I went out a couple of times with this guy, but I think we both knew we shouldn’t be a thing, amicably called it off, said we’d stay friends, and naturally never talked again.
I started using LinkedIn to get more job opportunities around the same time and he came up as a suggested connection. I remembered this was his only sort of social media and clicked on his profile. I checked out his profile a few more times whenever he popped into my mind for some reason with the most recent being today. I told myself it was kinda weird and decided to stop. About an hour later I get a connection request from him. Why would he think it’s a good idea?
Then it hits me: LinkedIn notifies people when someone views their profile. He got a notification, Every. Single. Time. Also turns out that there’s a private mode and this could’ve all been avoided. I don’t know what to do now besides simmer in the embarrassment.
He then text me last week asking me if we should talk, I think I might have gave him the wrong signal by stalking his Linkedin profile.
What should I do? If I meet him, he will get awkward if I don’t meet him he will think I’m some creep hiding behind my computer and looking at his photos.
