McKee admits he hasn't contacted "Katie" yet, saying he's waiting for the attention to die down before he reaches out.

She knows how to find him. He should be allowed one "if you're Katie, get in touch" message on his own Facebook page. If he tries to contact her in any other way she should be allowed to retaliate at will. Since she's from DC she is in a gang, works for the government, or knows somebody who is in a gang or works for the government. If a drone strike hits New Zealand by mistake, we'll understand.

I hate how often this needs to be pointed out, but despite what romantic comedies and other movies tell you, stalking is not actually romantic. It's somewhere between creepy and terrifying.

Meh, if they do reunite the odds are that she's batshiat crazy and he'll be running for the hills in no time.

He's a Kiwi.

Now you can understand what it means to be an Australian.

Yeah, he should have gotten her number at the time. If she didn't want to give it up, then...

poor guy wants to bang the first non-sheep he dances with, better go back to wining and dining the sheep.

If you don't get contact info, then they don't want to be contacted. That's a hard and fast rule. Besides, the female population of DC is either career driven staffers or crack addicts, while the female population of New Zealand outnumbers the male. What the hell is wrong with him?

to be fair, the guy sounds like a nice guy trying to be sweet and just being -very- naive.

you have to understand, he comes from a very benign country, one with less than half the population of just the D.C. Metro area alone - in the whole freaking country, total. it makes Montana look densely populated. naive is totally buyable here.

Katie works for the CIA. She was on an undercover assignment last New Year's Eve in Hong Kong.

This dipshiat just exposed her cover. She is most likely being held in for prisoner exchange by some foreign country.

If his side is to be believed, it didn't get to stalking proportions until others got involved.  Granted, considering how many "Katie"s and variants there must be in DC, he probably should've cut his losses anyway since that's probably the level of commitment it would've taken to find her.

Is this the plot to the next Superman movie? Did they get Singer to direct  again!?

Thank you, Mr. Studman, for that contribution. I'll speak for most male Farkers however in saying virtually all of us have dated worse, and enjoyed much of the experience.

The guy should have gotten a number, though. He's just announced an intent towards celibacy with that stunt.

I think we have already determined the batshiat crazy party in this, and it ain't her.

Uhh no.  When you post someone picture on facebook without their permission and ask for help finding them that's pretty much stalking.  Unless it's like someone who is actually lost or missing.  If you don't have someones number or even last name by the end of the night they don't want you to have it.

If romantic comedies extended their plots by a year, restraining orders would be a staple of the genre. There's a reason things cut out when they do.

turns out she's Liam Neeson's daughter, so I'm sure she'll be fine.

I think he's kinda odd, but I don't think he qualifies as a stalker. At the end of their night together, she TOLD him, "Find me." It took him a while, and he was really, really "loud" about it, but he did. If you read the article, it says that though he has found her (as requested), he hasn't contacted her yet because of all the fuss and because her mad rush from all social media has made it clear to him that she has some problems with the whole thing. Sounds fairly reasonable to me, except for the part where he did not consider the potential ramifications of getting the whole damned nets involved in his personals column drama.

Naturally, all this is predicated upon the fact that he is telling the truth, which is by no means a sure bet.

Nope. He started it as soon as he posted what information he had publicly. The involvement of others made it big enough that even he could see that it was wrong, but it was wrong from the start.

"Somewhere along the line my romantic soul went silent, and this is a step towards putting that right. While the main aim of this event has been to reconnect with the now infamous 'Katie,' it's also about me, finding myself and who I know I can be. I hope to find her. And along the way, find myself."

Cock punch, indeed.

It helps to know that "charming naivety" is part of the New Zealand national psyche.

Also, in a country of 4 million a friend of a friend is bound to know the person you're looking for - so this sort of approach would totally work for him back home.

Is that the picture he took?  Based on the background it looks like they met in an empty warehouse which makes me think they are both working undercover.

That'd make for a hilarious comedy movie.

If this gets the fairy tale ending it would in a movie, they're going to have a great story to tell the grandkids. I can see it now...

"Grandma, how did you and Grandpa meet?"
"Well, Sweetheart, we met in Hong Kong after I got separated from my friends. We partied for a while before I ditched him. Then, your Grandpa spent the next year stalking me on the internet from halfway across the world. I knew then we were meant to be together."

Um, if she says "Find me" and doesn't give you any means of doing so, she doesn't really want you to find her.

Didn't the original article that hit fark list that if she gave such vague information to him, she didn't want to be found and wasn't interested?

If a dude from New Zealand fell romantically in love with me, I'd be hopping on that like nobody's business.  A path to New Zealand citizenship?  Sign me up!

I think it's kind of romantic. Though if he keeps after her and she keeps trying to ignore them then it's not good.

There is a fine line, but I am living proof this is not true. I am currently married to a person who i tracked down (not using the internet) after rain wet the napkin she left a number on. I had a few leads and kept on looking, striking out a few times before I found her. She thought it was sweet and we eventually dated and got married.
