This is a question Bizarre leaps of logic

Amorous Badger says: "I once humorously suggested that someone had been internet-stalking a Big Brother contestant. They concluded that I was threatening them. What's the oddest misunderstanding you've been involved in?"

OCD (not being "overly tidy" as some people think)
When we met, she seemed like a demure, if a little shy, beautiful English Rose.

I moved in with her after dating for a few months, and things were going well.

Then the crazy started.

She started spending longer and longer getting ready to go out, or would be reluctant to make decisions about relatively minor events - picking up several jars of curry in the supermarket before choosing the "right" one - various other slightly offish behaviours which were rather minor to begin with and of no great note - until the breakdowns started. It got to the point where she would spend 3-4 hours in the bathroom washing her hands with detergent, and eventually bleach, because if she didn't, "bad things would happen". She would also be unable to open certain doors, have to move certain objects in the house, having to use crudely-fashioned litter pickers to pick things up.

She did eventually confess as to what was going on, that she felt certain "forces" were at work against her, and if she didn't obey the "rules" there would be consequences.

In retrospect I should have been fucking terrified, but she had done a rather good job of hiding these symptoms (that apparently she'd had from a young age) and by that point I was too emotionally invested to leave, so did my best to support her (for years) until the behaviour became too erratic.

The last straw was when she'd taken out one of those ridiculous 1000%apr payday loans of several hundred pounds that she had no hope of paying back (she had been unemployed for 3 years) to buy a fucktonne of meat for a barbeque for all her friends - two of whom showed up looking very embarassed and sheepish - I had to spend the remaineder of my student loan to pay off the debt, causing problems as I couldn't pay the rent on my halls. This was the same week I had to miss an exam at uni to take her to a job centre appointment, as she had missed the bus and was over an hour late. She ended up losing her job seeker's benefit. Oh and she was boffing a lad from her college. And she bought a wolf and refused to train it. A fucking wolf. Yep.

TL;DR Crazy girl believes she has magic powers, fucking muppet doesn't escape fast enough. Also the wolf was a cunt.

Your back.

My back indeed,
I didn't really leave. I've been a lurker here for over 10 years, but didn't want to pollute the place with my inane drivel. I think we're about at my level in QOTW now so I might start posting more :)

Emotionally invested? You fucking girl.

What happened to the wolf?

I believe she still has it
I haven't had contact with her directly, but I have heard she is currently living in a woodland camping site. Sadly I am not making this up. I'm glad I am out of the relationship, which was mentally abusive, but I don't wish her any harm either. The wolf wasn't a pure wolf as such, it was part timber wolf, part malamute. Still essentially feral though. It was a little shit, but I hope she is looking after it...

How does living in a woodland camping site work if she needs to spend hours bleaching her hands?

No idea man, :/
The thing about the OCD is both the triggers and the rituals change. Sometimes it was "contamination" i.e. having to obessively wash, sometimes it'd be like, opening and closing a door 9000 times.

Maybe she just stands in a stream?

I once read a piece about wolves as pets.
Apparently they're pretty good. Being a pack animal, and essentially wary of humans, as long as they know you're not a threat but are boss, you're fine.

It's the wolf-dog hybrids that are the problem: they don't have the same wariness of humans, which makes them think that they can try to rise through the pack hierarchy - and they're better fighters than you.

You can kill a wolf-dog hybrid in about a second...
...just kick it's face off.

Richard Rudgley did a documentary about stone-age life and the interplay between humans and wolves, including a segment with him and a wolf expert in a large forested pen with a pack.

Apparently a viable relationship with a wild wolf is perfectly possible as long as you never ever forget that it is the wolf that adopts the human as a pet, not the other way around. They both had to kneel and wait for the wolf to come to them and sniff the backs of their necks, then were able to approach the pack at rest in seeming safety.

I wouldnt want one.. cats and bunnies seem so much safer.

there was an old anecdote about that
the wolf and the girl get taken to the job centre, as otherwise the wolf would eat the chicken,

then the wolf is taken back home, the chicken is picked up and taken to the halls of residence to be curried and devoured, and the wolf is then left behind as no fucker actually NEEDS a wolf

So your job is safe.

Was the sex great?
It is normal for the amount of mental to match the sex.

Not going to lie, she had some redeeming qualities....
