I think this is the same guy who made a move on someone in my neighborhood who had recently gone thru a divorce. He was quite the schmoozer, and, obvioulsy, very insincere in his proclamations of undying love for her. He introduced himself as Richard Gere and fits all the other descriptions here.

What is this Mr. Midnight reference? I need to find that posting...I will do a search....
Mr. Midnight is a real life character from Andrew Blechman's 2008 book Leisureville. http://www.nytimes.com/2008/06/01/bo...=1&oref=slogin

Leisureville is about retirement communities in the US but has the majority of its chapters on the Villages with a few on Arizona's Sun City for good measure.

"'Donít you miss the real world?' he asks a former teacher named Mr. Midnight, whose main problem is having enough Viagra around to keep up with his social life. 'I donít want the real world anymore,' he says. He just wants sex. 'Whatever happens now, you guys have to worry about it ó it doesnít affect me.' " From link.

When you get 80 thousand people in an area the size of The Villages it's a miracle there are not more reports like this.

Thankfully, this kind of stuff rarely makes the news unless some kind of crime is involved. Most people with mental illness of whatever type are completely harmless. It is only the one in 100,000 or maybe more who goes postal so to speak and gets in the local and/or national news. http://www.nami.org/

Sounds to me like this poor man either has bipolar disorder (not treated with medication) or schizophrenia, poorly treated. He is most likely harmless. We need to all count our blessings. Could be one of us. Poor soul.

A new topic just came up about this guy so I thought I would bring up the old one for people to see.
