Dear John's Brother, or Dumping by Proxy

Dear Jenni,
I'm Susan's friend Kate. Since you won't stop
incessantly pestering her with messages, I'm
responding for her.

When Susan first started chatting with you, she
thought that you were cute and cool. But you came on
a little strong. After meeting you, Susan realized
that exploring bi-sexuality wasn't for her. When you
go online to date, you don't become friends with too
many of your potential dates -- that's not what you
are seeking in that forum. Maybe that relationship
develops eventually, but usually not. If it does, it
has to happen naturally.

Looking at it from the outside, you come off as
desperate, needy, and high maintenance. If you don't
intended to come off this way, you may want to rethink
your approach in the future. There's a line between
showing interest and becoming obsessive and hence
annoying. You crossed this line and then some.
Constant texting,
IMing, e-mailing, and calling constitutes stalking
when the person
you are attempting to contact has asked you to stop.

You can stop asking "how Susan feels." It's really
none of your
business. Your self-worth should not hinge at all on
the opinions of a person that you met ONCE. I know
that rejection isn't nice, but why on earth do you
feel the need to drag this out? Susan has stated,
nicely, that she is not interested in speaking to you
again. Move on.

I am not intending to be harsh, just as I'm sure you
don't intend to come off the way that you do.

Please just stop contacting Susan.

  • Damn, I wanted you to threaten her with a heterosexual male - me.

    But I guess that chance has passed.
