I researched the second number and realized it was just connected to another instant messaging app called TextMe. Unlike the other apps, Hinge limits the amount of profiles you can view a day in hopes that you will be more thoughtful when you review your profiles for the day. Thirty-four states have cyberbullying laws that could be used to prosecute catfishers if intention to cause emotional distress can be proven. In California, there is an online impersonation law that protects people whose photos were used without their permission. When a man communicates first after matching on a dating app, I always respond. Because if you are on these apps you know there is some weird energy around who communicates first and in many cases after matching, no one initiates communication. I made contact with the "real" person and based on his response and lack of action, I believe the "real" person is behind the "fake" profile. He used his "childhood" traumas as an excuse not to meet and stated he was back in Canada at his "family's summer home" and would not be back in my local area until late August. I am pledging to use texting and instant messaging in a way that supports my pursuit of meaningful connections with other people.
