I’m sure, “Catfish” may be the word of a single day these days, but In my opinion that just happened certainly to me lately. Yeah, he! The only real problem in this particular situation would be that it is some cool looking guy who has just a bit of a crush on me (much more about that later). But to know about whom I was “Cat fished” you sorta must know the way it-all got begun. *Insert wavy display screen and magical harp music, at the urging of my personal character hands.*

It absolutely was a typical evening, like many other individuals. Porn, recreations, supper and coding (in that order correctly). We hear the tell-tale blip indicating that my personal open Facebook loss provides a notification, a message. We head over and that I seem. Its a note… A long drilling information. We see clearly. I do believe to myself personally “the hell???” I do not even know who this character is actually!! Next another information arrives. I Really Don’t reply to either of these… Crazy. The gist with the emails was which he understood exactly who I became; which he knew, approximately the guy thought, something was actually happening between myself personally and a common buddy of ours and that I needed is up front about particular matchmaking conditions I have in place; oh and he happens to be reading my personal stuff-over on my web log, which prompted their information originally. Noice! Well, whenever a note consists of “I am not attempting to be intimidating, but…” you’re sorta being really threatening. Any. Oh while the soon after time I receive two a lot more communications using this clown in which he will get right down to business. The guy wishes me to assist him “work with this idea for a website We have…”  Oh, however he asks us to be adult rather than say everything about it to our mutual friend as a favor to him… actually? Eff. Me Personally.

Just performs this man appear on FB to slide me personally away, but the guy additionally begins to appear on my ‘visitors’ record on OkCupid… I mean, I am not difficult to get on the net, however it does require some work to get me personally on OkCupid… Sigh. Females… At long last get “it.” I get many crap you need to endure from creepers on the internet. Provided this is an extremely little sampling, but i actually do kinda get it today.

But, Alex, that’s not “Cat Fishing.” Indeed, yes, I’m conscious. I am obtaining there; I’ll secure the airplane in because of time, children.

Therefore I don’t notice a peep out of this man in over per week and I cannot discuss this encounter to your mutual pal, when I really don’t would you like to muck something up. I get a comment regarding the Urban Dater, on one associated with articles. Seems legitimate, I answer. Nothing funny. This same person follows me personally on Twitter. Starts making laughs with me and what maybe not. Which is all well and great. No problem here. But while you all effortlessly (and extremely quickly) guessed it had been psycho guy from FB. The thing is that, these reviews and that Twitter profile he was contacting me from was fake. Photo and all of! I experiencedn’t put two and two collectively as of this time and that I’m shitty at mathematics. Just what! Its only by pure opportunity that i consequently found out it had been him. We visited accept a vintage discuss a post that my brand new stalker had mentioned on aswell. It absolutely was next that We saw the gravatar on their opinion matched their FB profile image. That was the only real review of his like that…


I will remember that inside the week that implemented, this very persistent man has-been trying to meet up with me to get running, or even to grab a bite to eat. At this point, i understand what’s up, but I don’t try to let on regarding it. Why? Because I would like to figure out what i will carry out right here. I’d mentioned previously this to my friend as to what was going on. Evidently he’s not a first and initial time offender. He’s creeped on various other dudes, also. Used to do even more inquiring around to discover the truth who else understands the guy. Turns out an effective pal of mine games with him and allows thereon he’s in addition bi-sexual/bi-curious. interesting. The story could thicken…

We duck his attempts at fulfilling upwards within urging of personal buddies, however the man’s a bit of a doppleganger from Igor looking mofo from 300. What’s the worst that could take place?

That brings us to this blog post. When I write this, I had gotten a “conference phone call” on a Sunday with this particular turd and one of their “associates” the guy however thinks I’m not sure whom he is.

@alexjvasquez cool kidney beans on the pressgram. So how exactly does 9-10am discussion phone call audio? Ill call the digidesign number. Im an earlier individual =p

The reason why make use of this person? The reason why encourage the conduct? We dunno. This indicates if you ask me that the monkey must be informed two things on how to never be a creeper and all of around oddball about crap such as this. Possibly someone should make sure he understands to mind his personal company to get a life.

Some one should inform “Joseph” that 9 to 10am isn’t really very early. But whatever, now I’m simply becoming a nit picky jerk. In any event, just what will I tell this putz? How much time will I permit him carry this on? Will the guy expose his correct identification at once? Will the guy nevertheless ask us to re-build his shitty site? You guys will see on when I’ll certainly upload about what occurs, supplied he hasn’t used up my apartment down…

Stay tuned in.
