Two journals in one day, i know, but I couldn't help but post this because I don't know whether I want to laugh or cry about my problems.
So evidently I'm the type of person that attracts creepy/psycho people. I don't know why, but I do. Now, my love life is basically nonexistent (but we don't need to talk about that right now, haha). Anyway, I was just calmly going about my business on Facebook and I receive a message from some guy who graduated a year or two before me in high school. It was a harmless 'hi' and I really didn't want to be that girl, but I ignored him. Mainly because I was doing dishes...
...And sorry, random stall out but I think there is some sort of man hunt going on around my area. I can hear sirens and there is a helicopter flying around and it's been flying around for the last half hour. Back to my point...
...but I asked my friend if she remembered who she was and she was like, "seriously, don't talk to him, i'm not kidding. He's listed as some sort of sex offender" and then I was like, well shit, I'll unfriend the creep. It's not the first time he's tried talking to me.
And then there is the guy that I went on my first 'date' with. He was a nutter and I didn't know that until I was in his house. He seemed like a normal guy and I was like, maybe it'll help get me out of my shell. The first half of the date was just boring as hell and then he took me to his house and then showed me his extensive knife collection and started lighting shit on fire. He was just out there...and so wasn't his family. His sister gave me a stare that basically said 'You're one of us now.' It was just overall awful. It has severely affected my outlook on dating in general.
There are also a couple of other guys that have tried to talk to me in the past, but they were just shady. I'm generally quiet and shy towards new people, so I don't know whether they thought that I'd take them because I was quiet or that my shy nature made me seem naive and that they could get me to do what they wanted.
First thing is first, I am not a small woman. I am 6 feet tall and 150 something pounds. I am not getting shoved into a van or being carried away very easily. that's all I'm saying. And I do know how to defend myself. I'm just hoping I don't attract a creep that actually hurts me.
Anybody else have this problem?
