This Catfish Story Has A Twist That's Movie-Worthy.

Every single human has the desire to fall in love. In this day and age, it's not unusual to find the love of your life online. While you want to believe the person that you spend countless hours pouring your heart out to is telling the truth about themselves, too often it ends up being one big lie. This woman became prey to a catfish, but unlike most people this happens to, her story has a twist.

Emma Perrier is a 35-year-old restaurant manager from Richmond, South-West London.

Because of her crazy work hours, it became hard for Emma to meet a man. So she turned to the dating app, Zoosk, to look for romance.

After spending a bit of time searching, Emma met Ronaldo "Ronnie" Scicluna.

Ronnie could be described as the perfect man: tall, dark, and handsome. He was half Italian, exactly the same age as Emma, and was raised in the West Midlands.

It wasn't long before Emma and Ronnie were talking every single day.

Every morning Emma would check her phone to see if Ronnie had messaged her, and he usually did. They spoke about their lives, their hopes, and their dreams. Emma was falling in love with this man.

But every time Emma suggested video chatting, Ronnie would make some excuse as to why he couldn't.

"That's just for teenagers," he would say. So Emma would just have to be content with only speaking on the phone for the time being.

Emma began to get a little antsy, though, and wanted to meet Ronnie in person.

But Ronnie made the excuses that his job had him traveling all over Europe, and when he did have free time, he spent it at his parents' home in Spain. He offered for Emma to join him there, but of course, nothing came out of it. Emma held on to the dream though. After all, they were saying "I love you" to one another.
