Things like this happen everyday, people mask their sex and age to avoid or attract attention on the Internet. This is only one of the reasons why the government wants to censor the Internet.

It is frequently far better to apply for one of the non-immigrant visas and then apply for an adjustment of status to lawful permanent residence. I do not propose to cover every con
