Isn't this considered "creepy" cyberstalking behavior?

http://shine.yahoo.com/love-sex/you-ve-got-tweets--woman-uses-twitter-to-track-down-missed-connection--love-ensues-173402662.html

What's a modern-day girl to do when she's sure she's just met the guy she's going to marry but didn't get his digits? Take to Twitter, of course. Erica Domesek, who lives in New York City, was traveling on an American Airlines flight from Dallas to Calgary, Canada, when she hit it off with a handsome stranger in the seat next to her. While the pair exchanged pleasantries, they neglected to trade last names or contact information, so Domesek decided to tweet the airline for a little help.



Maybe it was the reference to the classic Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant "Notting Hill" rom-com that made the company give in, but no matter its motivation, American Airlines responded that they would love to help Domesek find her "Happily Ever After." Unfortunately, the airline is unable to give out passenger information (take comfort in knowing AA prioritizes privacy over love). They then asked Domesek to throw out some ideas of her own to track him down.

I'm just hoping this guy knows what's apparently expected of him. This woman has picked him, and let the world know about it, so he'd better not disappoint. My guess is if you had such a wonderful trip with a person on a plane together and wanted it to go somewhere, you might have mutually given out a phone or email?

1. Definitely creepy!

If he wanted her to have his personal info he would have given it to her. You can damn well bet that if a guy called AA for info on the woman he would be on every list imaginable!

2. More just a double standard

And honestly, it's the basis of hundreds of different but similar types of romance movies, TV shows, books, plays etc.

It's standard story structure and it's something that happens often in real life. Just amplified by social media these days.

But while america can go "awww" as it gets national exposure on morning TV and talks shows, I can't imagine it getting the same treatment if it was a guy doing it. Which is unfortunate, because people finding love (as they seem to be here based on what I heard) is worth going to lengths for.

4. I admit my bias here

If a man did this, I'd would be far more creeped out. But I also know it wouldn't be a feel good story and the guy would have the cops questioning him at a certain juncture.

Here we have an attractive successful (well, I guess she might be) woman (with a huge ego obviously) who has very strangely determined this man is to be her "future husband" even though she apparently said little to him and him to her based on what I read. He is of course "handsome", because after all that's really what counts (unless he flashed his wallet or some sort of Rolex at some point I'm guessing), but maybe this poor fellow is a low key private guy who would be horrified, not overjoyed that he's become Hugh Grant to some narcissistic, entitled (yeah, I said it) psycho that gets her jollies living her life online. I've know teenage girls who think this, maybe into their college years....but this grown ass woman is pretty shameless.
