Harassment via Facebook Messenger

Has this method really ever been successful?

Ever since I opened my Facebook page to the public (to advance my Real Estate and writing career),I have been harassed nonstop by men and one woman. And somebody calling me Mommy.

I have not responded. I have just blocked them. Some will just slink quietly away. Some will try again a month later and others will repeatedly video call me.

I’m starting to think that maybe my sister wrote my name on a bathroom stall or something. Because it’s clear from my profile but I am married, recently at that. But these Don Juan’s are not so easily deterred.

I’ve posted a public plea and even threatened to out them. But, they seem to have no shame in their game.

I have put together a few of the most recent but I did cut out the identities of these certifiable nut jobs.

This desperate man wrote me a book. I only provided you, the reader, with page one.

This one still confuses me. I’m not sure if this was a toddler, a full-grown man or a woman but it freaked me out to say the least.

My husband actually told me to tell him yes but I know better than to play with fire.

This fellow was certainly determined to try to reach me via video chat. I finally figured out how to block him. It took me a minute.

This is the only one that I got from a woman. I don’t know why she thought I would respond to “Sup?” at 3:55 in the morning but I blocked her as well once she sent me the follow up question marks.

I think more awareness needs to be taught to our young men. For instance, harassment over messenger is never, ever going to get you laid. So, maybe they should try something different. Like going after someone who has expressed any interest whatsoever in them. That’s always a good start.
