The secret diary of a single parent bloke
I think it’s fair to say that my recent date with Helen didn’t go well, and apart from a polite “nice to meet you” text, I’d not tried to contact her. Unfortunately, the same isn’t true the other way!
A few days after the date, I started to get emails from her. They started off asking for advice about problems with her estranged husband. I really didn’t want to get involved, but tried to be helpful (and non-committal) and replied. They became more and more frequent, then I got a message saying that she’d been to see a clairvoyant who had told her that she had a future with somebody with my initials and a connection to Wales (which I’d previously told her is where my dad lived). Oh dear.
The emails steadily increased, and she began copying me in on emails between her and her husband, which were becoming increasingly angry (I didn’t reply to these). I also started to get texts from her- really bizarre ones which made no sense! Over the last week, the amount of emails and texts have risen dramatically, and become even more odd. She seems to be copying me in on replies to conversations with everybody, but some are just gibberish!
Between Friday night and Saturday night, I had around 50 texts from her, but none on Sunday! This is really odd, and I feel very uncomfortable. I’ve not replied to any messages for a while, and I’m just going to have to continue to ignore them and hope that she stops. I’m so glad that she lives 35 miles away, doesn’t know my address, and can’t drive!
Update: After the weekend, I haven’t heard from her at all. I’m really confused.
Update 2: In 2008, over two years after our date, she wanted to add me as a Facebook friend! She’s now living about 200 miles away, and I feel a bit safer!
