But really, it’s so fun crushing the little egoes beneath my heel.
So, background. My university has an online ‘romance’ thing. The idea is you post an ad online, and you can chat anonymously to other people on it. Romance is expected, but not required.
I, like many others, merely use it as another way to meet interesting people within the university. I have made this clear in my advert. It includes various lines such as “I am just here looking to make new friends” and “I am not interested in sex”. Further, I make it clear that people asking for sex shall instead recieve sarcasm. Most people I’ve talked to have been fine with this - many are in fact relieved that I’m not looking to get them into bed after 5 minutes chat.
Only one small dark spot. About a week ago I got a message from a random person saying “hi. how are u?” (or something to that effect).
Two strikes already - It’s a very unimaginative way to introduce yourself, and netspeak irritates me. Still, I can get past that.
Two messages later, he basically asks me if I want to have sex with him. I politely decline. He immediately stops messaging me - without so much as an ‘ok, sorry to bother you’.
I then edit my ad to the afore mentioned one - before it was pretty clear, now it’s absolutely specific.
So, flashforward to today. He messages me again. First of all, he starts of with an absolutely identical message. I mention that we’ve done this before, and he responds “Oh, have we? I don’t remember.” (Paraphrasing again).
After double checking that it is in fact the same person, I confirm this. I further point out that he lost interest last time after I told him I was uninterested in sex. Once again… silence.
Two, three hours later. “are u sure you don’t want to give it a try?”
Glee! He pissed me off before, but I was still feeling sufficiently polite to let him off easy. Now I can give him a hard time without guilt. Maybe I’ll feel slightly bad later but umm… no, never mind. I won’t.
So, I pile on the sarcasm. I can’t remember specifically what I said, but basically pointing out that if he hadn’t read my ad then he was an idiot for propositioning me, if he had then he was merely illiterate, etc.
His response (My jaw really dropped at this). “soz, but ur too thick to chat with me.” :rolleyes:
Needless to say, I couldn’t let it rest there - if I could keep him going this was the opportunity for endless fun. (I don’t often get the opportunity to indulge my inner sadist). In the course of this he comes up with gems like “just cuz you have an ad doesnt mean I have to read it!!!” and the like. Eventually he decides that I’m not worth his time. I was griefstricken. Truly.
I mean really - how fucking stupid do you have to be to ask someone for sex three times, after being declined each time, knowing absolutely nothing about them despite the fact that they have freely and easily made such information available. I have no problem with people who are there looking for sex, it’s simply not my thing, but this is really fucking ridiculous (pun not intended). Ah well, at least I managed to meet some other people who were actually interesting.
(Note: The fact that it was a guy asking me was totally and utterly irrelevant. I simply wasn’t interested, and would have been equally uninterested if it had been a woman.)
