Of course, me being ME – I did receive a weird pre-Valentine message from some dumb guy that would not stop texting me from the moment I (accidently) gave him my number (months ago).

There is literally no background to this story except that “Mc Creepy” was on and he passed all the preliminary background check questions for me to have an “email relationship” with him.

    Oh good heavens. NO! Did you have any “normal” text exchanges with him before he presented himself in such an, ummmm, titillating way?
