This year has been hard on all of us and we've done whatever we can to cope with it. Some of us spent the whole year alone while some others have found the love of their life. The internet was a lifesaver in several aspects, but not for one businesswoman. 23-year-old Jasmine Triggs flew over 1,500 miles to meet the love of her life, but she was stood up at the airport. It isn't like the relationship lasted for years together. In fact, she'd met him online and never saw him in real life. She was excited to meet him, and so she flew from Fort Wayne, Indiana, to Houston, Texas, last week to meet this mystery man that she had been interacting with online, Daily Mail reported.



 

Much to her dismay, when she landed at the airport all excited, she was shocked to realize that she'd been dumped. The man, only known as Jamal, had reportedly blocked her number and left her stranded. Jasmine is the owner of a baking company and she went on to tell the outlet: "I was talking to this guy for about a week and he asked me to come out to Texas. We were talking to the morning I was due to go." We were talking and talking and talking every day, about where he went to school, how he'd been a cheerleader, and had a robotics company. I liked him."



 

"We'd been getting to know each other but it was sexual as well. He was asking me sexual stuff and he was saying he couldn't wait to see me and that he'd cleaned his living room for me." Jamal and Jasmine got to know each other first through an iMessage group chat where they were introduced by a mutual friend. Apparently, the friend who set them up hadn't met this guy, and couldn't vouch for him, either. Jasmine, smitten by Jamal, had spent around $400 for the five-hour round trip. It was no wonder that she was shocked when the man had blocked her number as she landed at the airport. "When I was on the plane, all my messages were sent to everyone apart from him so he'd obviously blocked me."



 

"I didn't hear from him all morning and once I landed, I called him, but I realized he'd blocked my number and I was panicking." People from the group chat were calling him and he blocked them as well," she said. She finally decided to call her friend who lived nearby and went to stay with her for a few days. Later, she shared the story on Twitter to warn other people about the dangers of meeting up with people they've never met before. Her post has gotten over 70,000 likes and some people were so sympathetic that they even offered to pay for Jasmine's plane ticket. "A lot of people have been super kind but I've had the occasional troll."



 

"Guys have been hitting on me, people have been supportive and offering to pay for my ticket but people have been saying that I'm super dumb. some of y’all so weird not once did i ask for sympathy I simply told a life event stop being so negative. y’all act like I set up a GoFundMe," she added. "If you're going to meet up with someone, make sure you FaceTime them first and make them buy the ticket. I don't believe in someone paying for everything which is why I bought my own ticket but if you're going to see them, make sure they buy it because I'm $380 out of pocket and he's said he was going to pay for everything when I got there. Make sure they aren't going to leave you there because if it wasn't for my friend, I don't know what I would have done," she wrote.
