Naturally, we have got a whole lot of examples for these “what is wrong with him?” moments. . . Read on.
1. “We went on two dates together and he immediately got very obsessive, but I wasn’t into him. I told him I couldn’t talk to him anymore and he acted weird about the whole thing (he asked me if we could just hang out and kiss and not be boyfriend and girlfriend in those exact words). He then proceeded to text me randomly for a full year afterwards.” – JB
2. “First text he sent.” – MA
3. No, just no.
