Texts From a Woman's Admirer Launch a Debate About Romance and Boundaries


New phone, who dis? These days, receiving a text from an unknown number has become something of a norm. Whether it's someone whose contact we're knowingly not saving, a pushy telemarketer who's trying their shot at direct message marketing, or that friend who's always changing their number, we usually know how to react to this kind of unsolicited text.

But how about when it's someone you met casually and never gave your contact info who, unbeknownst to you, put hours of time and research into tracking you down? It can go from innocently "random" to bonafide creepy within a matter of seconds.
