Stalking for Cheesecake

I’ve had some unfortunate run-ins with guys, but not have been worse than the creepy stalker.

I had hung out with this guy and knew he just wasn’t my type and I didn’t want to see him again. I was very busy with med school (try being a third year in the midst of our annual musical) and literally barely had time to sleep.

First, he started calling me.  While I was at clinic.  And you can’t answer your phone in clinic (who wants their doctor answering the phone in clinic?)  He called me NINE TIMES. And continually texted me because I couldn’t talk to him right then.

I called him while I was driving home from clinic.  Where he made mistake #2….

“Why haven’t you called me?  You’re supposed to call me on a daily basis. Because you’re my girlfriend.”

#1, I already was going to tell him I had never wanted to see him again. #2, we had barely hung out and I DEFINITELY was not his girlfriend.  I then proceeded to tell him exactly that.

That night, my doorbell rang.  Standing outside my door was this guy.  Crying. And not just tears in his eyes, but full-on man sobs that should be reserved for events like your wife or child dying. And during these sobs he begged me to take him back (which made no sense because I never had him in the first place).  I told him to go home and leave me alone.

And then mistake #3…he showed up at my door sobbing on a weekly basis for the next 2 months.

Mistake #4 deserves a blog post all to itself.

  1. Yeah bookmaking this wasn’t a risky determination great post!

  2. …that sounds terrible… but I like the way you handled it! Delusional guys geez… And that cheesecake looks amazing, with fairly simple ingredients! Must try!!

  3. Er..slightly awkward..

    I’ve never tried making cheesecake..I find the consistency so weird!

  4. Picture looks good and recipe sounds light (just how I like it!) Have you ever tried a Japanese cheesecake?

    1. Nope but I’m normally willing to try anything!

  5. Found a slew of recipes online, actually. Very silky consistency with a cookie dough base. Might be worth a try since this recipe also sounds delicate 🙂 .

Give me your thoughts!
