Textbook Dmitri

K, so Court in Michigan met this guy out at a bar. He seemed harmless enough, but Court knew right he wasn’t her type. Still, she didn’t have the heart to give him a flat-out “no” when he asked for her number. (She couldn’t give him a fake one, either, ’cause he the did the “dial his number into the phone and call” thing.)

Says Court: “The first time he called, I talked to him and decided right then I definitely wasn’t interested.” By the end of the conversation, she figured he’d gotten the message…but then he kept calling. And then, texting. When she didn’t respond, Court says, “I assumed he’d take the hint…but I’m not too sure he did.” Um, yeah, you could say that.

Fine, be a bitch then!

      Passive aggressive points to Court who decides to give Ahole her number, hint that she’s not interested and hope he gets the point, then ignoring texts.

      Grow a pair of ovaries and say “I’m not interested.”

      I don’t think anyone says she deserves to be harassed, just that she shouldn’t give her number to people she doesn’t really want to have it. If she knew from the start this guy was a douche– and he is, a creepy one– then it was a monumentally stupid blunder to give him the number.

      She may not deserve to be harassed but she handled this very poorly. He needs to stop being a creepy wanker and she needs to learn to tell people up-front that she’s not interested.

      Hoping that someone “gets the hint” is just cowardly.

      pope is right; in no way do I mean to imply that she deserved to be harassed, or that a firm “no” would have definitely ended any further harassment from the douchebag. But I can’t count how many stalker/harassment/abuse/restraining order stories I’ve heard that start out with “I thought he’d get the hint….”

      I’d rather turn someone down in public and deal with it then than give them any way to reach me. If that means calling someone to walk with me to my car, okay, I’ll do that. If that means asking some poor staff member to call the police/throw the guy out, okay, I’ll do that. Had to call someone and switch tables a few times at one bad job, and while it was awkward, it ended better than it did for girls who caved in or hinted.

      Problem is, she didn’t refuse. She didn’t answer. So essentially she was the bitch. I didn’t read she ever told the man she isn’t interested or not to call. Just “hints”.

      Perhaps her sense of creeps is good but that doesn’t excuse not being polite. Perhaps the escalation could have been avoided if she had been honest.

      I never went back to check this but Lauren’s comment totally made me LOL. Essentially lying and being rude is part of dating and is perfectly acceptable. Gotcha. Being mannerly and honest and saying “I really would prefer you not call me anymore” is far too much to expect from a civilized human being.

      I cry for you kids and the future where “hints” are a totally acceptable way of communicating.
      Wait, not only acceptable but should be EXPECTED.

      I need to go home and make sure my son isn’t such a fool but I know I raised him right so I am not overly concerned.

      Again, the guy was an ass but where is the personal responsibility of the girl who gave her number and then did not communicate that she wasn’t interested? Apparently, she has none.

      Now THAT is a fail.

      His very quick descent from “Hey, wanna go out” to “Fuck you, bitch” makes it pretty clear he had gotten the hint. In my experience, many men pretend not to understand not-so-subtle hints in an attempt to wear women down. It doesn’t work.

      By the way, Chris, women are conditioned to be nice and never say “no” to a man. And when we are assertive, we’re sometimes verbally or physically attacked. In short, shut your trap.

      It’s reasonable to type in someone’s number and then call them, so that they get your number and you can make sure you didn’t make a typo. It’s based on the premise that if you give someone your number, you want them to get it right–a premise which is perfectly acceptable with a classmate or a co-worker. I do it all the time. I’m not testing the person, I’m testing my typing skills.

      If you don’t want someone to have your number, don’t give it to them. Don’t give a fake number, either. Just decline.

      Hey, I can feel for guys who might just be genuine nice guys who get misled because the women you have encountered aren’t used to nice guys approaching them. But, if you get a woman’s number out of her by pulling the old grab her phone and dial your phone with it trick, and she doesn’t return your calls/texts or tries to subtly (or not so subtly) push you away if she does take them, then that is your “thanks, but no thanks.” If she wants to go out with you at all, she’s going to return those calls and act interested in going out. Acting like an asshat when she doesn’t show interest makes you an aasshat, it doesn’t make her a tease/bitch/whore with no manners.

    Okay, he’s stupid.

    BUT, I have to say, I hate it when people handle it the way she did. By not replying. Better send a short text and say: “Listen, it was fun talking to you, but I’m not interested and don’t want to meet up again.” I’d rather get a clear message like that than the chicken-out silence treatment.

    I say: Thumbs down for both!

      Usually it’s not so much PA behavior as just doing what a lot of us girls were taught growing up. It’s rude to just say no. We’re taught to let people down gently or be considered a 1st rate b!tch. Men are taught not to take no for an answer, especially when the ‘no’ is ambiguous. That’s how a lot of these situations happen. The woman thought she had made herself clear while the man thought she was sending mixed signals and decided to press the issue. I personally would’ve said “NO” very clearly from the start, but then again I am The B!tch and everyone knows it.

      I’ve told someone very clearly, reasonably politely, I thought, that they really weren’t welcome to sit with me and my two friends (male). I didn’t say it exactly as I have worded above. It wasn’t the first thing that tumbled out of my mouth, either.

      I had to listen for fifteen minutes while the guy berated me and told me what an outright bitch I was for not wanting to talk to him, so I don’t know if you can ever win in this situation if you are female. He only left (to harass someone else, I guess) when I went to the bartender to complain.

      As for my companions? Yeah, on yah fellas, you did a sterling job ;)

      The label “bitch” holds too much power over some women. We fear being perceived as such.

      Assert yourself. Say what you mean and realize you are not responsible for how it is received.

Eight days, yeah, you’ve been blown off (still doesn’t mean you send these texts to her), but 8 hours?

If you are reading this text, you must have woke up in my garage. Because that’s where I chained you, Jason.

If a woman repeatedly tells you “not interested” or “no, you can’t have my number” and you keep pestering her, don’t be all surprised if she ignores you when you *do* get the phone number. She told you she wasn’t interested the first hundred or so times, why didn’t you f–king listen? She’s just trying to shut you up or get rid of you! DUH!!!

    Usually I would think the silence method was an incredibly immature way to deal with things, BUT, in this situation I think she was right to ignore. This isn’t your normal guy. This type of guy takes any acknowledgement of his existance as proof that he owns you. Even if you’re telling him no. If she would have sent him a text back, no matter what it said, it would have just kept him going. It can get really frightening.

      There are some guys out there who think women are leading them on, but it only exists in their imagination. Guys who think when the cashiers at Burger World smile and say, “You want fries with that?” are really saying, “Oooo, Hottie McHotterson! Do you want me to eat those fries off your chest, sweet thing?”. And when you, the cashier or other uninterested female, says “Have a nice day.” the guy will assume you mean “Have a nice day, McSteamy! I’d love to go out with you! Bug me for my digits! If I say ‘no’ I’m only trying to play hard to get!” Not realizing that *none* of these female is remotely interested in them and the only reason they don’t tell the guy where to cram the special sauce is corporate regulations and the need to hang onto their crap-tacular minimum-wage, retail slave job.

    Some women are too polite for their own good especially when younger. “I didn’t want to be blunt and hurt his feelings.” I am sure in the future she will avoid hints and will always be brutally blunt.

    Some men mistake politeness for interest. “No thank you I don’t want a drink, no thanks I don’t want to dance, no thanks, no thanks,… listen buddy you’re too short to ride this ride find another!” Anyway, I figure she was in a no win situation. This guy’s behaviour is nicely condemned in the follow link.

    these texts are great. they can be read top to bottom or bottom to top and still be funny. i personally prefer the top to bottom form, it makes the guy seem like even more of a loser.

    It’s so much more hilarious when you read it in reverse chronological order (top to bottom).

    And seriously, I’ve had guys give me the hint by not replying to my texts and anyone above age 12 should be able to understand what’s going on without resorting to childish name-calling. There’s something seriously wrong with this man that makes him so angry. Good thing she didn’t go out with him.

    I got a question for you guys…

    How many of these stories involve “I was hoping he’d get the hint”.

    Anyone notice how its every single one of them… and then notice how they involve at least a dozen communications involving “hope he gets the hint”.

    To make it simple for you. To create a story like this takes 2 idiots.

      No, no it doesn’t. It takes one “Nice Guy” who feels entitled to whatever woman he wants.

      If you were female (or even if you’d read the comments, though I don’t blame you since there are a ton this time) you’d know that turning a guy down outright just as often ALSO results in this kind of behavior. Guys like Jason–who apparently lose it completely after waiting LESS THAN 8 HOURS for a response, by the way–are the type to freak the fuck out regardless of how they’re rejected. It happens. A lot.

      At least if you blatantly shoot the guy down in the bar, you have a bunch of witnesses for when he goes balistic. That way the cops have something to go on to find him after they find you in the alley.

    “”No, no it doesn’t. It takes one “Nice Guy” who feels entitled to whatever woman he wants.”"

    No canaduck, it takes one idiot “nice guy” who feels entitled to direct communication and not being lead on.

    And one woman who has no problem leading him on.

    You have excuses for her behaviour.
    I have excuses for neither of them.

    I don’t care what coulda, shoulda, woulda happened. And I know how often women get nasty responses to rejecting a man–

    1) In most of these cases they’re hostile, abrupt in the way they deliver their rejection
    2) His “hypothetically possible behaviour” is no excuse for leading him

      Yes ladies! Damn all of your suspicions that this guy may blow up on YOU. Dash all any & techniques you may have been forced to develop from having that actually happen repeatedly to you before.

      Leading him on for a couple of days is the worst thing you could ever, ever do! I mean, there were plans! It was obviously about to get serious!

      News flash: It’s unrealistic to feel entitled to *anything* from a stranger, whether it be a phone number, respect, honest communication, politeness, whatever. Having expectations of others does not obligate them to treat you the way you’d like to be treated.

      News flash #2: Getting a girl’s phone number doesn’t mean you’re gonna get laid, and it doesn’t mean she’s “leading you on” either, mkay? It means she is giving you an opportunity to show what you’re made of in the sober light of some future day. When it fizzles, it fizzles. Walk it off and get back to the front, soldier.

      DUDE. You think a 6 hour delay in texting means you can call someone a bitch?

      Are you also allowed to smack someone for not getting dinner on the table on time cuz she was talking to her mom on the phone?

      I mean, like, how nasty are you allowed to get if someone doesn’t behave the way you want ‘em to?

      Dudes like you give us all a bad name. Here’s a hint; someone behaving poorly doesn’t give you a right to threaten ‘em. Or call them names. It’s threatening.

    And hold her tight
    So happy together
    If I should call you up
    Invest a dime
    And you say you belong to me
    And ease my mind
    Imagine how the world could be
    So very fine
    So happy together

    That’s not fair to say she handled it poorly. What’s better? Diplomatically avoiding a scene with a psychopath by giving him your number or telling him flat out you’re not interested so he can go nuts right there in person? If there’s someone she really dislikes she should have given that person’s number – otherwise she did the best she could.

    I’m saying this mostly in response to the comments on this post. When men have shown an interest in me and I wasn’t interested in them, I’ve both hinted my lack of interest and also flat out said I wasn’t interested. With both methods, I’ve had men get more insistent and/or flat out angry. I’ve been called a bitch. Why bother asking if I’m only allowed to say yes? Skip the whole pesky asking part and just forcibly carry me somewhere. Or rape me, you stupid assholes. Why not? It’s scary, the thin veneer of normalcy that instantly fades after you dare to say no. Whenever that happens I’m thankful the red flag waved so early.
