Perdition Revisited...

I open my email on Wednesday and all is normal. I delete the twenty junk emails, check out the jcrew sale, catch up with a few friends, save the 14th email from the guy the girls and I met on vacation that I mean to write back, then happen to notice a familiar address that makes my blood run cold. The 'crazy' guy has written me again.

There have been a lot of conventionally questionable men in my life, but the 'crazy' guy stands alone.

Two years ago some acquaintances got me liquored up and dragged me to Cowboys, a country music dance club where rednecks go to find mates. I loathe country music and rednecks, but when I've had a few too many seabreezes I am a sucker for beautiful eyes and a strong jaw. I ended up talking to Adam for an hour. He was nice, he was definitely cute, and in my inebriated state I thought it was neat that he was an airline mechanic for the airline that I was spending way too much time on. I gave Adam my cellphone number (and apparently my email address). Adam called, I went out on ONE date with him, was reminded that my cerebral attraction to men is much stronger than my physical attraction and wrote him off, but that was not the last of Adam. Adam sent flowers, he sent poems, he sent a Build-a-Bear workshop rabbit with a note attached telling me about his hopes and dreams. Adam began sending emails and text messages before I boarded a flight telling me that he "hoped I had a safe flight in seat 3B". Adam freaked me the HELL out! After about three months (during which time I moved) I didn't hear from him anymore. I was happy that Adam has exhausted himself and was unable to find me.

Fast-forward to Wednesday. Adam had emailed me. He had apparently come across a momento of our ONE date and thought he should get in touch. I did not respond.

You should maybe switch to Airtran or Delta as appropriate.
