Every day, thousands of people post personal stories on the internet for both adivce and for our entertainment. The flip side of this treasure trove of juicy anecdotes is that the subjects of the stories can find them just as easily as we did.
People who got busted posting about people, or were the people the stories were about, shared what it was like to have their internet complaints bleed into the real world.
Hopefully nobody finds these posts.
I met a guy (still talk to him occasionally) about five years ago who was in town from the Air Force. We hit it off, went on a date. He later asked me to come to a pub with him to meet his coworkers/buddies. I thought nothing of it and went. To him, it looked sudden but I thanked him and left quickly. He chased me as I left to ask why I was going (he wasn't being creepy). I couldn't really put things in words at the time. I think I just said, I'm sorry I have to go.
