Weird LinkedIn exchange...

I have a connection that was recently formed with someone I don't know, but who is connected with may people I know. She then messaged me something like "so good to meet you, tell me a little about your practice," etc. So I did (networking- this is how I've gotten clients in the past) and then invited her to tell me about her practice (figuring I could send people her way).

She responded with one or two vague sentences, then a blank space, then "Are you married?"

: confused:

What?? Is she trying to pick me up? Does she think I might need therapy? What does that mean? I'm leaning towards ignoring her, but it's just bizarre!

I'd straight up ask what marital status has to do with Linked In. This person is thinking they are chatting on Tinder or Match.

I haven't responded. It was very odd. She's a real person (based on a website) or someone who made up a fake LinkedIn for this real person. She's connected with a few people I really respect, so I'm tempted to contact them and see if she did the same thing to them. Or he. Or they. Or...?
