He was very sweet and seemed caring as we chatted online.One day I visited him at his parent’s homestead in Mpopoma, Bulawayo. As we talked, one thing led to the other and started kissing.The next thing he was trying to get into my pants and I refused until he pinned me down and tried to rape me. I never talked to him ever since.’ (Dazzy, 17 years old) The material girl ‘I got a message from a girl on Evening Touch. While at Beer Engine, a bar located in the heart of Harare, we had a few drinks (bought her ciders) and she revealed how she was a university student living in the university residents and had overspent all her money and was bankrupt.I had contracted an STI.’ (Peter, 29 years old) The ’22-year-old’ ‘I met a girl who described herself as a 22-year-old woman on her profile on Evening Touch.We agreed to meet in town; I arrived on the date, all excited, but realised that the girl who sat was a 30 year old lady.
