How much time goes by until you stop getting random calls and texts from old dates?

I still get texts from old dates and hookups. Like, once every 6 months, most often from people I dated years ago that I’ve since totally forgotten. It’s weird, especially since I can’t help but be pulled in by curiosity to ask who the hell the random number is. I just got one texting to me to “apologize” for not contacting me after the first date.

I mean, it’s kinda satisfying to turn down people who are clearly seeking booty calls. But come on, this is how far back you’re reaching?
