    She met him online.

    He had one picture posted of himself that she said didn't even look that much like him. He told her he cannot take more pictures because it is against his beliefs "as a Rastafarian."

    He told her he is studying to be an attorney. He did not register this semester because he had to go home for a few weeks to his homeland of Jamaica. He has to keep going back and forth for weeks at a time, he told her, because of "family situations and citizenship issues" that she just "wouldn't understand."

    He did not ask her for money, although he seems to always be broke. I asked her how she knew that he really was out of the country and not just avoiding her and she said because she had to mail him a sweatshirt he left in her car (!)

    Even if he is there, I suspect he has another life/family going on. Not much of this really adds up.

    :jj: I was talking to my mom and ex-sister-in-law about this type of dude yesterday because my female friends always bring them around.

    1. Out on disability = no job.
    2. Sold their house to take care of their mother = no house/apartment
    3. Got screwed by wife in a divorce so they're tight with their money = broke motherfucker.
    4. Got rid of their car for environmental reasons = bad credit and/or multiple DUIs

    That was pretty much my reaction as well. I tried gently talking to her but I'm pretty sure all she heard was Charlie Brown's teacher saying "Womp Womp wa"

    He has some half ass job (because he is allegedly in school). He lives with his aunt, and he does not have a car.
