He started by telling me he couldn't meet me because his mom was in the hospital in Turkey. Him and his 3 year old daughter were there to take care of her. Says he is an only son, never been married, engaged once, but she died two years ago from lung cancer "cos she smoked alot." Has had one girlfriend since then but broke it off with her because "he caught her creeping around with best friend." He will profess to love you within the first week. [continued below]....
..... Tell you he has been looking for the love of his life and he found her with you. Sweet talk you by calling you babe, sweetie etc. Will not want you to call him for unknown reason, just text or yahoo instant message.
