Lied to by a sociopath through online chat and now depressed
Welcome to BB. Sadly being catfished happens to nearly everyone at some point who gets involved in chat rooms. I know i fell for it at one point when going through a difficult time in my marriage. With the exception of the people who catfish for money i honestly dont think most set out to harm others, they do it out of their own feelings of being inadequate and when they are at the point of being to emotionally envolved actually end it rather than having the other person hurt by destroying everything they built up.
I spoke to one of the guys who catfished me after i pushed for the truth and he explained about wanting to be a white guy hero instead of a short fat black guy who was poor. It was kinda sad because I'm one of those people who accepts anyone.
If you want FB search him using his email that he used most. That might give you some sort of lead.
