There’s always going to be people that use the internet to cyber bully others and bully them. There’s always going to be gangs that use the internet to peddle their wares is always going to be fraudsters out there. to defraud people. That’s always going to happen.

21 years ago, I met a lady on the internet. And her name was Joe.

Unknown Speaker 3:40
And we dated for off and on for some period of time. And at the time, she had two young girls, and I had a young boy, both from previous relationships.

Unknown Speaker 3:53
And frankly,

Unknown Speaker 3:55
timing just wasn’t there. life wasn’t there. There was lots going on.

Unknown Speaker 4:00
And we stayed this really good friends. And we’ve got together periodically and talk periodically chatted and emailed.

Unknown Speaker 4:11
And then, three years ago, some magic.

Unknown Speaker 4:16
And Joe and I started seeing each other again.

Unknown Speaker 4:22
