So I get up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy. Then a lady knocks at the door. I answered, and she asked me a lot of questions about when I was and wasn't home, as though casing for someone. She also tried to look inside, and questioned why the lights were off.

I told the office and they said she had just moved in below me and was asking a lot of people "stalker" questions.

She just knocked again (night now) and was drunk and crying about a whole bunch of random shit in her life. Like how a guy didn't give her 5k for shooting a porno.

Then she did it again and showed me pictures of her baby.

Then she did it again and offered me wine for god knows what reason. Obviously I refused.

I plan on talking to the office again to figure out what the fuck is going on.

I'm a bit torn here. On the one hand, my gargantuan heart wants to give her someone to talk to. But my brain is like fuck that shit, she's insane. Which is true. She spent time in a psychiatric hospital. I'm leaning towards 90% brain, 10% heart. If she insists on bothering us, my current plan is to offer to talk for an hour once a week outside. Cthulu knows she could use it. If she bothers me at any other time I'll tell her to fuck off and/or call the police.

Thoughts? Past experience?

Awkward turtle is my thought, I really don't have anything to offer advice-wise though >.>

I've known a couple of people like that in my life. There's very little you can actually say to a crazy person, life's fucked them. They're also very hard to predict - which makes them quite dangerous to be around both socially and physically.

She may not know a single other person on the face of the earth. And some people really do not do well with that sort of loneliness even if they're otherwise mentally stable. Nonetheless, if she's so transparently nuts, my advice is to stay well away.

You don't want to become her precious person - crazy people can react very extremely to that, and there's no real telling in what direction they'll go.

You're probably right Nem. Hmmm...I rather don't like not trying to help people, but she is likely far beyond what I feel I could at all approach safely.

Don't worry, that's just your conscience trying to confuse your common sense. Ignore it and it'll go away.

It'd be nice if the world was a warmer place in that sort of regard. But if you want it to be so you have to take on the associated risks and I'm not sure that it makes sense to do so in this way.

Perhaps if you do think of any advice you want to give her, or some encouragement or something, you should just anonymously post it to her. But I can't think of too much else.

Damn conscience, always trying to get me killed.

It would be nice, but you're quite right. I have no means to be helpful, and am in no way capable or willing to take on such risk.

:agreed

I'd also suggest trying to not seem like a complete dick about trying to stay away, though. That can end up just as badly. <.

This happened to me recently with a girl at work. We were in the breakroom together and just happened to start chatting. Hit it off well enough. She's cute, we like the same obscure things, etc. I friended her on Facebook.

MISTAKE.

She's like an uberstalker. :cort:

.....so yeah, be careful Ospank.
