Dear Fonseca

I am writing because I need your help in identifying a potential red flag. I recently went to a business mixer and met what I thought was a great guy. He gave me his phone number. My friend and I were driving the other night when I decided to call him on speakerphone. My friend went nuts because he gave me a Google number. I had never called one before. You have to identify yourself when you call. My friend says this is a huge red flag because cheaters use Google numbers. I had no idea. She says it's usually not their real number, but a secret, second one. It makes it easier for them to screen calls and sometimes won't even ring to their real phone. I never thought about this because I recently got divorced after 18 years of marriage. Things sure have changed. The guy hasn't been acting suspicious and doesn't seem like he's hiding anything. Is a Google number a red flag? Maybe your listeners have stories about Google numbers
