If you donít want to go out again, that I request that you call me and make a sincere apology for leading me on (i.e., giving me mixed signals). In my opinion, you shouldnít act that way toward a man and then not go out with him again. Itís bad to play with your hair so much and make so much eye contact if youíre not interested in going out with me again.

In addition, Iím both a right-brain and left-brain man, given that Iím both an investment manager and a philosopher/writer. Thatís a unique characteristic; most people arenít like that'

According to the internet, youíre 33 or 32, so, at least from my point of view, weíre a good match in terms of age. I could name more things that we have in common, but Iíll stop here. I donít understand why you apparently donít want to go out with me again. We have numerous things in common.  No doubt you enjoy men sticking their finger in your ear.

But seriously, "I'm going to spend 1500 words insulting you for being a cocktease, now lets go on a second date" doesn't actually work unless you're paying for her company.  And not even then, if she has standards.

OK so. After a date with a guy I met on OKC, he googled me and sent me this series of emails. He references a couple of texts in which I first rescheduled a second date, and then canceled it due to some texts I'd received from him that were pretty over-the-top.

Quote
How's your day going- so far? ..heck- for that matter, how was the rest of your 4th'eve?

mine was rather chill and uneventful- with the exception, of course, of the constant rattatat'tat of the surrounding neighborhoods. ..t'was rather nice, actually.  just mom, dad, Hans(their dog) and me.   bbq,corn on the cobb, beers.. good times :)

Quote
This may be a little crazy- but.. ..Well, -- And, of course I would have preferred following through with out plans but, I appreciate how our need to cancel has, first of all (through my sinking reaction), further supported my notion of totally digging you- for, it wouldnít have mattered if you didnít. Then it reminded me that attachment to particular outcomes is reckless behavior.  Holding true to a thought of an outcome is fine, I think, as long as the thought-holder surrenders to the will of circumstance and accepts the fact that the Time an outcome occurs is out of their hands, And, that it may never occur at all.   As Yoda recommended, I remembered to ďLet go.Ē   Not of the thoughts of positively harmonious outcomes with you- just of the idea of when we will harmonize, again.

As Iíve been writing this, the thought that this cancellation may have been ďrunning awayĒ has been trying to work its way into my beliefs. ..and though this is possible, naturally, I hope this isnít the case. If that were the case it would be a torturous shame for the both of us- in addition to all those our collaboration would have touched throughout the future of humankind. (damb- thatís deep (lol)) -  trying not to be a drama queen- but, I do seem to be on the edge of babble.

I am a moron.   And, I suspect that you have other, superman-like, options.. of course.   But, I know nothing.   And thatís about all I really know. And, that Iím a moron, as I mentioned.  ..and a bit about photography, I guess.. ..and how to be true myself, and those who wish to be near me.. ..and how to follow through, whole-heartedly, with an objective of my desire.. ..and how to ride the edge of babble as I write.. Ė alright, maybe I do know a few things.

I know youíre wonderful :)

I know Iíd love to know more- everything I may- about you.

I know Iíd love for you to desire the same from me.

I suspect Iím saying too much, too soon, perhaps. Most likely.

I know Iíd better stop now.

 

I hope this, my open lunacy, hasnít compromised your wish to follow through with the request for a beer later in the week.

 

Shut up C****.

Me:
Quote
I don't remember giving you my email address...

Quote
it's on your facebook page.  should I not use it?

Quote
speaking of things on facebook.. your website was there, so I checked it out, of course- and your Beads are amAzing!!!   I love your creations!   Awesome work! :)

Me:

Quote
It is really not OK to contact women you don't know very well using avenues you haven't asked for and they haven't offered... it's stalkery. It's a bit like finding out where they live and then showing up with flowers after the first date. Not romantic, but scary.

Listen, I enjoyed the first date but your subsequent texts indicate that you are clingy and way more invested in someone you barely know than I am at all comfortable with, and on top of that your email last night was pretty much batshit crazy, so no, thanks. I am in full-on red flag land and would like you to forget all my contact info. Thank you.

Quote
huh.. .    ..ok.. ..well,   as you wish.

begging your pardon [Nigel].

you won't hear from me again.

batshit-crazy C****.

be well


Not as insane as the 1600-word missive, but just one of a couple of this summer's more WTF moments.

We need to set up a website kind of like FML or Texts From Last Night, except it's for anonymously posting creepyweird messages from obsessive asshats!


this is a great idea that can in no way backfire




Also, Nigel: my best friend is also part of your club. She is stupidly attractive, especially to men who don't have their frontal lobes screwed on straight. Just recently a dude who still earnestly believes he's getting into her pants some day sent her a pic (completely unsolicited, obviously) of him rubbing his Inflatable Joystick with a pic of her in the background as his fapfodder. :x  That's at the far end of the spectrum of Fucked Up for her, but still.

Sure, only we're dumb, too.

Seriously.  ALL MALES ARE BADLY WIRED MONKEYS.  So, yeah, when you women say "I want to meet a NORMAL guy", we men kind of smile behind our hands and restrain ourselves from telling you the bad news.

Take my case, for example.  I'm a great big bag of unhinged weirdness, which I keep in check via NOT using alcohol or drugs, and concentrating really, really hard.  Mostly because the cops in this town CANNOT take a joke.  Also because it stops being cute and funny after a while, to some people (but not MY people, who are up for any program).

And I'm the harmless kind (at least when it comes to women).  For every me, there's an eighth of a Chris Brown, and for every Chris Brown, there's a quarter of a Richard Speck.  Which kind of puts the earfinger guy in perspective.

But there's only one of him for ten of me, and the math isn't really in your favor.  So, as your spiritual advisor, I suggest you get some eye candy, dope him up with qualludes or roofies until all he can do is breathe and breed, and keep him out back by the garbage cans.  I mean, I don't think it's unreasonable for a gal to have her fun, but not have to handle the awful bullshit that comes along with it.  We men do something like this when we master the art of "having a conversation without actually listening", which is a lifesaver until you get busted out, at which point it's best to look your SO straight in the eye and then beg piteously for mercy.

We aren't deviant.  We just aren't as advertised.  We do not in fact - as Nigel says - "do exactly what it says on the label".

Not all men are deviant fucks.  (The fact that I can say and believe that, despite the bullshit with NYEX, is a testament to my male friends, some of whom are truly awesome.)

I'm just looking for a particular brand of weird, and I can't seem to find it.

So.

When's the last time you got a really good look at THE WALL?  Because I know your brand of weird, and you ain't gonna find it at some hippie ass gallery opening.

Just yesterday, I was told by a guy friend of mine that he believes that there's, "Someone for everyone".

Then, for a split second, I thought..."Holy shit. Maybe, just maybe, there someone I will willingly date, that won't turn into a total fuckwad, and I'll MARRY him. For keeps."

Then I wanted my split second back.

How does this align with Nigel's revelation about Mr Language's "all men are deviant fucks" fallacy?

We aren't deviant.  We just aren't as advertised.  We do not in fact - as Nigel says - "do exactly what it says on the label".

Women know this, of course, and yet there's this weird social fiction that everyone chooses to agree on.

Not all men are deviant fucks.  (The fact that I can say and believe that, despite the bullshit with NYEX, is a testament to my male friends, some of whom are truly awesome.)

However, as I have heard it said, and have repeated, they were given two heads, and there doesn't seem to be enough blood in the fucking world for the poor bastards to run both at once.

That sort of reaches equilibrium at some point.  Or so I am told.

Dunno, myself, but it's a good working theory, anyway.

Been trying to figure out if I'm ready to start shopping around...  I dunno, yet.

I was told, by my GYN that women are at their reproductive peak between 16-25. After that, the risk for disorders skyrockets, and you're better off just not even trying after 32 if you intend to have a complication-free pregnancy. Unfortunately, social "norms" dictates when women SHOULD give birth, not medical facts.

And, of course, I still end up spending 6-8 months of the year "alone", several thousand miles from that person.

Don't get me wrong, I fucking LOVE my job, but that aspect of it is its own special kind of hell. And it also means that someday (probably pretty soon) I'm going to have to choose between my career and having children.

Don't get me wrong, I fucking LOVE my job, but that aspect of it is its own special kind of hell. And it also means that someday (probably pretty soon) I'm going to have to choose between my career and having children.

I envy you that!

On one level, I thought I'd found that... the one person I've known who made me feel not-lonely. But too much other stuff was wrong, or just plain missing.

I am very independent on many levels, which can make me a difficult mate for people who need someone to be joined at the hip... but I'm also very domestic and not cut out for solitary life. It makes me crazy. When people say things like "she just needs a good man to settle her down" they're talking about people like me. In the absence of having that domestic anchor, I go out and get all crazy, but it's not because that's what I want, it's because I don't have someone at home to focus on and do shit with so I find ways to distract myself.
