Blocked

Around 15 years since we stopped writing (she called me a "wanker"), an old flame looked me up. Had some request about helping them with their website. We caught up a bit. Turns out they're in a bad marriage with a controlling man and have an adolescent. Then they started creeping my old Facebook posts, that kind weirded me out. Then proposed coming to visit me (pretty sure the husband wasn't informed). Then the next day sent a map with directions to a provincial park to meet between our cities that weekend. I said I wasn't comfortable with that. Then they kept doing more of the same lurking and sending me strange messages. Now it's clear theyre onto plandemic conspiracy bullshit and sending me links to misinformative documentaries and articles. I just feel sorry for her at this point but she's really not my problem. I've now blocked her for crossing boundaries I never knew I had. Did 15 years without being friends, guess I can live with longer. That was just weird.

Good for you

People have such difficulties with boundaries: setting them, being aware of them and/or respecting them. It was wise of you to nip this in the bud. It bears all the hallmarks of becoming a tangled, emotionally draining extra-marital mess. No one needs that kind of drama in their life.
I don't get wanting to reconnect with exes from so long ago. I'm sure you're a great person, but you've both changed so much in 15 years. What makes her think that you two can still relate to each other, let alone that an attraction still exists. I get that she's desperate, but expecting you to rescue her out of a bad marriage is way too much to expect.

So many stories like this out there.
Sometimes im not sure social meda sites are a safe way to meet people or reconnect anymore.
You never know what or whom you are going to attract, even unknowingly doing the most innocent of things..
Chatting.

I had an old classmate reach out to me 3 years ago saying he had a great deal for me. It was a scam and a ponzi scheme. I had to block him on Facebook.

Thanks folks

At ooh, it's so cliche I don't even want to mention it but they're a naturopath...

Has written things like she would like the husband to die and she just likes the house.

This reminded me that at one point in our 20s that she had decided to move in with me without any discussion or definition of our relationship...
