ATTENTION LADIES OF WASHINGTON DC/OKCUPID: STAY AWAY FROM USER ACASTSHADOW (REAL NAME: IAN SMITH)
Backstory: I went on one (1) date with this creep in the spring of 2013. He’d messaged me a few times and I was bored that week, so I met up with him for drinks and dinner. It was a bad date, we didn’t have any chemistry, and I texted him to tell him I’d had a nice time, but I didn’t want a second date.
Since then, for well over a year, he’s been sending me threatening text messages, tweeting degrading and creepy things about me, and continuing to message me on OkCupid. He’s tweeted about slitting my new boyfriend’s throat, and texted me calling me “good girl.” After one particularly scary message, I filed a report with my neighborhood police precinct about this guy, so there’s a precedent in case he ever shows up at my apartment.
DO NOT MEET UP WITH HIM. DO NOT MESSAGE HIM BACK. His real name is Ian Smith. His twitter name is @historyinrust (eta: deleted); avoid him at all costs. He’s scary, and he’s a predator. KEEP YOURSELF SAFE, LADIES!
If you or someone you care about lives in Washington DC, please reblog this. I want every woman who might be at risk for encountering this guy to know.
ETA: I thought he’d deleted his profile, turns out he just blocked me. Be careful, everyone! Thanks to everyone who’s reblogged this.
