I’ve been chatting with a man for a week now,who I met on Face book.He lives in Qubec and I live in Ottawa.HE speaks broken english from what I’ve gathered through conversing through text messaging.I am not Canadin so English and Freach isn’t my first language either.Spanish is my first language.I speak enough English to comunicate effectively with others but I don’t understand a word of Freach,which makes me feel like we’re going to have a communication problems.Sometimes I have to guess what he is trying to say due to improper use of words.
I asked him if he has Skype and he said ,No his internet contact is too expensive,he prefers eye to eye contact.Then I suggested we chat on the phone to see how well we communicate.He said sure..our agreed time was 7 pm.We were texing almost untill our upon agreed time so I asked him if he is ready to talk now but he never rsponded untill this morning.He apologized about missing our sceduled time and asked if i’m mad.I feel like is is bs and he is unwiilling to talk on the phone.
Not to menation he wants me to drive to his area instead of coming down here or meet me half way.He says he is not familier with Ottawa.It is a 30 minute drive.We are supposed to meet up tommorrow for cofee.I’m not sure if I should bother?

Nope. NO. Absolutely not.
He won’t Skype, ie show you his actual face. He won’t speak with you on the telephone. He won’t meet you on your own turf. So many red flags.

I agree. No. The whole situation seems off.

Nope. I would not be meeting with him. The fact that he didn’t even bother to reschedule the call is strange. I would need at least that before I would meet him in person. I’d let him know you need some sort of real-time communication before meeting up.

No no no no no. Next he’ll probably tell you “Oh, sorry, I’m running late to the coffee shop, why don’t you just meet me at my apartment instead?” If you aren’t 100% comfortable with meeting him, then I would stay home.

leamelly : Nooo. Skype or no go! Watch a few episodes of Catfish – it’s weird that he can’t Skype with you and that he dodged your over the phone conversation.

Trust your intuition – the Good Lord gave it to us for a reason.

I would say no but based on the fact he is really inconsiderate in not agreeing to meet in your city or halfway at least. No.

leamelly : No – if he won’t show you his face through Skype, and you’re feeling creeped out, absolutely NOT.
There is an amazing person out there for you, who would have no problem Skyping 😉
