Ann Gray, 29, says she went on three dates with a man she met through an online dating site. After their third date, she decided she didn’t want to see him anymore, so she told him it “wasn’t working for her.”
That didn’t work, and things started to get creepy. According to Ann, “He continued to message me and the day came when he sent me one stating ‘I think we need to have a date tonight! I will be around your house in 30 minutes.'”
So she resorted to exceedingly desperate measures to deflect the clinger. According to The Mirror, which is running a series on “bad date stories,” Ann tried to end things with the following duplicitous text message:
Obviously that did not work. So she added another layer to her deceit:
Wow. If this story wasn’t creepy before, it is now. And while it may seem like Ann painted herself into a corner, she still had one card left to play…
According to Ann, she never received a response to that final text, but the story doesn’t end there: her former date caught her on the same dating website again a couple months later.
