Met this crazy girl
I have a problem. I met this girl through some friends, she was nice and I
was friendly but I don’t think I gave her any indication that I planned on
wanting more or that anything was going to go further than just a casual
meeting with friends. However, a few days later she friended me on Facebook
and then started posting things to my wall.
I foolishly gave her my business card and she started messaging me and
calling me as well as sending me messages on Facebook and posting to my
wall. She sends me something at least once a day.
If that wasn’t bad enough, she started friending all my friends on Facebook
and has sent some of my female friends rude messages when she thinks they
might be my girlfriend. We haven’t dated. We haven’t done anything at all
except running into each other at casual events.
At first I didn’t realize she was a crazy stalker until one of my female
friends told me she had received a crazy message from this girl.
I have unfriended her and blocked her, I have blocked her from my phone and
told all of my friends to unfriend her as well and told them of this crazy
stalking behavior but we both still live here. What am I going to do short
of leaving? I know she continues to try and friend people I know and I know
that she has told people that we are dating. I keep telling people we are
not but really, her craziness is getting to me!
Ready to leave!
Well, I suppose you could move. But it seems to me you are doing the best
thing to do. Ignore her, make sure the people who know you know what is
going on and eventually she will get bored and find a new target.
Alternatively, point a new target in her way! Perhaps you have some friend
who likes desperate clingy slightly mad women (goodness knows there seems to
be a fair few number of those around who do!) and introduce them! Who knows,
maybe it will work and she will find a new target for her “affections” and
one that might enjoy them more than you.
Best of luck and remember, there are plenty of non-crazy women out there,
you just haven’t met any yet!
Wish I could have a dog
I see the pictures of the dogs needing homes from Care for Dogs in the pages
of this newspaper every issue and I keep wishing I could rescue them all!
Unfortunately I live in town and can’t have a dog where I live.
I am sure I could find a house that would allow a dog and I wouldn’t mind
moving out of the city and listen to frogs instead of sirens but I travel a
fair bit and I am just not sure how long I will be here. It seems unfair to
me to take a dog and then struggle to find a home for it in a year or two
when and if I need to leave.
Emma, do you have any suggestions for me?
Lonely without a dog
You could volunteer with Care for Dogs, I am sure they wouldn’t say no to
someone who wants to come and visit the dogs and play with them and bathe
them or help take care of them when they are being treated. This would give
you as much dog exposure as you could need.
Or, if you are serious about moving, talk to them about fostering a dog or
two. This would give you a dog in your home but one that will be rehomed,
that is if your heart can take it! Dogs have a way of getting into your home
and your heart and never letting go.
Give Care for Dogs a call, their number is on Page 15 with the latest dog
that needs a home!
Not a rant but a solution for the reader that wrote in to these pages some
time back looking for a solution to the Wetv endless looping rerun issue.
Two words to the Chiang Mai Mail readers; “Streaming TV” If your internet
connection is decent go online and search for free streaming TV, this will
give you a great list of shows that are available. You must have a fairly
decent internet connection, if you have your own line then it is certainly
possible but if you live in one of those buildings where everyone shares a
connection then it may be more problematic.
I have to tell you Emma, this solution has cured me of my Wetv woes. I still
have Wetv but when they show Grimm or some Syfy movie for the nth time I
power up the laptop and go to one of my bookmarked sites and watch something
No more woes
Dear No More Woes,
Thanks for the tip for our readers. Emma prefers to read a good book and
takes her video entertainment on a big screen in one of the fine theatres
around town; the theatre at the new Promenada is quite nice. However, for
those who like television shows this sounds like a good alternative
especially with the rainy season upon us in full force!
Rainy season blues
I know the rainy season has just started. I do realize that it has only just
started and we have several months to go but the past week of rain and grey
skies has sapped my will to live! I need some sun, even if only for a short
while. I am not so rich and can’t really afford an expensive holiday away
and while I can do some work online I can’t be gone too long. Any
Blue from the rain
AirAsia has a direct flight to Hat Yai. From Hat Yai get a bus to Trang,
it’s a gorgeous little seaside town on the Andaman coast. Not very touristy
at all. You may need to book ahead of time to get cheaper tickets but they
are there! Alternatively, Bangkok Air has direct flights to Phuket from
Chiang Mai. Again book ahead of time but its possible. If you don’t mind a
bus, the Green Bus has a long distance bus that goes to Surat Thani and
Phuket. It may stop at Hua Hin as well.
Enjoy your holidays!
