Speaking of love obsession

I met a guy online as a teen when I was in a relationship. To me he and me were friends and that's what I told him and that's also why we never met irl. So we had contact a few weeks but it stopped once I noticed he was feeling more than friends. We didn't talk again.

10 years later I'm in a car as I get a call from a number I don't recognise. I answer. And hear:

"Hi. It's me."

Me: Who are you?

Him: It's Marcus.

I go through my mental library of names and people. I find the file Marcus with the coca cola bed covers.

Me: Oh. Hello. Why are you calling me, hasn't it been what, 10 years?

Him: Yes that's why I'm calling. To congratulate us.

Me: Congratulate?

Him: Yes. If you hadn't stopped talking to me, and not stayed with your boyfriend, this would be out tenth year anniversary.

Me: ....
I dated a guy for about a year. He went off his meds and I bailed out. Now he texts a proposal about twice a year.

Don't ask me.
@DrWatson Too true. On the other hand, you don't have to throw him out.

@Mamapolo2016 You should say yes then next day go "Kidding"
@Queendragonfly I prefer as little entanglement as possible. Besides, he's living with his ex-wife back East. Apparently she won't marry him either.

I dated a woman for a few months in 1976.

She broke up with me.

I took it pretty badly.

We have had no contact at all since then.

So, there is [i]some[/i] date this spring (I really have no idea what it is) that would be our 47th anniversary!

I should track her down and phone her, so we can celebrate 47 beautiful years -- four months of which we spent together!

@Queendragonfly Perfect! If I am going to be creepy, I might as well be as creepy as possible!
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@DrWatson Yes, gotta go all the way!
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@Queendragonfly Yeah. After 47 years, I suppose I should ask her for nudes as well.

That would make it a perfect reunion!

@Queendragonfly ya and not in a fun way! 😨
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@Jeephikelove Exactly. Maybe I would be locked up in a basement who knows 👀
Jeephikelove · 46-50, F
@Queendragonfly that is very plausible.
Think he'll call every 10 years to wish you a happy not anniversary? 😯
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@BrewCityArtist Maybe, unless he finds someone else to obsess about 😂
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@Vivaci I've met the strangest of the strangest people 😂

Seems like a weirdo if that is what he has done. Why else would someone make contact after a decade. Do not talk to him.
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@PoetryNEmotion He's a big romantic guy.
PoetryNEmotion · 61-69, F
@Queendragonfly A big, romantic stalker...
DrWatson · 70-79, M
There [i]has[/i] to be a good comeback line for this....🤔 😄
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@DrWatson I think I said something like "But I was never dating you?" 😂
DrWatson · 70-79, M
@Queendragonfly A minor detail, I'm sure! 😄
Queendragonfly · 31-35, F
@DrWatson Yeah what does it matter, if we are destined to be together. 🤣
