I work in retail, go to a local health club, and until my vehicle broke down, I was fairly active on the local karaoke circuit. If anyone who's browsing at online dating profiles lives in the same area as me, there's a good chance they'll recognize me from one of those places. It's not THAT scary if they merely strike up a conversation if they run into me by accident IRL, wondering if I was still looking, etc. It does kind of get pretty close to stalkerish though when some guy who replied to my profile and didn't get a reply back actually goes to the trouble of tracking me down and showing up at one of those places (usually my workplace, where I obviously can't easily get away from him) and asking why I didn't write him back. Especially when the guy lived over 30 miles away from me and had to have made a special trip just to do that. What kind of answer do these men actually think they're going to get when they do something that creepy? Has anybody else in here had something similar happen?

Michael, I didn't report it, because my workplace is pretty much open to the public, and I wouldn't have been able to prove that he WASN'T "just in the area." What's weird was that it was over five years ago when he did that, and I didn't have a profile on the site where he saw me on for at least four years. I put a new one there back in January, and the same guy replied to me again, and even identified himself as the one who showed up where I worked! He didn't even apologize for what he'd done before. He just said something like, "You didn't look like you were interested in me at the time. So are you ready for me now?" I finally blocked the creep so that even if he sent any follow up messages, I wouldn't get them, unless he did so from a different account. Speaking of guys who can't take a hint, I told a story of yet a different one towards the end of the "Why Do Women Need 'Not Interested?'" blog. It's probably a tossup between this guy and THAT one as far as which was worse.
