Jezebel – A reader emailed us this text exchange that occurred after she went on a “nice” but otherwise not noteworthy first date with a man she met on OkCupid. Afterwards they texted briefly, but she had plans (and also wasn’t sure if she wanted to see him again) so didn’t respond to two subsequent texts he sent over the following few days. After the last message, he didn’t take her radio silence as an indication to cool it; instead, he sent her another text chastising her for not wanting to go out with him because she is a “self involved princess.”
It’s pretty hard to defend a guy who tries to book a date with “Care to grab a libation tomorrow night?” (though obviously given my writing style I do have a soft spot for him dropping needless SAT words) but here it is: This dude sucks, 1000%. But you know whose fault it is? Society’s. Not his. He’s never had to deal with the anxiety of calling some chick’s house and awkwardly asking if he can talk to Becky Sue in the hopes of finger banging her. He doesn’t know a world where you have to date a girl for MONTHS on the off chance she’s putting out. He’s just some try-hard idiot whom this chick should have been able to sniff out as being a tool immediately. A guy doesn’t all of a sudden lose his shit in a hissy fit after just two hours of non-reply without some serious defects and some bright neon signs to point it out; girl chose to ignore it or isn’t good enough to pick it up. Your fault, lady, not Cyrano de Bergerac over here’s.
Also, this guy’s an absolute psychopath but “spree of lunatics have sugared their egos at my expense” is some fucking home run prose that I find impossible to hate on. So sick of chicks always sugaring their egos on me. Men are more than sweet confections to top off the ice cream sundae that is your misguided feminism, I’ve been saying that for years. Women need to learn about it. Women also need to learn to buy thesauruses if they’re going to text with me and this dude. Triple word score pussy for days.
