It's always the creepy guys...

Honestly, I wonder why I always attract the creepy guys!

Church tonight was interesting. After worship, Pastor Neil said to turn and greet our neighbors. So I turned to my left where there was a group of women. I said hi to all of them and turned to walk back to my seat. This guy was standing right in front of me.

"Phyllis, right?"
"Uh, no, I'm Elizabeth."

I wonder what even sparked him to guess a name considering I had never met this guy before.

"Do you mind if I sit next to you?" he asked.
"Umm, sure go ahead."

He sat down to my right, luckily with my jacket sitting in between us. It was awkward though...cuz as the service went on, he kept scooting closer. He would end up kinda on top of the edge of my jacket, and I would pull it away and scoot farther away from him. I contemplated getting up and pretending to go to the bathroom and bailing out and sitting in the overflow in the fellowship hall. But then I just ended up staying there thinking that this craziness will all be over when church is done.

But then when it ended, I had to figure out how to get out. Do I just walk away without saying anything? Or do I politely say, "Well it was nice meeting you! Goodbye"? Before I was even able to figure out what I was gonna do, he says, "Elizabeth, are you Egyptian?"

Creeeeepy! How does this guy know I am Egyptian?! Is he stalking me or something?!

"Yes, I am," I replied.
"I'm Italian."
"Uhh ok."

Awkward silence.

"Do you like me?" he asks.


At that point, I wasn't even trying to be nice anymore.

"Uhh, I just met you," I said. "Umm, sorry, I gotta get going now. Bye."

Then I bailed.

I walked over really quickly to the high school so I could say hi to Pastor Bill. He wasn't there. I walk over to the Arabic Fellowship room where my parents are, but they aren't done yet. I walk into the cafe, use the bathroom, and open the door to leave. Creepy guy is standing with his family right outside the door!! So I quickly close the door and stand alone in the bathroom for about 5 minutes to avoid seeing him again. Finally, I leave and manage to get back to the Arabic Fellowship without being seen.

Man! Why does this sort of thing happen to me all the time?!
