Must have been a helluva first date.
 
2012-06-16 03:16:51 PM  
Women are always saying that guys don't want to commit, but then there's this guy...
 
2012-06-16 03:17:47 PM  
Every breath you take
Every move you make...
 
2012-06-16 03:51:11 PM  
So very creepy.
 
2012-06-16 03:51:18 PM  
At least the woman has an eight-year head start go get way, way the hell away from Shepard.

No. No, she hasn't. There is such a thing as the Internet in prison. This guy is good at stalking. And prisons don't give a fark what the inmates are doing, as long as the inmates suck up enough to the guards. Some inmates run very successful scam businesses from inside.

He'll just get more and more angry while there, keep track of her, write and email her from prison, get out in 8 years, and escalate to bodily harm or murder.

This is the kind of guy that needs to be exposed to the internet. Wouldn't mind seeing him receive some of the discomfort he's caused that woman over the course of 18 years. (18 years? dude, get a farking life)
 
2012-06-16 04:09:31 PM  
She should agree to a second date. It would totally throw him off, maybe to the point where he'd lose interest.

Plastic surgery, new name, leave the country.
 
2012-06-16 04:20:22 PM  
maybe she shouldn't have led him on like she did.

/just sayin'

What's his Fark handle?

If this story was a movie starring Hugh Grant, it would make $100 million the first weekend.

The My Little Pony Killer: What's his Fark handle?


Well, who hasn't posted recently?
 
2012-06-16 04:23:50 PM  
19 years of creepy dedication

Or, as Farkers call it, a long-term relationship.
 
2012-06-16 04:24:33 PM  
I wonder how much she'd have to pay an inmate at his prison to.................. dissuade him.

/Twinkies and cigarettes are like farking gold bullion in those places

Hate to say it, but you're probably right.

/This is why I hate the Twilight series
 
2012-06-16 04:27:21 PM  
Jeeze, it isn't stalking, it it loving from a distance.

Makes me think of that creepy Google-stalky commercial with the guy trying to win back his "girlfriend."

I'll find you and destroy all you've built and care about.

Want to catch up at Panera sometime?
 
2012-06-16 04:31:19 PM  
Wow. That's horrible. That poor woman.

She should have purchased a gun, made multiple phone calls to the police frantically telling them how she feared for her life, and then (when they did nothing) shot this farker.

I don't think anyone would have even suggested that she wasn't acting in self defense.

But.. hollywood says that sort of dedication is beautiful

..Also, why is he wearing a ripped Snuggie?
 
2012-06-16 04:33:06 PM  
Sounds like a marriage I know about

BTW, I skipped the obvious "So a guy named Moses doesnt reach the promised land after decades of wandering" joke.
 
2012-06-16 04:34:40 PM  
So.....what did he do that was wrong? Besides have bad taste in women. That ungrateful paranoid biatch.
 
2012-06-16 04:35:20 PM  
U can ?HAz Journanalist duhgree!

Can I get a job writing? Judging from this article you need to be conscious and have the literary skills of an elementary school student. In this economy you'd think you'd be able to find competent writers in the vast sea of unemployed liberal arts majors.
 
2012-06-16 04:35:28 PM  
Gotta admire that level of dedication I usually only stalk women for 8 years, tops
 
2012-06-16 04:36:04 PM  
Why does she have to be such a biatch? He obviously loves her if he's so dedicated to her.

Unfortunately, I have to agree with you. This nut job will probably be in the headlines in a few years for killing her. I hope she's able to get far, far away from him. Or, he is shanked in prison and is no longer a threat to her. I have to believe he's done nothing to benefit society. People like this are drains on all of us and serve no useful purpose.

Don't worry, you'll find that special someone someday.

I doubt it. It would probably make things a whole lot worse, as these guys are typically psychotic control freaks.
*shudder*

I guess this Shepard isn't going to get his Tali.

/because Talimancers tend to be really farking creepy
//not all
///but many

I hate the bullshiat stand your ground laws, but this may be a case where it could actually be used in a positive way. She needs to buy a gun.
 
2012-06-16 04:40:10 PM  
Dedication, commitment, perseverance. There are qualities we are looking for in new employees at Goldman Sachs...

If he tries to start this up again when he gets out of prison, she should agree to a second date, then shoot him in the head and claim self defense. Just put a chloroform-soaked rag in his hand and sprinkle some crack on him for good measure before calling the police. Seriously. This guy is dangerous.

I was going to comment, then saw your Fark handle.
 
2012-06-16 04:42:38 PM  
A lesson to the ladies of the internet: This is stalking. The guy who messaged you "Hey" on Facebook yesterday? Not stalking.
 
2012-06-16 04:43:22 PM  
I wonder if she put out on the first date.

zerkalo: Relevant story from a few months ago:

31-year-old sex offender who has stalked a middle school acquaintance for decades was sentenced to 26 years in prison


Jesus, that guy is scary. Just lock him up forever and save a lot of people a lot of heartache.

Don't use my tax-dollars keeping that freak locked up. Put 'em down. It's the best solution.

/Or make him fall in love with Nancy Pelosi instead.
 
2012-06-16 04:47:15 PM  
i feel for the guy. i've been there ya know. i met this girl 2 years ago and we hit it off that first night pretty well. we must have talked for all of 30 minutes. now she won't see me or take my calls, texts, emails, candygrams, flowers. she won't answer the door when i knock. raise the curtain when i tap on the window. go to her car when i stand in the yard waiting for her.

some days she sends some guy out to chase me off. says he is her husband. no way she would ever be with a clown like him when she has a guy like me available. and the stupid police keep trying to stand in our way too. now every time i hear sirens i feel the need to hide until they go away.

i hope he doesn't give up. true love always finds a way whether it likes it or not.
 
2012-06-16 04:47:32 PM  
So now it's illegal to express your love for someone.
 
2012-06-16 04:48:05 PM  
I think he likes her

Geeze. I can even remember the name of girls I've danced with at Cons less than a year ago. Hell I can't even remember the name of the first girl to kiss me.
 
2012-06-16 04:52:53 PM  
She should just Mosby this guy. Problem solved.

This dude will not stop until he's dead. I hate to go all ITG here, but she should call him from a prepaid cell, invite him over, then drill his ass with a .45. Put knife in his hand, and call 911.

What if he's white?
