Yesterday I went to the zoo with my friend who’s visiting for winter break. When we were in one section of the zoo one of the workers started talking to us and he asked us to take pictures of him with the animals with our cameras. So we snapped away at the handsome guy surrounded by Lemurs. When he was satisfied with our shots he took my number to send a text message with his email to my phone, so I could later send him the pictures. Innocent, right?
Later he texted me a text reminding me to send him the pictures with a smiley face, I told him I would and thought that would be it. Later I received another text from him saying I should add him on Facebook. So I did, figuring rather than emailing him all the photos I could just tag him, so it made it easier for me.
This morning I received a text inviting my friend and me to a pool party with a bar and DJ that ends in the morning. My friend and I joked which one of us would be his date but I told her since she is single she should go for it. I then signed onto Facebook and decided to look at his pictures. I noticed he had some with a lady and smiling small kids. Before jumping to conclusions I texted him asking if he was married and he said yes, and that he got married young, at age 19.
My friend and I were both a little taken by the news. We replayed the scene and decided his behavior was not all innocent and he sent mixed messages. He could have done things very differently. He could have simply written his email down and left it at that. He shouldn’t have asked me to add him on Facebook in my opinion and shouldn't have invited us to a party.
Maybe we are both looking to into it to much, or maybe he was wrong. I am curious to see the view of Broowaha on this matter. Do you think he was crossing lines or just being friendly?
