in response to reader comment: Linda: 61 year old woman and 34 year old man

Even though I personally am not, and have not gone through this I cannot help but fear for my friend. I know that her fairy tale is NOT what she is hoping for. I don't know why she has latched onto this man because she is lovely, intelligent (??), and not some poor thing desperately seeking love........but then again maybe she is just that? As she is so closed mouthed about all this, I can only go by my own gut feeling about this and it's not good. Oh well, I will take her to the airport, wish her bon voyage, and pray like hell that all is well. She has never traveled outside our state I don't think, so this is huge for her and as you say, a big fantasy trip. I've thought of IM'ing Zachariae Jaddal (keep posting his name in case anyone ever heard of him) and telling him that I am watching and she is to check in with me twice a week...will be interesting to see if he is in any pics, or in back of her when facetiming with me. Don't know if this is good idea or not, but it makes me feel better to have thought of it. He knows nothing of any of her friends, nor do any of them except me know anything about him, other than he's just a "FB" friend.

I am sorry that I get so wordy, but I have no one I can talk to about this and I don't dare tell her I've been asking for information here and researching. I told her if she gets in any kind of real trouble I will move heaven and earth to either get her out or get to her to get her out.
