Nothing creepier than realising that one of the 50+year old men who has messaged you more than once on OKCupid, with a missive that, while not outright rude or NSFW, pinged up at least a couple of red flags, especially given the repeated messages even when you don't reply...

...works in your office.

Thankfully, the reason I didn't catch on at first (aside from my fucking memory) was that I've never actually had to interact with him in a professional capacity, so his face - and I've never had a good memory for faces - sort of disappeared into the crowd.

It was only today when I caught sight of him in profile that I had a sudden thought of 'hey, he looks familia-oh no." Double checked, and yes, it's him.

*sigh* Life, would it be so hard to ask for a date that, y'know, I could actually get excited or hopeful about? I mean, really?

*mutter, grumble, not worth the damned hassle.*

Absolutely fine; he has so far avoided eye contact with me, never mind actually speaking to me, so either he hasn't realised who I am either or he knows he was skirting a line (he's technically senior to me although we're in vastly different departments) and isn't chancing it.

If the latter, frankly, that makes him even more creepy, to be honest...
