I have been emailing a guy
Hi cutie, it's just my two cents, so take it for what it's worth, but if he's using an alias and a pic that doesn't really reveal who he is, then it does sound like he's trying to be sure that nobody he knows in real life could find him on there. That may not mean anything more than that he doesn't want people he knows to know he's looking for love online, or it could be something less benign, like he's married and doesn't want his wife to find him there. In either case, I'd say trust your instincts, and if you think something's fishy, beware.
