I had my first stalker today.
I got a request to add a friend from this cheeky young bloke from the UK who I do not know and does not know me and we share no mutual friends that would have pointed him in my direction. Thinking I'd try anything once,well at least when it comes to this:), I sent him a message.
When you do so in these circumstances Facebook warns you that you are giving a 30 days all access pass to your profile to the other person. Whatever, my personal information is personal and not on my profile for good reason. Unless he is CIA he's not coming to find me.
At first glance I thought he might be a 'collector', as he has 459+ friends and growing. But these are mostly all local people, plus he look like a young party boy. Safe enough it seems. So I send a reply:
I don't think I know you, would you like to stalk me?
How did you stumble upon me?
"dont no love proberbly through some1 we both no"
We have no mutual friends - DO TELL
"were u from"
Well , as adorable as it is that he even texts in his Brit accent (and who doesn't love an accent?) something is up with Mr. Norton...I was hoping he would tell how he came across my profile with some sincerity. But since not, I have checked the IGNORE box on his Add a Friend request. That has not deterred him from sending another. So dear readers, I will take a poll and receive your comments on the topic; to be stalked or* not to be stalked?
Facebook gives the option of BLOCKING him, or if I continue to IGNORE him, in 30 days he will be left with only a thumbnail and my pinging blog feeds if he follows them. Now my feed tells me there are many visitors stopping in, but only a couple who dare to comment - perhaps you will all want to have some input here...
