I have been dating a guy from Accra Ghana he is 30 yrs old and I am 45 yrs old. I have encountered some feelings for him and I would like to visit him, but I wanted to be sure that it would be ok or something to be cautious of.
I would advise being cautious about this kind of thing. A common type of scam around the world is for people to instigate long-distance relationships in order to try and get money, information, photos etc. sent to them.
Obviously you need to use your own judgement and experience of the person in question, however I'd avoid sending any money via transfer etc. and be thorough in your research before committing to a trip.
The website below has some information on these types of scams if you'd like to read through and see if there are any red flags. It's from the Australian Government but I'm sure there will be a variety of articles like this out there which you can refer to when making your decision.
