Ask The Eye Double Order Of Catfish Please

August 24, 2014

Dear Eye View

For the past few months, my mom has been catfishing a guy online and I don’t know what to do. Earlier this year, I decided to give online dating a try and signed up for a free online dating site. My mom was very supportive and interested in me finding someone, and, unbeknownst to me, created a fake profile to scope out the site. I was perturbed when I found out, but I went along with it under the condition that she didn’t message anyone. She broke her promise and created an elaborate profile that mimicked my life (without using my name) and began talking to a few people. She ended up forming a friendship with one guy who was getting divorced who she felt sounded depressed. While pretending to be a 28-year-old woman, she offered him suggestions on how to fix his profile. I begged her to cut it off with him, but she hasn’t. In fact, she created several new profiles and pretended to be interested in him to help build his confidence. What really scares me is that he left a gift certificate for her to pick up at a local store, which I persuaded her not to use. I know this guy owns guns and I’m scared for her if he ever finds out she’s not who she’s pretending to be. She’s already seeing a psychiatrist for anxiety, so I don’t know what else I can do. My dad is aware of what she’s doing but he just brushes it off. Am I the crazy one for thinking this is a serious problem? My mom needs a new hobby, but she’s full of excuses for why she can’t work or volunteer somewhere because of her health.

Dear Double D
I understand your concern. You have warned your mother about the dangers of what she’s getting herself into, and presumably you’ve suggested she discuss her activities with her psychiatrist. But if she won’t there’s nothing you can do. I can understand your father’s stance. Likely he’s glad she’s occupying herself and is probably not highly concerned she’s going to find someone to replace him. Or on the other hand maybe your dad is more involved than you think. Hope this helps.

Grandma Gets Bitten In Freak Otter Attack

August 6, 2014

Wildlife officials are trying to trap an otter today that they believe mauled an 8-year-old boy and his grandmother who came to his rescue. Officials believe Bryce Moser inadvertently got too close to the otter  when he was swimming Thursday morning in the Pilchuck River, a swimming hole his family has been using for years. The boy’s grandmother, Lelani Grove, said she heard the screams of her grandson and then saw the horrible sight of an otter viciously attacking him. “I could see that it was biting into his head and it had its claws around him,” Grove told ABC News affiliate KOMO News. She jumped into action.“It just started biting on me and biting on me and it felt like little knives just going in,” Grove told the station. Grove added the otter was cute but a little freaky.
