Yep! Ever since ex and I split in 11... I "attempted" to hang with a gal last year for a few months. Many similar interests/etc. She approached me around the beginning of the year. Went out for concert in Feb, dinner/lunch a few times, car shows, etc. We went to a car show in may in PA. Had separate rooms/etc. Only sat near each other at show. Each did our own things all weekend. She drops some BS she "felt suffocated and needs space" that Monday.... WTH? I was like "UM.OK?...." And deleted her number. Yep from SoMd.... Not a crackhead (govt employee). And she shows up at the same damn hotel back in October at a show in Charlotte....
You may recall a similar incidence that happened about 25 years ago in the Lexington Park area. A Navy Warrant Officer shot another Sailor with a crossbow at an apartment complex. Upon killing him, the WO cut up the body and distributed it around the area. Some body parts were found in a dumpster at Spring Ridge Middle school where one of my Daughters attended. The WO's wife who was separated from him, was seeing the other Sailor. Believe the Wo was assigned to Strike at the time. Out on bail, he was at work in uniform making people nervous. Found guilty, incarcerated.
It shouldn't be too hard to avoid that level of crackhead.
There is SO much dysfunction in that community that whole families are addicts and they seem to hang out with others that do the same thing. Eventually, I guess you get used to seeing it and don't even notice how bad some people look, and they seem to have no problems "dating" Also, some people seem to function and are able to hold down a job somehow as addicts.
