Coming out of the woodwork

One day in February of 2007, I was bored. I posted an ad on Craigslist inviting guys to email me to chat and pass the time. I said "we'd go from there." If I met anyone from it, I don't remember specifically, and it obviously didn't last.

Why do I care today?

Because someone emailed from it again today. Saying "I know its been a while, but I wanted to know if you are still interested." It looks like I emailed him after his email and he never responded

Um. What? If we didn't hit it off two years ago, what makes you think we'll do so now? I've had two birthdays since then. I've started grad school since then. I could easily have been MARRIED in that time. It's quite presumptuous of him to just email me like that, not to mention desperate.

I think I'll just be ignoring this one.

Just like I ignored the guy who added me on Facebook and after several messages to try to figure out how I knew him, I finally realized it was someone I'd chatted with from Craigslist at somepoint. Also months and months ago. Yeah, no. We won't be talking again.

I also avoid Craiglist personals these days.
