't worry just ask me anything
Me — 08:34 AM
I don't know many people in Sydney so it was originally to get out and make friends ... With the underlying hope to find a compatible partner out there
Daniel — 08:35 AM
so how serious are you with looking for a partner or soul mate
Me — 08:39 AM
I need to get to know people before I declare undying love - I wouldn't be on here if I wasn't serious about finding someone to share my life with ... And it's a good way to get to know people better this way cos I can be quite shy face to face until I know someone better ... This way it breaks the ice first
Daniel — 08:41 AM
oh okay i can understand
Daniel — 08:44 AM
so tell me more about yourself ,any hobbies,any kids
Daniel — 08:49 AM
any kids ?
Me — 08:50 AM
No kids what about u?
Daniel — 08:50 AM
i have a son
Me — 08:50 AM
How old? And where is he?
Daniel — 08:50 AM
my is 10years old and in grade 5 his name is Mark
Daniel — 08:51 AM
he is in the state where he is been taken care of by a care taker and the military base force
Daniel — 09:00 AM

Me — 09:02 AM
Glorified title for an office worker dealing with system issues and spreadsheets ... Zzzzzzzz haha
Me — 09:14 AM

Me — 09:26 AM

Daniel — 09:29 AM

Me — 08:35 PM
Just read your email ... you're right, there is a happy ending in there ... how long ago did you lose your parents?
Daniel — 08:35 PM
well it's been very long as my dad died two years after i was born
Daniel — 08:37 PM
well my mum died after i got the chance into the force
Daniel — 08:39 PM
life has really been sorrowful and painful for me during the past and sometimes i hate talking about it because it makes me cry by bringing back past memories
Daniel — 08:39 PM
yes i guess so but for me life was never fair to me in my growing age
Me — 08:41 PM
everyone has their burdens to carry - sadly some hurt much more than others ... you can at least be grateful you had such a loving relationship with your wife - many people never get to experience such love
Daniel — 08:42 PM
well i did but today if i may ask where is she to comfort me when i needed it the most ,who will be there for me in times of pains and troubles
Me — 08:51 PM

Daniel — 09:30 PM
have you been able to open your hotmail
Daniel — 09:32 PM
so can you try and do it as it will be better for us talking over there
Me — 09:35 PM
remind me again why hotmail is better? I wasn't quite awake this morning haha
Daniel — 09:37 PM
well that place we can chat and it's where i know we can chat more this place is a site and it's better to leave this site if we have each other
Me — 09:37 PM
I normally use Yahoo Messenger
Daniel — 09:43 PM
then try setting up the hotmail
Daniel — 09:57 PM
can we chat on the massenger instead of here?
Me: hi there - fancy seeing you here ...
Daniel: whenever i feel adventurous,i took my gun and go for more practice
Daniel: and also hunt for bush meat
Me: not quite sure I can picture you in red in Afghanistan doing rifle practice
Me: have to admit I quite like the colour red too - deep jewel tone reds ... not so different to that sitting in a wine glass
Me: excuse my ignorance but what do you call "bush meat"? wild boar or something??
Me: what happened to you last night ... all of a sudden I was baking for you, then you disappeared
Daniel: oh good that is nice...
Daniel: oh i had very bad internet connections yesterday..am sorry for that ok..
Me: you're lucky to have such a lot of access over there
Daniel: Yes that true..and you know as milltary camp, internet is very important to us
Me: very true - so what do you actually do in your role
Daniel: am incharge of weapons and aminitions sector
Me: how long have you been over there? and how much longer left to go/
Daniel: i have been there for a very long time..but i will be coming home very soon and that will be next month but i don't know the exact date yet.
Me: what will you do when you get home? what is the first thing you can't wait to do?
Daniel: as i am here talking with you,am praying that things should get serious with me and you so that when am coming,i will come to you straight away from here before going to see my son..
Me: I would have thought your biggest priority would be to see your son ... family is really important
Daniel: Yes that is true..family if very important.having a wonderful woman in my life to spend the rest of my life with is very important too..
Me: relationships are important, I agree ... but I truly believe your son should always take priority ... if he knew that you had finished your tour and not come straight home to be with him, he'd be really hurt ... I don't have kids, so I probably shouldn't really comment, but I'm honest to a fault and speak my mind sorry
Daniel: i think he is going to understand me very well..it is been a very long time that i have been with a woman and my son too is growing now..it is been long time he had mother love..but am not here because of him
Me: hey, you're back?
Daniel: i will be going for patrols
Me: no problem hun
Daniel: i was called to check up on my troops
Daniel: so please i need to go now ok
IM 15 Feb 2012 12:03:15 AM
Me: what have you been up to since we last spoke?
Daniel: We had so many things going on here...i had a speech on saturday..and also our internet cables were destroy by tourist
Daniel: So we were unable to connect to internet for some days now..but i am here now with you and i am very happy see you on here again
Me: you're really sweet
Daniel: thanks but not as sweet as you are
Daniel: So if i may ask .are you still on the dating site..please be honest with me
Me: yes, my profile is still showing ... but it doesn't show me as being online ... and I sent you a message this morning on there that I will be removing it at the end of the week
Daniel: because me i have not been there since we started talking on here
Daniel: as i have told you already..i don't like it out there because it is a place were people search for love and if you are still there that means you are still searching for someone
Daniel: Because i am very serious and i am looking for someone ok..So if you are serious and you see somethings in me that you like and you want to be with me on here..then we will have to be out of there so that we can be here alone with each other to know more about ourself and i hope you get me right
IM 15 Feb 2012 12:26:45 AM
Me: I appreciate your honesty, but we are still getting to know each other and whether we are compatible ... I don't believe it is realistic to make undying declarations of love after one or two days of chatting ... real relationships take time to build ... and it's especially difficult when the people in question are miles apart on the other side of the world from each other
Daniel: oh yes that is true..i never mentioned anything of love..am just say we should have a private time on here.and get to know each other well..
Me: am happy to chat on here, or via email and get to know each other better
Daniel: You mean you are talking to some two guys?
Daniel: on badoo or here on the massenger?
Daniel: Have you talk with some other guys on here before?
Daniel: i mean anyone serious on here before?
Me: define serious ... just kidding
Me: yes, I have spoken to someone earlier that I really liked ... he turned out to be a scammer ...
Daniel: what happens and you get to know that he is a scammer?
Me: I'm also speaking to one guy still now that we have agreed to be friends and remain in contact as such
Me: what do you think happens?
Daniel: where is he?i mean the guy you are still talking to?
Me: what does it matter where he is?
Me: are you still there?
And he now remains out of contact
... haven't removed him from my chat list yet, but now I've recorded everything here for posterity, I'm happy to go ahead and do that. I knew he was a scammer as soon as he said he was with the US Military deployed in Afghanistan, as I'd just been scammed by the guy before him with the same, and the actually got as far as requesting financial help!
