Meeting a potential lifelong partner over the internet isn’t uncommon these days. It happens every single day in all corners of the world!
Whilst there’s no denying that there’s an upside to online dating, we all know that it’s got a dark side. However, if you thought the shortcomings and potential dangers of online dating were confined to being catfished or meeting bloodthirsty murderers, boy, were you wrong.
In fact, an aging British man by the name of Glyn Thomas Bailey unintentionally became a star in the Dominican Republic after flying 4,000 miles in order to meet a woman he’d fallen for online.
He really believed that he could start a new relationship with this woman and become a father figure to her four children as soon as he landed in the Caribbean country. However, he soon discovered how wrong he was.
Now, he is stranded in the country after being rejected by the woman he had been talking to on the internet for six months.
However, the woman, whose name is Wilfa Soto Peguero didn’t reject him for the reasons you might think. It wasn’t a lack of physical attraction or chemistry that spurred her decision to dump her British beau.
Peguero has confessed to rejecting Bailey because he didn’t have any money, much to her dismay.
“I asked him to send me money so I could go and fetch him from the airport and he never sent me anything,” Peguero explained.
Peguero has even claimed that despite not being well off herself, borrowed $320 to pick him up from Punta Cana International Airport.
“But as he was coming to meet me I couldn’t just abandon him like he was a nobody so I decided to borrow money to go to the airport,” she explained.
For the entirety of their six-month online affair, Bailey who is from Rhymney in South-east Wales used Google Translate to communicate.
Although Bailey told Peguero from the beginning that he was by no means wealthy, he assured her that he would be able to help raise her children which included her two young daughters who still live with her.
