A man ten years older than me sent me a long message declaring his undying love for me, said he was going to leave his wife and kids for me how he couldn't stop thinking of me and he wanted to be with me forever and how he'd divorce her so we could be together...I was 18 and barely said a few words to him
When I was a sophomore in high school a girl in one of my classes told me she would kill herself if she couldn't be my girlfriend. I really had no idea what to make of this and didn't understand at the time that it was really all about her and not about me at all. Of course I pretended to be her boyfriend, but we never so much as made out. A couple of times we went on long walks after school and that was about the extent of our relationship.
Not me, but my female friend. A man sent her a d**k pic in which he had inserted a pencil, with the caption "A whole this big could fill your entire body with my l**d". Romantic. Also, what the actual hell.
About a year after graduating high school, I was playing hockey with my buddy when both of our phones beep. It was our former HS band teacher. We had his number from a cross country field trip the band went on. The message:
Hey guys it’s [former band teacher]. Group gang bang tonight. Let me know if your in.
When I was 11 I got a kik to message friends after I moved out of the country. It was very obvious I was 11. When people asked me, I said I was 11. I can't even remember how many explicit sexual messages and d**k pics I received.
I was running late for work one morning, a couple years ago, and got a phone call from a local number I didn't recognise. Asked who was calling and a deep, muffled voice said something like "it's Mike". I didn't know any Mikes and figured it was a wrong number, so I said as much, hung up and kept getting ready.
Then I heard my phone go off again. And again. And again. Checked my texts and I had a series of messages like "I'm at the hotel" "I'm opening the door to your room" "You're naked on the bed" etc. from the same number. I'd had enough by that point so I replied "If this is (friend who loved to pull pranks), f**k you. And if this is a psychopath, can we do this later? I'm late for work. Thanks".
They replied "You're funny, bye" and that was the last I heard from them. Grilled all of my friends and I'm sure none of them were behind the messages.
Was playing some CS:GO. Teammate started out really nice at the start of the game. We started losing and he got really really toxic. I told him to calm down or something like that and he said “I will f**king kill you in real life.” After the game he sent me a friend request. I accepted expecting him to do some trash talking and call me shit. Instead he sent me my Address, My dad’s full name and my phone number. Being 16, I was terrified.
I run a gift card business that is specifically destined to be in my small country. I make the card, we plan on a meetup, I give them the card, I get paid, we go our separate ways.
I got a message from a guy, wanting a card for a friend's birthday. All fine, I made the card, and we met up. I got my money, and we left. A week later, I got a text from him. Thinking it might be a thank you, or a review, as I often get those, I checked it, but it just said: "I like your shirt."
This got me a little suspicious, as I was wearing my favourite shirt that had a transformers logo on it, so I just replied with a "Thanks", and moved on. Then I got a message almost immediately after I put it down, saying, "I like transformers too."
I immediately got paranoid and moved away from where I was sitting. I then replied with a warning that I will call the police on him, and that I had his number, and that I still remembered what he looked like. He backed off after that.
My business is still running, but I'm much more careful now.
A guy was writing me on Grindr. I wasn't interested, so I said I wasn't interested. He keeps persisting that we should meet tonight. I was like w/e, stopped responding. Then he said he would take his car to come find me. When i refreshed the app I saw the distance drop from 3000m to 200m. He was like "I'm close now". Then I blocked him, turned off all lights in my apartment (I live on the 1st floor). Now I'm careful to have distance showing on dating apps... :/
I once had a 55 year old stalker. He came into my job everyday for a year before he introduced himself to me. Never said a word to me in person. But he wrote me a 5 page introduction letter. He wrote about how special I am and how my boyfriend doesn't deserve me, that I need a special kind of love. He wrote about how perfect he could be for me and he has what it takes to please me. He wrote about how our interests are similar and about how he can take care of me. He mentioned many things I have talked about with other customers while he must have been present in the store. He also left me presents. Two antique glass heart ornaments. He left the letter and presents on my car where I parked in the lot out back. It was creepy as hell because I was closing that night by myself and locked up and left by myself. And I didn't find this out until later, but he lived in the house that bordered the back lot. So he was probably watching me through the blinds (later realized he was watching me through his blinds for some time and he wouldn't stop) as I was reading the letter. I honestly thought it was some kind of joke! I thought it was from these boys in town just making fun of me. Anyway, the messages kept coming so eventually I had to contact the police. And it turns out it really was this 55 year old man with an unusual obsession against me so I did have to get a restraining order and he was no longer allowed to step foot in my job. Nor was I allowed to leave work alone. I was also 20 at the time. So creepy.
A random number send me a long sms in which he argue that I shouldn't be f**king truck drivers for cheap money while I can hook up with him and his rich friends for much more money. I replied that I am a guy and he probably has the wrong number, to which he replied that he knew who am I and gave me my university dorm address. I blocked him instantly but it creeped me so much then. It may be a prank but it didn't sound like one, and I was an international student there so I didn't really have friends who would prank me like this.
This happened when I was around 16 or 17. I was on a bus and in my school’s sport uniform. Then I got a text from an unsaved number asking “are you not cold in those thin clothes?” (It was a chill morning)
So looked around inside the bus immediately and got another text: “stop looking you’re not going to find me.”
I accidentally got talking to a crazy Christian chick who was engaged to get married in a few months. Her husband is a ginger and I am also - turns out she has a major fetish for them.
One day she was talking to me online while playing a modded version of the Sims video game. She popped up and said "hey, look what I built". She sends me a few screenshots of the game: turns out she'd made myself and her husband in a gay relationship on the game. The details were scarily accurate with the face / body creation. The first screenshot I got was me, in game, naked (the mod has full nude Sims with penises and all) with my legs spread on a kitchen bench with her husband f**king me in the a**.
Yes, I still have the pictures. I slowly stopped talking to her after that.
I received a recycled number and the previous owner had used it everywhere from his bank to shopping websites so I used to get a lot of spam. I even tried to explain to the bank when they called regarding the account. One day someone added me on Snapchat through my phone number and upon seeing my Snapchat story, a 35 year old woman replied to my story of watching Star wars by saying "I attended your funeral."
Used to live across the street from the high school. There was a field out back where the football players would practice. We had just moved there to a new town and so I didn't really know anyone yet. I was just at home one night, scrolling Facebook on the family computer in the main room when I got a FB message from a kid I kinda knew the name of but hadn't talked to.
He told me I looked good and he was happy that he knew where I lived. I think he was trying to be funny and break the ice but I often think about how hard he must cringe looking back. It was like the start of a teenage stalker horror movie.
When I first got a phone around like 4th grade (reasons exist) I randomly got a text saying Hi, I responded, they claimed to now me, I asked what they looked like. I got sent a d**k pic, deleted that number quick.
Last year I was idly wasting away my afternoon when I got a message notification on Facebook. I opened it up and it was a 20 year old guy saying “Are you (my full legal name)?” No one really knows my full name, so I figured this kid knew me. I opened up his page and he lives halfway across the States from me, we have no mutual friends, and, as far as I can tell, we would have had no way to ever meet. I respond, “Yeah?” to which he responds “I am going to f**king murder you. 🙂”
I am 27 years old and not terribly paranoid, but this shook me to my very core. As far as I know, I still have him blocked on Messenger.
When I was around thirteen, I got a text message saying something like "I'm the tooth fairy, make a wish." I asked the person who they were, they kept trying to get me to tell them what I wanted. My mom and I promptly called the police.
Not me, but my mom. My mom was selling shoes on Craigslist and got a message from a man who I guess basically had a foot fetish and also some sort of female domination fetish? He was like, “I’m a very submissive guy. I have some fish net stockings that I think would look great on you...” without ever seeing my mom. Anyway, needless to say she was very creeped out.
