Not that a woman cant take care of herself but lets face it we are the "weaker sex". Would it make the family feel better about the whole thing if he came there?
She has very good advice. Again coming the background I come from, I would strongly advise for her not to go there. Have the guy come down. If he is serious he will do it. It's a world expectation to have the guy come to see her and not the other way around. I'm surprised she isnt concerned at all to go out of her way and spend so much money to see someone she has never met in real life.

I would love to meet her and explain to her in detail what this type of "deal" can lead to.
The reason he wont come and meet her, is that he claims to have no money. Well little amount. She has always wanted to travel... so I think she is seeing this as a perfect opportunity. I just wish she will snap out of it.

Updated news!!
She emailed me a mag with all these rings in there. He wants to buy her a ring, to show how serious he is. Looks look my 4h convo on the phone to her, finally convinced her to ask him a few questions.... what I dont understand, is that he is willing to pay 5k on a ring, rather then buy a ticket to Australia...

I hate to say this, but she is a easy target (since her husband died). She is that desperate to be loved again... she is going to end up hurt.... :roll:
Has no money?! Thats a bunch of BULL if I ever heard of any. If he doesnt have money to come down and see her, where is he finding the money to get her a ring?

I really feel sorry for her. A guy who acts like that (like a child) and isnt honest and lies to her about "no money" should just be locked up. He's just playing games with her.
Uhh tell me about it.
The poor woman met the ideal man of her life, but he got diagnosed with cancer and passed away 1 year after. Now she is left grieving for her loss, and so desperate to be loved again... she said to me the other night..

"Del, im so afraid im going to die alone.. i keep on thinking this is my last chance... what if it is.."?

Vida- Yes she did receive a fairly large payout after her husbands death.

Del - I'm so sorry for her loss... but you have to reassure her that it's not over.. she won't die alone, and Mr Right will come along - maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but eventually she will find the man that she's been waiting for - and it will be SO worth it.

Theres no such thing as a "last chance for love". If shes open to it, and she puts herself out there it will come. I think she is getting a little desperate with the man she has chosen. I just hope she doesn't become a target for a con man, which is what this guy sounds like. She's going to do what she wants to do. I wish there was some magic words you could say to her to stop her from continueing with this man. My heart goes out to her. She sounds like my mom. She met a man via a travel companions company and they have been married 6 years. At least she knew he had enough money to travel freely. Believe me, we had major concerns about it.

LOL @ last chance!!!! No such thing. My Grandpa was married for over 50 years and now he's got 2 hotties on the line and he is 90!!!!!!!!!! OK... so maybe they are not hotties but he still goes out with these 2 ladies and they always have a great time!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

True, I gotta agree with that!
That is a bit desperate what she's doing, but I think she might be only doing this from desperation, or for a 'last chance' at love. & maybe just trying to get anything that comes along?

There are millions of people on this planet. There is a person for everyone. The timing just to be right and I find it hard to believe that going online would the place you find someone.

I have heard it happen, I just find the risks involve do not match the possible positive outcomes.

She really should just wait, & not pick the first person that comes along.

I know she wont die alone, she has a supporting family that have supported her in the past. She is my younger sister, 42 to be exact, and she thinks she is old and that she cant love again. I mean im 45 (since last Saturday (26th April) yay ) and im not worried about falling in love again, i have my two daughters, and my three excellent horses...what else could you want?? But thats just me. In my life, men havnt been anymore then a pain in the bum.

Oh I totally agree with you my2geldings!
As they say... love can be dangerous... esp in the wrong hands.
