I recently received an email from an old flame, a generic “add me to your Yahoo Messenger list”. I don’t use Yahoo Messenger anymore, having decided that Twitter and FaceBook more than suit my communication needs online. I haven’t spoken to this particular guy in months, and then it was a very brief email from him saying Mazel Tov for the wedding. We dated very briefly (a month?) way back when – nice enough guy but obviously not for me.
So why is he adding me, or wanting to add me, to his contact list? Last I hear he was engaged to get married. I discussed this with my KoD who agreed with me that this is not appropriate – but the innocent part of me (yes there is one) wonders if this could be simply an innocuous way for him to say hi once in a while.
