My turn now, a relations matter a bit tamer than the other thread though, with no cheating involved.

I recently went out for the first time with this nice lady I met one night at a dinner party. It was also the last time as far as I wanted, because something seemingly trivial became a big bother for me.

As we talked, it became clear that she knew a lot more about me than I figured, with one thing that ended up as the straw that broke the camel's back, so to speak.

At her work, she accessed a special site that provides satellite close-up images of whatever addresses on earth you want to check on, and she checked on mine. The damn girl looked over my fence without permission!

I just couldn't shake being bothered by what this Peeping Thomasina did - I mean, my home is a place where I don't want the public looking over my shoulder, and where I set the boundaries as to who enters and who doesn't - kind of like one's own bedroom, it not being a public room that guests to the house are to use, without permission.

So, I did not follow up with her, and probably won't. OK -- y'all can now tell me how wrong I am, or not.

Who hasn't looked in Starliner's backyard? You need to lighten up.

You also need to clean your gutters.

I don't know........

I come away from this with a couple of different thoughts.

on the one hand, it could be kind of flattering. Let's say that this women knew you somehow, saw you with a friend or in the neighborhood, whatever.....and you interested her. So she starts asking her friends about you and learns a little here and a little there......and the more she hears the more she likes, but for some reason, you and she just never are in the same place so she can't meet you. One day at work, she mentions it to a co-worker and they decide to look you up on the sattelite for yuks. All pretty innocent when you look at it this way. How many times have you seen a women in your life that you'd like to get to know and did the same kind of things.....it could be no big deal....in which case you may have blown an opportunity for a pretty good thing.

On the other hand, she could be somewhat obsessed...which is creepy.

In the end, you have to trust your own judgement.

Do you know anyone who knows her? Could they tell you if she's "weird" or not?

I shall try to answer you seriously starliner, as opposed to these buffoons:p (not you Len!)

My reaction is "ewww". Your peeping Thomasina would have given me the willies . I would have reacted the same way you did.

I met up with an old boyfriend a while back, and he told me how he'd driven by my house a couple time. That creeped me out; he remained my ex.

Yeah, when chicks know too much, it is creepy.

I'm not sure I'm qualified to answer this, as my other thread may have been too disturbing for our younger viewers!:)

Get over it. Just shows that she's interested.
You don't have a pet rabbit, do you?

I'd have to see a pic first. She would have to be not too young, but not too old.

That's all???

Geesh, if she has the looks, the brains, and likes doing similar things try going out a couple of more times and see if anything else is weird. If not, who cares? She's probably making sure you actually have a house or something. I had a girl one time tell me she was an amateur porn star just to see my reaction. Her friends made her do it. She also took a pic with her cell phone camera and sent it out to every one of her friends when she "went to the bathroom". I only broke up with her because she was obsessed with snowboarding and absolutley nothing else.

Crud, if I even know what street you live on I can look up your house. Here's mine! See, you can see in my backyard! Sorry, my wife wasn't apparently laying out that day. Pics about one year old before I finished landscaping.

no that's the equivalent

of looking through a medicine cabinet and your mail on a first date. This is definetely the type of girl (woman) you only get involved with if she DOESN'T know where you live.

This is the type you say,"Not my house, it's a total mess" but she's way too smart.

53/12 and Hammer!

Well heck. I answered the question before I read the post. Buy anyway, Maybe she wanted to get some 411 on you. Like do you live in the hood or the mountains? Are there trees on your street? How close to the city are you? That's stuff I wonder about myself...specially the hood part. If someone in Chicago wanted to take me out, you know damn sure I'm going to check their neighborhood first. She was probably just mapquesting your address and then linked through to the satallite.

So how did she come by your address anyway?

you've just described 18-55 for me.

and only 18 because there are laws about 17.

the Hood?

I don't think there is too much of a 'hood' where Starliner is from. She's a snoop, 10 years from now she'll have hacked her husband's passsword.

I got it, I got it

follow her home some evening. Play P.I. take pictures, notes, follow her wherever she goes. Tail her for a weekend. Then ask her out and during dinner hand her her dossier.
If she reacts weird say "well that's what you did."
