So the other day I get this text from a phone number I didn’t recognize. But it has an auto-signature. It’s signed by a very unusual name. I was immediately interested. The name was the first name of a guy I had a crush on years ago and his name is unusual. All the text said was, “Hey” and then his signature. So what to do? I replied, “Hey!” right back at him. I didn’t reply with my name. Obviously the person has my phone number, but they may or may not know for sure who I am. I signed it with the letter “A” because I wanted to give a hint at who I am just in case they really do know me and I am just being oblivious. So later he replies, “I’m using my Ipod.” Nothing else. So is this the guy I used to have a crush on? Is it some other random man who happens to have the same very odd first name? I dunno. I sent another text. We’ll see what happens. I figured it wasn’t going to hurt anything and it was kind of fun to have some mystery and intrigue.
- I’ve never met you, this is crazy. What’s your number? Don’t call me, maybe? (ask.metafilter.com)
