So it all started when I replied to a Facebook message from a stranger… I usually don’t even reply to Facebook messages from randoms, but I thought maybe I knew him or met him through a mutual friend so that he wasn’t totally random.
So I replied with a simple hey…. Assuming he would fill in the blanks on how he knows me. However, that didn’t happen; instead, he immediately starting asking how I had been doing as if we were long-time pals catching up. Since he wasn’t going to cut to the chase, I simply asked him how did we know each other, and I apologized for not remembering.
He then told me that I was correct and we didn’t know each other, but he had seen me around campus a few times in passing, and he would like to get to know me. I was a bit creeped out, but at the same time, I thought, well, at least, he was honest, and he wasn’t a grenade (bad looking guy), so why not just continue the conversation. It turned out that he actually had a really good convo, and he made me laugh!
The Facebook messaging eventually turned into texting by the end of the night, and I actually felt good about the possibility of getting to know a new guy. The next morning when I woke up, I had a 2 paragraph text message from him stating how glad he was that we met, and how beautiful I was, and he couldn’t wait to continue to get to know me.
Even though this made me feel a bit uncomfortable, I thought, maybe that’s how a guy should be behaving. I mean, I was so used to clowns, maybe this was how a guy was supposed to treat me.
So I simply replied with a smiley face emoji, and a good morning. However, later that day he called me and to my surprise, said that he had bought 2 front row tickets to Beyonce’s Formation concert, and would love if I would be his date.
I couldn’t believe it! But I didn’t totally feel comfortable so I told him I would let him know. I texted my best friend and she immediately told me that it was a bit strange, and I should watch out. But how could you turn down front row Beyonce seats?
I have to admit, I too thought it was strange, so I ended up telling him that I couldn’t accept the tickets. Then the next day I woke up to another very long sappy good morning text, and he ended it with “I love you.”
At that point it was clear that he definitely fell in love with me, and the feelings just weren’t mutual. I mean, he was a nice guy, but the fact that he was so infatuated with me so quickly was a red flag. I didn’t reply to his message until later that afternoon when I texted him that I don’t think it’s best if we continue to communicate, and gave him some excuse about being swamped with school and work.
He immediately called me, but I hit ignore. He then called 3 more times. I then blocked his number and blocked him from Facebook too.
Maybe I’m childish, but I just wanted to cut all ties, I mean it had only been 2 days so there was really no love lost for me.
