There are some of us who have been at this website for a while now. You have to understand the history here. We have had a few people appear here over the years, posing as clusterheads (why anyone would WISH to have cluster headaches, I'll never know) yet really only being here because they are lonely, I guess. There have been folks here using this website as a lonelyhearts club, sewing circle - whatever you want to call it.
Sometimes, flags go up for us oldtimers and sometimes we are suspicious. Sometimes, maybe too suspicious, I guess - but once burned, twice shy as the old saying goes.
So, don't jump on Charlie for being cautious. He's not the only one who has seen folks come and go from this website that are only here to find something we can't offer. He's a pretty cool guy, actually.
I'm sorry for your pain. I hope you can see our perspective here. Please know that this website IS one of the best places a clusterhead can land and the true cluster support and friendship is amazing.
