It was a low-key Saturday night. I was home, tired from the workweek and shaking my bonbon the weekend before at LQ’s.  I may be an empowered 31-year-old, but I can't party like a rockstar any more! I lay in bed, flipping through channels, when my phone beeped indicating I had a text message. Maybe it was Mr. Alcohol, I thought.  He had stuck to the 3-day rule and then some.  I looked at my Blackberry screen. Nope, it wasn’t Mr. Alcohol. It was a work email from an unknown contact.  I sighed, expecting a message from an advertiser or an email from a potential writer, and clicked it open.

“I have been following your columns for a long time. I just wanted to tell you that I can't believe you are not married with a good man. You have all the qualities that any man would want in a wife. You are smart, beautiful, sexy, funny, insightful and always interesting. I would be lucky to have someone like you in my life.”


"Scorpio?" I wondered aloud, confused. I wasn’t sure if I should be flattered or scared. Maybe I should accept his invitation, it could turn out to be incredibly romantic ... or gruesomely frightening. Did I have a stalker on my hands or was he just a guy who really thought I was great and wanted to meet me? And the most important question: Was I crazy enough to email him back and find out?

I wasn't sure. So I saved the email, put the phone back down and continued flipping through channels. It was the safest thing to do. 

What do you think ladies? Should I email him back or let this potential stalker go?
