Reminds me one a situation i had a few years ago. I was browsing the nets when i stumbled upon a girl who was desperately looking for a boyfriend, online. I saw the comments other people were giving her, and i was seriously creeped out, not because of the messages themselves, but the fact that she was willing to carry out everything they told her so they would be her boyfriend.
I offered myself as a boyfriend and talked to her, trying to steer her away from dependency, so she could be herself and don't feel alone, at least be her friend.
It didnt end well.
