In response to Daily Post “Secret Admirers”
You return home to discover a huge flower bouquet waiting for you, no card attached. Who is it from — and why did they send it to you?
I’ve had my shares of secret admirer back in my time. They were more on the stalker side than the admiring actually.
I’ve had a man who “admired me” for several years leaving me poems, roses and displays of great love wherever I went. When I refused or asked for him not to do those things, he’d become rude and violent.
I’ve had one that used to stalk me by car. Wherever I would be, there he was, in his green car. One time he left me a love letter stating that I was a flower in his garden or something like that.
I had another one that used to call me at my parents’ landline and used to ask what I was wearing.
In a nutshell, if I discover a flower bouquet that wasn’t sent by my boyfriend, I would burn it without hesitance. I don’t care who sent it or where it came from. Please leave me alone.
