I have been solicited recently. Three incidents in two weeks! I think they were mild and more of business in nature. But I cannot confirm. I am just a normal looking bloke. I wondered why the fuss.
A few days back I received another usual, " I would like to know you better..." message. The pattern seemed similar. The difference is that this one came in through my private email address. Except for the bloggers I know, I do not recall giving my email address out to anyone in the fraternity. I personally do not think there would be an issue letting this group of bloggers have my private email address.
I was curious as to who this person was. I know my protocols very well. I wondered how this soul got to my private email address. Or could it be that someone I know is trying to probe my orientation. As I was pretty tied up, I just simply told the person I do not recall knowing him. I asked for his contact so I can verify who he was. So this mail came in today:
"Remember I spoke to you briefly at the changing room? I am working as a PA. I am sorry I over heard your conversation with your contact where you gave your email address to. sorry about it. That's where you seems stressed and I did not manage to talk to you further. Attracted by your fair skin with nice looking hair. I thought you are Japanese. I am 30 years old and had a stable career. Are you married? Or in any relationship. Let me be frank! I am looking for friends to develop into a relationship. My sexual orientation is clear to you now and I will know that I would have judge you wrong if you do not reply me anymore.I would give you my hp after you reply this mail. I am average looking and fit if you could remember. "
I give him credit for his frankness. I think my hair sucks. I wish it would be thicker and not be as soft as a baby's. Thanks for the compliment.
I certainly must be more careful. I should not simply blab out information in the public. Obviously people are listening. I shudder thinking what if it was a credit card verification process. The other party would have got all my information when I answered the banker on the other side of the line. Lastly I should just leave work aside before gym. This has been stressing me out so much that I sometimes am just too tired to start my workout. It defeats the whole purpose of working out.
I really must be more careful. This I must remind myself always.
