This sounds exactly like a post on here from a few months ago...

Either way, you need to stop talking to this loser and get a grip on yourself. Feeling sorry for a creep isn't good for you, nor is allowing him to control or manipulate you. Call the cops and report him, they can trace his internet and IP address and talk to him.

You should also delete all of your accounts and make new ones and NEVER give out your password to anyone. Make them really hard to hack- with numbers and letters in them and make them all different.

Next, ONLY give out your new email address to people you KNOW in REAL LIFE. If you haven't met them in person, you don't give them your info.

Set up a fake email for msn or emailing online dating people- something that keeps you completely anonymous, like Thisgirl@hotmail.com.

Something about this overly long story just doesn’t add up. It makes no sense to give anyone else your username and passwords, regardless of whether you thought he was a nice guy or not.

I know he is creepy, I lost all trust in him when I found out he hacked my password like one year ago in order to see

Even if he was a "nice guy," there is no reason at all for him to have your account passwords. Like the other poster said, definitely change them right away!!! Change them, and block him! He sounds very creepy and disturbed. You don't owe him ANYTHING.

I had a boyfriend break up with me because this woman he'd been talking to from online, who he'd never met in person and stopped talking to when he met me (we met IRL, not online), got back in touch with him and said she was dying. (She had previously told him she had cancer...and he used to tell people she was his "girlfriend", even though they lived in different parts of the country, and had never met in person). Anyway, she told him she was dying and that she just HAD to meet him before she died...so he got all freaked out and broke up with me; said he needed to go be with her.

Now, I'm not saying I don't believe that somewhere there could have been a lonely, naive woman who met a guy she really liked online and thought there was something there without having ever met in person who was legitimately that ill. But, the whole thing sounded suspicious to me. And I couldn't believe he just fell for it like that. Truth is, there are a LOT of wackos out there who will make things like that up to get sympathy and attention.

I did hear through the grapevine that the woman did supposedly die...but I still think the whole situation was a bit odd. Oh well. Water under the bridge now. I'm just saying, this guy COULD be just trying to guilt you into staying in contact with him by telling you of his cancer scare.

And his saying that if you cut contact with him, you will lose "the only good friend you have"? I highly doubt he's the one and only "good friend you have." That's a guilt/manipulation tactic.

I hope that you find some way to change your passwords on all your accts. ASAP-=you don't know what kind of info he has on you, maybe next he could be hacking into your bank acct. & taking your money, or maybe he could find out where you live and stalk you since you don't really know what he looks like, but he knows what you look like. I'm no computer expert so I don't know how to advise you on what to do, but it sounds like it's better if you have no contact w/ him.
