    I met this girl recently who is interested in me. This just doesn't happen, so I'm giving this event some attention. There's a problem though.

    She's crazy. Like, actually-believes-she-can-affect-the-weather-with-her-mind crazy. She told me once of how she willed some rain to fall one day, but it was too much and she had to contact some of her friends to help her telekinetically calm the storm clouds. She honestly believes this.

    You know how some girls have those tattoos on the smalls of their backs? They're usually of flowers, butterflies, guns, text, whatever. She has one. It's a Tie fighter dueling an X-Wing. What girl does that?

    Tonight over the phone, she just told me the reason she's been feeling tired recently is because there is a ethereal energy vampire who stalks her in her dreams. She said she sees him when she's half asleep and has to physically fight him off now and then. She's into Taro cards, astrology, karma, the whole bit.

    But she's good looking, a good person and she's interested in me.

    I'm a logical thinker through and through and I know for certain her craziness would eventually drive me nuts. I'm so torn! What should I do?

    Treasure her as a friend, but consider carefully any other option.

    The people who will stand out in your mind in later years are those who are definitely outside the plain old [and untimately boring] 'normal' category.

    Don't let her crazyness bother you too much if you like her.
    We are all a little quirky in someone else's eyes.
    I've been married 25 years and my wife thinks I'm nuts.
    5 years into the marriage I told her that she new it when we got married so "get over it" (jokingly)...and she's been fine with it ever since.

    I'd be careful. You seem more taken by someone liking you than anything. If you're having doubts then you're having them for a reason. Don't get caught up in things.


    And on a serious note. If you do take it further and she puts on a tin foil hat for protection I'd be very worried.

    Listen I have had an experience with a girl similar to that. She claimed she was a "witch" and possesed magical powers... She ended up being out of her Fing mind. Don't do it. It will get worse. If she has told you all of that already, think about the stuff she's not telling you....

    Too late. She's already out to lunch.

    Never, ever date someone who brings an ethereal vampire in her baggage. I talk from experience.

    Seriously, I'm with jlykins. Stay away from her.

    hehe she sounds like a riot :mrgreen:

    I like eccentric people... she may appear boardering on crazy, but i doubt she really is at heart.

    Young people often believe these things (how old is she?) are happening to them to escape the mundane everyday lifestyle... and to prove to herself that she is 'different' from everyday people, however these individuals also grow out of these kind of phases.
    I went to art college for 5 years.. iv seen and heard it all before, Imo, get to know her and see what happens in the near future. She will probably turn out to be a nice open minded person who no longer believes in the vampires etc.

    Orrr she could turn out to be off her meds and you wake up one day tied to the bed with goats blood being dripped on your chest. Too many other women out there to risk it... Hey if you like the thrill of possibly dating a girl that will require a restraining order later on, go for it :thumbup:
