Longview Singles Group Protects Against Predators

A Longview man has created an organization to help protect singles looking for partners. Driving through Longview, you might see a curious sign at Spur 63 and Highway 80. It's dedicated to helping singles find partners, called Lonely in Longview.  It's the brainchild of Longview resident, Amos Snow.

"All of them, when they call me up, I hear well I'm really not lonely. I'm not looking for anybody. Same thing I used to say all the time too," Snow says.

The organization helps singles avoid possible predators who could victimize them financially, and Snow has first hand experience.

"My previous relationship involved a woman addicted to meth-amphetamine and was nothing but a financial predator. She wanted me for money, a source for money for drugs and that was it. Every word out of her mouth was I love you Amos, where's the money," Snow says.

 His partner at the time victimized him for over fifty thousand dollars and there are worse cases.

 "The worst story to date. A woman lost 1.3 million dollars. The true sense of betrayal is hard to describe, but if you can spot those people early on, you can save yourself a lot of time, trouble and heartache," says Snow.

With over 200 members now, the singles can scrutinize the backgrounds of other members trying to find the right person.

"I don't want anyone to go through the pain I went through in my last relationship. It was horrendous. If you decide you are looking for someone, here's a guide you might want to use to protect yourself, especially when you get into the older age group. It can be downright terrifying to date," he says.

But the positive message is, the right person is out there. Snow is engaged to a member he met through the group.

"It only took me 47 years to find her so I'm ahead of the curve," Snow says jokingly.

Snow will soon have a web site up and working to allow more people to participate in the group.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
