Guys have tales to tell too of course.
A male friend told of a mate’s first attempts of dating on eHarmony. He met up with a girl, and after two nice but nondescript dates, decided he could live without seeing her again. As you do. Unfortunately, he failed to communicate that to her.
The next night, Unlucky Bastard had a bunch of mates over to his place for drinks. Around midnight, as he was seeing his mates out the door, he noticed his date’s car outside. There were two problems with this. Problem no 1 – he had not invited her to his house. Problem no 2 – he had never given her his address. In the tradition of true Aussie mateship, the boys sensed trouble and fled, leaving their buddy alone to deal with his psycho stalker date.
For the next three hours, Psycho Date rang his doorbell in ten minute intervals, retreating to her car in between rings, while Unlucky Bastard pretended he wasn’t home. Finally, at 3am, Unlucky Bastard called the police. Psycho Date’s blood alcohol levels were off the charts, she was charged for drink driving, taken away, and spent the rest of the night in lockup. The next day Unlucky Bastard received a number of “You f*cker! How could you call the police!” text rants before life settled back to “normal”. Despite the events of the weekend, and zero replies from Unlucky Bastard, Psycho Date sent multiple chatty texts per day about what was going on, acting as if they were somehow in a relationship.
Too polite (or nervous) to end it, the protocol of zero communication from Unlucky Bastard continued for at least a week, as did the texts. As far as I know, she’s still texting him.
