I'm not sure. I'm definitely way more wary now I'm a mother. I think I would ask a lot of questions under the guise of 'getting to know you', and if anything didn't add up I like to think I'd say so, and walk away. But people get conned all the time. And I don't think it's because some people are stupid, like some have implied here. It's because con artists and shonky people and sociopaths are very, very good at it. So, on that, I wouldn't judge others for doing it, I just don't think it's necessarily the best foundation for a relationship. I can see how it would be a risk that people are willing to take though.
