Dating mobile number
After I’d get a guy’s phone number, I’d run it through the “reverse lookup” feature and voilà!
“That was easy – you gave me your phone number,” he said nonchalantly as I told him to leave, which (fortunately) he did. More than 15% of all American adults have used a mobile dating app or site, according to a 2016 Pew Research Center study—nearly 40 million people—and one recent study found that at least half of them lie about themselves in their profiles (other research puts that percentage even higher).
He started driving by my new house and taking photos. I didn’t want to be tracked down again, so I got a Google Voice number, which rings on my cell phone.
When I went to the police about filing an order of protection, I learned he’d made threats to others. With the Google Voice app, I can send and receive texts, listen to voicemails, and block numbers.
Or like him on Facebook at facebook.com/stevenpetrow.
No doubt you have already tried online dating and had mixed experiences.
