    To OP: Sigh. Those are definitely the perils of giving of yourself online. You can't be totally sure of who you are talking to... nor of their real commitment to you. So we each have determine a safe level of disclosure for ourselves. (For some of us, it will be higher, for some lower -- the spot where you are comfortable having others know personal details about yourself.)
    Yes, it can be hard to strike that delicate balance between give and take. If one gives too much, one can easily feel used up and emotionally exhausted. My recommendation is to try not to get tear stains for others, but to continue to carefully lend out your gentle advice and guidance. If it feels right to you, it's probably a sign that you're going in the right direction. Here are a couple tissues, INTJMom and Jennifer.

    T'anks. *snorfle*

    Actually, Adam didn't really bother me, beyond mere annoyance of just confusing people and/or the insincerity. I think I have exposed enough about myself on this forum already that any tidbits of advice I give to someone who ends up being a 'bot is just a tiny drop in a great big bucket.

    Awesome joke.

    Can I join your family now?
    I'm glad you were so...... amused.

    I was actually serious though.

    But since you think I rock and you want to join my family, how could I possibly be offended or hurt?

    Okay, subtle references notwithstanding, I obviously noticed the same thing.
    However, he seems more like a fairly clueless person from where I'm standing. Of course he could always be a fairly clueless person with a purpose.

    Ah, I just noticed the "how to meet girls" thread. Interesting.
    Actually, Cze Cze sort of woke me up to it.
    I had been receiving subtle clues, but not adding them up.

    It was pretty obvious when his gender seemed to flip flop between every thread he started.
    I thought I noticed that once!

    Ten points for you! I hadn't really looked that carefully.

    Omg, I take away your cool points. That's it. Done.

    LMAO. I love you, INTJMom.

    And you have not taken away my amusement by admitting you were serious. In fact, that kind of adds to it. Which, you know, kind of makes me love you even more.

    He has 48 posts, and they are all in that same forum.
    I feel like he is taking advantage of us.

    When he asked for ideas for Valentine's Day, several times I was tempted to share something really personal that my husband did for me, but then I chose not to.
    I'm really glad of it now, because I would now feel deeply betrayed.

    I enjoy helping people,
    but I don't like being taken advantage of.
    I think this will shed some light on the true nature of Adam007.

    Well, it's nice to be loved by someone with such a beautiful avatar.

    I think ProteanMix merged all his threads together this afternoon after I started my thread.

    Sure it's dishonest and annoying- but are you really that personally offended? If any of us really cared we probably could've picked up the disrepencies. Perhaps a waste of time to share personal stories, then, but the posts are public anyway...
