These are the reasons...
First, I am an advocate of the support and defense of Autistics.
Second, Autistics are often the victims of unscrupulous exploitation of scammers of all sorts. Romance scammers are particularly sadistic in draining the emotions and finances of this population, that may not have developed the social skills necessary to identify and deflect endangering scams.
Third, yes, I have been burned in the past, both by a manipulative ex-spouse (and her family), and a grifting opportunist resulting in the loss of hundreds of dollars from me, as well as devestating my faith in humanity. I decided to use my hard-learned lessons to educate others on the dangers of being too trusting to a pretty face and a soothsaying voice.
Does this mean I am biased? Of course. Am I bitter? I was at first, but I realized that it was my fault for being vulnerable to deceitful behaviors. Never again!
I think I have sufficiently made my point through my previous posts. I hope people will have gained insight on the perils of being too trusting. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to post your experiences below, and if you are curious of my sojourns, well, ask me anything!
Thank you all for your time and energy.
