Online dating is nothing short of a minefield. It’s pretty terrifying that you can basically end up sat opposite someone that you don’t know anything about, trapped in any manner of awkward situations. From catfishes to ghosts, to orbiters, looking for love via the internet is certainly not for the faint of heart.

And this story has re-ignited the dangers of dating online after a woman was cruelly dumped 2 weeks before she was set to move across the world to move in with “Mr. Right.” Yikes.

The problem with trying to find love? It’s basically a living nightmare at every turn.

It seems like the universe isn’t willing to put the right person in front of you until you’ve met a lot of the wrong ones first.

Well, first of all, you’ve got to find someone to date. In the past, many couples met in bars, at farmer’s markets, or through friends of friends. But that’s simply not the case anymore.

You’re going to have to endure the endless, disappointing journey through the various dating apps.

Basically, they act as a neverending reminder that people are, generally, trash.

Either people don’t look anything like their pictures, they’re still obsessed with their ex, or they tell you that they like you and then disappear forever into the ether. It’s a jungle out there.

Sometimes, they’re actually pretty scary because you never really know who you’re talking to…

Stephanie Gorton decided she was ready to make the ultimate sacrifice by giving up a stable and ideal life in Australia for a Tinder date in Scotland.

It seems as though his feelings weren’t as strong as hers and he had to call it quits before she crossed oceans to be with him.

She had even shipped some of her belongings to Scotland so they would be there before she arrived.

The pair had dated long distance for a while, with Stephanie even flying out to visit him in different locations as he continued to travel the world.

And Scotland was the chosen destination, with the pair going as far as talking about raising a family in their new home… Yikes.

Because 2 weeks before the big move, he let her know that he didn’t share the same dream anymore.

“In those four weeks, I was always trying to chase him up… I was even contacting his mom,” reported the outlet.

“In hindsight, there were red flags all the way through. It wasn’t like it was the perfect relationship, there were trust issues… but I adored him.”

“I thought it was love, and love ‘wasn’t supposed to be easy but you fight for it’. That was my mentality.”

“Steph it’s just too hard, it shouldn’t be this hard. If it’s hard now, it’s going to be even harder later,” he said. “You’re going to come over and have no friends. You’ll be relying on me and I am not in a good place financially.”

A very likely story…

Obviously, Stephanie had some suspicions, but she looked into it further despite “[her] heart and gut already knew” what the reason was.

So when he wasn’t seeing Stephanie, he was seeing another girl in South America. She also found that he had been lying about other girls that he had been seeing and traveling the world with. Ouch.

Facing her old colleagues again. She went back to ask for her old job and thankfully she got it back but explaining the situation couldn’t have been easy.

advertisement

“The worst part was, tail between my legs, going back to my job, and to all the people who knew that I was supposed to be moving to Scotland in two weeks.”

advertisement

Stephanie ended up starting up her own business where she held workshops and managed to sell it off for a “six-figure sum” and is now earning more than that with her second business.

So who’s the real winner? Secure that bag, Steph!
