Continued from here....
I'd already ignored several texts, but the "come see me, we'll make out" got under my skin.
Me: I'm not going to come see you. I cancelled our date. Take care.
Him: Do you think I'm ugly?
Me: Do NOT text me again.
Him: U think I'm ugly :(
Him: Whats your email?
Me: You're freaking me out with all these texts. Think we just need to not talk anymore.
Him: Ur just not being honest I dont believe that age difference sh*t
Him: U didnt like my pics
Me: I'm always honest. At first, it was the age difference. Now, it's the incessant texting. Which, by the way, proves that the age difference would be a problem.
Me: As does the fact that you think I select who to keep in my life based on their looks. That's immaturity. You should stick with girls your own age.
Him: So its better to shut someone out because they actually try to talk to u instead of ignore u?
Me: In a case like this, where I already told you how I feel - yes.
Him: U said you didn't wanna date u didnt say you didnt wanna talk or chill
Me: You asked if I wanted to make out, then asked if I think you're ugly. I'm 38 - not wanting to date means not making out. And ugly or not isn't an issue.
Him: Ur too serious lighten up
Me: Well, there ya go. I'm too old for you.
Him: Just some advice, you wont get anywhere with guys with ur attitude
Me: Thanks for the insight.
.....and the texts continued until Engineer (thank goodness for him) was able to tell me how to block them from my phone, which has been blissfully quiet since.
Looking back - I shouldn't have even talked to him. Where possible, I've set privacy settings on the dating sites to prevent people from contacting me unless they meet a certain age criteria. Where not possible - I guess I'll just have to be more careful.
