Creepy Creep

Remember Mr Therapy?  That guy whose fiance left him a month before the wedding?  That guy who felt the need to attempt to relay the entire story to me (even though much of it got lost in translation).  Yeah, that guy. 

In 10 days, he has sent me 14 communications.  I’ve responded to 5 of them.  Would you take that as an indication of interest on my part?  Everything I’ve sent has been short and to the point and not at all inviting of further communication.  So, like any sane person would do… he asked me out on Friday night.  I could truthfully tell him that I was booked through the weekend.  He now thinks I’m amazingly popular (rather than insanely busy).

So, I’ve tried to be nice and distant, but this guy doesn’t seem to get the hint.  Time to let him down the hard way?  Block him?  Give him a virtual slap?  Or perhaps the link to this very blog so that he may be able to pick up a few handy pointers…

I know a therapist, here’s his number.

I’m not educated to be a therapist.  I don’t want to be educated to be a therapist.  I’m dealing with my own issues and would rather not try to deal with yours as well.

While I hope you are all open and truthful with me, there is a line and you’ve crossed it.  Go ahead and tell me you’ve been engaged before. I can deal with that.  People are in and out of relationships all the time, but don’t give me the whole sob story about how she left you a month before the wedding and how you’re still heart-broken over it and basically looking for a chick to rebound with.  I’m not that chick.

I feel for you, I really do (but it makes me wonder why she left in the first place).  However, I’m pretty much a clean slate when it comes to relationships.  I’ve dealt with some serious baggage in the past and know enough to know that I don’t want to deal with it again.  You have obviously not been able to reconcile what’s happened to you and really have no business pursuing me until you’ve found a way to deal with it.

With all of that being said, refrain from contacting any other poor, unsuspecting women, delete your Plenty of Fish profile and for goodness sake, please find a therapist before you even consider any semblance of a love life.
