One time, this 30-something year old woman joked about dating me when I was 16. She knew my age and the fact that I was straight, and so I joked along and was all "yeah, totally. Just lemme go gay for you real quick. lol." Apparently she took me completely serious and actually thought we were dating and took offence when I talked about a guy I had a crush on just a day later. She ended up sending me a ton of messages and leaving me voice messages (on Xbox) calling me a horrible person,

That's really scary; I feel for you. Hopefully you can explain it was just a joke, and if that doesn't work, get a restraining order. Hope it all works out for you!

Thankfully phones have a block option these days, so you can simply block someone's number, I just do that instead of changing my number. :)

I had a random person on the internet ask to marry me as an obvious joke. We are now best friends. It happens.

You obviously don't play games or anything online that much because plenty of people make jokes like will you Marry me or have My kids, etc. I play League of Legends and the community is pretty insane, pretty much anything will come out of them they don't really care, btw (Gold 4 Adc main NA)

I think people joke about it all the time. If you have just met someone you should be able to assume they will understand it is a joke. But you are right, some people might not see it that way. But I don't see this as being OP's fault at all :)
