Do You Believe In Falling In Love With Pictures?

I have up to like five cases where i met people on the internet especially Nigerians and immediately they see my picture, they will start to say all sort of sweet words and telling me they are falling in love as they are seeing the picture which i don't normally believe. Is it really true people can fall in love with pictures?

Hmm, I get this all the time - as soon as I log onto Yahoo / Windows Live Messenger, it starts.

They always start with "asl"? Bearing in mind, I absolutely HATE text talk, at least on a mobile, you're a bit limited for space, and it can't be helped. But in an email? Nope.

After about 2 lines of text, suddenly, they reckon they're in love with me, despite the fact I've told them I'm engaged, and my display picture clearly shows me with my fiancee.

For reference, I've cut and pasted one I received recently. This "girl" even sent pictures of a very beautiful girl via email. I was amused, for a start, the pictures were obviously taken by a professional photographer in a proper studio, and the girl in the picture was certainly used to modelling. Alarm bells were ringing loudly at this point.

I asked her for a phone number, which she declined, saying her phone was broken. Hmmm. Bells were practically screaming at me now. I insisted I could call her at her friends, or even a friends mobile, but she insisted none of her friends had mobiles. Yeah right.

She did however, say she was due to buy a phone in the next few days, and she'd call me when she did. What this really means, is the writer chatting with me is a guy, probably with a voice deeper than Barry Whites, and a beard just as dense! Saying "she'd" call me in a few days equated to, when a female was available to make the call, who at least WOULD sound feminine.

Here's part of the conversation we had on Yahoo. Sorry it's so long, but bear with me, it's good to recognise a scam when it happens,

tracy nike (25/07/2007 11:54:10): why?

siena774 (25/07/2007 11:54:47): Because, to get a very nice place, could cost you more monthly, than if you decided to get a mortgage.

tracy nike (25/07/2007 12:05:49): why ?

siena774 (25/07/2007 12:06:20): Because, a lot of folk, guys and girls show their bits on webcams.

tracy nike (25/07/2007 12:06:40): why should they do that

tracy nike (25/07/2007 12:06:42): itz bad

siena774 (25/07/2007 12:06:55): It's not nice.

siena774 (25/07/2007 12:07:09): Can you see my picture on here?

There was one that was chatting with me sometime ago, I used my picture as my chat page background, come and see love, the guy was preaching, serious love, and then he asked me what i do for a living I told him that he will not like to hear that, he said he will that i should just tell him that he wants to know what his future wife does for a living, I now told him that I am a thief, he said i was just lying I now told him that I am able to tell him cos we are not seeing face to face but that is my true profession but that I hope to stop as soon as i get someone serious to marry, he asked me what kind of thief, I told him that I belong to a gang that rubs banks and stay on the high way, come see how the guy take off, he said he cannot marry a thief oh, he started preaching that he is a Christian that he cannot do that. in fact before I could say jack the say make i no chat with am again. this was the same guy that was confessing love without condition, love no holds barred just now, he was as far as telling me that his house address that he gave me before and phone number that they were fake that he does not stay there.

I was just laughing.

I think it's dangerous to fall in love with someone in pics because ultimately, the real person often ends up not looking as perfect as the pic or at least as good as the pic and then you can wind up disapointed. If you find yourself falling in love with a person purely from a pic, catch yourself quickly and try to meet up with the person sooner than later, so you know what you are getting. It hurts to invest so much time only to finally meet the real person and find that they fall short of expectation. Just my 2 cents of advice.

i dont think its love its more of "hmmm she got a nice body, i wont mind getting to know her maibe i might be lucky and get some" or better still it could be "hmmm dude fine as hell wont mind knowing him and all, and maibe we might hook up sometime u never know" but most times its a matter of the guy or girl appreciating the work of GOD nothing more.

the one that pisses me the EFFFFFFFFF! off the most though. is them peoples u meet online and before they get to know ur name they've started asking for favors. I for one i'm an equal opportunity person. if u add me to ur messenger list i'll accept the invite but the minute u talk crap. ur name if on the autoblock list sharp sharp. whether male or female. and when u tell them off they get pissed and call u all sorts of names enough to makeup a brand new dictionary. my own is even if u gonn try to dupe me at least get me name right before u start asking for my home addy and all the crap peeps ask for.

As long as its ONLY LADIES who have "seen your picture" and say they start falling in Love, then everything is OK with you and you should continue savoring the complements.

By the time one or two naija guys start telling you that they have fallen in love with you because of your picture, then there is a wahala at hand.

i think the guys are getting it wrong, no one falls in love with picture tho you can like a picture and care to know the person. girls that say i love you to you online have viewed your profile, location and stuff. they are just some rubbish girls that disgrace other good girls with their rubbish acts. i don't believe people fall in love with pictures either tho you can like someone through his/her pic.

insane! v insane, how on earth can someone see your picture for the first time and say "i love u babay, luv u so much"

or this, only a picture o {this is a real message, sorry if the person is u, but i doubt if the person knows himself anymore}

"i am mailing you on behave of getting to marry you.i have been watching you i believe that we too will make a good husband and wife thing.

i have been trying to reach you by phone and also see if we can have dinner to talk everything over but you seem so far from me.this is really serious anywere you want us to wed just let me know .i will be waiting for your reply and the best thing to know is that i will always make you happy forever"

am sorry but those people that fall in love with pictures, need intervention, i mean DIVINE INTERVENTION, yes lord!

i agree with you that it's mere attraction. there are better ways to handle such situation. you need to get to know someone you're attracted to before you can talk about love. People don't fall in love with pictures, they only appreciate it and maybe want to know more about the person in it.

How could you fall in love with a picture? Like it was already said before me, lust over a picture maybe, but not love a picture. C'mon.
