How to Lose a Guy
Thanks, everyone for the great comments once again. I tried to respond to each. It was great to get some guy's perspectives.
I see girls all over the world are feeling the same way. I should have titled my last post, "Why Don't Guys Call?" rather than "Why Guys Don't Call", because I didn't really answer that. I just think it's easier for them and it also creates more of a distance and that is why they don't call to talk!
Perhaps I should turn my e-mail off too for a while. This would take care of the past morons who have e-mailed me within the past week. I will copy them below to show you just how moronic.
(From past guy who resurfaced last week, who I have not responded to about meeting up again. Note he is older...38 and SO immature).
> Why won't u friend me on FB? (Facebook) I want to see ur profile pics and how hot you look!<
From Brit guy I had a couple dates with in May:
> Are you back in the city? Am in the mood for some home-cooked fare. What do you say? <
Implying once again I am to cook for him?
From Brit guy from a couple years ago I contacted one pathetically lonely night in NYC when I was thinking back to possibilities I could have a summer fling with since he recently moved to NYC:
>So, where did we leave off last month? You showing me around the city? I have been involved although now on the rocks a bit as she will be overseas all summer. Would still love to see where you live. I have flatmates. ;-) xxxxx, M
Ugh!! Triple delete!!!!!!!
And the worst...
From the older attorney guy from Alaska (where there are supposed to be nicer men!!), who I met on a trip in Seattle and he came to NYC and took me out once.
Pompous prick. His last e-mail bragged about how he spent 27K shopping on a vacation!
> Seems like forever since I heard from you. I think you should come to Anchorage to celebrate your one year jobloss anniversary. What are you up to these days??? Are you working? If not, are you homeless yet? Must be in NYC. Call me. Write me. Run away with me.
Which leaves me with my question of the day:
What is the best way to lose a guy? I don't respond to this Alaska attorney guy EVER. But I have been getting voice mails (yes, he is actually one who calls) and e-mails from him for the past 6 months. I mean, why doesn't he give up?
Doesn't he get it??
I used to be too nice and send short e-mail responses back but now I just ignore but still they get in touch. Perhaps I need to be blunt. Say it as I feel and then it will end. But ignoring is a lot easier. And yes, I now see why guys do it!
And just as I look back at all these jerky e-mails I receive one very, very sweet one from neighbor. Does a NICE guy really exist for me? Maybe, just maybe I have really found one?? As I read it, I can't believe what it says. And more on that tomorrow....
