This Guy Got Asked Out On A Date By A Wrong Number And It Escalated Quickly

By Aimee Lutkin

There is a certain kind of guy who will immediately text the woman he is interested in an erotic pic, and you can usually identify him because he opens the conversation with *creepy asterisks*

If you've never seen or encountered this style of text, it's sort of like role playing. The speaker says everything they're doing in asterisks, and they type out a lot of stuttering. It's believed to have carried over from anime films, where stuttering is supposed to denote shyness or chivalry—but it basically never translates. It's a huge red flag.

This is the story of a creepy asterisk guy named Brandon, who started one of these exact conversations with the girl he was crushing on. Except it was a wrong number. He was actually texting with a guy, Reddit user Th3GreenMan56. Thankfully, Th3GreenMan56 shared the whole conversation with us. And if you feel sorry for Brandon, remember he the picture he sent.
