As an active online dater I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later. Before I tell you what happened on my 50 Fat Dates quest I need to get you up to speed on a few details.

The Backstory

I work in Beverly Hills and get my coffee from the same cafe every day. It’s my work day ritual and a little bit like Cheers without the beers. You know, the baristas at the cafe know my name and as soon as they see me walk through the door they start making my coffee. It’s pretty awesome. For the record I like a large hot mocha. Kinda like my ex-boyfriend.

There was a week where I worked from my boss’s penthouse and got my mocha from the cafe’s sister store on Fairfax. When returned to my regular Beverly Hills cafe one of the baristas said I had been spotted at Larchmont. I’ve never been there! I confessed that I had been to the Fairfax store but not Larchmont.  I thought it was a simple case of mistaken identity and went about my regular work day. When I get home I get this message on OKCupid.

OMG the message is the guy from the Fairfax store! He had obviously told the Beverly Hills staff he met me (hence them questioning me about going to another store.) I didn’t think it was a big deal at all. I’m just a regular customer who happened to go to two different stores. How did this conversation come up between the coffee shop staff? How did the Fairfax guy know I went to Beverly Hills and report on my coffee buying ways? Was it a coincidence that the Beverly Hills store called me out then the barista found me on OKCupid or was he LOOKING for me? Who was at the Larchmont store?

Here’s what I wrote back to the OKCupid inquiry:

And his non-response:

50 Fat Dates

What do you think? Is he a stalker or a sweetie? I don’t want to end up on a date with the killer and replicate a CSI episode. I’ll admit that I’ve been avoiding going to the Fairfax store since the OKCupid message.

What would you do?

Is he a stalker

    Wait – we need more info. Did you tell anyone at Fairfax that you’re a regular at Beverly Hills?

      Hi Lee. Nope, I don’t think so. I just went in and ordered a coffee.

    Do the baristas work at more then be shop? Like are they moved around. Maybe another one from your regular spot happened to be there

    Yeah – without some sort of connection to Beverly Hills, it could be odd. The only thing I can think of is that he randomly told someone at Beverly Hills that there was a super cute Aussie in the store, and then one of your regular Baristas made the connection. You could always ask him how the info got back to Beverly Hills, decide if it sounds reasonable enough, and then give him (or don’t give him) a shot based on whether or not the answer creeps you out. It’s flattering to be noticed, but not to be stalked.
