TECHNOLOGY has its advantages these days, but it certainly has some disadvantages as well, such as the ability to track anyone’s phone number.
An unsuspecting woman found out the hard way when she received a random text message.
For screenshots Posted Using the SheRatesDogs Twitter account, an account that allows people to anonymously submit dating stories, one woman shared an odd exchange she had over text messages.
Someone claimed they had previously spoken to her on Tinder but never got back to texting her because they deleted their account.
When she asked how they got her number, she got the answer: “I had a hard time forgetting the beautiful face I was looking at.
“So here we are.”
The woman again asked how they got her number, to which she replied, “I mean it’s 2022, it’s not hard to find a number princess.”
The woman then wrote back, calling the lyricist creepy, but they said it was a “show of sweet persistence.”
After calling the person “borderline terrifying,” she received the worst response of all: “Come on, it’s only scary when the guy is broke, doesn’t have a six-pack, or makes less than $20,000 a month.
“None of that applied here.”
A few people were also extremely startled by the conversation, such as one who commented, “‘cute persistence’ is an interesting term for stalking.”
Another wrote: “The list of why he doesn’t have the number scary actually makes him 100x scarier.”
“My flesh crawled. How scary,” added another.
Oddly enough, others didn’t see anything wrong with the persistent lyricist.
One person wrote: “This is such a weird age thing. We used to have phone books and it wasn’t weird or scary to open them.”
Another commented: “I kinda feel like this isn’t weird but that’s just me. He didn’t come across as creepy and how else was he supposed to contact her if he was interested?
It is also worth mentioning that multiple users warned that this could be some sort of sex trafficking scam, as others have reportedly received similar text messages.
